“The Bachelorette” 2015 contestant JJ Lane was reportedly beaten up by a group of unidentified men after filming the “Men Tell All” episode in Los Angeles. It was said that the suspects were waiting outside the studio anticipating Lane’s exit. The motive for the attack, however, has yet to be confirmed.
As previously reported by TMZ, “The Bachelorette” 2015 alum was left with two black eyes after being jumped by a gang. JJ Lane was reportedly attacked by at least five men before Ben Zorn helped break up the fight. He was immediately sent to the emergency room following the incident.
Lane recently took to Twitter to explain that the brawl happened because he stood up for a friend. The reality star added that he was at a “wrong place and wrong time.” He shared that while he suffered some injuries he was able to hit four of his attackers and have them running away.
ABC has refused to comment on the recent brawl. It is yet to be confirmed if the fight will hurt his chances in the upcoming “Bachelor in Paradise.”
JJ Lane may have been eliminated from “The Bachelorette” 2015 but not before he developed a special connection with fellow cast member Clint Arlis. The two were even dubbed the “Brokeback Bachelors.”
Clint previously admitted that he has connected with JJ more than Kaitlyn Bristowe.
“I never thought that I’d meet someone here. … We’ve grown so close – almost too close,” he said, hinting on a possible romance.
