It’s official. The Bachelor’s Matt James and the girl he dumped because of her questionably racist past Rachael Kirkconnell are back together. They’ve been seen together a lot lately but a source says Matt has been hiding the relationship because they still have a lot to work through. The source adds that Matt knows people aren’t gonna be happy so he’s not ready to shout it from the rooftops just yet. Apparently Rachael is though telling the Wall Street Journal Magazine that yes they are working things out and they are together. Matt told WSJ Magazine “I think the best way to put it is that we can have critical conversations about being in this relationship and what I need in a partner — especially if that woman isn’t Black — to understand what comes with me and my life and being Black.”
