In the new issue of Us Weekly (on newsstands now), Bachelorette host Chris Harrison says he didn't ask Jillian Harris if she believed her fiance Ed Swiderski cheated during a recent phone conversation.

"I didn't ask her because I don't want to know," he tells Us Weekly.

Us Weekly first reported last week that two women claim they had flings with Swiderski, 30, while he was with Harris. On June 4 – eight days after Swiderski popped the question to Harris on The Bachelorette finale – Lindsey Johnson tells Us Weekly she even slept with the Chicago Microsoft consultant. A day later, another woman, Bethany Steffen, tells Us Weekly Swiderski texted her to "bring beer and condoms" over to his place.

Now, contestant Wes Hayden tells the new Us Weekly that Swiderski talked about having a girlfriend while shooting the ABC reality show. "Dave [Good] and I both remember Ed saying he had a girlfriend," says Hayden. "But we are not the kind who are going to run our mouths."

Despite photographic evidence and racy emails and texts that Swiderski sent to the two other women, Harris told Harrison of Swiderski, "'I still love him more than any man I ever have in my life.'"
