Before We Date Again,You will do this... Rachael Kirkconnell gave Matt James an "ultimatum" 

Matt James revealed that Rachael Kirkconnell gave him an “ultimatum” or a condition he must accept before they start dating again. Their new relationship will begin under the condition of full commitment from him.

“She was like, ‘If you’re going to make this work, let’s do it. But, if you’re not going to make it work, I’m going to let you do your own thing,’” he said on the “Pomp” podcast Tuesday.

“That’s really all I needed. It was an ultimatum that I needed,” he continued. “It’s been great. It was honestly a commitment that we made to each other that we were going to work on the relationship.” 

James, 29, also admitted that at one point he wasn’t “really honoring” his commitment to 24-year-old Kirkconnell.

On May 5, Pagesix reported that the two couple were back together

“They are back together, but Matt is hesitant to publicly and outrightly confirm it right now because it’s still fresh and they still have issues to work through,” a source tells Page Six exclusively. “Rachael already faced scrutiny for her past, and now all eyes have shifted to Matt, so he’s feeling pressure to set a good example for other black men.

“He’s aware that people are not going to be happy that he jumped back into a relationship with Rachael so soon,” the source adds. “So while he is happy to have her in his life again, he is not ready to scream it from the rooftops yet.”

James and Kirkconnell  broke up after photos of Kirkconnell attending an antebellum plantation-themed party in 2018 resurfaced on social media. She has since apologized and said that she is “learning and will continue to learn how to be antiracist.”

James reaffirmed that he’s fully committed to Kirkconnell and “not pursuing any relationships right now outside of that.”

“There were rough patches in our relationship [and] we actually broke up for a moment. We’re back together [now],” James explained on the “Pomp” podcast. “Everything we’ve been through, everything she’s been through, she’s stuck right by my side. She’s continued to have a positive attitude. It’s one of the many things I love about her.
