Soon The Bachelorette fans will find out who will get the final rose from Hannah Brown. There also might be responses to some of the rumors about the contestants.
Chris Harrison said he dug into Peter Weber’s ex-girlfriend and casting drama. Find out what he said and more.
Peter Weber’s ex accused him of dumping her to join the show
The pilot has gotten very far this season of The Bachelorette. He was a fan favorite, but his past came back to bite him when his ex-girlfriend spoke out.
Model Calee Lutes claimed her relationship with him was very serious. “He told me he loved me for the first time in October, and we talked almost every time we saw each other about how we were going to make it last long term,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
She continued, “He wanted me to move out to L.A. to be with him, and he wanted us to get an apartment together. I was open to moving out there for a year or so, to give our relationship a fair chance, but he told me he didn’t want me out there temporarily… he wanted me out there ‘forever.'”
That all changed when they FaceTimed two days before Christmas and Weber ended things. “I thought there was another girl, so I looked at his recent followers on Instagram, and noticed that a Bachelorette producer had recently followed him. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but I knew there was something he wasn’t telling me,” said Lutes.
Some have defended Weber since the rumor started
Lutes’ claim didn’t look great, but not everyone was ready to turn on Weber. Tanner Tolbert, who previously was on Bachelor in Paradise, defended him.
“Do I think Peter was a little shady with this girl, based upon the story? Yes. Do I think he was a good boyfriend to this girl? Probably not. But do I think he’s OK to break up with her for whatever reason he wants? Yes,” Tolbert told Entertainment Tonight.
She added, “People break up every day in the real world for a zillion different reasons. And to be honest, getting the chance to go on a TV show is a decent reason, if you want to. He obviously valued this TV show opportunity more than their relationship, and that’s his call.”
Chris Harrison said he did some digging into Weber’s drama
We will probably get Weber’s side of the story on After the Final Rose. The host said he has more information since Weber’s ex spoke out.
“Peter is going to have a little explaining to do. I know more about Peter, just because I did some digging. Because some allegations were made in her claims that had to do with us and casting, so I was just curious so I asked around,” he said according to Entertainment Tonight. “In that regard, I’m less worried and less intrigued about Peter’s situation. Because I know some truths that either I’ll explain or Peter will explain.”
He went on to say, “Peter’s ex… has her version… it might be her truth, because that’s her perspective of being broken up with is you’re hurt and you didn’t see this coming. Maybe he did.”
Fans will have to wait and see if Harrison will confront him about the rumor on After the Final Rose.
