The Bachelor Ben Flajik delivered a final rose and one helluva an engagement ring on Monday night’s season finale. Courtney Robertson edged out competition from runner-up Lindzi Cox to win the coveted proposal from Flajik.
But reality set in for the future newlyweds very quickly. The Bachelor couple struggled to remain intact as whispers about Courtney’s personality surfaced and tabloid rumors calling Ben’s fidelity into question hit the glossies.
On After the Final Rose, Ben broke the news that the twosome had split “for a period of time while this show aired.” The reality star said he needed to “reassess” the relationship. In response to the cheating allegations, Ben was downright defiant.
“On my father’s grave, I haven’t kissed another woman, hooked up with another woman, or cheated on Courtney,” he scoffed.
Flajik called the goss “tabloid fodder,” insisting that he was “not kissing anybody” in the photos.
