- Haley even said Jed spent the night with her before leaving, but ultimately ghosted her.
Hannah Brown, this season's Bachelorette, has already had so much drama with the guys (I'm looking at you Luke P., Tyler C., and Peter). But, y'all, one of the fan favorites (and pick for the winner, per Reality Steve) Jed Wyatt, just had MAJOR tea spilled.
In an exclusive interview with People, Jed's ex-girlfriend, Nashville-based musician Haley Stevens (who he 100 percent still follows on Instagram), said Jed was allegedly in a relationship with her when he went on the show-and she's not leaving any details out.
“We spent the night together the night before he headed to L.A. He told me [the show] was just an obstacle and we’d be stronger on the other side because of it,” she told People. And according to her, he had applied way before they got serious, and that he was doing it simply to expand his career.
“He said, ‘It’s probably not going to happen, but it’s a huge opportunity. I’m only doing this for my music.’ He only did it for his career,” she said. “He was always so reassuring,” she says. “He told me, it’s not real. It’s acting.”
Haley also said the last time she heard from Jed was when he left to film the show in February 2019. "He called me when he landed in L.A.," she said. “He said, ‘I love you, and I’ll call you when I get back.’” But apparently, she NEVER heard from him again.
"I was following along on spoiler accounts, trying to figure out when my boyfriend was going to come home," she said, adding that she was "terrified" he'd end up falling in love with Hannah. "In the beginning I felt bad [watching the show] because I thought he loved me and was faking dating her. But then I thought, my boyfriend could be engaged to someone else. Seeing him kissing her for the first time was the worst day."
At that point, she knew it was over. But according to her, even after the show was over and he was back in Nashville, he never got in touch with her. She confronted him when she ran into him at a music venue earlier this month.
“He said, ‘Hey how have you been?’ and I said, ‘How do you think I’ve been?’” she recalls. “I asked him, ‘You didn’t think I deserved a phone call?’ And he said, ‘I didn’t know what to say.’” Yikes.
Now, Haley said she's moving on, but is still pretty upset (understandably). "I thought it probably wasn’t going to work out," she said. "But the hardest part is that he ghosted me. He loved me, but he didn’t have enough respect for me to have that tough conversation.”
Now the big question: How will this unfold during the rest of the season (if it comes up at all)?
