Jed Wyatt's 'The Bachelorette' sketchiness allegedly included "plenty more" unreported allegations
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 07/31/2019
Jed Wyatt's sketchiness was allegedly even worse than what has previously been reported.
As Part 2 of The Bachelorette finale was airing on Tuesday night, People magazine's editorial director, Kate Coyne, was live tweeting all of her opinions about the aspiring country singer and The Bachelorette star Hannah Brown's decision to pick him at the season's Final Rose Ceremony.
And along the way, Kate had some choice words for Jed, alleging that People discovered a lot more dirt on Jed than the magazine reported in its June story that caused Hannah to call-off her engagement and break-up with Jed.
"Yep, here's @people playing a pivotal role in exposing Jed for the crap weasel he is. And folks, let me tell you: there was plenty more we COULD have reported. Plenty. @BacheloretteABC #TheBachelorette #weseeyou," Kate tweeted.
"Sit tight and you'll hear some more about what Jed was up to -- language he used to describe his experience on the show, and post-engagement activities with yet even more women. Hannah has the goods now. She knows what to do with them. @BacheloretteABC #TheBachelorette," Kate tweeted on Tuesday night.
Kate subsequently wrote, "As much as I loathe him, intrigued to see what the hell Jed could possibly say for himself. He refused to do a quick phone interview with @people to explain himself, so will be interesting to see him writhe now. I mean, not that he's a total coward or anything. @BacheloretteABC."
As shown on the finale, Jed initially told Hannah that his romance with Haley ended one week before taping commenced, but Haley told People in June that Jed left Nashville to film the show in March still dating her and told her he was only going on the show for publicity and they'd resume their relationship once he returned home.
However, Haley alleged she never heard from Jed again, and when they bumped into each other at a music venue once filming ended, he offered her no good explanation as to what had just transpired.
"The saying is that it's not the crime, it's the cover-up, but Jed seems to believe his real fault was not telling Hannah 'all the details.' Yeah, ok -- but the fault is also GHOSTING A GIRL AFTER SLEEPING WITH HER & TELLING YOU LOVED HER & WOULD BE BACK FOR HER. @BacheloretteABC."
Kate later tweeted, "Texts ALLEGEDLY from Jed made it abundantly clear he had a master plan to play the part of a good, dreamy guy to extend his run on the show for as long as possible, for his 'career,' but that he would run back to the girl whom he told, MULTIPLE times, that he loved."
Jed was also found guilty for trying to downplay the significance of his past relationship with Haley.
The finale showed Jed telling Hannah that he and the woman in question were never exclusive -- despite the fact they had vacationed alone together multiple times, she had met his family, and he told her, "I love you," several times.
Because Jed had been dishonest with Hannah, the Bachelorette dumped him and called off their engagement.
But things between Hannah and Jed apparently weren't good even before the People story published Haley's claims. Apparently life was not a dream for Hannah and Jed after the marriage proposal.
"A key sentence most didn't pick up on during the breakup: Hannah said that even prior to the cheating bombshell, things weren't good. What did she mean? Yeah -- we'll tell you. (Hint: apparently ol' Jed had an ego that needed to be validated. A lot.) @people @BacheloretteABC."
Hannah told Jed, for instance, she had received screenshots via text of two women at his apartment in Nashville. Hannah alleged the women came over after she had visited Nashville and spent time with Jed and he had thrown them in a pool at some point.
"There were also photos and reports from multiple other women talking about how he partied with them post-engagement and in NO way acted like a man in love or devoted to someone else. And yes -- his choice of words was that he 'won the show.' @BacheloretteABC," Kate tweeted, referring to Hannah's accusation Jed had told his family and friends he "won" the show once he got home.
Jed admitted on the finale he should've returned home and bragged about how he had gotten engaged to the woman he loved -- not that he had won a competition.
Kate then confirmed People wouldn't be writing any more stories on Jed but she stands behind Hannah and The Bachelorette runner-up, Tyler Cameron, all the way.
"Nah -- it was all basically said on air and Jed is toast. He's done; no more free press for him. It's Hannah's turn now. She gets to stand strong by herself, as she deserves. (That being said: if Tyler had wanted to jump into our photo shoot... I wouldn't have kicked him out.)," Kate tweeted.
In addition to claiming People had more dirt on Jed and he didn't act like an engaged man after the show, Kate also lashed out at Jed a couple of times during her live tweeting.
"Hannah: you have the full picture. You know everything you need to know. If it walks like a duck, looks like a duck and quacks? It's a lying, cheating, self-absorbed asshat named Jed. @BacheloretteABC #TheBachelorette," Kate wrote.
Kate also called Jed "a colossal narcissist."
"[Jed used] your proposal as an excuse to show off his musical 'talents'... Get him OUT OF YOUR LIFE NOW. (If you hurry, maybe you can still grab Tyler in his Exit Limo.) @BacheloretteABC."
Jed apologized for his behavior multiple times on the finale and insisted he truly loved Hannah -- and still does -- but it just wasn't enough to convince Hannah to stay in the toxic relationship.
It's now been five weeks since Hannah dumped Jed, and now she has her sights set on "repairing [her] heart" and maybe even reconciling with Tyler.
