Opportunistic Bachelorette contestant Jed and his best friend, a guitar, might not be the only ones getting booed when the “After the Final Rose” episode airs later this month. Following weeks of rumblings that fellow suitor Peter allegedly dumped his serious girlfriend to compete for Hannah Brown’s heart this season, the ex in question is now dropping bombshell intel in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Calee Lutes, a model based in Atlanta, detailed the extent of her relationship with Peter, which lasted for about five months before he unexpectedly broke up with her days after he suggested they move in together. Lutes claims the duo were looking forward to settling down in California prior to the split, and that she had met his family many times.

“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,” Lutes explained. “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.” Lutes also says she tried to get in contact with Peter multiple times upon discovering he competed on the show, but he completely ghosted her. “He definitely didn’t go on the show for the right reasons,” she added. “I believe he went on it for the chance at fame, and he got what he wanted.” Peter, a Delta pilot who’s enjoyed (many) horny sauna dalliances with Brown this season, is one of the four men who advanced to the “fantasy suites” episode, which will air tonight.
