JoJo Fletcher Shoots Down Hook Up Rumors With Nick Viall & Her Ex


Nick Viall’s Bachelorette streak ends here!

The Season 10 and 11 runner-up was said to have made a play for incoming Season 12 star, JoJo Fletcher. However, the Bachelorette herself is coming out and putting that gossip to rest once and for all.

NEWS: JoJo Fletcher's History With Jake Pavelka Revealed

In a conference call with reporters on May 20, the 25-year-old shot down rumors of a romance with the 35-year-old male model with a laugh and a simple statement: “The Nick rumors are absolutely not true.”

Another story she’s denying is the one that said she and her ex, Chad Rookstool, hooked up after she was sent home by Ben Higgins on Bachelor 2016.

“The tabloid that came out about Chad is completely false,” she insists. “I had no idea that he had [spoken to the press] until kind of later on. So those were very untrue. And I’ve decided to completely put that in my past and not think about it again.”

Don’t mess with JoJo, y’all!

What she will admit to is having “0 percent” of a clue she’d eventually get the lead role on her own season. In fact, the Dallas beauty says she was only approached by producers about the gig a month after Ben’s finale filmed in Jamaica in November.

“It was not on my radar. It never crossed my mind,” she explains. “It's not something I was thinking about going into last season. I was definitely shocked.”
