About Manny’s Relationship With Matt James
So, the fans of the Bachelor nations saw Manny on the March 8 2021 episode of The Bachelor. He was at Nemacolin Resort in Pennsylvania to talk to his son Matt.
The scene on the ABC series quickly turned tense when Matt confronted Manny about cheating on his mother, Patty James. To this Manny tried to clarify the air between father and son saying, “My father was killed when I was 5, Matt. … Do you know what I went through with your mom when you guys were like 2 or 3? I came home one day and your mom was gone. It wasn’t a good thing that I was cheating. I’m not proud of it.”
Again, Matt fired back and dared his father to not make excuses. Then, speaking for his mother he said, “I thank God that she had the courage to stand up for herself and do something because of the situation you put her in.” Still, Matt seemingly did not want to miss out on a chance to solve their issues and so he did end up getting an apology from Manny which went like this: “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 healthy relationship and not what I went through.”
And Matt also sealed the deal with an “I forgive you. I’m not holding grudges. I want us to move forward.”
Manny’s reality television star son has been open about his falling out with Manny. In 2020, Matt had notably tributed his mom Patty on Father’s Day. “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling”, he had described his mom as a single parent. And just as he put it his mother raised Matt and her other son John, on her own.
Manny James Wife, Kids
So it’s been promised Manny James’s former wife Patty James would be bringing her part of the story on the season finale of The Bachelor on March 15, 2020. And maybe then Manny’s now anonymous relationship status would be revealed.
For now, all one could tell is he and Patty were long ago divorced and Manny was never in the family picture for Patty and her kids with him.
Matt confessed that he witnessed the infidelity between his parents at a young age. He has been more than vocal about how Manny’s absence affected his life. What’s more, Matt participated in The Bachelor not wanting to “perpetuate” his dad’s “behavior.”
Besides Matt, Manny, and his former wife, Patty had a son named John James who is a rapper by trade.
