“Clare Crawley tried to warn bachelor nation about Matt James don’t forget,” the message that Clare shared read.
“I knew something was off with that man I was mad he was the bachelor… He let the fame get into him,” the reply said.

Matt eventually went on to land the lead role but before he even graced a TV screen, Clare accused him of being driven by fame.
He also created an account on the celebrity video platform Cameo – where he charged fans $19 for each personalized message – though the page is no longer active.
At the time, despite not yet being on TV, the “reality star” added he is known for being on The Bachelor on his Cameo page bio.
Clare caught wind of her contestant’s fame-grabbing antics and slammed the New Yorker for being in it for the “wrong reasons.”

She fired off on Twitter: “If you are doing interviews and creating Cameo accounts before you are even on my season…
“You are in it for the wrong reasons… #dontwasteyourtime.”
In another tweet, she warned: “Respect the opportunity you’ve been given. Respect the rules. Respect me. @BacheloretteABC.”
This week, Matt was with his ex, Rachael, 24, in NYC as they planned to get back together before she left “heartbroken,” a source exclusively told The Sun.
The informant said: ”They were getting back together, that’s why she visited him, 100% getting back together. There was no misunderstanding.

“He flew her out, she stayed with him. But once again he played her. And now he’s just deflecting because he got caught talking to other women.”
The insider added: “She’s heartbroken about it.”
Yesterday, Matt’s fling Grace claimed he invited her to Miami just DAYS before meeting his ex Rachael.
Grace said in an interview with blogger Reality Steve that Matt had asked her to visit him in Miami just two days before he invited Rachael to New York City.
The brunette beauty said James texted her “out of the blue,” about popping by Miami, but she declined the invitation saying she was tired.

She went on: “It just didn’t sit right with me. I just felt like Rachael was so in love with him and for him to be trying to contact me and hang out with me.
“Someone he’s had past romantic relationships with – two days prior in Miami… I felt like I had to say something for Rachael’s sake.”
She added, “Rachael is the real victim here.”
