Rachael Kirkconnell has reportedly been left feeling “manipulated” after Grace Amerling claimed to have been seeing Matt James.
According to US Weekly, an insider revealed that Kirkconnell was “very hurt” because she had been “talking about a future” with James.
The source also claimed that both women “dropped” James after finding out that he had been seeing them both.
“Rachael is very emotional right now because she was very hopeful that things were going to work out,” the source added, noting that it “doesn’t seem like they will be getting back together.”
However, a source close to James told the outlet that the latest Bachelor is “not looking for a romantic relationship with Rachael after he ended it with her” last month.
Although James gave his final rose to Kirkconnell in the final episode of “The Bachelor” season 25, the pair ultimately called it quits after Kirkconnell’s racially insensitive actions came to light.
