Matt James would possibly’ve walked away from Rachael Kirkconnell on nationwide TV after the racism dust-up … however he appears to have circled again along with her in the true world for one more go.
The previous ‘Bachelor’ was seen hanging out together with his ex Saturday within the Metropolis of Angels — grabbing brew at a bar referred to as JuneShine in Santa Monica, with some buddies in tow. Matt was making an attempt to be all incognito for the outing, but it surely’s fairly apparent to us that is him and her.
His bottom-half apparel just about offers it away … so does the skateboard. The man’s typically seen shredding and carrying short-shorts … particularly these inexperienced/blue ones. He even appears to have ran a marathon in NYC with them again in 2019, as you see right here.
As for Rachael … nicely, she’s all about that sunglasses-resting-on-the-head look, and this gal who’s with Matt in these photographs certain bears a hanging resemblance to RK from the facet. Pair that with rumors they’ve reunited in latest weeks … and there ya go.
There did not seem like any PDA between the 2 for Saturday’s get-together … however they had been undoubtedly leaving collectively. We acquired a shot of them strolling away from the bar, and it is clear they had been heading in the identical path, and probably to the identical subsequent vacation spot.
So … what does this all imply??? Appears Matt has forgiven Rachael and/or gotten over the controversy … perhaps each. If that is the case, it definitely seems to be a full 180 from how he mentioned he felt when he broke it off along with her throughout the ‘After the Final Rose‘ ceremony, when he defined why they could not be collectively.
All of it goes again to social media posts and previous photographs of Rachael — which many thought of racist. She posed for pics with sorority sisters of hers at an antebellum-themed get together — which has racist roots within the South — and liked racially insensitive pics on IG that featured the Accomplice flag and white women wearing ponchos and sombreros.
There’s additionally a declare that Rachael used to make enjoyable of a white classmate for relationship a Black man again in highschool. She copped to some, however not all, of the resurfaced habits … and apologized numerous times, whereas additionally telling folks they should not defend her actions.
We reached out to Matt’s rep … to this point, no phrase again.
Rachael professed her love to Matt even after they break up — and primarily based on this … it appears like he is giving her one other probability. To every their very own, we suppose. 🤷🏽♂️
