We might never truly know what led to the breakup of seriously hot couple Chris Appleton and Lukas Gage. Yet rumors are now swirling about the state of their relationship before things fizzled, and it's not pretty.

Since the news of their divorce hit the internet, the couple has mostly been radio silent about the details. But now, insiders are talking to The Daily Mail.

As reported by Daily Mail, a bunch of bad behavior is to blame on both sides, according to insiders.

Appleton, 40, filed for divorce on Monday, citing "irreconcilable differences." However an insider said it was actually Gage who ended the relationship.

"Lukas broke it off because Chris was controlling and possessive, and he really thought that he was the most important person on earth," an insider told

Appleton reportedly filed for divorce to "save face" and "conveniently waited until after the wedding episode aired on the Kardashians," They added, "Everyone thinks it's so shady."

Additionally, the source alluded that the couple had an open relationship because they "played" together.

However, another source countered: "There was never an open relationship, Chris never cheated on Lukas. The timing of the filming is irrelevant to the episode, there was no choice but to file when he did."

They added, "There was a side to Lukas that Chris did not see prior to the marriage and this being Chris's first marriage he went with a lot of love."
