It seemed like a healthy break-up between Bachelor Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph, until now. Colton spoke out today for the first time about their split since the initial announcement. Now, Cassie is speaking out and she is obviously very unhappy with Colton for sharing his thoughts.
Colton spoke up and Cassie is not happy
Colton went to Instagram to share a post with fans. He said, “These last few weeks have been challenging because, by now, you all know I’m an open book and I enjoy sharing my life with y’all. When our relationship ended we agreed to handle things as privately as possible as we attempted to navigate our new relationship as friends. I chose to do that since we were living in this interim period, but obviously a lot changed this week.”
He went on to say that every experience is an opportunity for growth. Colton said, “I’ve come to realize when you’re in the thick of it you just need to take a step back and look at things from a different perspective, in doing so I have gained so much clarity about what I want and more importantly what I need in a relationship. I’m so excited for this next chapter of my life with new stories and new people.”
He wrapped up his post thanking fans for their support and understanding. Many fellow stars commented on his post thanking him for being an open book. One particular star, Chrishnell Stause commented. She said, “There is a special place in heaven for anyone that’s gone through public breakups. I have decided. 💗.” Many know Chrishnell just went through a very public break-up with This Is Us star Justin Hartley.
Cassie responds to her ex boyfriend
After seeing Colton’s post, Cassie posted three pages on Instagram stories in response to his message. The post was essentially a letter to Colton. Cassie started her post saying she didn’t want a war on social media. She went on to say that she and Colton agreed to not discuss their relationship publicly. She also said up until now that they have both kept up their end of the deal.
Cassie went on to say she did The Bachelor Goat interview this week because she is thankful for the platform they gave her. She went on to say she and Colton shared a healthy 1.5 year relationship.
She said Colton has intentions to publicly discuss their split
Cassie went on in her post to say that Monday evening Colton went to her and told her of plans to monetize their breakup. She said he plans on writing a new chapter which discusses his Covid experience and also their split. Fans can recall he recovered from the coronavirus while staying in her family’s home.
Cassie went on to say he won’t let her approve any of the things he plans to write about. She also asked once again that he not prolong their breakup or drag her through the mud.
She ended the post saying, “Thanking you in advance.” Cassie continued, “I would prefer this to now be the end of this. I wish you nothing but the best & hope you can move on peacefully and successfully.”
What started out as an agreement to continue friends is turning into something ugly. Hopefully these two can move forward and find happiness.
