He may have broken Ali Fedotowsky's heart with his alleged lies, but The Bachelorette's Justin "Rated-R" Rego says he was the one scarred by his experience on the ABC reality show.
“The producers of The Bachelorette took this experience that was supposed to be an amazing moment that I will never forget, and made it into a living hell for me,” Rego says in a new statement posted on his Facebook page.
The aspiring wrestler was sent packing on Monday's Istanbul episode, but not before Fedetowsky let him have it for being a liar. You see, Rego's supposed girlfriend, Jessica Spillas, had called the Bachelorette star to let her know that Rego was there solely to promote his career, and had been in contact with Spillas repeatedly while also attempting to woo Ali. This, of course, came after Spillas found out that Rego had yet another woman waiting in the wings.
Rego -- who says he told producers prior to traveling to Turkey that he “wanted off the show” and “wanted to get on the first plane home” -- tried to leave without having a conversation with Fedetowsky, but was reportedly followed by cameras until he spoke to her one last time.
“I feel betrayed, manipulated and unfairly lied to by both the producers of ABC’s The Bachelorette, and Jessica,” he says.
He says the producers manipulated him only to “provoke and encourage this scandal to be something it wasn’t.”
“I no longer have any contact with Jessica, nor do I want her in my life in any way,” he says. “I was not in a relationship before I went on the show and I am still single now.”
