In a video from the party, Bristowe could be seen with her arm around Clark, sparking romance rumors. Bristowe split from her fiancé Jason Tartick in August of this year. Some fans started speculating about infidelity, prompting Bristowe to respond.
“Hi! Here to say that there was never an ounce of cheating happening and I will not stand for this rumor,” Bristowe wrote in an Instagram comment. “Y’all are NASTY in here. Anywho. Swear on my dogs lives. No cheating went on. So we can just put that to rest. Thank you!! Happy new year everyone. Go donate some blood or somethin!”
Bristowe Tells Haters, ‘Your Words Hurt’
Bristowe took to Instagram stories on Monday to respond to the haters. She admitted, “You would think by now I’d be used to the hate. I’m not. Your words hurt. Your shaming hurts.” Bristowe added that “this shouldn’t be how you spend day 1 of a new year.”
“You should not be this invested in someone you don’t even know or respect,” Bristowe continued. “It’s actually scary, and I know looking inward might be even scarier for you. But. The bullying is next level.”
The DWTS champ added, “I wish I could just share my truth and tell you my side. It’s hard to bite my dang tongue sometimes. But you just go on and continue to have your own little made up story in your head and believe what you want to believe.”
Bristowe also posted photos of herself wearing a sweater that reads, “BE F*CKING NICE,” along with a quote about not caring when “someone has an opinion about my life choices.”
