Bachelor in Paradise

Was Marcus Grodd Secretly Dating a Reality Star While Engaged to Lacy Faddoul?

Hmm, well this ain’t good. While Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd were the picture of adoring love in the Bachelor in Paradise finale (and pretty much all season) on September 8, it sounds like there could be a couple of bumps in the road ahead. The engaged lovebirds may be in the midst of planning their wedding, but they’re now embroiled in cheating rumors — and it’s all surrounding Marcus!

Earlier today, we were telling you about how Groddoul, who have been engaged since late June, only saw one another every couple of weeks in the nearly three months since the proposal/finale taping. According to In Touch Weekly insiders, during that separation — she in San Diego, he in Dallas — Marcus, 26, started spending time with, get this, country star Jessie James Decker’s younger sis, Sydney Rae James!

The source says that the 23-year-old star of E!’’s Eric & Jessie: Game On “went on a date and kissed” the former Bachelorette contestant while he was betrothed to Lacy.

“Sydney thought his romance with Lacy was over,” adds the source. “He was all over her.”

On the other hand, the magazine claims that Marcus’s Bachelor 18 alum fiancée has no clue of any of the gossip and is still focused on their nuptials. “Poor Lacy has been planning their wedding this whole time. If she knew about Sydney, she’d flip,” the insider asserts.

Hmm, it all sounds a bit random and contrived to us, but who knows with Bachelor Nation. Though if we were to go off of what we saw happening between Marcus and Lacy on BiP, it’s pretty tough to imagine the totally devoted fella forgetting about his lady love that quickly…

What do you think: Did Marcus step out on Lacy or is it all a bunch of baloney? Share your theories in the comments below.
