It would appear, according to former Bachelor in Paradise star Leah Costa at least, that Grant and Ali are absolutely no longer.
Michelle Andrews and I recap the glory that is Bachelor in Paradise. Post continues after audio.
“I’ve actually spoken to Ali since and she was like, ‘I should’ve listened to you. You warned me.’ And I was like, ‘Yup, Grant just wants to be famous’,” Leah told Yahoo Be in an interview on Monday. “I feel really sorry for her – I don’t think she deserved to have her heart broken.”
“She really did want to find love and I think Grant just chose the easiest way of staying there,” Leah said. “She got caught in the crossfire.”
She added she felt she “dodged a bullet” after she was unceremoniously ditched by Grant for Ali after her date with him on the show.
Ali backed this suggestion up with an Instagram post that seems to imply the fitness expert is moving on… from Grant?
“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go #dontsweatthesmallstuff
#autumnleaves #letitgo #turnanewleaf,” Ali captioned an image of her looking thoughtful in ripped jeans.
Yep, sounds like a post-breakup Insta post to us.
And if they did break up because, as Leah said, her US beau was just chasing fame – well it would match another woman’s description of Grant as being a little shady.
In 2016, Grant appeared in JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette. On the night of his debut, a woman named Erin Aschow tweeted the following:
“Alright, I don’t normally do this kind of thing… but this shit stain is going to be on TV tonight on a show many of you tune into. Grant Kemp was in a serious, long-term relationship with a friend of mine. A beautiful, smart, witty, kind and all around fabulous woman. He applied to be on The Bachelorette when they were dating and broke up with her (no explanation/shut off his phone) to chase fame on TV.”
Yerrrrrrp. Interesting, that’s for sure.
