‘Golden Bachelor’ Gerry Turner reveals Theresa Nist prenup bombshell amid shock split

Fans of “The Golden Bachelor” were stunned when stars Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist announced their split just three months after tying the knot on Friday, April 12.

The reality TV couple broke the news of their divorce during an appearance on Good Morning America, leaving many questions unanswered.

The pair had exchanged vows in a live-broadcast ceremony in Palm Springs on January 4. However, their marriage was short-lived, prompting speculation about a prenuptial agreement and the fate of Theresa’s engagement ring.

During the interview, Nist admitted with regret that her Neil Lane diamond ring would no longer be hers. “I think that’s the rule, I think I have to give this ring back. Sad to say,” she sighed.

Turner added, “But, you know what, we don’t have to give back the memories.”

ABC anchor Juju Chang confirmed that the couple did sign a prenuptial agreement and advised others to consider taking similar precautions.

Their engagement in November 2023 had garnered significant attention, especially due to Turner’s grand gesture with a custom-made princess cut ring. The ring, adorned with two baguette-cut diamonds and 128 small round stones totaling 3.15 carats, held profound symbolism for the couple.

Turner shared with People in December the importance of the ring, stating: “The symbolism of it is so important. It was just like, the minute she slipped it on, it was like, ‘Oh my god, this is that joyful happiness that I want to feel, that I want everyone to see.’”

Renowned jewelry designer Neil Lane also spoke about crafting the ring, emphasizing how special it was to create something for two people getting a second chance at love. “I think maybe we were losing the significance of a ring for a while, and now we have two people that really… that significance of the ring, even though it’s a small little jewel, it embodies their affection, their future, their lives together,” he told People. “It’s more profound in a way… maybe it’s a different profoundness.”

In their emotional Good Morning America interview on April 12, Turner revealed that he and Nist had numerous heartfelt conversations about their relationship and living arrangements, ultimately deciding to end their marriage. “We just feel like it’s best for the happiness of each of us to live apart,” he explained. Despite the separation, Turner insisted he still had love for Nist, stating: “I still love this person. There’s no doubt in my mind.”

During the interview, the couple held hands and acknowledged that they are both still looking for love, just not with each other.
