"The Bachelorette" couple Shawn Booth and Kaitlyn Bristowe insist they are still in love and a marriage is in their future. However, quite a number of sources have come out claiming that the couple is faking their relationship for fame and money.
The latest website to come out with a similar claim is In Touch magazine. According to this media outlet, the couple has already broken up, and they are refusing to admit it in order to keep the perks that come from being a "Bachelorette" couple.
Insiders who were at the Fashion Week in New York City have reportedly confirmed to In Touch that the duo was faking their relationship for the cameras.
"They were so lovey-dovey. But, when the cameras turned off, they immediately stopped holding hands. Kaitlyn jumped on her phone while Shawn sat there checking out the beautiful models. They acted like total strangers," an insider told the publication, according to Celeb Dirty Laundry.
"Kaitlyn and Shawn really did love each other at first," another insider said. "But, he was constantly on her about who she was texting and talking to. Shawn never showed this side of himself during the show. Kaitlyn eventually realized that she didn't want to be with someone like that."
Booth's possessive nature is well-documented. During his time on season 11 of "The Bachelorette", ABC's dating reality show, viewers got to witness how jealous and insecure Booth became when Bristowe admitted to sleeping with another contestant, Nick Viall.
And not everyone is a fan of Booth's behaviour.
Booth's family allegedly blame Bristowe for bringing out the worst in him. This, according to Celeb Dirty Laundry source, is one reason why they have decided to boycott a wedding in case the pair decides to get hitched.
"Shawn's family has nothing nice to say about Kaitlyn, they can't believe that Shawn would propose to her after she slept with Nick Viall on national television," a source told Celeb Dirty Laundry. "And, they think that Kaitlyn brings out the worst in Shawn – they hate seeing him a jealous and insecure mess. Shawn's Dad has told him that they won't be attending the wedding."
