"The Bachelor" season finale has just unveiled that Ben Flajnik chose Courtney Robertson to be his lawfully wedded wife. However, as soon as the show finished, the couple began to argue and new photos prompted some to say that Ben was cheating.
Monday night revealed Courtney Robertson as the girl of Ben's dreams. The pick outraged some fans who had watched an entire season of Robertson depicting herself as a mean and catty girl.
What's more shocking, however is that even Ben was taken aback when it became his turn to see America's point of view. According to People Magazine, after watching the video from the season, Ben became upset over the way that Courtney had behaved and stopped talking to her.
"The woman that I saw on TV isn't the Courtney that I know," Ben said during "The Bachelor's After the Final Rose" Monday. "Those are the moments and the instances that led to Courtney and I not talking for a time while the show aired. We were essentially broken up."
Courtney later talked about how unhappy the separation had made her.
"He didn't send flowers or a card or anything," Courtney said. "It was awful. There were days where I didn't leave the house, and I just laid there and cried ... He abandoned me."
Not helping the situation, photographs were then released which revealed what appeared to be Ben kissing other women. Ben insisted that the photos were deceptive.
"I am not kissing those women [in those photos]. It's as simple as that," he said. "On my father's grave," he swore to Chris, "I haven't kissed another woman, I haven't hooked up with another woman. I haven't cheated on Courtney."
However despite the many tumultuous events, Ben confirmed that he and Courtney were now doing much better.
"We're engaged. We're in a good place," Ben said. "Now that the main part of the show, and all the negativity is gone, it can only get better ... The root of the problem was us not being able to be with each other and talk about these things."
