The Bachelor‘s Ben Flajnik made headlines prior the show’s season finale, when rumors started that he allegedly cheated on Courtney Robertson. For the first time since the rumors started, Courtney Robertson is speaking out about the photos. What did she have to say about Ben’s supposed “cheating” scandal? Read on to find out!
The Bachelor‘s Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson have been down a tough road lately, with many rumors flying about Ben possibly cheating on Courtney. With sites such as US Weekly and Life & Style revealing photos of Ben Flajnik with other women, Courtney Robertson decided to speak out and defend her man! In fact, Courtney revealed that while she was not thrilled about the photos, she does believe that Ben did not cheat on her, and she added: “He became a target. The tabloids hired people to follow him everywhere, just waiting for the chance to snap a photo of anything they could to make it look like he was doing something shady. I think you can take a photo and make it look like anything if you really want to.”
Courtney Robertson, who spoke to Wetpaint about the photos, went on to explain that she played the tabloid game smarter than her fiance did: “Here’s the thing: I have a lot of platonic guy friends and Ben knows that, but I was very careful after the show wrapped not to get too close to them in public or put myself in a situation where a photo could be taken and something could be misconstrued.” Courtney reiterated that she trusts Ben Flajnik, and if she did not, she would not be with him.
