Who is the ex Michelle mentioned on The Bachelorette season 18?

Following the November 16th episode of The Bachelorette season 18, many fans of the show took to Twitter in regard to Michelle’s ex.

One person Tweeted that Michelle’s ex had made her that unhappy she was “physically sick” and others wrote that the man had left her “when she was sick“.

Another person Tweeted in relation to Michelle’s comments: “While I never got sick like that I relate to how Michelle was treated. Everything was about him, I was expected to change to be what he wanted and because I wanted to make it work I tried to and lost myself in the process“.

It’s currently unconfirmed who the ex is that Michelle was referring to. She detailed on The Bachelor After The Final Rose that she “wasn’t OK” following her split from Matt James. However, she also has said of her relationship prior to Matt that she stayed in an unhealthy relationship much longer than she should have, so it could have been either of her long-term relationships.
