Bachelor In Paradise star Caelynn Miller-Keyes is speaking out after Blake Horstmann shared their text messages on social media.
On the premiere of the ABC show, Miller-Keyes explained she hooked up with Horstman at Stagecoach this year. She then revealed he hooked up Kristina Schulman, as well as how he discussed pursuing both Tayshia Adams and Hannah Godwin.
Horstmann was dragged on social media, with Bachelor Nation outraged over his actions, especially after Miller-Keyes confronted him on Tuesday’s episode. On Wednesday, Horstmann used Instagram to debunk some of the Miller-Keyes claims.

“To make her question my intentions in any way devastates me beyond anything I’ve ever felt. Something I’ve learned is to be completely clear because I never want to make anyone to not clearly understand my intentions again. I was under the impression it was ‘just sex’ to her, which you will see in the texts. I understand that I will probably get a lot of backlash for posting these personal text messages in my stories, but unfortunately this is the only way to have a voice since I very much feel backed into a corner,” said in his story revealed their text interaction.
Today, Miller-Keyes is speaking her truth. She used social media to admit things were taken out of context on the ABC reality TV show. There was apparently a large portion of the story that was missing when BIP aired.
“This is a complicated situation considering it’s not only on TV but has taken a life of its own on the internet. This could’ve been over after last night’s episode, but since it’s now all over Instagram, I felt like it was imperative to share my truth. We all have our own perception of how different situations unfold, and there are many sides to this story. I hope that we can all move forward and support one another, rather than tear each other down. I have moved on, and I am excited to continue to share the rest of my journey with you all,” Miller-Keyes stated in part of her lengthy Instagram message.

Here we go… I am not here to deny those text messages or the conversations that took place. Things got taken out of context on the show, and a large part of the story is missing. The reality of the situation is that Blake was not a one night stand at a music festival and the 5 am text exchange that Blake chose to share is not an accurate representation of our past relationship. I take ownership for what I said on the beach. I was upset and I let my emotions control my words. However, I did not go on a show to ruin someone’s character. I attempted to address my feelings and the situation with Blake face to face. It’s unfortunate that I didn't get the same respect in return, and I am absolutely mortified our private texts were put out there for the world to see and judge by someone who I trusted and consider a friend nonetheless. It’s clear to me that Blake and I had different ideas of what our “relationship” was. We started talking months before Stagecoach. We FaceTimed everyday and talked about potentially skipping paradise to be together. When I say he ghosted me, it was after those few months of us talking. It was my understanding there was no one else and I thought we were on the same page. What infuriates me the most is that I’m being trolled for having sex because of what I’ve been through. I want to be very clear that I am not looking for sympathy. I took the necessary steps to move on and heal, but I will not be abstinent for the rest of my life because of it. This is a complicated situation considering it’s not only on TV, but has taken a life of its own on the internet. This could’ve been over after last night’s episode, but since it’s now all over Instagram, I felt like it was imperative to share my truth. We all have our own perception of how different situations unfold and there are many sides to this story. I hope that we can all move forward and support one another, rather than tear each other down. I have moved on and I am excited to continue to share the rest of my journey with you all.
