'Bachelorette' contestant JJ Lane says he was beat up in LA

NEW YORK -- "Bachelorette" and soon-to-be "Bachelor in Paradise" contestant JJ Lane was beat up this weekend after "The Men Tell All" after-party in Los Angeles.

Lane tweeted about his misfortune on July 13.



Fellow contestant Jonathan Holloway joked that JJ's pair of black eyes was from him.





But as for what actually went down, JJ had this to say:






TMZ exclusively reports that JJ and a producer were apparently jumped by what he believes to be a gang and got in a fight. Who came to the rescue? The one and only Ben Zorn, known to Bachelor Nation as Ben Z.



Could this Instagram photo mean that Ben Z. is a late addition to "Bachelor in Paradise"? We'll have to wait and see.
