Matt james keep Rachael Kirkconnell very close to him – walking around New York – as they try to bounce back as a couple after his racism scandal.
The former ‘bachelor’ was hanging out with Rachael in the Big Apple on Tuesday – walking side-by-side on Manhattan’s Lower East Side and even wrapping his arm around his back as they entered a building.
Matt told People last week that he was “focusing” on his relationship with Rachael, trying to make it work, and these snaps show just how much energy he puts into it. An eyewitness told us the couple were holding hands at one point.
However, he always keeps a low profile, under a hoodie and sometimes a face mask. A bit similar to what we saw a little over a week after seeing them grab a beer with friends in Santa Monica. Again, Matt was hiding under a hoodie.
Despite all the public attention and pressure … their hangout in New York City looks like it goes beyond racing issues. Even though the ‘Bachelor’ nation hasn’t had it since Matt rejected her at the ‘After the Final Rose’ ceremony.
As you know … Rachael had posed for photos with sisterhood sisters at a pre-war themed party, and also liked the racism-insensitive photos on IG, some sporting the flag confederate.
Rachael made it clear that she was still in love with Matt after the split, and all signs are that he’s also all-in for her.
Cue that Peaches & Herb track!
