New details have emerged surrounding Rachel Lindsay’s finances and her marriage with ex Bryan Abasolo as their divorce continues to move ahead.

The high-profile couple met on Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette and wed in 2019, only to announce their divorce earlier this year.

Now Lindsay, 39, has hit back against her ex, 44, as he seeks financial support from her amid their separation.

Page Six obtained Lindsay’s responsive declaration in which she states she does ‘not consent’ to Abasolo’s wishes for spousal support and attorney’s fees.

However, she hasn’t completely ruled out supporting Abasolo, and documents obtained by TMZ indicate that she has offered to pay him just under $10K.

Based on what she and Abasolo are allegedly earning per month, Lindsay — who is a lawyer — said she would be willing to pay her ex $9,882 per month in spousal support.

In the documents, she reportedly indicated that she earns an impressive $61,019 per month, while she says Abasolo earns around $13,413 per month.

He previously claimed in documents that he had earned just $16,000 in 2023, allegedly because he had put his career on hold to support his wife’s more high-profile work.

However, Lindsay reportedly disputes her ex’s alleged 2023 income, and she claims that he has also earned money from his social media accounts.

According to Page Six, Lindsay slammed her ex for allegedly overstating her ‘glamorous’ lifestyle in the divorce petition he filed in January, and she insisted that she is not as well off as he believes. 

‘I am not flush with cash, as he believes me to be,’ she said.  ‘And I certainly cannot pay his attorney $75,000 to litigate our uncomplicated divorce. If I did so, I would not have sufficient funds remaining to pay my own counsel.’

The lawyer says she currently has ‘approximately $88,500 in non-retirement funds’ and also revealed her ‘financial situation’ had changed in recent years. 

Describing her finances, the former Bachelorette explained how the majority of her income stems from her deal with music streaming app Spotify, on top of the occasional social media collaboration. 

Lindsay, who co-hosts the Higher Learning podcast, explained: ‘I have had sporadic social media deals, but my primary source of income since 2023 has been from my work with Spotify.’

She hit back at claims Abasolo made about their lifestyle in his divorce petition, stating their ‘marital standard of living (‘MSOL’) was nowhere near as glamorous as Bryan portrays it to be.’

The reality star, who gave Abasolo her final rose on The Bachelorette in 2017, also claimed they ‘rarely saw each other or even lived together during [their] brief marriage.’

The podcaster also went on to describe how they kept their finances separate during the marriage. 

‘At all times, Bryan and I maintained separate bank accounts (checking and savings), credit cards, retirement accounts and brokerage accounts. We had zero joint accounts during our marriage,’ she said. 

‘From October 2019 to March 2021, before we moved to Los Angeles, Bryan and I split all of the household expenses. I used my income and he used his,’ she explained. 

Lindsay also claimed they purchased their marital residence in Los Angeles using ‘funds from [her] premarital separate property’ and alleged her ex was still living in their home.

However, she claimed he does not contribute ‘any funds to the carrying costs.’ 

Her responsive declaration also described the trips they took together during their marriage and how the costs were divided up or even ‘subsidized by other sources.’ 

According to TMZ, Lindsay accused Abasolo of failing to pay a fair amount of their shared expenses, and she even claimed that he revealed he was filing for divorce to her in a text message — despite allegedly never mentioning a divorce in an in-person conversation they had just 30 minutes before he sent the message. 

It comes after Lindsay revealed her regrets at not getting a prenuptial agreement. 

‘A lot of people are like, “You’re a lawyer. … Do you have a prenup?” I don’t,’ the reality star revealed on the Hidden Gems With Natasha Parker podcast.

She goes on to explain her thought process for her inaction, revealing, ‘The reason I didn’t is because the place I’m in now … financially … is totally different than when I got married. We were more leveled, and I wasn’t in California.’

Lindsay maintains she told her then-fiancé that she thought a prenup was a good idea, but that they weren’t ‘on the same page.’

In regards to it being in ‘a different time’ when they tied-the-knot in August 2019, she admitted she was leading more with her heart over logic.

In his divorce filing in January, Abasolo listed New Year's Eve as the date of his and Lindsay's official separation, for which he cited 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason for their split

‘I didn’t want it to be a bigger issue, so we didn’t have one,’ she added. ‘Hindsight is 20/20. I would’ve done it.’

In his divorce filing in January, Abasolo listed New Year’s Eve as the date of his and Lindsay’s official separation, for which he cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for their split.

The petition for divorce with the courts after four years of marriage also states that the chiropractor is seeking spousal support.

Lindsay told podcast host Natasha Parker that while her split itself was ‘amicable,’ she thought Abasolo’s filing was ‘unnecessarily messy.’
