Hersey said in a post on his own account that he and Thurston are "no longer dating."
"I love being able to share special moments with you all -- the funny ones, the happy ones, the outrageous, embarrassing, and heartfelt ones. But I don't know if it will ever get easier to share the sad ones," Hersey wrote.
"As Katie stated earlier, we are no longer dating. This decision was not made lightly, and it was obviously not an easy one to make," he added.
"I appreciate every one of you that has supported us throughout this journey. We could not (and would not) be here without you," Hersey said.
