Bachelorette star Clare Crawley has broken her silence on her split from Dale Moss saying she is ‘crushed.’
But her admission was overshadowed by a new report from E! News that the former football star had cheated on Clare throughout their engagement – which lasted five months.
The site later offered up the name of the woman they claim is romancing Moss: New York City real estate agent Eleonora Srugo.
Breaking her silence: Bachelorette star Clare Crawford has broken her silence on her split from Dale Moss saying she is ‘crushed’
While he has reportedly been in communication with Eleonora ‘since at least late 2019,’ he previously insisted to the 39-year-old hairstylist that they were only in a ‘business relationship.’
‘Clare has always been skeptical,’ an insider alleged, noting the male model and Eleonora, who works for the company Douglas Elliman, ‘would sneak around New York City, on trips Crawley was not present.’
‘She never trusted the friendship and thought it was shady,’ a source added.

Is this Dale’s dame? The site later offered up the name of the woman they claim is romancing Moss: with Eleonora Srugo
Real estate expert: ‘Eleonora knew real estate was her calling from early on, graduating from Boston University’s Questrom School of Management only to return to the city she loves to start her career on the streets of downtown NYC where she grew up,’ her bio says
Among ‘proof’ of his cheating, eyewitness told the outlet he was seen ‘enjoying a late-night candlelit dinner at Cipriani Downtown’ as he flirted and laughed with this woman, not long after their proposal aired on ABC in November.
DailyMail.com has reached out to reps for Moss regarding the cheating claims, who did not immediately respond.
The news comes after just hours after Crawley broke her silence about their split for the first time, after Moss first confirmed their breakup over Instagram on Tuesday.
Just five months after prematurely exiting her season of The Bachelorette to accept a proposal from the retired athlete, 32, Crawley claimed she only learned Moss would be announcing the devastating news after he posted about it.
‘I was made aware of a ‘mutual’ statement at the same time you all were, so I’ve needed some time to really digest this,’ she told her one million followers.

She continued: ‘Speaking for myself, my intentions with this relationship have always been very clear, so the truth is I am crushed.’
‘This was not what I expected or hoped for and am still trying to process this,’ the Sacramento-born beauty explained. ‘2020 was one hell of a year, with COVID, battling severe anxiety post-show, balancing a public new relationship, all while slowly losing my mother. It hasn’t been ideal circumstances, but that is life right. I have been looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel.’
While Crawley pointed out their ‘relationship was not perfect,’ she said she ‘was genuinely invested with all of my heart.’
‘I may not have all the answers, but I do know this — I will continue to show up, stand by my word, and be committed to love,’ she concluded. ‘XO Clare.’
She opted to disable comments on the post, presumably to avoid criticism, just like Moss did for his announcement post.
In his statement, he said ending their whirlwind romance was the ‘healthy decision’ and that they ‘only hope the best things for one another.’
Her words: ‘We appreciate the love and support we’ve received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time,’ Moss said in his own statement
‘We appreciate the love and support we’ve received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time,’ Moss added.
He went on to say that he and Crawley both ‘strongly believe in leading with love and always remaining true to oneself,’ which he noted their ‘families have taught and instilled’ in them throughout their lives.
‘We only hope the best things for one another. – DM,’ the star ended his note.
It’s there in black and white: The statement was long and also signed by Moss
Meanwhile, it didn’t take long for Clare to receive a coffee date offer from The Bachelorette #16 contestant Spencer Robertson, but it’s unclear if she accepted.
Crawley famously eliminated all the contestants during her season in episode four – which was taped in August – to get engaged to Moss.
The Special Olympics global ambassador retired from the NFL in 2014 after playing wide receiver for the Chicago Bears, Los Angeles Kiss, Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Green Bay Packers.
