Here’s what happens between undergraduate exes Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell when they reunite
The dust settles in between Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell, but that doesn’t mean they’re back on track.
Rachael rocked Bachelor Nation to the core when race-insensitive photos of her resurfaced online, eventually leading to the longtime host’s temporary fall Chris Harrison when he defended her.
Although Matt decided to be with her at the end of the season, they didn’t get engaged and decided to cool off after the photo scandal. He said it made him “question everything” and added, “I was wrong because at that moment and in the conversation it was that I had this – Rachael couldn’t understand what it meant to be black in America. “
However, this week the Bachelor stars met again in New York City, causing fans to wonder if they’d officially reconciled after their split.
While Rachael and Matt were in touch, they’re not back together, a source close to him tells E! News. The native Georgian tried to reach out to Matt and he agreed to see her, the source says.
