‘The Bachelor‘ did not have the happiest of endings. Not only did Peter break it off with fiance Hannah Ann Sluss, he and Madison Prewett broke up just two days after announcing they were dating again on the ‘Bachelor’ finale. Many fans have their own theories on why Peter had such a difficult time finding love. One popular fan theory is that he was hooking up with ‘The Bachelor’ producer Julie LaPlaca after seeing Instagram pictures of the two of them.
Julie addressed the rumor firsthand. She explained that she and Peter are friends but nothing more as reported by HollywoodLife. She addressed one particular picture at New Year’s Eve that left fans wondering if the two shared a midnight kiss.
“Yes that was @pilot_pete in the tan jacket,” Julie wrote in an Instagram post reposting the picture. “No we didn’t kiss at midnight. But whoever ends up as his copilot for life is one lucky lady, because this guy has a heart of gold ❤️✈️ ”
Another popular fan theory was that Kelley Flanagan and Peter were together which is why she didn’t show up at the reunion.
“I heard that I’m pregnant and I also heard that I’m with Peter right now,” Flanagan told E! News, “I’m not with Peter. I promise I’m not dating Peter. I’m not dating Peter.”
As far as the reuinon goes, “I didn’t skip it,” she confirmed. “I actually wasn’t invited to Women Tell All. I don’t know why and everyone keeps asking that. I honestly don’t know why I wasn’t invited. Your guess is as good as mine!”
With all of Peter’s mysterious affair rumors debunked, it looks like Peter truly is single after he and Madison announced their breakup.
“Madi and I have mutually decided to not pursue our relationship any further,” Peter wrote on Instagram. “Believe me this was not easy for either of us to be ok with, but after a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us. The love and respect I have for Madi will continue to endure.”
“As Peter and I have decided to go our separate ways, I am confident that we will both move in the direction of our purpose and never forget that God has a plan in all things,” Madison wrote on Instagram. “I will always love and respect him. I am convinced our paths were meant to cross and we are both better because they did. @pilot_pete you are an amazing guy and I’m thankful for you. I will always be your biggest fan.”
