Just one week after announcing her split from Bachelor fiancé Ben Flajnik, model Courtney Robertson has been caught kissing race car driver Arie Luyendyk, the man Emily Maynard turned down on the season finale of The Bachelorette.
People magazine reports that the 29-year-old beauty brought Luyendyk to Quiessence Restaurant in Phoenix on Thursday – the same place she brought Flajnik during their televised hometown date. After the meal was through, Robertson leaned in for a kiss.
That same evening, Robertson tweeted a photo of two wine glasses on a romantically set table with the caption "Beautiful night…#RedWineImFine." TMZ first posted photos from the lip-locking date, and Bachelor Ben seemed quite shocked. “Little surprised my man,” the reality star responded on Twitter to a comment from Reality Steve about the alleged new relationship.
Luyendyk and Flajnik got to know each other in August when the two attended an IndyCar event in Sonoma, California, where Flajnik – a winemaker – resides. “[Arie] is a solid dude who has his head on straight,” Flajnik, 30, said at the time. “I can see why everyone liked him on the show.”
Revealing their decision to break off the engagement, Courtney and Ben said in a join statement, “Thank you all so much for the kind words and for believing in us. We did too, and tried our best! I really appreciate all the love and support.”
