Before the world saw Bachelor winner Courtney Robertson accept Ben Flajnik’s proposal, pictures surfaced of Ben getting a little too close with three different women. While Courtney admitted on the follow-up show that she didn’t believe Ben was cheating, she hasn’t really given her honest opinion about the rumors. She is now speaking out in an exclusive interview and Radar Online has all the details about what she really thinks about the pictures of Ben with the other women.
The model says “it was upsetting” when the pictures of Ben locking lips with another girl surfaced in the media. “At the end of the day, if I didn’t trust him, I wouldn’t be with him, period,” she explains. One has to wonder how Ben explained the kissing situation to Courtney Robertson. She doesn’t mention that awkward conversation between the couple, but does turn it around. “Here’s the thing: I have a lot of platonic guy friends and Ben knows that,” she says. “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.”
Well, at least Courtney stayed away from her male friends; and since Ben didn’t, he has become a target for the media. And she does forgive him for not having his guard up. “He has a lot of female friends and he’s a playful, flirty guy who likes to party with everyone. I get that about him and I’m completely fine with it. He’s a really warm and social person,” she explains. “Am I thrilled about the photos? No. But I believe him when he says he didn’t cheat.”
One has to wonder what he told her about the pictures. It must be a good explanation for her to forgive him holding another woman’s face in his hands while she is standing on her toes to kiss him.
