BACHELOR contestant Bri Springs confirmed her relationship status after being spotted getting cozy with Greg Grippo as they were “DENIED” entrance into the club.
The Bachelorette contestant was pictured with Matt James’ ex just days after his emotional breakup with Katie Thurston aired which caused shocked fans to label him a “gaslighter.”
Over the weekend, photos surfaced of Greg, 28, and Bri, 24, out for a night on the town at New York City’s Noir.
In one picture, obtained by Instagram fan account, BachelorNation.Scoop, Greg and Bri are seen closely together in line to get into a club.
They appeared annoyed – with Greg even having a stressed facial expression – as the bouncer allegedly denied them entry.
An eye witness who was present claimed: “Guess fame hasn’t hit them yet, they couldn’t get in.”
One more picture showed Bri – who was wearing an oversized white button-down as a dress – and Greg walking away closely together after they were rejected entry into Noir.
According to the bystander, Greg “didn’t speak” at all while Bri said the pair were “trying to be discrete.”
Bachelor Nation quickly speculated the pair was dating after the photos surfaced.
However, Bri shared an Instagram Story that read “current relationship status.”

In the picture, she was holding hands with a man who was NOT Greg.
She appeared to be at a wedding in the snap as she grabbed onto the unidentified man – who was wearing a sharp blue suit – next to her.
Many fans were relieved by the news, as she was flooded with comments about “staying away” from Greg after he displayed “toxic” behavior on last week’s episode.
“Imagine her wanting to hang out with someone who has multiple exes claiming that he emotionally abused them? Wooooof Bri,” one person wrote.
Another said: “She should stay far away from that perpetually confused-looking man.”
GREG'S 'BREAKING POINT'
“Bri deserves the world, not an emotional manipulator,” someone else insisted.
The brunette beauty – who works at a tech company – was on Matt James’ season of The Bachelor earlier this year but was eliminated after hometown dates.
While Greg was an early fan-favorite on Katie's Bachelorette season before he started a blowout fight between the couple which ended in his exit.
On Monday night’s drama-filled hometown episode, Greg admitted to reaching his “breaking point” during a heated fight between his ex.
The former contestant began to sob in an emotional scene as he told Katie: “I had no idea I was going to fall in love with you but I did.
“I have never been this vulnerable in my life with anyone. I won’t get down on one knee twice, it’s a one-deal thing for me and I know I won’t have any regrets at the end of this.”
However, Katie simply responded: “I just love looking at you.”
Greg appeared very upset with the short answer, which led Katie to add: “I told your family our connection is so strong and I believe in us. You know how I feel about you though, right?”
“I try to,” Greg reacted with a disappointing look.
'WHAT THE F**K JUST HAPPENED?'
The couple then have a long argument over Greg being unhappy, which Katie claims is “clear” to her that he is before arguing for several minutes more.
She ended up leaving their one-on-one disappointed and Greg is left asking himself “what the f**k just happened?”
The next morning, Greg visited Katie’s hotel room and admitted it “scared the hell out of him” that she had “zero reaction” to his confession of falling in love with her.
Greg then raised his voice and stated: “For you to stand in that hallway and tell me that I’m the one giving up on us hurt me so badly.
“I’ve never given up on us. There’s obviously a disconnect here. As much as it hurts me, I’ve reached my breaking point with this. I gave you everything.”
Katie appeared distraught and asked: “I can’t even comprehend what you’re saying right now. Are you done?”
“Yes. That’s exactly what I’m saying. It was never about a rose, all I was asking for is Katie. I love everything about you and really saw you as my girl,” Greg assured her.
The New Yorker then stormed out of Katie’s hotel room – causing her to chase him down in tears.
Once she finds him huddled over in a chair, he told her: “All I know is I deserve more than what I’ve been given on your side.”
“Well I’m not happy here anymore. I’m not. I’m done here,” Greg responded before storming off set – leaving Katie crying on the floor alone.
