'Bachelor' Juan Pablo Galavis' Shady Secret Could Ruin His Entire Season

OMG 23

Juan Pablo GalavisDang. That sure didn't take long. His season of The Bachelor hasn't even started yet, and already there's a report saying Juan Pablo Galavis is a deadbeat dad -- not the gem of a father all the promos are making him out to be.

Geez. It usually takes a good two weeks or so into the season before the new Bachelor is ripped to shreds in the press. Apparently some thought they might as well get a jump start on things to kick off 2014.

Of course ... the story is from the National Enquirer, so we can't place too much weight on it. It claims that Juan Pablo failed to pay his ex, Carla Rodriguez, two years of child support payments for their daughter Camila. And that's only the start of it.

Supposedly he only took an interest in the little girl's life once he was forced to fork over the money -- which is downright disappointing if it really is true.

But it can't be ... right? I mean, from all the clips we've seen of Juan Pablo and Camila, they look like the perfect little father-daughter duo -- and he appears to be totally devoted to her. Just check out this photo of the two of them from Christmas that he posted to Twitter!

OMG. If that isn't a dad who truly loves his child ... then I don't know what is. (You can't fake that stuff, people.)

I may change my mind as the season moves forward, but for now I refuse to accept that Juan Pablo is merely trying to portray the role of a loving and caring father for the sake of wooing 27 (yep ... he has two extras) women as The Bachelor. (I want to enjoy his season -- not loathe him from day one.)

And even if the report about him not paying child support for two years is true -- it's very possible that he realized he needed to step up to the plate and became the awesome dad we all think he is. Everybody deserves the benefit of the doubt. Especially someone as sexy and delicious as this dude.

Do you think Juan Pablo is a good dad or simply "playing" one on TV?

That's a load of crap...Juan Pablo isn't a dead beat dad the tabloids is trying to start s.hit

He is sincere, though I am wondering if he can offer what a woman needs and wants too. It seems like so far it's only about him and his daughter.

I could care less abut Juan Pallo. Des didn't even give hi a one on one date. She saw right through him. He is boring. He isn't even that good looking with that kewpie doll haircut. He is creepy. I love this show but this season will be all about the women and who will be the next Bachelorette. I think fathers should not be the Bachelor and Moms should not be on either. Ruins it for me.

Pictures aren't always what they appear to be..I'm sure he loves his daughter. However why does then show even have people who have kid's. The show is about SINGLE people finding a significant other to share a life together.It just kills it for me..who ever ends up w/ him will have baby mama drama..no need for that!

Again, when will you report about something ELSE besides these jokers, the prince/princess and the damn kardashins 

Tia Tarpley-Chaffin

Why you would even post about an article that was in the National Enquirer!? Everyone knows that shit is not true, so you continuing with their smear campaign shows where your intentions are! I am unliking this page...You're grasping at straws for a story and it's disgusting!!!!! :(

Gotta be a good Dad, and hey, better late then never, i am in the same boat with no father for my daughter, so i say if he was slacking or income was an issue, nothing beats having both parents in your life, every little girl needs her father! :) I support him all the way. And why would he risk his reputation on T.V. if he was a dead Beat, for the world to know?? don't think so, but nobody is perfect, give him a chance!

I think he's a man - and they all hate to pay child support.  Most of the time you see the two together they look posed.  We will see wont we?  Dont be too surprised if you find out its true.

we'll see.  I know some pretty awesome role models of guys who are great dads/teachers.  I can tell a good one when I see one, so let me decide  ;)
