Amanda Stanton Exposes Robby Hayes’s Cheating, Josh Murray Chimes In (PHOTO)
Prior to the reunion airing, Amanda did speak to the press, saying Robby never really treated her like a girlfriend.
She really doubled down on that during the ep, telling Chris Harrison, “We didn’t really talk a whole lot. I feel like he kind of hung out with me when it was convenient for him.”
She added, “For me, that’s not really OK. I gave him probably, maybe 20 chances. He’s just not ready for a relationship.”
That’s when twins (and the Cali girl’s besties) Emily and Haley Ferguson brought up the rumors that Robby cheated on Amanda while at a Zac Brown Band concert in Colorado in August.
“There was[sic] pictures coming out that he was with another girl when supposedly he had been boyfriend-girlfriend with Amanda,” they said.
The “social influencer” himself then came out, telling his side of the story which was that, after the show, they “had a blast,” but that there’s “more to a relationship than just hanging out.”
“I think in a relationship, there’s certain wants, needs, and expectations that you need from your counterpart,” he stated.
He concluded, “I think it’s safe to say that, on both sides, neither one of us were consistent with that. And there have been times of struggle.”
That spurred Chris to confront him about the claims that he was “unfaithful” to the single mom, and his response was simply that it was “false” and he “did not” hook up with that girl.
“It was pictures of me close to a girl but it was not, by any means, being unfaithful,” he rationalized the photos of him allegedly cheating.
“The picture did look like y’all are making out, let’s be honest,” Amanda stated.
“If you’re saying you didn’t, I believe you. You were there, not me. But it did look like it.”
The on-stage interaction culminated with the former pro swimmer blaming being in the “limelight” for the pics, while she said they just “were looking for different types of things.”
However, that wasn’t enough clarity for Robby, who then took to Twitter to explain his side of the story, which mostly consisted of him slamming Amanda for “playing the victim” and “living a “double life.”
“While I won’t be one to resort to vicious social media attacks, at the finale, I felt like I was sitting next to a stranger,” he started in the lengthy post.
“I’ll never understand why there’s such a desperate need to present an ‘innocent person’ and resort to allowing allegations that are blatantly untrue be said about me by ‘the twins’ while one sits back and ‘unknowingly’ watches these malicious attacks continue against me.”
He continued, “I’ve upheld their name both publicly and privately with respect, regardless of the several ongoing THREATS I received.

“History is repeatedly showing that some people thrive off of using the media and their ‘army’ to manipulate viewers to place one-sided blame, constantly play the ‘victim’ and use their friends to try and assassinate one’s character,” he concluded.
“Your story-line is getting OLD; at some point it’s just on YOU to stop living a double-life, and at this point, everyone sees through it. God bless.”
Amanda wasn’t going to take that sitting down, shooting back, “‘A desperate need to present an innocent persona.’ - the guy who denies cheating when there is photo proof #beamanalready.”
That’s when the 27-year-old gal’s other BIP ex (and Robby’s former friend), Josh Murray, got in on the Twitter drama.
Responding to Robby’s post, he wrote (and later deleted) that he has “100 more pages to add” about Amanda, hash tagging that it’s “#urturn.”
Robby then jokingly offered to “combine libraries” and Josh replied, “Not sure there would be commercial space big enough for just 1.”
The spurned exes weren’t done yet, as they both retweeted a post about how you should “never trust a woman who leaves her kids to find a man.”
Meanwhile, Amanda reacted to this move by calling it “so disappointing.”

Finally, in the late hours of Monday night, the lifestyle blogger had her mic drop moment — she released the cheating pic.
“Look what you made me do,” she captioned the shot of what appears to be Robby in a hat and white tee making out with a blonde girl in a half-pony.
