Jed Wyatt’s Ex, Haley Stevens, Spent Time With Father During ‘Bachelorette’ Finale
She posted on Instagram Tuesday a photo of her and her father. She captioned the photo with, “Can’t think of a better way to spend this evening with the best man I’ve ever known. I love you dad.”
She also added a pink heart emoji.
Haley revealed to Us Weekly that she and Wyatt were in a four-month relationship when he left to film for the show. She also claimed that they had agreed to be together when he returned home.
“As a fellow musician and as somebody that just loves this person, I’m like, ‘why would I hold him back from this opportunity?'” she said to the news outlet. “I know the premise of the show. Even though that’s not an ideal situation for our current relationship, when you’re not in it, it seems like a movie. It seems like it’s just a TV show,” she continued to say. “You don’t necessarily think about the fact that hearts are going to get involved, there are going to be feelings involved.”
The news came after Brown who fell for Wyatt early on in her journey as the Bachelorette. However, the singer-songwriter admitted that he initially joined the reality series because it would be “a huge platform” for his budding music career.
“I came in with that mindset,” he said to Brown on a one-on-one date. “[But] I’m starting to feel like I’m falling for you more and more. It’s beyond a show at this point.”
After the episode aired, he explained himself on Instagram.
“Hannah said she wanted us to be open and honest and I didn’t want to go another day without her knowing the truth,” Wyatt said. “I knew some people would take it the wrong way but what mattered to me was being honest so we could focus on our relationship.”
After Stevens’ comments about the situation, Wyatt took to Instagram again to beg viewers “to remember what seems like a harmless action is damaging to real people.” This comes after he allegedly said that his family was receiving “threatening letters and phone calls” in response to the headlines about Stevens.
Brown talked about the drama in the finale after he argued that he “was dating around, and it never felt like a relationship to [him]. She also explained that she heard conflicting stories.
The Bachelorette also explained that she heard conflicting stores and called Wyatt “selfish.” She broke off their short romance over the phone and reunited with the runner-up, Tyler Cameron later in the episode.
