The 40-year-old also shared an Instagram sharing a Walt Whitman quote, "We were together. I forgot the rest." 

 

As for Bella, she has remained mum on the split but a source revealed to People, she is "devastated," as, "this was supposed to be the happiest time of her life. He ruined it and blew everything up."

 

The source continued by adding, "He's an incredibly dedicated, driven, ambitious guy. And for the longest time, he said he didnt think he had room in his life for a spouse or kids. It seems like in the end that was still the truth. But in that case, he never should've proposed, let alone in front of millions of people. Now shes heartbroken."
