After choosing Shawn Booth as the winner of her heart on the season finale, the pair got engaged, however split at the end of 2018 after three years together.
Kaitlyn is now dating another Bachelor alum, Jason Tartick, and the two look happier than ever after moving in together and adopting a couple of dogs.
Kaitlyn Made Comments On Instagram
However, the reality t.v. star made some comments while watching the new season of The Bachelor with Peter Weber that some fans took as her shading ex-fiance, Shawn Booth.
On Instagram, Kaitlyn wrote, “I always question watching every season due to a little PTSD, overwhelming emotions, and knowing a little too much. But I just always want to support the people going through this ‘journey.’”
Clearly, the new season has been triggering to Kaitlyn, who it seems didn't have the easiest time on the show.
She Has Bitter Feelings About Her Time On The Show
She continued, “So while I have bitter feelings towards one person out of hundreds, I will choose to love the hundreds of others who changed my life. I will try to remember the positive experiences.”
Her comments sent fans into meltdown, with most people assuming she was talking about Shawn Booth. The flames of drama had been fanned, despite the fact that she never named him in what she wrote.
Despite how happy she is with Jason Tartick, viewers can't help but love a little scandal in Bachelor Nation, so it's not surprising they latched on to this juicy new gossip.
She Clarified Her Comments Recently
However, the former Bachelorette has been quick to downplay the comments, and clarify her statement. She told Us Weekly at the iHeartRadio Podcast Awards, “Let’s be honest, everyone is going to immediately think, ‘Oh, she’s talking about her ex,’ but no. I could be petty, but not that petty."
She continued, “I would just say it if that’s who I was talking about. It’s someone who I would just rather not say the name anymore and just move forward because there are so many people I love in that franchise.”
She Was Not Referring To A Contestant
She also claimed the person she was referring to “not a contestant." Clearly, the next possible enemy she is referring to is The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss.
The reality star was incredibly angry at the fact that he wouldn't allow her to compete on Dancing With The Stars despite the fact that many men from the franchise already had.
She didn't hold back in her scathing comments, telling the Talkhouse podcast, “I’ll tell you exactly why I can’t go on Dancing With the Stars. Anybody that listens to this podcast knows why I cannot go on Dancing With the Stars. I will say this with a mic in my hand and a smile on my face, that Mike Fleiss is a piece of s–t! He is the creator of The Bachelor, and he hates women.”
Yikes! Tell us what you really think Kaitlyn!
