"It hurts to announce that at this moment, we have mutually decided to separate. Never did we imagine this scenario, but we've come to a point where we both need to work on ourselves," the couple said in the statement.
"We are best friends that love and care for each other so deeply. We've appreciated everyone's love and support so far throughout our journey and we just ask that you please respect our privacy as we navigate through this."
Representatives for Krystal and Chris did not immediately respond when contacted for comment, People reported.
Chris and Krystal reportedly exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony officiated by The Bachelor franchise host Chris Harrison at the Vidanta Hotel, and their wedding aired on Bachelor in Paradise's sixth season in Summer 2019.
Chris and Krystal not only left Paradise with each other, but they also managed to rehab their images and reputations after receiving "villain" edits on Becca's The Bachelorette season and Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s The Bachelor edition, respectively.
"I was very thick-skinned and hard-shelled when I got to Paradise," Chris previously told People. "I was not myself. I was trying to act like this tough guy, that I had an ego."
He continued, "[Krystal] pulled me aside and said, 'You need to be more self-aware or you're going to lose friendships here and you're going to lose me.' I realized that this woman came out of nowhere to give me direction. I felt it from her heart and I realized that if I don't change now and be vulnerable, I'm going to lose this incredible woman."
In October 2018, Krystal and Chris announced they had purchased a home in San Diego, CA, and were moving in together.
Chris reportedly explained at the time things had happened "fast" because a few short weeks of dating in Paradise is the "equivalent to months of dating" in the real world.
