KATIE Thurston threw shade at her ex Blake Moynes with an emotional post about "learning and growing" from her "mistakes."
The Bachelorette star "may be looking for love again" after her "embarrassing" split.
Katie, 30, took to her Instagram stories to share a message about "love and support" as she recovers from her public breakup.
The reality star filmed her black and white cat sitting on a chair in her living room while a love song played in the background.
The lyrics said: "I don't want it if it's fake, I don't want it if it's just for show, for show.
"I just want it if it's real and I'm thinking I should let you know, you know the superficial love thing," the voice sang as she zoomed in close on her pet.
Katie captioned her post: "Thank you to everyone who has shown their love and support.
"You can either spend every day convincing yourself things are fine. Or you can accept what it is and learn and grow from it," the TV personality encouraged.
"And remember. You don't owe anyone anything. Life is too short. Surround your personal universe with joy," she finished.
CALLING IT QUITS
Katie's emotional message followed the news of her split from Bachelorette winner Blake Moyne.
The duo met when Katie led season 17 of The Bachelorette, and they became engaged during the season finale.
The pair both shared identical posts on Monday, reading: "It is with mutual love and respect that we have decided to go our separate ways.
"We are so grateful for the moments we shared together and the entire journey that has unfolded this year, but we ultimately have concluded that we are not compatible as life partners, and it is the most caring choice for both of us to move forward independently.
"We ask for kindness and privacy as we both navigate this transition. Both of us will forever want the best for one another and ask you to please support us in our decision."
Earlier this week, The Sun exclusively revealed that Katie was "embarrassed" by her breakup.
“Katie is embarrassed, for sure," a source close to the TV star shared.
“This is not the outcome she wanted and she really, really wanted to find her person.
“But they both appear to love their newfound fame so I wouldn't be surprised if either, or both, end up on Bachelor In Paradise next year," the insider claimed.
Noting that Katie's ex has been living in Canada, they added: “Blake could even end up on the Canadian Bachelor.
“That's not off the table. I'm certain they would both say 'yes' to the opportunity if it presents itself but right now they both need time to process this breakup."
Fans had been speculating for weeks that the couple had called off their engagement.
Some of their followers noticed they weren't liking each other's social media posts.
At the time, Katie hit back at speculation by tweeting: "Imagine your fiancé has been on his stories for weeks in Kenya working his ass off and yet this is what some people notice."
The Bachelorette star then shared a screengrab of a fan's comment which read: "You and Blake are not liking each other's posts. Is all ok?"
Katie's comment could be seen underneath reading "lol yes."
LONG DISTANCE WOES
The Sun also exclusively revealed that Katie and Blake’s split was due to “distance,” as she lives in San Diego and he resides in Canada.
Distance won only one of their issues, as the insider also claimed: "Another big thing they had issues with was their communication styles.
“Katie is much quicker to call little things out whereas Blake just lets things slide.
“Her outbursts eventually became too much for him to handle."
