Cassie Randolph was recently granted a temporary restraining order against her ex, Colton Underwood.
Bachelor fans were shocked by this breakup, but the animosity between the two seems even more shocking since they tried to present a united front post-breakup. But now, the couple is going to have to appear in court to sort out their differences.
At the end of May, Colton Underwood posted an Instagram that announced he and his girlfriend, Cassie Randolph, had split.
“Its been a crazy few months to say the least, Cass and I have been doing a lot of self-reflecting,” he wrote. “Sometimes people are just meant to be friends – and that’s okay. We both have grown immensely and been through so much together – so this isn’t the end of our story, it’s the start of a whole new chapter for us.”
On the same day, Cassie shared a slideshow of photos of the couple, announcing their breakup as well.
Her caption read:
First off, I want to say this is one of the hardest things I have had to share as neither one of us is quite ready to talk about it yet. However, because our relationship is such a public one, our silence on the matter has been speaking for us. Colton and I have broken up, but have decided to remain a part of each others lives. With all that we have gone through, we have a special bond that will always be there. I love Colton very much and have an enormous amount of respect for him. We have both learned and grown so much these past couple years, and will always have each others back. Always.
The couple seemed to push the narrative that they were getting along post-breakup, but it appears they no longer “have each other’s back.”
Cassie was granted a temporary restraining order against Colton, and they are scheduled to appear in court in October.
According to Us Weekly, Colton has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Cassie, her home, her car, and her workplace. He has been instructed to make no contact, direct or indirect, in any way.
On Friday, September 11, Cassie sought a restraining order after accusing Colton of stalking, harassing, sending unsettling text messages, and tracking her car. Representatives told the outlet that they “cannot provide any comment at this time.”
According to court documents, the couple officially split in mid-April, a little over a month before their Instagram announcements. Colton repeatedly texted Cassie asking to talk about the breakup.
