"Staying at Brie’s because you all know why," Nikki said in the video from Brie's San Diego home. "I just wanted to say hi to you guys."
"I know I’ve been MIA and I’ve kind of been hiding out, but I wanted to reach out to you all and thank you all for your love and support," she shared. "Can’t tell you how much it meant to me, especially through a really difficult time."
"It’s a really good season, it’s going to be a tough one for me to watch. Hey, that’s life, right?" Nikki said in her YouTube video. "Again, thank you for all your love and support with all of that. It’s been a tough time. But we can save that for another vlog."
"Nikki and John truly love each other, but they will never have the same view on a perfect future," the source claimed. "Nikki has always dreamt of having a family of her own and John does not want children and that was the main cause of their breakup. They are both dedicated to their careers, but Nikki wants more than just that."
In an interview with ET last month, John admitted his breakup from Nikki "sucks."
"There's no other way to say [it]," he expressed. "I love Nicole with all my heart, and that's that."
