Peter Weber’s ex girlfriend accused him of breaking up with her just to go on The Bachelorette.
Chris Harrison told ET Online that he “did some digging” into the drama between Peter and his ex-girlfriend, Calee.
“Peter is going to have a little explaining to do. I know more about Peter, just because I did some digging. Because some allegations were made in her claims that had to do with us and casting, so I was just curious so I asked around,” Chris tells Lauren Zima.
“In that regard, I’m less worried and less intrigued about Peter’s situation. Because I know some truths that either I’ll explain or Peter will explain.”
“Peter’s ex… has her version… it might be her truth, because that’s her perspective of being broken up with is you’re hurt and you didn’t see this coming. Maybe he did,” he continued. “I just want to give Peter a chance to talk, because I know some things… and maybe she didn’t know. That’s the thing too, and if she doesn’t know the truth about it, it may have looked crazy to her, or may have seemed crazy.”
“But I know it’s kind of more funny than anything, about him and how he was approached by the show, how he was cast on the show, the timing of it all. So I have facts on that that I’m not worried about at all for Peter.
“I’m not too worried about Peter. I will just say there’s less of a gray area for me here, as far as Peter is concerned. Jed, I just don’t know the situation as well.”
Calee told ET about her relationship with Peter and why they broke up.
“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 told Entertainment Tonight.
“He wanted me to move out to L.A. to be with him, and he wanted us to get an apartment together. I was open to moving out there for a year or so, to give our relationship a fair chance, but he told me he didn’t want me out there temporarily… he wanted me out there ‘forever.'”
“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,” she said. “Also, if all of this wasn’t bad enough, I’ve had multiple people reach out to me and tell me that he was seeing other women while we were exclusive.”
