Grace said in an interview with blogger Reality Steve Matt had asked her to visit him in Miami just two days before he invited Rachael to New York City.

She said: James texted her "out of the blue," about popping by Miami, but she declined the invitation saying she was tired.

Grace went on: "It just didn't sit right with me. I just felt like Rachael was so in love with him and for him to be trying to contact me and hang out with me – someone he's had past romantic relationships with – two days prior in Miami… I felt like I had to say something for Rachael's sake."

She added, "Rachael is the real victim here."

A source also told People: "Rachael loves Matt, but she feels like she was

"She knows he does love her. She knows he's not a bad guy, but he's not in a place to be in a relationship." 

The insider added Rachael was prepared to go "all-in."

However the controversial Bachelor contestant feels James had "broken her trust," and "she doesn't know if she'll ever be able to trust him again."

Yesterday an insider told Us Weekly the former couple had a "miscommunication," during their New York City reunion.

Matt relayed he only wanted to be "friends" while Rachael wanted to rekindle their romance.

But a source told The Sun: "They were getting back together, that’s why she visited him, 100% getting back together. There was no misunderstanding.

"He flew her out, she stayed with him. But once again he played her. And now he’s just deflecting because he got caught talking to other women."

The insider adds: "She’s heartbroken about it."

Rachael received Matt's final rose on this season’s finale, but the duo didn't last.

Matt broke up with her after she was accused of racist behavior for attending an Antebellum party in 2018, and "liking" photos of friends posing with Confederate flags.

A source revealed to The Sun: "Rachael is in New York City with Matt right now, they're working on their relationship and seeing if it's salvageable. They still have a lot of work to do, but they are figuring out things together instead of apart over text."
