Stanton, who appeared on season 20 of The Bachelor and seasons 3 and 4 of Bachelor in Paradise, was in Vegas for a bachelorette party with friends, including fellow Bachelor contestant Lauren Bushnell.

While the former ABC star has yet to publicly comment on her arrest, she shared a photo of herself and Jacobs on a private jet on her Instagram Story on Tuesday, September 11. Stanton also shared pics from her Vegas getaway earlier this week.

“All 3 of us have had Bachelorette parties but only one of us is actually getting married… 🤷🏼‍♀️😂 #pregamingpavlis,” the reality star, who shares two young daughters with her ex-husband, Nick Buonfiglio, captioned a photo with the bride-to-be and 28-year-old Bushnell on Sunday, September 9.

Two months ago, Stanton opened up exclusively to Us Weekly about her relationship with Jacobs, revealing that the twosome met on Instagram.

“We don’t really have a great story,” she explained to Us in July, admitting he slid into her DMs: “I wish we had a more exciting story. We were saying that we should just say we met at the dog park or something. …  I guess it’s pretty normal these days. It just is funny to say.”

Stanton was previously engaged to fellow Bachelor in Paradise season 3 star Josh Murray and briefly dated Bachelor in Paradise season 4 star Robby Hayes.

Us Weekly has reached out to Stanton for a comment.
