This season of "The Bachelor" had no shortage of drama. The season finale revealed that Arie Luyendyk Jr. broke up with the woman he proposed to, Becca Kufrin. Now the reality dating show's "missing" cast member, Bekah Martinez, says that Luyendyk Jr. was direct messaging her on Twitter.
The 23-year-old nanny tweeted screenshots of their alleged exchanges. One image showed Luyendyk messaging her on Feb. 2 about a picture showing Martinez's face on a milk carton.
"This may just win the internet today," he wrote in the message. "Such a shame they didn't use your license photo."
"Lol! I made that," she responded at the time. "So there was no way in hell I was using the license photo…hahaha." He then continued, "So good. You seriously crack me up. Hope all is well."
But that wasn't the end of their back and forth. The two allegedly shared messages the following day. The exchanges all took place after "The Bachelor" ended filming. Since Martinez was cast off the show, it's unclear why Luyendyk was still conversing with her.
Martinez took to Twitter to allege that Luyendyk has DMed multiple exes. She then wished Becca, the fiancée he dumped, and his current fiancée, Lauren Burnham, the best of luck — but not Arie.
"I honestly can’t wish happiness for Arie right now. It’s something I’ll need to work towards. I’m still angry on behalf of my friend who I feel was terribly taken advantage of. I can forgive eventually, but I’m just not there yet!"
Martinez made headlines during the show when she was reported missing by her mother. As previously reported, the 23-year-old said that it was as all a "misunderstanding" and she was just in the mountains after filming the reality show. She explained that her mother couldn't get in contact with her and freaked out.
"She had been expecting contact with me she didn't get," she said. “I just decided to go to the mountains with my friends for a couple weeks and I was there for six or seven days without phone service which I thought I was going to have phone service and I told my mother that I would."
