A report from Page Six said today that Luke Parker, the Bachelorette contestant, was ordered to pay $100,000 to NZK Productions Inc for breaching his contract related to the ABC series. Court documents obtained by Page Six describe the court case in question.
Fans of The Bachelorette know Parker was on Hannah Brown‘s season back in 2019. Reportedly, the production company has filed a suit against Parker for working with other companies without their consent, which is what he agreed to in his contract.
They fined him $25,000 every time he worked with another company that wasn’t allowed outside of his contract. He first signed the deal with the organization back in January 2019 which stipulated that he wouldn’t work with any other media organizations for at least one year.
More specifically, they told him he wasn’t allowed to work with another media company at least one year from the airing of the final episode of The Bachelorette. As a result, Parker now owes them more than $100,000.

The court documents say that The Bachelorette star appeared in other productions at least four times from September to October of 2019. The last episode of the production aired on the 30th of July, 2019.
Additionally, the contract barred him from sharing any outside information about the program, including any insider knowledge that would put The Bachelorette into jeopardy. They have accused him of violating this part of the contract as well.
Back in June, they filed a lawsuit against him in a Los Angeles County Superior Court and they demanded he pays the fines. Thus far, Parker hasn’t responded officially to the charges.
As it was noted above, Parker appeared in Hannah Brown’s season, who later went on to choose Jed Wyatt after a brief fling with Tyler Cameron. Ironically, Cameron wound up being the biggest star from The Bachelorette because he later went on to date Gigi Hadid.
Following Hannah and Jed’s breakup, it was reported that Hannah Brown had also been hanging around Brown at his home in Jupiter, Florida.
