In a discussion on Facebook, Abbie apparently shared a comment stating that she’s “all for open relationships” and added that she doesn’t take issue with people who cheat on their partners. “I think monogamy is toxic so cheating doesn’t make me feel ‘sick’,” the post appears to read.
This latest revelation is completely at odds with Matt’s own views about relationships – in an interview earlier this year stated he would love to emulate his parents’ own over 30-year-strong relationship.
In the finale, we saw, despite Matt telling Abbie: “I’ve never met anyone like you” and the pair sharing a tearful, emotional final date, he decides Chelsie is the one for him. “It’s just my heart belongs with someone else,” Matt says.
Naturally, the news doesn’t go down well and Abbie – who insisted that she was in love with Matt – who then says “I couldn’t even cry if I tried… Maybe I don’t love him.”
Matt gave Chelsie his final rose, but could his sexual chemistry with runner-up Abbie cause problems?
