Sadly today, stories about The Bachelor's Alex Nation surfaced, putting her in a pretty harsh light.
Some gossip sites and magazines reported that Alex had abruptly left her ex-boyfriend Tom Barbour (who was left disabled after a construction site accident) just months before committing to appearing on the TV show to find love.
Some even went so far as saying Tom 'fled the country' so he didn't have to see Alex on TV.
Well a representative of Alex has revealed to us the below, setting the record straight:
“The claims made by an “insider” in New Idea on Monday, September 12 regarding Alex Nation and her past relationship with Tom Barbour are defamatory, completely false and misleading. Alex and Tom’s relationship ended amicably in September, 2015, with both parties agreeing it is best for them to part ways. Claims suggesting anything else are incredibly hurtful to both Alex and Tom, who remain on good terms. Tom is now overseas on a scholarship to study, and not overseas to escape Alex as suggested by New Idea.”
One quick look at Tom's Insta would tell you he's having a cracker of a time overseas and apparently had a massive send off, which Alex attended.
