The biggest news about this May’s new season of The Bachelorette is not the fact that, for the first time ever, there will be two women — Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson — facing off for the men’s affections. The biggest news, as Star has learned exclusively, is that Kaitlyn was already involved in a serious relationship while she filmed The Bachelor last fall…and she returned to her boyfriend before she began filming The Bachelorette!
Kaitlyn has been dating handsome firefighter Trevor Partlo for a year in their hometown of Vancouver, a friend of the couple tells Star. “She loves being in the spotlight, and Trevor knows it,” the friend says. “When she signed on to The Bachelor, Trevor told me, ‘She’s just doing it to get famous. It doesn’t mean anything. She’ll come back and it’ll be life as normal.'”
When Kaitlyn, who was one of Chris Soules’ top three finalists, returned home, “she told Trevor, ‘The whole thing was a joke — I only saw Chris, like, nine times,'” the friend claims. “But she admitted to another pal that she and Chris had been ‘intimate.'” And now that she’s on The Bachelorette, that could be the end for her and Trevor.
“I know Kaitlyn has told Trevor in the past that she loves him,” the friend adds. “She’s a free spirit, but she can also be very manipulative. And I haven o doubt that actually finding a husband on The Bachelorette will be the last thing on her mind.”
