Robby Hayes spoke out after his fellow Bachelor Nation star Jef Holm dropped a restraining order against him, claiming he, in fact, is the victim of Holm's own "harassment."
"Just imagine, coming home from a four-day work trip and your roommate, Jef Holm, who's actually been the one harassing, physically abusing, and making threats of violence and throwing your personal belongings to the curb has broken down the door to your room, moved all your stuff out, and changed the locks," the marketing executive told Page Six on Tuesday.
"Then, in an attempt to keep you away from your home, files a legal document to get a restraining order in place where you couldn't even step within a 100 yards of the place you've called home for 4.5 years, leaving you and your puppy homeless."
Hayes went on to say Holm "disregards" other people's well-being and the consequences of his actions. He added, "I just want to be able to feel comfortable in my own home without feeling like I can't leave my room for concern for my own safety."
As for why he waited so long to speak out on Holm's restraining order, Hayes said he was "concerned" for his safety.
Hayes' attorney also told US Weekly that Hayes is considering filing a restraining order and a defamation suit against Holm.
TooFab has reached out to Holm for comment.

Jef Holm has dropped his civil harassment restraining order against Robby Hayes, according to E! News.
In a statement to the publication, published on Monday, "The Bachelorette" alum explained his decision.
"Tensions died down as I hoped," Holm said. "I haven't seen any reason to continue with the restraining order, so I dropped it. Like I mentioned before, I wish him the best."
Per E! News, Los Angeles Superior Court Clerk's Office said that Holm was absent at Monday's scheduled hearing, prompting a judge to dismiss his request for protection. Hayes, meanwhile, has kept mum on the drama.
In the documents, Holm claimed Hayes, whom he called his "old roommate," comes to his house "at least once a week" and "becomes hostile."
"Robert used to live at my house but does not now. He continues to enter the premises and harass me," Holm alleged in the filing.
"I do not feel safe around him," he continued. "He threatens me and still hasn't stopped to this day. He claims he has belongings there and that's why he enters but he is not on the lease and is making me fearful."
Holm also described an alleged incident, in which he claimed Hayes entered his property "without permission" and "threatened" him last month.
"I was alone in my home when he entered abruptly and aggressively. Started threatening me and I felt very unsafe," he wrote.
In the wake of the filing, Holm shared a statement with E! News.
"In regards to the Robby situation, it's definitely been an unfortunate turn of events," he said. "I'm still processing all of it to be honest. The simple version is I invited Robby into my house that I was renting in Venice, which I am now in the process of purchasing. I allowed him to live there rent free for years as a friend. When the living situation became hostile I asked him to leave and he refused. It went on like this for months, eventually I had to take legal action."
"It's sad because I didn't want it to end like this," Holm added. "Hopefully tensions will die down and the temporary restraining order can be dropped. I just want to move on and I wish him the best."
Hayes and "Bachelorette" alum Chase McNary moved into Holm's Venice Beach home back in 2017, according to Us Weekly.
