The Bachelor’s Rachael Kirkconnell smiles in a green swimsuit after she catches Matt James ‘talking to another woman’

THE Bachelor's Rachael Kirkconell smiled in a green swimsuit after she caught Matt James "talking to another woman".

The 24-year-old ignored the drama with her ex as she soaked up the sun on Sunday.

Rachael looked amazing in a green swimsuit, sharing a picture of her with closed eyes and a ponytail.

She captioned the pic on her Instagram: "Suit from today is @koanaswim"

This comes days after Rachel was left "heartbroken" and feeling "played" after learning Bachelor Matt James had been talking to other woman.

The Georgia native was spotted exiting Matt's New York City apartment, signaling the broken-up couple had gotten back together.

An insider told Us Weekly that the couple had a "miscommunication," and Matt only wanted to be "friends" during the NYC reunion, while Rachael wanted to rekindle their romance.

But a source told The Sun: "They were getting back together, that’s why she visited him, 100% getting back together. There was no misunderstanding.

"He flew her out, she stayed with him. But once again he played her. And now he’s just deflecting because he got caught talking to other women."

The insider adds: "She’s heartbroken about it."

Rachael and Matt's relationship has been dramatic from the start.

While Rachael received Matt's final rose on this season’s finale, the duo didn't last.

Matt broke up with her after she was accused of racist behavior for attending an Antebellum party in 2018, and "liking" photos of friends posing with Confederate flags.

But weeks later, Rachael flew from her native Georgia to New York to work things out with her ex.

A source revealed to The Sun: "Rachael is in New York City with Matt right now, they're working on their relationship and seeing if it's salvageable.

“They still have a lot of work to do, but they are figuring out things together instead of apart over text."

Matt told Rachael he could not "imagine his life without” her and even said he knew she was his "future wife and mother of his children” on the finale - which was filmed in November 2020.

After the initial split, Rachael apologized numerous times for her past actions, and shared resources to help the Black community.

Amid Rachael's racism scandal, host Chris Harrison "stepped away" from the franchise after suggesting that Rachael's behavior was okay in 2018, but not in 2021 and for saying he's not the "woke police."

Former leads Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe will replace Chris, 49, as hosts of The Bachelorette next season.

Katie Thurston's season will premiere in June on ABC.
