AceShowbiz - Ashley Iaconetti has made it clear that there is nothing romantic between her and newly-single Ben Higgins. After the two were spotted attending a concert together in Los Angeles on Saturday, May 20, Iaconetti insists her relationship with Higgins is purely platonic.
"Totally just friends!" "The Bachelor" alum, who competed for Chris Soules' heart on the dating show's season 19, tells Us Weekly. Iaconetti explains, "We went with our podcast manager at iHeart and other friends."
As previously reported, Higgins sparked rumors he's moved on from Lauren Bushnell after he attended the concert with Iaconetti. The two allegedly went to the concert at the Greek Theater with people from iHeart Radio. They're hanging out because they're launching a radio podcast together.
Higgins was engaged to Bushnell at the end of his "Bachelor" season last year. They confirmed their separation in a statement last week. "It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision to go our separate ways," they said.
"We feel fortunate for the time we had together, and will remain friends with much love and respect for one another," they added. "We wish nothing but the best for each other, and ask for your support and understanding at this time."
