The Bachelor's Bekah Martinez Spreads Allegations Against Contestant Leo Dottavio, Who Denies the Claims

Bachelor Nation stars Bekah Martinez and Leandro “Leo” Dottavio are currently in a feud on social media after she spread accusations of sexual harassment that were made against him.

Bekah was a contestant on Arie‘s season of The Bachelor earlier this year and Leo was a contestant on Becca‘s season of The Bachelorette, which will air its finale on Monday night.

It all started after Bekah shared a screencap of a comment that Leo allegedly left on someone’s Instagram five years ago saying, “You need my big d–k.” Women then DMed Bekah with their own accusations against Leo, which she screencapped and shared on her Instagram stories.

Leo says that the comment was Photoshopped and he sent DMs to Bekah denying the allegations. He also sent her a screencap of a molestation accusation that someone sent to him about Bekah.

In her Instagram stories, Bekah told her fans that Leo‘s lawyers reached out to her and asked for her to take down all the stories and to issue an apology, which she refused to do.

In a statement, Leo said, “There have been some recent stories about me that have garnered attention and I want to address them. I want to start by saying no one has ever directly accused me of sexual harassment. No one has ever come to me in any way and told me I made them feel uncomfortable. However, I am not a perfect person, nor have I ever claimed to be. Did I do things in college that I would be embarrassed about now? Absolutely. Was I a part of my culture, the times, movies? Yes. I have grown as a person since college. I am not the man I was two years ago let alone 14 years ago. It’s important for women to speak out if they felt uncomfortable or harassed. I support that. If there was anyone I made feel uncomfortable why not come to me? I would love an opportunity to right my wrongs and speak to any woman that wants to tell me how and when I made them feel uncomfortable. I want to take this as an opportunity to better myself and the treatment of women in my life.”

    omfg she is so annoying. I love how we are to believe everything about him, but not about her. Why should we only believe the female victims and not the male victims? She is making herself look like a hypocrite. Apparently men are the only people who can make up allegations. She will do anything to stay relevant.

    I man so true,give me a high five.

    That is called heresay, when did it become ok to accuse someone of something with nothing more than a unsourced, unprovable allegation…. O forget this is the ” me too era”, were men are guilty until proven more guilty.

  • Lexi

    True. This is the third or fourth time IIRC that she has posted stuff she knew would make news. From the start, it became clear she wanted publicity and would do anything to get it. This seems to be another case of that and if she is lying, I hope Leandro takes it all the way.
