Tyler Cameron Finally Explains His Drama with Matt’s Girlfriend Rachael Kirkconnell

Tyler Cameron is finally giving answers about his clash with Rachel Kirkconnell and an update on the status of his friendship with Matt James. 

“I think people think [Matt and I aren’t friends] because we’re just not in each other’s everyday lives like we used to be,” he told Us Weekly. “I think it’s part of growing up. It’s part of entering a relationship.”

“We all have those friends that they grow up, they start dating their person, they get married, they do their thing and you see him when you see him,” he said about their friendship.

The former Bachelorette runner-up also talked about his love-hate” relationship with his bestfriend’s girlfriend Rachel Kirkconnell.

“Rachael’s great and she makes Matt happy and they’re happy,” Tyler explained. “And it’s fun to see, you know, them do their thing and they always are traveling and doing stuff. [Do] we have a love-hate relationship? I think it’s just we have two strong opinions and [the] way we see things and we sometimes clash. But at the end of the day, we’re all cool. You know, it is what it is.”

“I was definitely going through my own shit. We just have our own ways of clashing. I don’t like listening to people sometimes. And she’s strong and she has a really good opinion on a lot of things. And sometimes I don’t want to hear it.”

He went on to add that Rachael “always means well” and called her a “really good person.”

“We’ve also learned from each other,” he continued. “So that’s good.”
