Peter Weber Reacts to Ex Kelley Flanagan's Interview About Their Breakup, Says Her Comments Were 'Calculated'

The Bachelor‘s Peter Weber is reacting to ex-girlfriend Kelley Flanagan‘s comments about their breakup.

In a recent interview, Kelley said that her relationship with Peter “ended really badly” before adding that she told him to “get the hell out of” her life.

A few days later, Peter took to his Bachelors in the City podcast with Dustin Kendrick to react to what Kelley shared.

“I’m going to be so brutally honest with you guys… and just speak from the heart. I thought it was very calculated,” Peter said. “I thought after hearing how it went that it was very trying to push for a headline. Very calculated, very disingenuous. That’s too bad. I didn’t necessarily expect that from Kelley.”

“This has been half a year, which is even crazier now, in my opinion, that more podcasts are continuing to come out and talk about this. There is nothing new here. There is no new news,” Peter added. “This is literally half a year old, and that’s why I bring it back to this calculated point that I talked about in the beginning and wanting to ride it as long as she possibly can, or make headlines, or get people talking.”

Peter and Kelley first split in December 2020 before deciding to give their relationship another chance right around Valentine’s Day. They split for good shortly after.

“I’m not confrontational. Even if we were not meant to ever be together again, I hate the idea of not being able to at least be cordial with someone that you were so close to at one point and meant so much to you,” Peter added. “I do not like that idea. A reason behind me asking how Kelley’s doing was to possibly get to that point.”

He also said that he texted Kelley a few weeks ago to try and work things out, but claimed he got “zero response.”

“[She] goes on and would talk about our private relationship to the public, and not, again, to the only person, other than her, that should matter in that relationship, or failed relationship,” Peter said. “…That’s what I wasn’t OK with. It screamed, ‘I want a headline! I want to ride this out as long as I can!’… I have an issue with that.”

He added, “I would love to have a private talk with her and not do it for the public or to get headlines going or for the media to pick it up. That’s not what I’m about.”

In a recent interview, Peter revealed a few things that Bachelor producers encourage contestants to do.
