Former Bachelorette star Blake Horstmann was rumored to be dating fellow Bachelor Nation alum, Kristina Schulman, but he’s finally setting the record straight.
While appearing on Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti’s Almost Famous podcast, the 29-year-old revealed his relationship status.
“I can confirm I am single right now. I am single, we’ll just say that,” he said.
“But right now, no, we are not boyfriend-girlfriend. There’s an answer to the rumors, because I hear it a lot too.”
Though he’s technically still on the market, Blake did explain that he’s spent some quality time with Kristina recently.
“I mean, we talked, we chatted, we did hang out a couple of times,” he shared.
“She’s amazing, she’s great, and you know, we get along really well. But right now, you know, we are hanging out, but it’s nothing serious right now.”
Now that he’s been off the show for a few months, dating out in the real world has been a bit of a challenge for the Denver native.
“It’s a weird point in my life, in our life, and me and Ben have talked about this,” he said.
“You know, dating publicly now is pretty hard, you know? So that’s something that I just knew to be, obviously, and I’m having a hard time with.”
Fans started speculating about the nature of Kristina and Blake’s relationship after he revealed she’s his Bachelor Nation crush!
The pair was also spotted spending time together recently, but we guess they’ve just decided to be friends…for now.
Not to mention, Kristina opened up her Instagram up to fan questions a few weeks back and countless fans were asking her about Blake.
