While Bachelor nation is still watching Matt’s journey to find love unfold, Matt took to Instagram recently to address the controversy and make an official statement.
“The past few weeks have been some of the most challenging of my life, and while there are several episodes left of the season, it is important that I take the time to address the troubling information that has come to light since we wrapped filming, including the incredibly disappointing photos of Rachael Kirkconnell and the interview between Rachel Lindsay and Chris Harrison,” the reality star began.
He continued, “The reality is that I’m learning about these situations in real time, and it has been devastating and heartbreaking to put it bluntly.”
