It’s a good thing the rain hasn’t started yet because that might stop Timm Hanly and Brittany Hockley from airing their dirty laundry. And there's no way we'd want that. No way.
The latest from the former Bachelor In Paradise couple? Timm has responded to Britt saying he ghosted her, saying that yeah, he really did.
“Britt’s saying I ghosted her, which is pretty fair to be honest,” the 28-year-old said in an interview with Punkee. “I had no intentions to ghost, but I just had a bit going on in my own life that I was dealing with.”
He went on to say the fact he didn’t get much of a break between The Bachelorette and BIP was also a reason for the breakup. “I moved shows so fast, and I got back and the finale had just finished airing, and everyone knew who I was, and the paps were following me, and Britt and I couldn’t even get a coffee together… it was too much, hey,” he said.
Timm said that after BIP, and the five days they’d spent together sans cameras, he had come back to Melbourne and Britt had gone back to Sydney. “It was… either pull the trigger and move, or… I don’t know,” he said. “If I had my time again I would have gone about things differently. I’m a relationship now and I’m trying to respect that relationship so that’s the only reason I haven’t spoken to Britt.”
Chatting with Hobart’s Hit100.9’s Jimmy & Nath also today, Timm said public relationships “scared” him. “It’s so full on, everyone knowing your business and stuff. I know that’s what you sign up for, but you don’t really know that until you’re in it,” he said.
Earlier this week, Britt had given a very revealing exit interview to 10Play, in which she'd revealed Timm had consistently called her his "ride or die" on the show, but that after they'd left, all that had changed. "I left and he became a different person," she said. "The second he got outside... he was not the person I had just spent the last month with... He was just a different human and... I was just so disappointed, so exasperated by the whole thing."
Despite their breakup, however, Britt says she still tried to keep in touch with Timm and check in on his mental health. "I wanted to make sure he's okay and I said let's stay friends and in contact. I never heard from him again," she said. "He ghosted me. Blocked me on everything. I just thought this speaks volumes, I'm still trying to look out for you and you can't even give me the time of day."
What did we all used to do with ourselves before Bachelor In Paradise? We honestly can't remember.
