Peter Weber is finally talking about his break up with Madison Prewett which lasted 6 hours.
A few days after the Bachelor live finale, both Peter and Madison announced their break up via Instagram.
Talking to former Bachelor Nick Viall onan episode of The Viall Files podcast, Peter opened up about the split.
“That was tough, we left the stage together, we were supposed to do some press,” Peter told Nick “We just couldn’t do it, we just weren’t in the right head space. She went to her hotel to talk to her family for a bit, then she came over to my hotel….That was mainly just [us] trying to be there for each other.”
“The second day was when we pretty much spent the entire day together, that was..okay, let’s figure this out. I remember going to her hotel. It was super sad. For probably six hours, we stayed on her bed there, we laughed, we cried, we hugged each other. It was rough.”
And then they announced their break up in seperate statements on Instagram.
“Believe me, this was not easy for either of us to be okay with, but after a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us.”
He even went on to defend his relationship with Madi.
“Right now, from the horse’s mouth, none of that was fake. None of that was staged, put on by the show, making it seem like I was into Madi.”
Peter then revealed the real reason for their break up.
“A lot of people think it was all about sex,” Peter says. “To be honest, that wasn’t the biggest thing to me. It was other things. She was also saving herself for just being able to go travel with her significant other until marriage. Something I love to do — travel, explore new places, go to international destinations — we weren’t going to be able to do that and stay in the same hotel.”
A lot of Bachelor fans defended Peter Weber after this was revealed.
“It was shady as fuck for her to hold off that info especially since it’s such an important thing for her. It’s so clear after that that she only wanted to go far to get that influencer following,” a reddit fan commented.
“I think if she’d been upfront with how strict her beliefs were, this whole season would have gone differently,” a fan wrote.
“She held back so much information about herself during the process that I can’t blame him for wanting to try with her,” added another fan.
