‘Bachelorette’ star beaten: JJ Lane Bachelorette, Former Bachelorette contestant JJ Lane is telling his side of the story after getting into a brawl over the weekend.

Lane, 32, was hospitalized after he and a crew member were ambushed Saturday night after taping the show’s Men Tell All special, TMZ reports.

The single dad addressed the incident Wednesday on Twitter, writing that he “stood up for a friend” and got “two black eyes.”

“Wrong place and wrong time,” he added. It was an unfortunate situation and I’m thankful it wasn’t worse for myself or my friends.”

Though he didn’t win a final rose from Kaitlyn Bristowe, Lane famously developed a close friendship with fellow suitor Clint Arlis, prompting ABC to dub them the “Brokeback Bachelors.” (For her part, Bristowe, 30, wasn’t bothered by the bromance.)

I stood up for a friend on Saturday and rec’d 2 black eyes for my effort. I did however leave 4 of them hurt and running away. #Facts

“You have a lot of downtime [in the house]. You find comfort in one person almost. I did that with [fellow Bachelor contestant] Becca Tilley,” she told PEOPLE. “We joked about being the first lesbian Bachelorettes!”

ABC declined to comment on the incident, and there’s no word on whether the injuries will impact Lane’s chances on the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise – PEOPLE exclusively revealed in June that he’ll be among Kaitlyn’s castaways looking for love in the tropics.

The Bachelorette airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, and Bachelor in Paradise premieres Aug. 2.
