Rachel Lindsay has confirmed she had beef with Vanessa Grimaldi during Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor.
"Vanessa told me that I used 'aggressive' tones with her, and I was very upset by that," Lindsay tells Entertainment Tonight.
"There are so many stereotypes placed on African-American women." Lindsay adds that Grimaldi also called her a “bully,” which led her to ask producers to keep them apart.
"This was an assassination on my character," she explains. "After I've faced uphill battles for my entire life and worked to prove myself in my career."
Fellow Bachelor Nation member Danielle Lombard claimed during a Reddit AMA this week that “Vanessa called Rachel something that was extremely derogatory.”
