Peter Weber is finally speaking out on his ex-girlfriend’s betrayal allegations!
Calee Lutes accused him of signing up for the show while they were still dating.
“We were very serious. 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. He wanted me to move out to L.A. to be with him, and he wanted us to get an apartment together.”
“We still kept in touch after the breakup, and we were trying to see each other again, up until early March, shortly before he left for filming,” Calee told ET Online about her break up with Peter. “When I found out about the show, I texted him and told him that he owed me an explanation, but I never heard a word back.”
“He absolutely betrayed me. He interviewed for a reality dating show while simultaneously planning a future with me.”
“I was shocked and I immediately knew that the show was the reason he broke up with me. Everything that made zero sense before, now made complete sense.”
In an interview with People, Peter talked about his previous relationship with Calee and the actual reason for their break up.
“There was a lot of truth to what she said in her story, but there is also a lot of truth that wasn’t mentioned,” Peter tells PEOPLE. “The show had absolutely nothing to do with me ending that relationship.”
“I was very serious in trying to progress that relationship and move it forward,” he continued. “And she wasn’t on the same page as me. That being said, I wasn’t going to waste her time or my time. But the casting process and my first interview was months after we broke up.”
Even though the break up happened three months before he left to film The Bachelorette, Peter says he still feels bad for hurting Calee.
“It’s obvious that I hurt someone that I really did care about,” he adds. “That was never my intention. And for that I’m sorry. Breakups suck!”
