The Bachelorette may be over but the drama hasn’t stopped. Earlier today, Brooke Blurton put up an Instagram story addressing rumours of the tension with Bachy alum Abbie Chatfield, saying she was hurt by the actions of Abbie who went public with Konrad Bien-Stephens in the finale week of The Bachelorette.

After saying Abbie’s actions had “literally pained” her, Brooke went on to say she had reached out to Abbie about the conflict.

“I’m not a hostile person and literally do not have any hate in my heart. Everyone who watched the show, or was on the show cast and/or working as crew, will know that I put my heart and soul into it and it meant a lot for me to open myself up so vulnerably like that.

“Not only that but for what it meant for the LGBTQIA+ and First Nations Community to have that display of representation. Which moves on to my new point. The hardest point. For that to be tainted ONCE again by 1. What I thought was a close friend. 2. Another white woman displaying what white privilege looks like. 3. A very clear display of narcissism,” Brooke said in her story.

Abbie Chatfield has now addressed Brooke’s stories in her own Instagram post.

“A month ago, a video of Konrad and I kissing was secretly captured by a patron and made public. Following this, Brooke and I had a conversation in which I apologised and expressed regret multiple times for our public affection as this was prior to Konrad’s exit from the show. Konrad had a similar conversation with Brooke,” Abbie said.

When it came to addressing her decision to go public with Konrad on the first day of the Bachelorette finale week, Abbie said this:

“The morning of, I mistook a message from Brooke expressing her happiness for and approval of our relationship as a green light to upload a post. Following the post, Konrad received an equally supportive message. I see with hindsight that this assumption was naïve.”

Abbie then went on to apologise for her part in the drama.

“My actions had the potential to undermine the importance that this pivotal season of The Bachelorette holds to the First Nations and LGBTQIA+ Communities. This is an extremely important conversation to be having.

I’m sorry.”

While most fans of Abbie applauded her apology, former Bachy contestant Alisha Aitken-Radburn left a rather interesting comment on Abbie’s post.

Abbie had previously addressed the controversy surrounding her relationship with Konrad in a Q&A on Instagram, after someone wrote in calling it a PR stunt.

“I desperately needed the PR at the height of my career and as we know I LOVE talking about people I’m dating and uploading photos of them,” she said at the time. “Not like this was a huge decision to be public that went against PR advice.”

Phew, what a day you guys.
