According to So Dramatic! podcast, the lovebirds called it quits only weeks after leaving Paradise together, leading Hanly to immediately reconnect with his ex.
“Timm and Brittany are not together [anymore],” podcast host Megan Pustetto stated, according to an unnamed Bachelor source. “They left Paradise together, but Timm ended things with her a few weeks after that, and she was devastated.”
“This week, Timm was spotted with a mystery brunette," she added. "She’s his ex-girlfriend who personally confirmed to me after The Bachelorette last year that her and Timm dated for five years and had been on/off for the last two years.
“Timm told Briana just before Angie’s [Kent] season that he was going on the show and she wasn’t happy because they weren’t over yet.”
Pustetto also claimed that Hanly had been in contact with De La Motte during his time on The Bachelorette last year.
“I am told they were still in contact during Angie’s season. Timm hadn’t gotten over their breakup and would talk about her constantly in the house,” she said.
“They got back together once he was off the show, and they have been on/off since,” describing Timm and Brittany’s relationship as “short-lived.”
Bachelor In Paradise airs tonight at 7:30 on Network Ten.
