Pilot Pete’s ex-girlfriend has spoken out about the fan-favorite season 15 Bachelorette contestant. Well, then. Another one bites the dust.
Bachelorette season 15 is a neverending rollercoaster of drama, and that’s an understatement if there ever was one. Like, seriously, what else can go wrong at this point!? What exactly am I blabbing about now? Well, according to an exclusive Entertainment Tonight interview, there’s a bit something viewers don’t know about Pilot Pete Weber–he too scorned a lover before coming onto the show.
It’s so difficult to think about Pilot Pete’s happy-go-lucky, smiling face and then think of this. Why, oh, why! Calee Lutes, Weber’s ex-girlfriend, has followed in the footsteps of Jedd Wyatt’s ex and come out saying that before heading off to be on the Bachelorette, Pilot Pete broke up with her very suddenly.
In the Latvia episode, Pilot Pete does make mention of an ex, whom we hear about again later during his hometown date. All we heard was that it was a serious relationship that ended in heartbreak, but it turns out, there may be more to the story.
According to Lutes, the couple was dating for about five months until he broke up with her in December, and after hearing what he had to say about his past relationship, she believes he’s referring to her. However, she doesn’t exactly remember things ending in the way he describes.
In her email interview with ET, Lutes describes the relationship in detail stating they were very serious and in love, and had even traveled to Switzerland together. It was a long-distance relationship but they had discussed everything down to the nitty-gritty details of having a family together and how it would work.
And then suddenly one day before Christmas 2018, Pilot Pete broke it off, without any warning.
"A few days later, (two days before Christmas), we FaceTimed and he said that we should end our relationship before it got even more serious. He didn’t really have a reason why. I was devastated and completely blindsided. To do this right before Christmas was cruel, it not only ruined my Christmas, but my family’s as well. I didn’t understand why it was so urgent to end things so suddenly. I thought there was another girl, so I looked at his recent followers on Instagram, and noticed that a Bachelorette producer had recently followed him. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but I knew there was something he wasn’t telling me. He immediately deleted EVERY trace of me on Instagram. He deleted our pictures, which is expected, but he also untagged me from photos, deleted my comments from his page and went as far as unliking my photos/deleting his comments from my Instagram as well."
There’s a lot more that was said when it comes to this interview, but we will let you read it for yourself in the ET article here.
Man, I don’t know what to think about this except these shows need to do a better job vetting. I’m not sure how that’s possible or if it is, but dang, this just royally sucks! Like I said before, another one bites the dust.
Let’s see how the Fantasy Suite dates go tonight, but let’s just say, Pilot Pete has changed in my eyes just as Jed has. What a shame.
