The single mum surprised fans on Monday when she shared a clip of Ivan in her kitchen - but according to her caption, all is innocent!
Armed with his trust tools, the professional painter was seen getting to work on Alex's kitchen.
"Doesn't even need a ladder. Met him on a reality TV show, hired him to paint my house," Alex accompanied to clip which she posted to her Instagram stories.
Tall, talented and kind - it looks like Alex has Ivan in her cornered ahead of Tuesday night's Bachelor In Paradise premiere.
In the trailer, Alex snaps: "So you are honestly sitting there and saying you were perfect in our relationship?"
Richie responds: "No one's perfect, I'm not saying that. Don't put words in my mouth, Alex!"
Alex then storms off in tears before screaming: "Someone is making you look like a f**king idiot!"
Bring. It. On!
