After Demi expressed her thoughts, Kristina took to her Instagram Story to describe her relationship with Reality Steve. Per Heavy, she revealed, “Throughout my time on the shows, I would receive messages from [Reality Steve] stating his disapproval of the guys I was dating. He would send me negative messages about them (which left me no room to get to know them on my own). He would send me detailed stories about them from another source, stories that I had no business of knowing.”
The Bachelor in Paradise alum wrote, “I will leave you with this: it’s okay to be wanting updates and tea… but try to find a more reliable source. One that is not degrading to every contestant who graces your TV screen.”
On April 29, Steve said Kristina’s claims are a “perfect example” of why he is promising to no longer have personal relationships with the contestants.
“Due the sensitive nature of what I spoke about with her, I will refrain from commenting any further on what she said,” he noted. “I reached out to her as well after seeing this and personally apologized for how I made her feel.”
As he attempts to move on, Steve said he has been working with a “professional” for a long time and is in “an ongoing process of moving away from who I once was.” He acknowledged he is a private person and recognizes he is not the victim in this scenario.
“It has kept me up at night,” he said. “I’ve tried to show an open mind, and a willingness to have this conversation to hear people’s sides and people I’ve interacted with. That’s the most that I can do, which is to try to say that I want to learn from my past mistakes.”
The media personality feels he has been “actively trying to offer [the women] an additional level of closure” by personally apologizing in private as well as publicly.
“I’ve reached out to let them know I’ve heard them, their feelings are valid, and I’m actively trying to take their experiences and learn from them,” he added, “I’m going to have a better understanding now of the boundaries of not only women from this franchise, but in general. I want to use this as a learning experience and be better moving forward. There is no other choice.”
Demi and Kristina do not appear to have publicly addressed his latest apology.
