Earlier this month, a source told PEOPLE that Prewett was having a “tough time” following her split from Weber, 28.
“She really cares for Peter and wanted to work through their challenges to see if they could have a future together, but it just got too difficult and seemed like everything was against them,” said the source.
At the end of season 24, Prewett — a devout Christian who has vowed to save herself until marriage — walked away from Weber, whose family had expressed concern that his lifestyle wouldn’t match up to hers.

The two reunited during the live After the Final Rose special, but his mother Barbara’s staunch disapproval stole the show. “He’s going to have to fail to succeed,” his mom said on the episode. “All his friends, all his family, everyone that knows him knows that it’s not going to work.”
At the time, a source told PEOPLE that Prewett was “saddened” after her exchange with Weber’s mom.
“She is very saddened by everything that’s transpired and feels badly if she ever unintentionally hurt the Weber family,” the source said. “She’s trying to stay positive, and leaning on her friends and family right now.”
