The Bachelor: The truth behind Bella Varelis' cocktail party meltdown

Shocking details have emerged about Bella Varelis' bitter argument with Irena Srbinovska on Thursday night's episode of The Bachelor.

But Daily Mail Australia can reveal that Bella wasn't just upset over Irena's supposed dishonesty - she also felt let down because she had been under the impression she was the only girl Locky was speaking to privately.

The Bachelor went into lockdown for about three and a half months, from mid-March until the first week of July, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

During this time, Locky went on Zoom 'group dates' with the contestants as well as single dates, but also exchanged numbers with the women so they could stay in touch when the cameras weren't rolling. 

Bella was under the impression that Locky was only having 'lengthy' phone and SMS chats with her, when he was in fact having similar contact with several girls.

'Bella was convinced that she was the only one who spoke to Locky at length during the filming break,' a source told Daily Mail Australia.

'So the real reason they fell out was that Bella couldn't accept the fact that Irena had also formed a close connection with Locky during lockdown.

'She was furious when she found out multiple girls were talking to Locky on a daily basis - but she took it out on Irena because they were so close.'
