‘I fell in love with you the first day I saw you, and I saw those big brown eyes,’ he said in an emotion-filled speech.
‘Like, they just make me go crazy. And, like, when I told you I love you, like, I meant every single word.
‘I know you don’t, like, sort of see where your future is at the moment. I think I need just a little bit of certainty.’
Tears: Locky broke down as he told Bella the tragic news
Heartbroken: Bella was left devastated with the blow
Upon hearing the news, Bella looked at the man – who had declared his love for her a day earlier – in complete disbelief.
‘I just don’t know if I can see us working,’ he added.
‘I just don’t get it. Yesterday, you told me you were in love with me,’ she said in shock.
Horrified: Bella swiftly ran away from The Bachelor, who was still tearful as she left him on his own
After he responded by saying he was in love with her, Bella added: ‘Well, why not follow through with a relationship, then?’
He went on: ‘Because I asked you in the pool – what do you see our next year looking like? And you were so… I needed a little bit more.’
Furiously, she responded: ‘You can’t turn this around on me.’
She then stormed off, stating: ‘My God… Can I leave. I’m going.’
Heartbroken: Bella then ran away in tears, still shook over what had happened
When speaking in the car on her way home, the devastated starlet said: ‘He doesn’t love me. If he loved me, he’d wanna be with me.
‘Who does that to someone who tells them they’re in love with them and then…?’
Through tears, she said: ‘I just wanna get outta here.’
