The Bachelorette runner-up Tyler Cameron just returned to New York City after taking his first weekend trip with Gigi Hadid and her friends upstate. But his very public romance with Hadid has come at a cost: his other very public romance with The Bachelorette's Hannah Brown. Brown spoke to Extra about the two's relationship status now, roughly three weeks after they had their post-show date at Brown's Los Angeles home. Cameron spent the night with her then.
She and Tyler C. are not talking now. “I think he’s been so busy. I’ve been so busy," she started. "I’m focusing on what’s next for me and trying to get my bearings around this new city that I’m living in. I wish him well. And I know that he does the same for me.” (Brown just moved to Los Angeles.)
On August 5, a source told E! essentially the same thing: It was not going to work out between the two because of distance. "Tyler saw Hannah in LA and they had a good night and a good talk," the source explained. "But it's probably not going to amount to much right now. She moved to LA and he doesn't live there." That source said they planned to still talk…which didn't happen in reality. "They agreed to keep talking, but that's it for now. It's geographically challenging."
Brown recently wrote on her Instagram about how it has been a hard transition for her since The Bachelorette ended. She said:
Honest policy: I’m struggling. Life is so different. Since last August, I’ve been a pageant queen, a bachelor contestant, and the Bachelorette. I’ve been in love with multiple people, I got engaged, I broke off an engagement, and I shared it all with millions of people. My faith has been questioned by thousands who don’t know my heart, and my transparency with my decisions has labeled me promiscuous. Simultaneously, I’ve become a role model for young women and started bigger conversations around faith, and sex. // I’m living on my own for the first time and shuffling through this life of next steps with press, media, and opportunities galore.
I miss my friends and family who have watched my life explode. I feel guilty because I don’t have the time or emotional capacity to fill each of them in on my life right now. I can’t keep up with the people who matter most, because I can barely keep up with my own life right now. // I am not complaining about this past year of adventures. The woman who has emerged would shock the mirror-image young girl from a year ago. I have so many blessings to be thankful for. However it’s uncharted territory for me, and it’s been hard to really process what the heck is going on. // Maybe I needed write this out to remind myself I’m human and it’s okay to be overwhelmed. And maybe, I just needed to remind you guys too. Life is beautiful, but wild. I think it’s okay to be strong-to know you’re strong-but to still feel weak simultaneously. I believe that’s when the magic happens. My spirit has opportunity to grow and blossom from this place. Healing and restoration can happen. I can rest knowing that My Savior has compassion and wants to help and love me through this journey. I’ve just got to let Him. I don’t know if I have been lately— but I am now because honestly, I think I would give out if I didn’t. So yeah, I’m not going to struggle to disguise my weakness— I’m just gonna give over the keys to my main man Jesus and let him bless me through this ride. Isaiah 54:10
