"I hate that I even have to say this, but in response to all the questions that are coming my way right now... I'm choosing not to speak right now on the details of my relationship, because at the end of the day anyone can put on an ACT or throw words together to form any narrative they want," Clare wrote.
"What I will speak on is emotionally and physically I'm going through a lot with healing from my recent surgery still, and my mother being placed on hospice care now."
Clare's message served as the caption to a photo appearing to show Clare's hand holding her mother's hand.
Clare, who recently had her breast implants remove to hopefully solve a long health crisis, continued in her post, "So my energy is focused on grieving, healing, and being present at home here in Sacramento while trying to share and help others going through similar life experiences as I'm sharing today."
"I am just thankful for the people in my life who offer genuine unconditional love with no personal gain, and stand by me through thick and thin," Clare added.
"ESPECIALLY WHEN THE CAMERAS ARE OFF with no accolades. Actions speak for themselves."
Clare's emphasis on certain words and phrases seemed to be the Season 16 The Bachelorette star taking jabs at Dale.
But it appears their reconciliation was short-lived.
A source told The New York Post earlier this week that Clare and Dale's relationship "didn't end well" in September and the pair couldn't agree on multiple significant relationship issues, including what state they wanted to live in and how soon they wanted to begin having children.
Breakup rumors sparked when fans noticed Dale had celebrated his 33rd birthday late last month without Clare, and he was also spotted in public multiple times with friends -- at a movie screening and Coldplay concert -- but not the blonde beauty.
In addition, Dale also attended the September 19 wedding of a friend by himself even though Clare had also been invited as Dale's guest, according to Us.
According to a recent Reddit thread, Clare had also recently posted an ominous message on Instagram Stories about trust in relationships.
Three weeks have passed since Clare and Dale lasted posted anything about each other on Instagram, and they are typically very vocal about their romance and whereabouts.
The last Instagram post of Clare and Dale together dates back to September 10, when Clare shared a slideshow of photos from the U.S. Open tennis tournament, one of which featured Dale by her side along with fellow The Bachelorette couple Katie Thurston and Blake Moynes.
Earlier this summer, Clare and Dale's relationship seemed stronger than ever. They had even been spotted wearing matching rings.
"They are engaged again, but a second proposal did not happen," a source close to Clare told E! News in July. "Clare has been wearing her ring for months and put it back on once Dale stepped up and they decided to give their relationship another shot."
"It's more of a promise and commitment from Dale and there's no wedding planning at this time," the source added.
"They had a conversation over a month ago about their future and decided that they wanted to be engaged again... They aren't rushing anything and aren't even living together permanently yet."
An insider also told Us at the time that Clare and Dale were "happy" together and very much in love.
Dale has been living in New York City while Clare has been holding down her fort in Sacramento, CA, where she takes care of her mother suffering from Alzheimer's.
Clare's journey on The Bachelorette's sixteenth season in 2020 ended prematurely after about two weeks. Producers planned a steamy overnight date for the couple and then Dale proposed marriage seemingly the next day.
