Married At First Sight’s KC Osborne recently announced her split from boyfriend Jason Engler because the pair ‘just didn’t align’.

A source said: ‘Jason pulled the plug on their romance after KC blindsided him by telling him she was going on Ex on the Beach, but wanted to get back together afterwards like nothing ever happened.’

‘It’s ridiculous people think that KC broke up with Jason,’ the source added.
‘KC was like, “Oh, hey babe, I’m going on a dating show – see you in six weeks!” He was completely dumbfounded by it.’
‘She had been waiting for the chance to get back on TV and wasn’t missing the opportunity,’ they said.
Having her cake and eating it too: ‘Jason pulled the plug on their romance after KC blindsided him by telling him she was going on Ex on the Beach, but wanted to get back together afterwards like nothing ever happened,’ a source told Daily Mail Australia
‘It’s one of the many reasons’: The fresh information comes just hours after Jason opened up about his break-up with KC in a series of videos on Instagram Stories
‘KC didn’t ask Jason – it was more of a “I need to do it”. She was just hoping he would understand,’ the insider claimed.
The fresh information comes just hours after Jason, 36, opened up about his break-up with KC, 32, in a series of videos on Instagram Stories.
‘I’m not going to get into details of why obviously. She said something about alignment, she’s going far left, I’m going far right,’ he told his followers.
‘No, we don’t really talk, not that friendly with each other anymore unfortunately. Is it because she’s going on a dating show? Possibly. I don’t even know if she’s going on it.’
Jason went on to say the Ex on the Beach rumour was ‘one of the many reasons’ for their split.
KC announced her break-up with Jason last month during a Q&A on Instagram.
When a fan asked what happened between the pair, she wrote: ‘We just don’t align with each other. That’s that. I’m good. I’m happy.’

Jason’s video comes days after it was reported that KC was set to reunite with her ex-boyfriend Michael Goonan on the new season of ITV’s Ex on the Beach.
A source told Daily Mail Australia that KC was told ‘she needed to make it clear she was single’ ahead of her appearance on the show.
‘KC and Jason weren’t just a one-time hook-up. They were obsessed with each other,’ they said.
‘He was serious about their relationship and even flew down to Sydney to hang out with her.’
