Just when we thought there couldn't possibly be more off-screen drama with Hannah Brown's guys on The Bachelorette, they proved us wrong -- and it involves the person we least expected. Apparently, Peter left his girlfriend to go on the show, at least according to what she's saying. 

  • In a new interview, Calee Lutes says Peter ended their relationship to go on The Bachelorette

    As she told Entertainment Tonight, she and Peter met when he was training to work for Delta in Atlanta last June, and they started dating long distance. They dated for five months, and Calee says they were serious.

    "He told me he loved me for the first time in October, and we talked almost every time we saw each other about how we were going to make it last long term," she said. "He wanted me to move out to LA to be with him, and he wanted us to get an apartment together."

  • Calee said they'd met each other's families and even talked about having kids, and then, in December, it was over.

    She said that two days before Christmas, Peter said that they should end things before they got even more serious. Then, Calee realized that a Bachelorette producer had followed him on Instagram, and although she didn't realize how significant that was at the time, now she has obviously put two and two together. 

    "He immediately deleted EVERY trace of me on Instagram," she said. "He deleted our pictures, which is expected, but he also untagged me from photos, deleted my comments from his page and went as far as unliking my photos/deleting his comments from my Instagram as well." 


  • Calee said Peter never actually told her that he was going on The Bachelorette -- she found out when the cast was announced, like everyone else.

    She added that Peter hasn't apologized to her, and that she feels betrayed. 

    "He absolutely betrayed me," she said. "He interviewed for a reality dating show while simultaneously planning a future with me. I trusted him entirely and he pulled the rug out from under me. Also, if all of this wasn't bad enough, I've had multiple people reach out to me and tell me that he was seeing other women while we were exclusive." 


  • This isn't the first time a contestant's ex has outed him this season.

    Not too long ago, Jed's ex-girlfriend shared a story that's a lot like this one. We never would have suspected that Peter would have done something similar. 

    "The more episodes I watch, the more mad it makes me seeing him play with another girl’s emotions. I knew I would regret letting him get away with this," she said. "Sure, what Peter did isn’t as bad as what Jed did, but that shouldn’t excuse what he did. It still is a horrible thing to do to someone who you profess to love, it really shows his character." 

  • We can't imagine what this must have been like for Calee -- and we're pretty disappointed in Peter.

    Honestly, we thought he was one of the good ones -- he has a cool job, his family is so awesome, and he's always been so sweet to Hannah ... especially in comparison to guys like Luke P. If what Calee's saying is true, we're beyond bummed that he turned out to be that kind of person. Come on, dude. 

  • Now we're just waiting for Peter or Hannah to respond. 

    We are truly interested to hear what Peter's version of this story is, and if Hannah is upset about it, we know she'll let him have it. Don't mess with Hannah Beast!
