Did Colton Underwood stalk Cassie?
Colton Underwood, 29, dated Bachelor contestant Cassie Randolph from 2018 through 2020.
The couple seemingly looked perfect together, often flaunting their relationship on social media and sharing intimate snaps of each other.
While the split was originally believed to be amicable, things got messy when Cassie filed a restraining order against Colton.
Back in September 2020, she accused Colton of "stalking" and "tracking her car."
She was granted a temporary restraining order that forced Colton to stay at least 100 yards away from her, in addition to her car, home, workplace, and school.
Before the filing, TMZ reported that Cassie claimed Colton had been harassing and stalking her with text messages.
Additionally, he also allegedly planted a tracking device by taping it to the bottom of the back bumper of her car to learn of her whereabouts, according to the site.
Following news of their split, a source told People that the two had different priorities and ultimately knew they were not going to work.
"Colton and Cassie just weren’t on the same page. Colton really wanted to settle down and get married – he’s been ready for a long time.
"And Cassie just wasn’t ready. They both knew it wasn’t going to work," the source said.
What did Cassie say about Colton’s gay announcement?
Cassie reportedly had no idea that Colton was gay.
In portions of the Good Morning America interview aired during an episode of Nightline, Colton said he never spoke with her "at all" about the issue.
"I don't know if I ever will get the chance to sit down and talk with her," he explained. "I would like to. I would like to say sorry for how things ended.”
"I made mistakes at the end of that relationship.
Adding: "I ruined the good memories we had by my actions and what I did to hold on to being straight because I didn't want to look at myself in the mirror."
Who is Cassie Randolph dating now?
Cassie is rumored to be dating model Brighton Reinhardt.
Reinhardt is also a singer and social media influencer, with a following of over 89,000 on Instagram.
While the two have been reportedly linked since the summer of 2020, Brighton denied the rumors to US Weekly.
The model said: “Cassie and I are just friends and have been for over four or so years. My brothers and I are all close with Cassie and her whole family.”
