Clayton Echard was recently involved in a messy situation as a TikToker accused him of being intimate with her and cheating on Susie Evans.

Clayton was adamant that the rumors were untrue, as he and Susie even presented receipts to prove his innocence.

Ultimately the cheating allegations were confirmed to be false by Reality Steve, and it seems Clayton’s reputation has been saved. 

Several Bachelor Nation stars took Clayton’s side amid the scandal, and Clayton took to social media to voice his gratitude for the support.

Clayton Echard took to his Instagram stories to graciously react to the Bachelor Nation stars that had his back as the cheating rumors circulated online. 

The Bachelorette Season 17 fan-favorite Michael Allio made a video on his platform to address the scandal and defend Clayton. 

Clayton shared Michael’s video to his Instagram stories and wrote to the beloved Bachelor Nation dad, “Thank you, brother. Having people like you in my corner means a lot.”

Bachelor Nation star Blake Horstmann also showed support to Clayton after sharing a photo with Michale Allio and Bachelor Nation’s Jason Tartick in Michael’s home state of Ohio. 

Blake captioned the post, “Just 3 guys frantically trying to figure out how to turn on our location #ifykyk #butseriouslyhowdoyoudoit” which appeared to reference how Clayton’s location receipts helped clear his name against the accusations. 

Blake also shared the photo on his Instagram stories and more blatantly showcased his allegiance to Echard, writing “Team Clayton.” 

Clayton got a kick out of Blake’s post and reshared it to his Instagram stories, writing “The Caption” with a series of laughing emojis.
