The ongoing feud between Raven Gates and former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay is coming in hot with a new update.
Raven Gates talked about her upcoming wedding with ET, where she was asked if she’s going to extend a wedding invitation to Rachel Lindsay as an olive branch.
“No! Because she doesn’t like me,” Raven starts.
“I don’t want people at my wedding that don’t like me,” she adds with a laugh. “That’s all I know.”
“I feel like I’ve done everything I know to do. I’m so confused about it all. I’ve lost sleep over it!” she continued. “I don’t know [what ended our friendship] and I don’t think I ever will know. That’s fine with me, but I’m never going to hate on her and I’m not going give that reaction.”
Raven also revealed that she tried to reach out to Rachel after she spoke about their feud on t.v.
“Everyone is going to think I’m totally bullcrapping this, but this is the truth. I don’t know exactly,” she said. “Last time I reached out to her after this crazy storm of social media crap came my way after some things she said, I tried to reach out to her to either squash it or figure out what the problem was to fix it and she didn’t want to talk to me.”
“I’ve supported her from the beginning, I support her now, we’re just closing the chapter.”
Raven also said she’s “not going to say anything bad about her because that’s not in my heart or my spirit.”
Is there any chance of a reconciliation between the two?
“I would never say never. I’ve loved her. I’ve had a very, very deep love for her. But it’s just gotten so nasty and ugly,” she explains. “We would have to have a conversation, and we’re not even having that. So it’s just like — it’s fine, I’m OK with it.”
“I’ve mourned the loss of her friendship. I’m over that now. But I will not argue with her in the media, and I will not talk bad about her.”
“I know everyone’s probably like, ‘Oh, she did something. And Rachel said she knows what she did.’ I don’t know what I did! People are going to not like me regardless,” she adds. “I know who I am. Adam knows who I am. My family and my friends know who I am, so at the end of the day, it’s fine. I don’t know what else to say.”
Raven and Rachel became best friends during their time on Nick Viall’s season of the Bachelor.
