Just weeks after 'Bachelor in Paradise' stars Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton split, the couple is finally speaking out about their break-up. During Sunday night's "Bachelor: Countdown to Nick" special on ABC, the former lovebirds will appear in a previously taped interview with host Chris Harrison, finally putting to rest all of the rumors about their split.

In addition to Josh and Amanda, the special will feature a look at all of Nick's girls who will appear on the upcoming season, and an update on the relationships of other "Bachelor" franchise favorites including Carly and Evan from "Bachelor in Paradise," and some other familiar faces — Ashley and J.P. Rosenbaum, Sean and Catherine Lowe, Des and Chris Siegfried, Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell, and Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth.

Why did Josh and Amanda split?

After getting to know each other for about three weeks during the filming of "Bachelor in Paradise" last summer, Josh proposed to Amanda on the season finale despite other cast members' warnings that Josh had anger issues — something they based on what Josh's ex, "Bachelorette" Andi Dorfman wrote about in her book, "It's Not Okay."

Josh quickly moved in with Amanda and her two children, relocating from Atlanta to California shortly after filming wrapped. The couple was reportedly raking in the big bucks while they were together, with TMZ reporting that Amanda was bringing in as much as $13,000 per month from endorsements on social media and her fashion blog. Josh was reportedly making at least $10,000 per month for endorsements and through his Advo-Care business.

Love or money?

It appears that the money didn't really matter in the end. Blogger Reality Steve reported the break-up days before Josh moved back to Atlanta and cited an argument the couple had at Becca Tilley's L.A. YouTube launch as the reason behind the split. Apparently Josh got mad that Amanda was drinking during a girls weekend away and stormed out of the launch party.

Whether the couple will address the argument during their sit-down with Chris Harrison isn't likely. Fans will probably see the couple say that they love each other but it just didn't work out, and all the while, there will be a big question begging to be answered — did Amanda realize that what Andi Dorfman wrote about Josh's anger issues was correct, or did their relationship fail because they barely knew each other when they got engaged?

Watch "The Bachelor: Countdown to Nick" special at 8 p.m.
