'Bachelor' Star Bibiana Julian Slams Peter Kraus, Confirms The Pair Is Not Dating

Bachelor franchise favorites Bibiana Julian and Peter Kraus are not together, Julian confirmed on her Twitter account Friday. Rumors swirled the pair may be more than friends after they were spotted at a Miami Heat game together, but Julian says the encounter wasn't what it seemed.

Julian shot back at an interview Kraus gave the Chicago Tribune on Tuesday. In it, Kraus claimed he knew Julian from a prior event. "So, I know Bibiana from a charity event we did together and told her I was coming down to Miami," he explained. "I was like, 'Hey, I got basketball tickets, you want to go?'"

Julian had a rather different recollection of the events. "'Charity event'—you mean staying at my place for 4 days during the busiest week in Miami and leaving without saying goodbye or thank you?" the reality star tweeted.

She continued, saying she wasn't mad about her seemingly awkward exchange with Kraus. "To be clear, I'm not bitter just irks me when you go out of your way to be nice to someone and they just take advantage!"

On a podcast with former Bachelor stars Ben Higgens and Ashley Iaconetti, Julian clarified she and Kraus spent some time together when she returned from filming. "Him and I actually connected right after I got back from Paradise, so that's kind of, like, when it started off," she said, according to Us Weekly. "We stayed friends and then he was visiting Miami and I was, like, 'Why don't we go to a Heat game?'"

Julian and Kraus have never appeared on a Bachelor franchise season together. Julian has appeared on The Bachelor, Bachelor Winter Games and Bachelor In Paradise. Kraus has appeared on The Bachelorette.

Kraus has also been linked to reality star Nikki Bella. He went on a date with the WWE wrestler, which was filmed for her reality show, Total Bellas. Kraus told the Tribune he couldn't pass up a date with her.

"As far as with Nikki Bella, it was a chance to go on a date with Nikki Bella," he said. "I was like, 'Yeah, I'll take that.' Whether it's on TV or not, I don't care."

Bella spoke of the date with Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon Friday. "It is embarrassing to watch yourself back on dates," she said of the date with Peter. "Like the first one, I literally was so buzzed."
