“Lauren went with some friends and did some things that made Ben upset,” the source reveals to the website, “It got way too out of hand and Ben got upset at how much time she was spending with friends, and not him.”
Ben Higgins chose Lauren Bushnell over JoJo Fletcher in the Season 20 of The Bachelor. Bushnell was affected when she learned that during the Fantasy Suite Date night, Higgins had said, “I Love You” to both the ladies.
