Okay, so it took a while to get here, but it’s happening: The Bachelor stars Peter Weber and Madison Prewett are fighting online.
It all started on April 21, when Prewett gave an interview about her breakup with Weber, and also the Kelley Flanagan drama, via Kaitlyn Bristowe’s Off the Vine podcast. Prewett specifically alleged that Weber had asked her to get back together just two days before he was photographed with Flanagan.
“He was, like, calling me and texting me being like, ‘I miss you, let’s get back together,’” Prewett said, according to Us Weekly. “I mean, I think that to me was a little confusing, but I think, like, when you break up and you’re going through a heartbreak and you just came off a show that was emotionally, physically and [every] which way exhausting, everybody handles that differently. Everybody leans on different things.”
Prewett also said she was “thrown off” by Flanagan’s coupling up with Weber because the two women were apparently close during filming. “We were best friends, actually. We were inseparable throughout the entire process,” she said. “I was definitely hurt and thrown off by that whole situation. I want the best for the both of them, but I definitely was thrown off.”
Shortly after this, Weber took to the Instagram account @Bachelornation.Scoop to air his grievances with Prewett. “You’d think you’d have a little more respect for this situation given we both know there’s more to the story,” he wrote, tagging his ex.
So what is the truth? @Bachelormation.Scoop decided to pose the question to its over 92,000 followers. Who is being honest here: Weber or Prewett?
Let’s just say the comments, so far, are overwhelmingly Team Madi. “Team Madi all the way,” one user wrote. “She said the same things he said in his previous podcasts except he had conveniently left out some details that made him look bad.”
Another fan wrote, “In my humble opinion, I don’t think Peter is ready for a serious relationship. Nice guy, not ready for a commitment. Peter likes being free to fly.”
A third fan noted that we all have a Weber in our dating history. “Pilot Pete just doesn’t like to be alone,” they said. “Haven’t we all had one of those in our lives before? Won’t commit, but will try to get attention any way possible when nobody is paying attention to him. Hence texting Madi wanting her to site on him, then turning around and going for Kelley because she’s there.”
Though most of the comments I encountered, both on Twitter and this Bachelor account, are in Prewett’s favor, there are some Pro Pilot Pete stans around. “Never liked Madi,” one user wrote, simply. Ouch.
Then, of course, some just want the whole thing to be over. “Lol they’re both children I can’t even be bothered,” one fan admitted. “Still wishing that [Mike Johnson] was the Bachelor.” Now that’s something I would still like to see!
