Things are not going well between Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell. Although the Celebrity couple cleared the bad air about their relationship by being spotted in New York City last week. The spotting was preceded by a very public breakup. The reason behind the break up was the questionable behaviour of Matt after his racially insensitive pictures started resurfacing.
After the spotting, fans were hopeful of the Bachelor couple’s reunion. Fans thought that the couple were trying to give their relationship another shot. A source close to the couple was quoted saying that the couple has no chances of a reunion. Another source hinted that the couple will be separately beginning the new chapter of their lives.
“Matt and Rachael are no longer speaking and Rachael is upset about the situation that happened,” the insider reveals. “She is devastated and feels played by Matt. Rachael trusted that they could have a future together and is heartbroken.”
“She has expressed how upset she is,” adds the source, “and thinks it’s best they no longer speak.”
At this time, the two have yet to publicly comment on their NYC meet-up.
A source close to Rachelle said that she had agreed to reconcile with Matt and get in touch with him.
A second source added that Matt is enjoying his single status and not looking for a relationship. He is focused on his work, per the second source, which includes his non-profit ABC Food Tours.
During The Bachelor finale in March, Matt opened up about Rachael’s controversial past and how everything unfolded in real-time while he was dating the Georgia native.
“You wanna believe that you know your person better than anybody else knows your person,” he said at the time, adding, “This controversy swirling around who Rachael is and events she might’ve attended, pictures that she liked and people that she’s associated with.”
“Before Rachael addressed anything or Chris Harrison spoke on anything, I’m trying to be there for her,” he shared, “and I dismissed them as rumours because that’s what they were to me. You hear things that are heartbreaking and you just pray they’re not true. And then, when you find out that they are…it just makes you question everything.”
He later added, “I wasn’t okay because it was in that moment and the conversation that I had—Rachael might not understand what it means to be Black in America.”
Rachael has since apologized for her past actions and expressed this was a learning experience for her.
“While I certainly wish things turned out differently, I also believe there is a reason for everything,” she wrote on Instagram at the time, “we may not be able to control situations thrown our way, but we can control how we deal with it, and I believe good can come out every circumstance.”
Although Rachael expected her and Matt to work things out, she noted, “I respect his decision completely.”
“of course I wish circumstances were different,” she continued, “but I still feel blessed for the time we did have together and the memories we made. I fell in love, and I truly believe he was the love of my life. He will always hold a piece of my heart. I’ll always be hopeful and believe what’s meant to be will be.”
