Reasons Behind Her Failed Engagement

People were left scratching their heads at what might have caused Kacie McDonnell to call off her engagement to Aaron Murray. It was later rumored that they parted ways because the footballer did something he shouldn’t have done with Andi Dorfman, who was engaged to Josh, his older brother. While this claim hasn’t been substantiated in any meaningful way, many have embraced it, because Josh called off his engagement with Andi two weeks earlier.

Kacie’s grandmother further added fuel to the rumors by saying that Aaron knew what he did, and he had to live with it. When quizzed further on whether she was referring to Aaron’s alleged affair with Andi Dorfman, Kacie’s grandmother replied that it could be and that she can’t take the chance of that coming back on Kacie who has moved on with her life. However, this is not the first time such an incident happened between the brothers as they allegedly had affairs with a lady named Brittany McCord while they were in a relationship with their respective fiancées.
