Former Bachelor star Caitlin Clemmens is standing up for herself after Chad Johnson accused her of cheating on him.
The Bachelor in Paradise star and Clemmens reportedly had been dating for a few months when she supposedly cheated, but the 31-year-old says that’s not the case.
Johnson first claimed she cheated on him while appearing on The Tomorrow Show With Keven Undergaro on Wednesday, March 6.
“I stood up, grabbed my drink, walked out. … Just kind of was like, ‘Alright, what’s next?’ … She made it blatantly clear that she was trying to hide it,” he said.
“It wasn’t like she was just trying to not talk about it or something. She wanted to suppress it.”
He continued, “We went to a club, basically. She’s there with another guy or whatever. Basically, I end up seeing her do some s—t and makes out with another guy right in front of my face. Basically, I end up leaving again.”
However, Clemmens responded with a statement to Us Weekly and revealed they were never dating.
“I tried to remain very respectful while shutting down dating allegations by simply stating that we were not dating and I had no plans to date him. It seems as though that respect is not reciprocated,” she shared.
“In no way did our shared time constitute a committed relationship and that is why I attempted to respectfully shut down those rumors.”
She continued, “I had no intentions of hiding our shared time from the public, but also felt as though this was my private life and it was not necessary to share.”
Johnson then responded with his own statement and said that though he agrees they weren’t officially dating, they were more than friends.
“We weren’t boyfriend and girlfriend as a lot of media is making out to seem. We were talking for over two months straight … I know she wishes me well, and so [I] wish her well, too,” he said.
