“He has every right to do whatever he wants because we were just, you know, hanging out, seeing where it goes. And I am completely fine with that,” Brown, 24, admitted on the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast on Wednesday. ”It was a little confusing but, um, he can do whatever he wants to and I know that I can too. And I am going to continue going onward and upward and I just think that I’ve made it very clear.”
When co-host and fellow former "Bachelorette" pointed out that she had a "beef" with Cameron, 26, dating the supermodel so flagrantly, Brown concurred that it hurt.
“I think that’s my beef with it too. And the thing is … We are not dating-dating, at all, we hung out, but we also had conversations of both like knowing that there’s still something there," Brown lamented. "And when you are in the public eye, you do just have to be respectful of each other. Yeah, I wish I would’ve got a little bit more than two days. But, you know, it is OK.”
As previously reported, Cameron stepped out with Hadid, 24, in New York City just days after spending the night with Brown in Los Angeles.
Still, Brown says everything is for the best.
“I love the woman that I’ve become. If I would have changed anything, I might not be who I am today,” the former pageant queen told Us Weekly.
“Anytime you can succeed in it, there’s some adversity. It just makes you the best version of yourself," she said. "I think through weakness you become stronger … and I definitely think that I’ve done that, and I really like that girl that I’ve become.”
