Yikes, is there trouble in paradise between Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell ALREADY?! The ‘Bachelor’ and his fiance look like the picture-perfect couple now that they’re out in public, but he’s reportedly been talking to his ex the WHOLE time. Does Lauren know about this?!
Lauren Bushnell, 26, has already had to deal with having Ben Higgins tell another girl he loves her on national television, but JoJo Fletcher might not be who the gorgeous blonde has to worry about. The Bachelor star is still super close with his college ex…and has been in contact with her throughout his entire relationship with Lauren, according to a new report. YIKES!
“Ben values his ex’s opinion on things,” Life and Style reports, referencing a girl he broke up with about three years ago. “After breaking up, they would catch up here and there, but they got closer in the past year. Even when Ben got engaged to Lauren, that didn’t stop them from talking.”
Lauren and Ben have had to spend most of the time since their engagement in November apart, so obviously, finding out that he’s talking to an ex would be devastating to her. “Lauren and Ben are already having trust issues,” the mag’s source claims. “Now that they’re finally able to spend time together, if he calls his ex, she’s going to freak out. It’s going to start a war.”
Still, we’re going to take this report with a grain of salt…because overall, things seem to be going great between Ben and Lauren. Obviously, viewers were concerned with how she would react to watching him tell JoJo, “I love you” on the show, but the flight attendant herself revealed that Ben laid the truth all out for her the day after they got engaged!
And with everything going so great, a wedding isn’t far off the horizon. On After the Final Rose, the couple said their nuptials are going to be sooner than we think. “I would love to do 2016, early 2017,” Ben added to E! News. “I don’t want to rush it to the point where it’s stressful, but I also don’t wnat to wait too long. OMG, we can’t wait!
Do you think Ben is talking to his ex behind Lauren’s back, HollywoodLifers?
