Matt James also talked to his father about his life and the emotional moments when he was absent. James also confessed that he was scared of commitment due to his parents’ fraught marriage. He felt that the conversation was much needed to get him through a serious relationship in the future.
“This isn’t a celebration. This is a journey that I’m going on,” he told his dad. “That’s why you’re here dad. I want to have a relationship with you going forward and in order to have that, you have to understand where I’m at.”
“It had to get to this point. Whatever I can do to make it better, I’ll work on it. I want you to be happy. … I want you to have a relationship that’s healthy and not what I went through,” his father Manny said.
“I forgive you. I’m not holding grudges,” Matt replied. “I want us to move forward.”

Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnel breakup
Earlier Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell have broken up due to Rachael’s racism controversy. A source from Life & Style also confirmed the split. “Matt and Rachael Kirkconnell are no longer together.”
“Matt broke up with Rachael mainly due to the backlash. At the end of the day, he cared more about protecting himself, supporting his friend [former Bachelorette] Rachel Lindsay and speaking out against the franchise. Rachael can’t wait until she can finally share her side of the story once the finale airs,” added the source.
Although the star had recently posted on his Instagram a huge message about the racism controversy, and we think that after proper understanding, he is reconsidering being back together with Kirkconnell.
