Does Ben Higgins want JoJo Fletcher back? That’s one of the claims coming from the tabloids. Gossip Cop investigated, however, and now we can reveal what’s real and what’s rumor.

“As his relationship with fiancée Lauren Bushnell falls apart, Ben Higgins’ feelings for Bachelorette JoJo grow stronger,” writes In Touch. According to the magazine, the former “Bachelor” star’s engagement has “completely crumbled in recent months — and his feelings for JoJo are to blame.” A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “Ben thinks he may have picked the wrong woman.”

“Every time he has a fight with Lauren, his mind wanders back to JoJo,” continues the supposed source. “He questions whether he would have been happier engaged to her.” The alleged tipster goes on to say watching Fletcher on “The Bachelorette” has only helped Higgins realize “he’s still very much in love with JoJo.”

Complicating matters, claims the outlet, is that Bushnell is still upset Higgins told Fletcher he loved her, and now questions whether he still does. “Her insecurity has always been a source of tension,” alleges the snitch. “It’s driven a wedge between them, and it’s gotten to the point where their relationship is hanging on by a thread.”

Of course, In Touch conveniently ends its piecing by noting that Higgins “blew his chance” with Fletcher. Its “insider” states, “I can promise you, she will never get back together with him — ever.” Which is another way of saying that even though the tabloid knows the two won’t be reuniting, it decided to throw the sensational premise out there anyway.

And far from being fixated on Fletcher, Higgins seems to be spending most of his time gushing about Bushnell on social media. And while it’s “real” that they may not go the distance, as most “Bachelor” romances don’t, his past TV relationship with Fletcher isn’t torpedoing the romance. This is just In Touch’s attempt at keeping the love triangle going, particularly as Fletcher’s own journey on “The Bachelorette” currently airs.

So, does Higgins really want Fletcher back? You can squarely file this one under “untrue rumor.”
