BACHELOR beauty Brittany Galvin’s ex exclusively told The Sun that the reality contestant “takes advantage” of wealthy men “emotionally and financially” after she denied being an escort.
Real estate investor Adam Ibrahim, 28, claimed the escort rumors surrounding the Chicago-based model are neither “true nor untrue” as he opened up about their whirlwind romance that ended right before she went on the show.

As he was in town to look into purchasing an industrial building, he met the brunette bombshell as she worked as a bottle service girl at nightclub, Bounce.
Adam exclusively told The Sun: “A friend of mine had introduced us. We hit it off, I went back to Miami, and a few months later she visited me in LA.
“She asked me to buy her a flight. I joked that if she thought it was worth it to see me she would get her own flight.
“But she showed up, which seemed like a good sign. I later found out that she got some other guy to buy the flight.”

The businessman said their one weekend ended up turning into “three weeks straight of us living together and driving across the country.”
“We had a crazy physical connection – our friends accused us of being in love and told us we were acting weird, which was unusual for both of us.
“She never really asked me for anything, so I assumed her intentions were good,” Adam added.
However, he said over the course of the next few months of dating, he realized she was a “selfish person” in a “confused place” through a combination of “her own admonitions and actions.”

The New York native explained: “She was unlikely to be there for me in any substantial way, so I broke things off several times, the last time being shortly before she left to film the show.
“Each time, she found her way back through some pretty odd and manipulative means. I’m not sure what her motives were for doing this.”
He continued: “Brittany is a person who, in from my experience, seems to be dealing with a lot of darkness, confusion and desire both within and outside of herself.
“As an attractive girl and an opportunist, this has at times manifested in her taking advantage of people emotionally and or financially.

“I know a few guys who have felt confused and short-changed (emotionally and/or financially) in their dealings with her, including myself (fortunately only emotionally, though she does still have my favorite t-shirt) and might describe her through the use of certain expletives.”
In regards to the specific escort rumors that were brought up this week on The Bachelor, Adam said the bottom line is that Brittany is “most likely not an escort,” but pointed out there would be “nothing wrong with it” if she was.
However, he went on to say: “That being said, whether escort or esquire, the key to being happy and good at what you do is to make sure you are always giving as much as you are getting in return.
“If Brittany is guilty of anything, it is of giving too little and taking too much from those around her. And I’d bet that a lot of the people throwing stones have been guilty of the same thing once or twice.”

Adam continued: “Ultimately, I found that she is dealing with a lot of confusion and selfishness, is trying to find her way in the world, and has unfortunately burned some people in the process.
“She has certainly hurt people emotionally, others perhaps financially, and at the end of the day, people tend to talk.
“So the rumors that you have heard are likely neither truth nor fiction, but rather a distorted retelling of some of her interactions with others that have left them feeling high and dry in one way or another.”
Concluding their emotional journey, Adam confessed: “With the things that have been said about Brittany- they are neither completely true nor completely without merit.

“And the truth lies somewhere between the harsh admonitions from people that she has hurt and her own sense of denial and victimhood that is apparent in her desire for attention and support.”
Adam optimistically added that he “hopes” Brittany’s intentions are “genuine” as she “finds a way to become the person that she always promised to be.”
However, as he said he doesn’t watch reality TV, he cannot say for certain if that is happening with his ex on this season of The Bachelor.
A rep for Brittany did not respond to The Sun’s request for comment.

The Sun also exclusively revealed that another one of Brittany’s ex’s was “manipulated” into paying for a $15,000 trip to Dubai and South Africa in December – weeks after she returned from filming The Bachelor.
As the rumors spread around the group of women, Brittany broke down in tears and vehemently denied she has ever been an escort.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8pm EST on ABC.
