The Bachelorette stars Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski appeared on Good Morning America Wednesday to shoot down rumors Swiderski cheated on his new fiancÃ©. According to a report by Us Weekly, Ed Swiderski was allegedly getting some on the side from 24-year-old Betheny Steffen and 29-year-old Lindsey Johnson while wooing Jillian Harris on The Bachelorette.
SwiderskiÂ supposedly slept with his former girlfriend, Lindsey Johnson, only days after proposing to Harris on The Bachelorette, according to the tabloid. Harrisâ€™ new fiancÃ© also reportedly tried to lure another former girlfriend, Betheny Steffen, back into his bed as well â€“ texting her with romantic offers involving â€œbeer and condoms.â€
â€œItâ€™s not nice to hear the person you care about is stepping out with other girls,â€ Steffen told Us Weekly. Swiderskiâ€™s other reported â€˜girlfriendâ€™ Lindsey Johnson told the magazine she felt â€œgross, used and completely violatedâ€ when she learned he was seeing other women. â€œHe was going to propose to me by the end of the year,â€ Johnson told Us. â€œHe used to say we would have the most beautiful kids.â€
â€œItâ€™s actually not true at all,â€ Swiderski said in an appearance with Jillian Harris on Good Morning America. â€œWeâ€™re clearly being targeted because weâ€™re happyâ€¦ This is nonsense. I feel like Iâ€™m in high school.â€ Swiderski says the rumors he cheated on Harris are â€œtotally inaccurate.â€
Standing by her man, Harris said the couple is still engaged and she is confident â€œEd is not deceiving me.â€ Adding that this is â€œthe last time Iâ€™m talking about this,â€ Harris stated she and Swiderski are â€œcompletely in love.â€
Swiderski and Harris say they plan to marry in Canada sometime in the next year or so.
