It's a Bachelor connection fans didn't see coming!
On Feb. 18, Hannah Brown's brother, Patrick Brown, posted a photo of himself hanging out with Jed Wyatt's ex Haley Stevens. "Ready to celebrate you this weekend…Bud," he wrote along with winking and kissing emojis. Patrick also played Ashley McBryde's "American Scandal" in the background, featuring the lyrics, "Don't tell me the world couldn't handle a good old-fashioned American scandal. Hold me baby."
Haley then re-shared the post and wrote, "Can't Wait Bro" along with smirking and kissing emojis.
It's unclear when or how Haley and Patrick met, but the post comes less than two years after Bachelor Nation learned about Jed's previous relationship with Haley and watched his engagement to Hannah come to an end.
As fans may recall, Hannah was the lead of the 15th season of The Bachelorette, which premiered in May 2019 and ended with her accepting a proposal from Jed. In June of that year, People published a report in which Haley claimed she had been dating Jed before he came on the show. Jed even admitted to Hannah he'd told Haley he loved her on a trip.
"I never even got broken up with. Never got any explanation," Haley told E! News. "I could get choked up thinking about it right now."
In May 2020, the Alabama native reflected on her journey. "If you are reading this right now, wondering how to navigate a situation that feels so painful and so not what you wanted, maybe you'll let me tell you what I would've told myself: Hold on. Keep moving. You're going to make it. This ain't it but what's coming is so much better," she wrote in part of a post. "Sometimes you've gotta walk through the shadows to stand in the sun. And trust me, you'll really appreciate the way it feels shining down on you, too."
