On tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette, the guys hear that JoJo Fletcher’s ex-boyfriend Chad Rookstool is “spreading rumors” about their relationship as well as how JoJo truly felt about Ben Higgins. When JoJo hears the news, she is broken-hearted. Check out her tearful reaction in the above video.
JoJo described her relationship with Chad as being a roller-coaster with very low lows and very high highs. So what did Chad Rookstool tell In Touch Weekly about JoJo? He basically said that when she finished filming The Bachelor, she came home to him and talked marriage, their future, etc. He said they even snuck around while the show was airing so that viewers wouldn’t find out she didn’t end up with star Ben Higgins. Rookstool revealed:
As soon as she got home, we started hanging out every day and being intimate again. We were sneaking around the whole time The Bachelor was airing because she wasn’t allowed to be seen with me.
Rookstool is the same ex who sent JoJo flowers and a love note pleading to win her back while she was filming The Bachelor.
Rookstool said that JoJo also talked to him about the possibility of her being The Bachelorette. He claims:
JoJo said, ‘I don’t know if I’m the next Bachelorette, but let’s just have a conversation as if I am.’ She tried to tell me she wasn’t saying goodbye forever — but I told her that I’m not going to sit around and wait for her [this time], and that was it … JoJo thought the show would help branch out her career. She said it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
He then added:
JoJo told me, ‘Chad, come on, you know it was TV.’ I think she just got sucked up in the show rather than actually trying to have legit feelings.
JoJo Fletcher was devastated upon reading the article Chad Rookstool did with In Touch. She cried to the men on The Bachelorette, apologizing and saying that she doesn’t want them to think she is being fake.
