Bachelorette Season 17 winner Blake Moynes shares his reaction to ex-fiance Katie Thurston saying he used the public breakup for fame.
Bachelorette exes share VERY different takes on split amid cheating allegations
It’s been five months since Katie Thurston and Blake Moynes ended their relationship. The former couple got engaged during the Season 17 finale of The Bachelorette.
However, they confirmed their split in October, almost three months after the episode aired. Shortly afterward, Katie went public with her new romance with castoff contestant John Hersey.
While Hersey defended his lady love amid allegations that there was cheating involved, Blake mostly remained silent.
During a recent podcast episode, Moynes shared that while he didn’t think there was physical cheating, he does suspect Katie of emotionally cheating on him. E! News reports that the Bachelorette winner suspects overlap in the two relationships.
Not so, according to Thurston and Hersey. The newly shacked-up couple made a joint appearance on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s Off the Vine podcast. They wanted to clear the air regarding the beginning of their relationship.
Of whether she cheated on Blake, Katie said, “There was not overlap. There was nothing but respect. It’s just two different situations.”
The couple also said that Blake Moynes saying otherwise is him “capitalizing” on the split, per Us Weekly.

Blake Moynes opened up his direct messages to questions from fans. He shared his responses on his Instagram Stories.
One follower asked a pointed question about Hersey and Thurston’s allegation. “Any comments on someone saying you took advantage of the public breakup?”
In a video response, Blake chose not to “ignite” the situation. He calmly explained that his ex and her new man are “allowed to have their opinions and share their side of things.”
Rather than clap back, he chose to diffuse the situation. “It’s all good,” he said of where the stands with his ex-fiance now.
Is he dating his PR manager?
Earlier this week, Blake Moynes hinted on his social media that he has also moved on. He seemed to confirm that he’s dating someone.
Another question he received on Instagram was whether he’s dating “Lori K” or not. Lori Krebs is a talent agent with her own agency.
Blake Moynes is a client with Lori K. PR. He’s been tagging her a lot on his social media, causing fans to wonder what’s up.
However, according to the Bachelorette alum, they aren’t dating. He did say that he has a “great” relationship with her. In fact, it’s through his agent that he recently hooked up with Jax Taylor from Vanderpump Rules. Taylor is also a client of the firm.
Moynes has been hanging out with the Bravo cast so much, fans wonder if he’s joining the show. Click here to read his response to that question.
