All Bachelor Nation is talking about is Abigail Heringer and Dale Moss. Rumors are swirling that Dale Moss cheated on former girlfriend Clare Crawley with the brunette Bachelor in Paradise star.

Fans have yet to learn why Clare and Dale broke up, but we assume it has something to do with the mounting stress that Clare is currently dealing with. The former Bachelorette posted on Instagram, opening up about her recovery from a breast implant removal surgery and the tragic news that her mother had to be put into a hospice.

She said, “I’m choosing not to speak right now on the details of my relationship, because at the end of the day anyone can put on an ACT or throw words together to form any narrative they want,” the former Bachelorette said on Instagram. “What I will speak on is emotionally and physically I’m going through a lot with healing from my recent [breast implant removal] surgery still, and my mother being placed on hospice care now.”

The reality TV star continued her post and said, “So my energy is focused on grieving, healing, and being present at home here in Sacramento while trying to share and help others going through similar life experiences as I’m sharing today. I am just thankful for the people in my life who offer genuine unconditional love with no personal gain, and stand by me through thick and thin. ESPECIALLY WHEN THE CAMERAS ARE OFF with no accolades. Actions speak for themselves.”

Bachelor Nation was confused about Clare’s post in the beginning, until they saw that Clare had tagged Abigail Heringer! (Abigail has since untagged herself from the post).

Rumors about a past fling between Dale Moss and Abigail Heringer started in late September when an anonymous tip was sent to DeuxMoi. The tip said, “A ‘Bachelor’ favorite hooked up with a Bachelor Nation recent ‘winner’ who ‘may or may not have been’ on a break earlier this year. One of them is on ‘Paradise’ right now but producers won’t mess up her good girl edit.”

That tip, coupled with Clare’s post, makes fans think that Dale cheated on Clare with Abigail when they were taking a break. According to sources, Dale and Abigail met in New York City when a group of Bachelor Nation alumni were playing flag football.

Sources told Us Weekly that Dale and Abigail hooked up way before Dale’s time on Bachelor in Paradise, and that the Oregon native thought that Clare and Dale weren’t serious anymore.

Those close to Dale Moss have been quick to squash the cheating rumors. They said “they met once at flag football in New York City that a bunch of Bachelor people attended. Everyone went to a bar after, they did not sleep together. He’s never cheated on Clare,” the source said. “They never kissed or had sex. Dale is friends with Abigail.”

The source went on to say that Dale went to Clare’s house last Tuesday to be with her and her mother.

Clare has not had the best luck when it comes to finding love on a Bachelor show. Before she was the leading lady on The Bachelorette, Clare spent some time on The Bachelor fighting for the heart of Juan Pablo Galavis.

Their breakup during the finale went down in Bachelor Nation history as one of the nastiest splits ever. And it mostly had to do with Clare’s epic takedown of Juan.

After The Bachelor, Clare tried her luck on Bachelor in Paradise. She was a part of the show for Seasons 1 and 2, but sadly left both times without a partner.

Fans of the former Bachelorette thought that her relationship with Dale Moss would last, but this cheating twist is something that we didn’t see coming.

We’ll never forget what Clare said to Juan during the finale. “I thought I knew what kind of man you were,” she told him. “I lost respect for you. What you just made me go through? I would never want my children having a father like you.”
