A bit of background info.
On Wednesday night, it was revealed that Channel 10 had queerbaited Brooke’s disclosure of her past relationships, packaging her conversation with Nick Cummins about having dated women in the past as a ‘shock confession.’
People were disappointed, people were offended and a large portion of the audience couldn’t understand why Brooke’s relationship history had been advertised as a game-changing secret.

It was after the fallout of this very uncomfortable night of television, that ex-Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise contestant, Blake Coleman, decided to add in his two cents.
You see, four years ago Blake and Brooke used to date, and when they decided to end things, he claims she commenced a relationship with a woman.
Although his Instagram story has since expired, according to Pedestrian TV, this is what he wrote.
“Is now the right time to tell you that I was dating Brooke during the exact moment she decided to turn full lesbian?
I literally have no hope with women.
Just for the record she is a dope chick and a really good human. But guys, you have not felt pain and confusion until a girl leaves you for a girl.”
Speaking to Mamamia, Blake said he felt his words were being taken “out of context”.
“The amount of reporters DM’ing me about this is, only to focus on me saying she was a lesbian is alarming,” he said.
“At the point in time when me and her were dating, she decided to turn gay, at that point in time she obviously was figuring things out as any woman or man should at that age.”
Instead, Blake wishes more people were focusing on his comments that Brooke “is a really great girl and a really great human,” instead of him using the phrase “full-lesbian”.
“Many years later she actually started dating another guy so therefore there is no need for everyone to focus on ‘what sexuality she is’,” he specified.
“In our society in the present day it’s a joke when everyone is trying to pin point someones sexuality like Brookes (sic).
“She is bi, everyone should get over it. I have soo many friends in the gay community it’s not even funny, hence why my comments are not a big deal.”
However, when asked whether he regrets making his original Instagram story, he chose not to answer.
What do you think of Blake’s admission and response? Should he just have kept his mouth shut? Tell us in a comment.
