Tayshia Adams walked off stage after opening up about her recent separation from Zac Clark.

The reality TV star got emotional during the latest episode of "The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All" show on Monday, December 6, as reported by E!.

The ABC network special was initially meant to give "The Bachelorette" star Michelle Young the chance to address her past, but Adams also used this opportunity to clear the air.

Tayshia Adams Broke Down While Addressing Her Breakup

During Monday's episode, Kaitlyn Bristowe took a moment to ask Adams, her fellow co-host, about the status of her relationship with Clark.

The former spin class instructor advised the 31-year-old to break her silence about her now-ex-fiancé rather than allow the public to continue writing the narrative.

The former leading lady on "The Bachelorette" broke down in tears as she shared her side of the story. The TV personality said:

"All I have to say is that I'm heartbroken. But we tried really hard and I still love him very much. And I'm not sure what the future holds."

Adams turned to Bristowe for support as the co-host understood her pain as a fellow Bachelorette who endured a post-show breakup from her ex-fiancé, Shawn Booth.

Once the "DWTS" alum noticed the conversation was affecting her friend's decorum, the 36-year-old changed the topic to Young's Bachelorette suitor, Rodney Mathews.

However, the ABC star couldn't control her emotions and was forced to leave the stage. The TV personality's relationship with Clark ended less than a year after the addiction specialist proposed.

What Went Wrong Between "The Bachelorette" Stars?

Last month, The Blast shared the relationship timeline of the reality TV stars, which began on season 16 of "The Bachelorette" series.

Adams and Clark became a fan-favorite couple after they made it to the show's finale and sealed their blooming romance with a dazzling diamond ring.

The former partners were dancing on cloud nine at the time as they would happily gush about each other in interviews or flaunt their romance on social media.

Earlier this year, the "Bachelor In Paradise" contestant confessed she was "obsessed" with her ex-fiancé during an interview with Marie Claire.

The TV host described Clark as everything she needed as she revealed the former addict was helping her learn to trust people again.

Back in November, the addiction specialist praised the 31-year-old on Instagram for her amazing performance in the TCS New York City marathon.

Although the pair have gone their separate ways, sources claimed that "The Bachelorette" stars still cared for each other but no longer in romantic terms.

The TV Personality's Ex-Husband Criticized Her Time On The Show

Last year, The Blast revealed that Josh Bourelle, Adams' ex-husband was not pleased with the way his former partner painted him on "The Bachelorette."

During an appearance on the "Reality Steve" podcast, Bourelle stated he wasn't the only person responsible for his failed marriage with the reality TV star. 

He confessed that their relationship had hit a rough patch where intimacy was "seriously lacking," which influenced him to cheat on Adams.

However, Bourelle pointed out that his ex-wife painted him as a serial cheater on the show to boost her TV appearance, whereas there was only one case of infidelity.
