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.

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.
