EXCLUSIVE Did The Bachelorette’s Ty Brown cheat on wife Lindsey Grant?

Ty Brown

In the second episode of The Bachelorette 31-year-old Ty Brown had a heart-to-heart talk with Ali Fedotowsky during which he told her he had been married before. During his ‘confession’ he stated that he “got divorced and it was not a bad divorce, it was one of those things where it just wasn’t right.”

Here’s the video with their complete conversation:

We contacted Ty Brown’s ex-wife, singer-songwriter Lindsey Grant, and she had a slightly different take on their split:

Contrary to what Ty has indicated publicly, our marriage did not end on amicable terms. I learned that my husband had been untruthful to me. I hope Ty is being true to himself when he says he is a changed person. I have moved on and I wish the same for him.

Lindsey GrantWe talked with a source close to Lindsey who said Ty had in fact cheated on her, but Lindsey wouldn’t confirm that. The couple filed for divorce in December of 2009 and it became official January 12 of this year, and within a few months Ty was slated to be a contestant on The Bachelorette! Meanwhile, Lindsey is still reeling from the split and being forced to watch her “untruthful” husband shmoozing Ali Fedotowsky on National television! Her statement is very restrained and classy given the situation.

UPDATE – Lindsey has further addressed Ty’s statements from the show in our exclusive interview and in a second post in which she provides commentary on what Ty told Ali during his one-on-one date in Turkey!

The paperwork from the couple’s divorce appears to back Lindsey’s side of the story as Ty got stuck with all the court fees as well as paying for Lindsey’s attorney. In addition, Ty had to pay $17,500 as part of the couple’s division of their marital estate and $10,000+ in alimony over the next twelve months.

In Ty’s defense he does seemingly hint at his wrong-doings when he says to Ali:

I was only married for a little over two years. And I was not perfect, I’ll be the first to admit. You have to give and take and if somebody doesn’t realize that going into the whole thing it can be extremely tough. But, I learned so much about myself, and I hope this next time around I think that I have learned enough life lessons that I can be a great husband. And I love being married, I really do.

Ty sure learns those life lessons and moves on quick!
