James and Raquel confirmed their breakup with identical Instagram posts on December 5. “After these 5 wonderful years we had together, we decided we have two different goals and made the decision to call off the engagement,” the statement, which was posted alongside a photo of the duo, read.
It went on read, “We love each other very much, but we aren't in love anymore. We want nothing but the best for each other so please keep any thoughts positive. Sending Love.”
Raquel and James dated for several years and shared their ups and downs with viewers before announcing their engagement in May 2021. Vanderpump Rules fans witnessed the Coachella-themed proposal in an October episode during Season 9 of the show.
As they embark on a new chapter, both James and Raquel are staying busy with their own business endeavors. James continues to focus on his DJing career and recently teased new music on Instagram.
“2021 was a crazy year but also was an amazing year, thank you all for allowing me to what I love and follow my dreams! ….22 is about to be a big year,” he wrote in a post on December 1.
