For weeks now, rumors have been buzzing among fans about “Bachelor in Paradise” alumnus Danielle Maltby and her recent breakup with Michael Allio. You may recall that Michael confirmed the breakup during an exclusive interview on Jason Tartick’s podcast, but now Danielle is telling her story. This weekend, the reality star used her Instagram Stories to shed light on their sudden breakup, offering insights you won’t find anywhere else.
If you’re like me, you’re probably dying to know what happened. Danielle Maltby, always in favor of transparency, explained pretty clearly. “This breakup was not a mutual decision arriving at some perception of incompatibilities,” she wrote. “However, I do hope the best for Michael, and I will always have [his son] James in my heart as we move forward separately.” In simple terms? This wasn’t an “amicable” goodbye or a joint decision; it’s a situation she must now navigate alone.
And guys, it doesn’t stop there. If you wanted to read between the lines on her Instagram Stories, Danielle also said, ” don’t regret the love I gave for a second.” She has had a tough time over the past few months, but is slowly finding her balance even after this very public breakup.
The Heartbreaking Details of Danielle’s Podcast
Danielle didn’t just limit herself to Instagram; she had more to share. In her own podcast, she gave even more details about the breakup, and frankly, it’s a tearjerker. “What’s hard in talking about this really isn’t the procedure itself, it’s what came after,” she revealed. What came next was that Michael dumped her a day after her egg retrieval procedure.
She delved deeper into the subject and confessed: “The day after Michael and I got home from freezing my eggs, he … he broke up with me and I was very, very blindsided by it.” She doesn’t hold back on how she’s feeling, either: “I’m grieving the loss of him. I’m grieving the loss of the future that I really believed in and I’m grieving the loss of James.”
To add even more emotion, Danielle spoke about the hormonal impact of her egg retrieval procedure. “Coming off the hormones involved with egg retrieval and dealing with a breakup is not easy,” she stated. The process, she said, was “beautiful and memorable,” but it is now overshadowed by the grief of their separation.
So far, Michael has not responded to Danielle’s statements, leaving fans and viewers in suspense and speculation. And while the details are still unfolding, one thing is certain: Danielle is taking it day by day and leaning on her support system of friends and colleagues to help her through it.
