Hannah Brown has had one of the most controversial set of suitors in The Bachelorette history, and as the season comes to a close, the drama just continues with her frontrunners.
After the ex-girlfriend of Jed Wyatt revealed that when he left for the show they were still in a relationship, the ex-girlfriend of Peter Weber is now speaking out about the betrayal she faced from him when he left to be on this season.
Calee Lutes, who was Peter W.’s last serious girlfriend revealed that the pair were very serious, and even talked about moving in together and the future including marriage and children. “It was great, we were crazy about each other. Even though we lived on opposite sides of the country, we saw each other often — every week/every other week. It was as easy as a long-distance relationship could be. We went on vacations together around the U.S. and we even went to Switzerland in November,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
“We were 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. 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.” We also talked about kids, down to the logistics of how we would fly them back and forth between L.A. and Atlanta to visit my family if we did settle down in California. We talked about all of this right up until he broke up with me,” she added.
Lutes explained that leading up to him leaving he acted completely normal and never once mentioned he had signed up for the show and had been cast, and she said she bought a ticket to be out in L.A. with him for New Year’s and they were planning a trip for March to Costa Rica.
“A few days later, (two days before Christmas), we FaceTimed and he said that we should end our relationship before it got even more serious. He didn’t really have a reason why. I was devastated and completely blindsided. To do this right before Christmas was cruel, it not only ruined my Christmas, but my family’s as well. I didn’t understand why it was so urgent to end things so suddenly. 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. He immediately deleted EVERY trace of me on Instagram. He deleted our pictures, which is expected, but he also untagged me from photos, deleted my comments from his page and went as far as unliking my photos/deleting his comments from my Instagram as well,” she explained.
She continued,”He absolutely betrayed me. He interviewed for a reality dating show while simultaneously planning a future with me. I trusted him entirely and he pulled the rug out from under me. Also, if all of this wasn’t bad enough, I’ve had multiple people reach out to me and tell me that he was seeing other women while we were exclusive.”
Lutes eventually found out that Peter had left her to be on The Bachelorette after her cousin sent her the list of contestants the day they wre announced. “He wasn’t upfront. He never said a word about the show even though he knows I watch it. He even pointed out the Bachelor mansion to me when we drove by it back in October. We still kept in touch after the breakup, and we were trying to see each other again, up until early March, shortly before he left for filming. When I found out about the show, I texted him and told him that he owed me an explanation, but I never heard a word back. That’s the most shocking part of all… I thought he would’ve at least had enough decency to apologize. If he showed me even the smallest amount of sympathy for what he did to me, I probably wouldn’t have spoken out.”
