OK! can exclusively reveal that The Bachelorette’s Rhys Chilton, 29, has been hiding a big secret – he is still a married man! His estranged wife Kelsi, 24, who is based in the USA, has spoken in detail to OK! about the specifics regarding their hasty wedding in 2014, and the short time they spent living together as husband and wife.

‘He only cares about himself… and should not be dating that beautiful girl Georgia [Love],’ she tells OK!.


Speaking of the relationship, Kelsi tells OK! that it was turbulent, and that when she returned home to the US from Brisbane mere months after marrying, there was a major ongoing dispute between the couple.

It wasn’t until earlier this year that Kelsi was approached by Rhys to formalise their separation, and she says that she had ‘no clue’ that he would shortly begin filming The Bachelorette.

Watching the show with her friends, Kelsi admits is bringing back memories.

‘Rhys is still the selfish guy that made me feel miserable,’ says Kelsi of watching Rhys on the show. ‘Georgia doesn’t deserve that and no woman does.’


The full story appears in OK! out today.

Rhys has offered a statement on the relationship via Network Ten.

‘Kelsi and I were in love and got married but unfortunately for us it didn’t work out. We have been separated for over two years and our divorce is currently being finalised. I’ve not dated since Kelsi and The Bachelorette Australia was an opportunity, albeit unorthodox, to see if I was ready to meet somebody. I have explained my reason to Georgia for being here and I feel she understands. Kelsi is a great girl and I’ve always wanted to see her happy in life.’
