Could Chad actually be dating Robby’s ex-girlfriend? ‘The Bachelorette’ bad boy came clean about the Instagram post that had everyone talking on the June 20 episode of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’ Watch!
Let’s rewind a minute. Chad Johnson posted a three-photo collage on June 20 of himself kissing Hope Higginbotham, the longtime girlfriend of Robby Hayes, and the girl he allegedly broke up with to go on The Bachelorette. So naturally, Jimmy Kimmel straight up asked him what the deal was and if it was real or if they were just doing it to mess with people.
“We were traveling and we just happened to see each other… and things kind of went from there. It started off as we were just kinda friends and making jokes about it,” she said. “I don’t want to make any judgements or say where it’s going to go! I don’t know.”
Well, that’s interesting that they “just happened to see each other,” since the pics look like they’ve known each other for a long time. The caption was pretty mushy too. However, they’re not together, that’s for sure.
“I am still single, I am still looking for love,” he said when Jimmy asked. However, maybe he just has to say that since he’s about to be on Bachelor in Paradise.
“While traveling this weekend, our paths crossed and I finally had the opportunity to meet Hope Higginbotham in person. Let me just say, she is even more beautiful in person,” Chad wrote on Instagram. “A great girl like her deserves so much better than someone who lies, cheats, and ends a four year long relationship in order to pursue fame on a tv show. You’re amazing, I miss you already 😍 @hopealverta .”
That sounds very friendly if you ask me! HollywoodLifers, do you think Chad and Robby’s ex are really dating? Do you think it’s all for show? Let us know!
