The Bachelorette contestant Sam Cochrane has broken his silence after Sophie Monk said that he made her feel 'really uncomfortable'.
Sophie unleashed on the voice over artist after he claimed they had shared a kiss which didn't go to air, with Sophie revealing it wasn't true.
Sam has finally responded to the criticism, explaining that he was going to defend himself with 'evidence' but instead blames the "part truths" that were shown on TV.
"Women.... Here is a song about how beautiful and complex they are while sitting next to the woman that taught me to love. My mum. This was the night I got out of the mansion. Negativity has begun since getting out and I was about to defend myself with evidence," he said in an Instagram post.
"Only part truths made it to the screen and I know the truth in my heart. .... Why battle? - there is enough of that shit in the world and let’s face it. All we need is love."
The lengthy Instagram caption was accompanied by a video of Sam and his mother performing Billy Joel's 'Always A Woman'.
