Bachelor Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell spent time together in New York City earlier this week after their February split.
Matt james and Rachael Kirkconnell maybe reunited, but they’re not back together, according to E! News. Bachelor Nation went into a frenzy when Reality Steve reported that Matt and Rachael were in New York City together in early April, but there was reportedly no romantic reconciliation between the exes, who met during the season 25 of The Bachelor. The exes “have been in contact but are not back together,” a source tells E! The site also reported that Matt and Rachael’s reunion in New York City took place because she “tried to reach him”, and he “finally agreed” to see her.
“Matt and Rachael are just friends,” said the E! “He has no intention of dating her in the future.” Rachael was Matt’s last choice on The Bachelor, which was filmed in the fall of 2020. Although they were not engaged, they left the show as a couple. As The Bachelor aired in January and February, Rachael found herself at the center of a major racism controversy when controversial old photos of her surfaced online. In the photos, she was attending a pre-war themed party.

The situation obviously had a negative impact on Racahel and Matt’s relationship, and on After the Final Rose in March, they revealed they had broken up weeks earlier. Rachael apologized and took responsibility for her past actions in a number of Instagram posts, as well as on After the Final Rose, but the damage was done. “As Rachael acknowledged in his apology, there is a lot of work to be done,” Matt said on ATFR. “I have to take a step back and allow him to do this job. I can’t wait to see her do this job. We are not together.

Matt admittedly “rejected” Rachael’s talk about the past at first, calling it an Internet slander. However, when Rachael was clear, he started to “question everything” about their relationship, he said. In a follow-up interview on Good Morning America, he also admitted that he didn’t have deep enough conversations about race with white contestants during his season. “The hindsight is 20/20,” he said, “but I probably should have asked more specific questions.”
