Bachelor Jake Reportedly Threatens to Punch Vienna During Breakup Special
A fight between disbanded Bachelor couple Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi took a turn for the worse during the filming of an ABC breakup special when Jake allegedly clenched his fists and threatened to punch Vienna. Quotes from the horrifying scene paint Jake as an out-of-control egotist, which is unfortunately not a surprise -- his recent claims about Vienna's "insane jealousy" and "serious lack of respect" seemed a little over-angry. Ready for the first-hand accounts?
According to stories compiled by the Huffington Post, Jake's violent behavior shocked everyone, including producers:
"Vienna was confronting him, exposing all his lies," a source told Star. "He started screaming at her: 'Shut up! Don't belittle me! Don't question me! Shut up!' And all of a sudden, he literally jumped out of his chair, pulled back his fist and lunged at her! All of the executives were freaking out. They pulled him off of her and rushed them off to separate rooms."
"The execs were screaming at him, 'What the heck are you doing?' And the camera people were all like, 'Oh my god, we can't use any of this,'" the source said. "Vienna is scared to death."
"Jake was visibly angry," the source told Radar. "At one point out of nowhere he wheeled back and I thought he was going to throw a punch. He pulled his arm back and his hand was in a fist."
Yikes. Would it be too bold to say that we'd seen his rage before? The memory of Jake cursing himself when he couldn't nail the steps on Dancing with the Stars sticks out in my mind, anyway. Here he calls dance partner Chelsie Hightower "very, very disrespectful" and claims, "When Chelsea fires at me, I want to fire right back. It's hard to restrain." Yep, yikes again.
