Just days after it was announced Ali Oetjen will be Australia's new Bachelorette, the blonde bombshell is being accused of cheating on her Bachelor In Paradise beau Grant Kemp!
"Grant told me that after the show he flew Ali to Los Angeles so they could try to make a go of it, but she allegedly cheated on him with his housemate," a close friend of the American Bachelor star reveals, despite previous reports Ali had broken up with the model because he propositioned her for a threesome.
Listen to the latest podcast of Woman's Day Uncensored where the team dissect everything from how Meghan Markle and her dad are both shredding for her impending royal wedding to Prince Harry, to Bachelor in Paradise's Keira and Jarrod revealing their future wedding plans.
"He said Ali only dated him for fame, because he has a bigger profile [in the US]. I didn't think it made any sense at the time but I guess now she's going to become the Bachelorette, it makes sense she wanted to stay on the show."
According to the friend, despite Ali, 31, grovelling to Grant for forgiveness, the 29-year-old dumped her as soon as he found out, telling everyone he puts "d--ks before chicks" and that he's still close friends with Misha, the mate who did the dirty on him.
Meanwhile, Ali and Grant's Bachelor In Paradise co-stars appear to be less than impressed by the shock rumours.
In messages posted on the contestants' group chat page, Florence said she was "speechless".
Meanwhile Lisa – who broke up with Luke after he cheated on her after Paradise – sniped, "Ali and Luke should hook up and cheat on each other."
It's safe to say Ali hasn't had the best reaction ahead of her debut as the Bachelorette.
Last week she gave awkward and stilted radio interviews on both the Kyle & Jackie O Show and Fifi, Fev & Byron on 101.9 Fox FM, while fans of the popular franchise predicted she'll be "the most boring Bachelorette on TV".
Adds the disgruntled viewer, "I'll need several bottles of wine to make her remotely interesting to watch."
