Jesse Kovacs — who was called a "player" by former fling Elizabeth Kitt on The Bachelor Pad finale — claims she is now trashing him on the Internet.
Apparently she has a blog on her fan page that claims to be written by a random fan.
Kovacs, 28, tells UsMagazine.com it is written by Kitt, 30, and one of her pals — and the nasty posts (one of which referred to him as a "douche bag") are hurting his professional career.
"Friends were calling me all day telling me that they were reading things about me online that Elizabeth had been saying," says Kovacs, who runs the California-based Kovacs Brothers Wine and is the author of The Young and the Thirsty: 25 California Wines for the New School Drinker. "Honestly, she is entitled to say whatever she wants about herself, just as long as she doesn't try to attack my character. When she starts talking about my personal life, that's where I draw the line."
She blasted him in a recent RadarOnlne interview and, he claims, has continued to slam him on her fan site.
"I am absolutely 100 percent positive that it is her and her best friend," he tells Us. "I think it's pretty unfortunate that she is resorting to such measures to promote herself and put me down by writing a blog, acting as if it is some random fan in the middle of America."
How did things get so ugly?
Kovacs and Kitt continued to be romantic after they were voted off the show. On the show's finale, she said they ended things because he "wanted a casual relationship, and I don't do casual relationships."
He tells Us he never misled her.
"When we got out of the house, it was just one of those things where we realized that it wasn't going to work out," he tells Us. "But when she started watching the show, that's when she kind of flipped out on me and saw the things that were said in interviews. She completely lost her mind!" True, he says he does "get attention" from women, but that doesn't make him a bad guy.
"I know a lot of personal things about Elizabeth that she would never want to be public knowledge," he tells Us. "I would never stoop to that level, and I would never do that to her."
