Blake Horstmann Says He's 'Really Hurt' By What Becca Kufrin Said About Their Relationship

Blake Horstmann is speaking out about his relationship with Becca Kufrin.

In an episode of Behind the Rose on Wednesday (September 1), the 32-year-old reality star responded to Becca‘s claims that they have “always been friends” but there wasn’t anything romantic going on between them.

“I was hurt by the podcast—and like you said, it’s no secret that we were hanging out prior,” Blake said. “My friends certainly know the truth. Most of the people in Bachelor world know the truth. Her friends sure as s–t know the truth. So, it is what it is. The one thing I’m gonna say is maybe Becca is protecting something or someone, and for that I respect her for that. But it just sucks that it happened the way it did.”

He went on to say that he “just never expected that from her” and added, “I’m just never gonna talk about her again. Because anytime I do, s–t gets written in everything, and it just gets everything blown up more so. The f–king podcasts are—it really, really hurt. But it is what it is, moving on.”

During an interview on Click Bait With Bachelor Nation, Becca told hosts Joe Amabile and Natasha Parker that she and Blake have “always been friends” but implied it wasn’t anything romantic.

“We’ve always been supportive of one another,” The Bachelorette alum explained. “In terms of the ‘talking,’ yeah, we’ve been in touch very sporadically, but nothing that I would say would warrant…a potential relationship.”

Blake finished as runner-up on Becca‘s season of The Bachelorette in 2018. She confirmed her split from winnter Garrett Yrigoyen in September 2020.

He opened up about their breakup earlier this year.
