Clare Crawley has ‘battle wounds’ on kissing boyfriend’s lips

Sometimes love hurts.

Former “Bachelorette” Clare Crawley shut down rumors that she was getting lip fillers, instead claiming they were “battle wounds” from getting frisky with her boyfriend.

The 41-year-old captioned a video of her making chili on Tuesday: “Also no, I didn’t get my lips done, it’s the result of sensitive skin + a hot guy with a beard.”

Later in the day, she gave her one million followers a peek at the damage in a smiling selfie, captioned “combat wounds 😂.”

Crawley and her boyfriend Ryan Dawkins, 45, went Instagram official earlier this month when the former reality star posted a video of the couple laughing while listening to music in the car.

“He,” she wrote alongside the much-loved video of Dawkins resting his hand on her thigh.

It turns out the couple has been dating for a while, with Crawley posting a comment that read “one year later and you guys are still so cute.”

Some of the reality star’s famous friends from the ABC reality series also agreed to support.

“AND HE’S AMAZING,” Sarah Herron noted.

“I like to see. So deserved ️,” added fan-favorite Michael Allio.

“The secret is finally out ❤️ 👏”, Katie Thurston chimed in.

The news of Crawley’s bearded beauty comes nearly a year after she and Dale Moss, 33, called it quits after getting engaged just weeks into her stint as the “bachelorette.”

The former couple split for good in September 2021 after a brief reconciliation following their split eight months earlier.

A source told us at the time that the couple’s “mutual” breakup was the result of major disagreements over where to live and how soon they wanted to start a family.

Crawley has since opened up about her time as the season 16 lead and the “painful” rift that followed.

The pair went Instagram official earlier this month.

“My biggest regret is trusting the process, trusting a man — a man’s words and who he showed me he was,” she said on an episode of Jana Kramer’s podcast, “Whine Down.” “I don’t think that’s a regret, like, I trusted someone, I believed someone that they were who they said they were or that they would keep the promises they make if they get down on one knee.”

She continued: “I don’t know if that’s a regret, I loved, and have always had such a deep love for Dale, and A) he doesn’t leave overnight and B) I don’t regret it of that I loved him love him.”

She went on to talk about the difficulties of being in a relationship in the public eye — one reason she may have kept her new relationship with the CEO of Mascot Sports a secret until this month.

“I wish people knew both sides, you know, because it’s easy for a publicist or source to tell a story about what they want their client or friend to look and look like, especially when your career is based and dreams are based on being out in the open. But things are painful and I’m human, so it does affect me,” she said in the podcast.

Moss has also moved on since the couple’s split and was spotted with model Florencia Galarza.
