One of the front-runners on The Bachelorette this season is contestant Robby Hayes and Hollywood Life reports that Johnson has been hanging out with one of Hayes’ exes. Hope Higginbotham and Johnson now appear to be an item, with Johnson posting this message on Instagram:
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. 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.
