The Bachelor’s Cassie Randolph filed for a restraining order against ex-boyfriend, Colton Underwood, shortly after they announced their split.
Cassie Randolph won Colton Underwood’s love on the season finale of The Bachelor. Their relationship was quickly surrounded by drama when Cassie filed for a restraining order against him, a mere month after their split.
A Los Angeles court has granted Randolph a temporary restraining order against Underwood. In her request for the restraining order, Randolph reportedly accused Underwood of harassing and stalking her in different instances since June 2020. She also described how he sent her unsettling text messages, called her repeatedly, and even placed a tracking device in her vehicle. She also accused Colton of lurking near her family home in Huntington Beach, California. Her brother also went on record, stating that he allegedly saw Underwood in the alley outside of her bedroom window at 02:00 sometime in June 2020.
Screenshots of texts allegedly shared between the couple were included in the court documents. In one of the texts, Underwood allegedly told Randolph that she is a selfish person who is not ready to be loved. Their court hearing was scheduled on 6 October 2020, but Randolph dropped the charges against Underwood before the hearing.
“Cassie asked the court to dismiss the temporary restraining order against me,” Underwood told Us Weekly. “The two of us were able to reach a private agreement to address any of Cassie’s concerns. I do not believe Cassie did anything wrong in filing for the restraining orders and also believe she acted in good faith. I appreciate everyone’s respect for privacy regarding this matter,” he added.
A lot has occurred since they came to an agreement. In an interview with Good Morning America on 14 April 2021, Underwood came out as gay, but stated that he is still in love with his ex, Randolph. He confessed that his love for Randolph made coming to terms with his sexuality “more confusing.”
He also addressed his dramatic split from Cassie, stating, “I’m sorry for any pain and emotional stress I caused. I wish that it wouldn’t have happened the way that it did. I wish that I had been courageous enough to fix myself before I broke anybody else.”
