“Bachelor” creator Mike Fleiss and Laura Kaeppeler say they “regret” their decision to get a divorce following a nasty back-and-forth that played out in the public eye.
Kaeppeler, 31, and Fleiss, 55, opened up on Twitter over the weekend about why they are trying to make their relationship work more than three months after they settled their divorce.
“There was an emotionally charged incident in which we fought over a phone and both exhibited immature and irresponsible behavior,” Kaeppeler explained on Sunday. “This situation led to making rash decisions we both regret…”
This past summer, Kaeppeler accused Fleiss of domestic violence when the TV director allegedly attacked her while the couple was vacationing in Hawaii.
However, the former Miss America now claims that reports Fleiss “intentionally” tried to hurt her were “untrue.”
She said in two separate tweets, “We both take full responsibility for our actions and have worked very hard to repair the damage to our relationship and family…and are working together with the help of a marriage counselor to rebuild what we lost.”
In July, Page Six obtained a police report via The Blast that showed Kaeppeler filed a temporary domestic restraining order against Fleiss because he allegedly “demanded” she get an abortion and “threatened” to end their marriage if she didn’t comply.
Later that month, Kaeppeler, who was 11 weeks pregnant at the time, dropped the restraining order. She was granted $10 million in their settlement and joint custody of the couple’s 4-year-old son Ben.
On Sunday, Fleiss retweeted Kaeppeler’s statements and added, “Happy to report that @FleissLaura and I have reconciled. I love my wife and am grateful for this opportunity to work on our marriage… Thanks for the support, #BachelorNation!”
