Drama in Bachelor Nation. Current Bachelorette contestant Peter Weber‘s alleged ex-girlfriend, Calee Lutes, has come forward to expose shady behavior the pilot exhibited during their supposed relationship. The model alleges she was blindsided when he dumped her to go on the famed reality show, and she didn’t know why things ended until she saw the this season’s cast list. Calee said that they dated for five months before he left to meet Hannah Brown, and she feels certain that she’s the ex he refers to on the show.
The model claims they met through a dating app in June 2018. “I live in Atlanta, and he lives in L.A. He had just been hired by Delta, so he was in Atlanta for a month for training. We hit it off and decided to continue dating long distance after his month was up,” she told Entertainment Tonight in an interview published on Monday, July 15. Although their relationship wasn’t long, Calee claimed that they went on multiple trips together, met each other’s families and discussed moving in together. “He told me he loved me for the first time in October, and we talked almost every time we saw each other about how we were going to make it last long term,” she said.
Then, things came to an abrupt halt, according to Calee. “The whole month of December, everything was normal … We talked yet again about the future, and he asked me if I could see myself living in Santa Barbara with him,” she began her story. “He flew to Atlanta a week later to spend the weekend with me, and again, everything was perfectly normal. We said our goodbyes, and that was the last time we saw each other.”
She dished that he ended things over the phone. “A few days later (two days before Christmas), we FaceTimed and he said that we should end our relationship before it got even more serious. He didn’t really have a reason why. I was devastated and completely blindsided,” Calee confessed. The model also claimed that the pilot “deleted every trace” of her from his Instagram account. “He absolutely betrayed me. He interviewed for a reality dating show while simultaneously planning a future with me. I trusted him entirely and he pulled the rug out from under me.”
Calee claimed that watching this season of The Bachelorette felt like a very bad déjà vu. “He acted very similar with Hannah as he did with me, and he has said a lot of the same things,” she said. “He made me think that what we had was super rare and something he hadn’t felt before as well. Watching this has been dumbfounding. He’s definitely a charmer and a smooth talker.” Calee roasted her ex when she said, “He definitely didn’t go on the show for the right reasons. I believe he went on it for the chance at fame, and he got what he wanted.”
If he doesn’t get engaged to Hannah during the finale, Peter’s odds to become the next lead on The Bachelor are pretty high since he’s a fan favorite. “I know he’s not ready to settle down, so I think it would be a huge mistake if he were to be the Bachelor,” Calee said. “I hope they choose someone who is truly there for the right reasons. I would hate to see him hurt more people.”
Peter has not responded to Calee’s claims yet. Contestant Jed Wyatt has also come under fire after his alleged ex Haley Stevens claimed that they were dating while he was on the show. We have a feeling that all these things will be addressed by the show and Hannah in the next few weeks.
