Several ex-girlfriends of the most controversial Bachelor in history have labelled him a 'despicable' cheat who picks up younger women on Instagram - and one even claims he lied about her miscarriage on the show to curry favor with his new fiancee.
On the show, Luyendyk spoke about his previous experiences on the Bachelor franchise. In 2012 he placed as first runner-up on the Bachelorette season 8, narrowly missing out on being selected as Emily Maynard's fiance.
But in a rare story about his other relationships off-camera, he told the story of an ex who had a miscarriage and then left him.
Arie told Lauren Burnham of the difficult break up seven years ago.
He claims his then girlfriend Cassie Harshman told him over the phone that she had suffered a miscarriage, adding, 'When you come home, I won’t be here.'
But in an interview with Life and Style, she denied this was the case.
'He was with me in the doctor's office when we found out about the miscarriage," said Harshman.
'It didn't happen at all the way he portrayed it. At all! The miscarriage was the beginning of the end but it was a long breakup,' she explained.
'It wasn’t his story to tell. It’s so disrespectful. It’s very painful to see one of the worst experiences of my life played out on TV,' she added.
