“My mom was obsessed with her, it would piss me the hell off,” Cameron said of his late mother's relationship with Brown, before sharing how the reality star's appearance at her funeral was a "breath of fresh air"
“I was very upset,” Cameron, 30, admitted on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast. “I definitely cried a little bit, got a 12 pack of beer, sat in the bathtub for two hours, put on some Juice WRLD and cried and got over it.”
In the season 15 finale of The Bachelorette, Brown turned down Cameron’s proposal and got engaged to Wyatt. She later called off the engagement after learning that Wyatt allegedly had a girlfriend when he was on the show.
Despite turning down Cameron while filming, Brown later publicly asked him out during the After the Final Rose special. The former couple spent time together in her Los Angeles home in early August 2019 and isolated together during the 2020 pandemic.
“My mom was obsessed with her, it would piss me the hell off,” Cameron admitted to Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast host Amanda Hirsch. “Always posting about her, I’m like ‘you’re just making it harder for me to like live my own life.’ 'Cause everyone would go to her, bring it all up and it’d become news stories of this and that, you know?”
According to the Special Forces competitor, Brown kept a relationship with his mother, who “loved her.” Unbeknownst to him, the pair would “talk all the time” and “she was so good to my mom.”
While sitting next to his mother’s hospital bedside, Cameron recalled “thinking about Hannah” and their relationship when he received a text from her. After a long talk, Brown asked to fly to Florida to attend the funeral.
“It was a nice breath of fresh air,” he said. “It was great.”
A week after his mother’s celebration of life, Cameron got “drunk” and “invited her back because I was feeling her.”
Despite his intentions to pursue something romantic, their reunion was “too soon” after his loss.
