BACHELOR In Paradise’s Victoria Paul quit the show as her “secret” boyfriend was exposed by rivals Tammy Ly & Kelsey Weier.
The Nashville native broke down in tears as she sent herself home following a blowout fight with James Bonsall – whom she began to build a relationship with before it quickly crumbled.
Despite their steamy make-outs, it appeared that he had stronger feelings than she did when Victoria couldn’t even remember his name and referred to James as “that guy.”
Her co-stars from Peter Weber’s season, Kelsey and Tammy, began telling the beach that their friend had a “boyfriend back home” and that she’s “using any guy here to elongate her time here on Paradise.”
“Right now, Victoria P.’s unfortunate victim is good, sweet James, and I think he needs to know,” Tammy said in a confessional before confronting her pal about the allegation.
She pulled James aside on the beach to fill him in and he was shocked by the unexpected news.
“I feel like you deserved to know because I want you to find a connection. I’m just looking out for you. I don’t want to see you played,” Tammy said before adding Victoria is a “rose chaser.”
A disappointed James responded: “I like to think I have a good radar for bulls**t, but if this is true, then clearly I’ve been away off.
“At this point, I don’t want to start gossip or start drama, but I feel like I can’t trust my own judgement at this point,” he said as Kelsey also confirmed Tammy’s story.

In a separate scene, Victoria tried to diffuse the situation but Tammy claimed she “had receipts” to prove she was lying.
Victoria began to sob and admitted: “I’m crying because I’m upset that the words I’m giving the people I love are being questioned.
“I could not come into this without an open heart because that would require me to lie to someone else.
“I can’t fake it. I can’t lie. I have to have a conversation with James and let him know my intentions were pure.”
Talking with James, Victoria made the shocking confession: “I walked into this, regardless of what anyone else may say, 100 percent open.
“I think the best thing for me to do is to take all of me, imperfect me, growing me, and walk away from this. I hope that you walk away from this with the love of your life.
“There are a lot of amazing girls here. Even Kelsey and Tammy – they are better than this.”
VICTORIA ‘CONFIRMS’ BOYFRIEND RUMORS
She then seemingly confirmed to having a boyfriend as she went back to Nashville, adding: “I don’t need to search to find something that I already have at home.”
The controversial contestant then got into a waiting SUV and left Bachelor In Paradise in tears.
James appeared disappointed but appreciative he appeared to dodge that situation and went on to build a spark with Demi Burnett – whom he gave his rose to on tonight’s episode.
Fans slammed Victoria for “lying” about her relationship status while “using the show” for fame.
“Looks like Victoria P’s caught red-handed on using The Bachelor franchise to get herself & her country music boyfriend more famous. Well… that backfired…” one person fired off.
Another critic said: “Victoria P sucks. SHE needs to stay calm not James.”
“As a healthcare worker from Louisiana, Victoria P does not represent who we are. Classless and manipulative,” a Twitter user scathed.
A fourth said: “I meannnn women supporting women and all but Victoria P is the devil.”
“If ya’ll want a LAUGH I would suggest checking out Victoria P’s latest Instagram post. Truly sad how delusional this woman is @ToriaPaul. Pretending to be the victim. I hope you get a new therapist girl,” a viewer wrote.
