Things got messy yesterday between former Bachelor Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph. The two announced their split over a month ago and said they would remain on close terms. That doesn’t seem to be the case. Colton shared a post talking a bit more about their relationship and Cassie did not like what he had to say. She called him out for the world to see and now he is responding to her accusations.

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. Every experience provides us with an opportunity for growth. If you’ve been kind enough to have followed our story you’ve been with us through all of the ups and downs which have taught me so many lessons. 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. I can’t thank y’all enough for your understanding and your support during this time. Your messages mean a lot!
Colton speaks out in response to Cassie’s public letter to him
US Weekly shared details about what went down. Colton initially shared a post in which he said, “When our relationship ended we agreed to handle things as privately as possible as we attempted to navigate our new relationship as friends.” He continued, “I chose to do that since we were living in this interim period, but obviously a lot changed this week.”
Colton was referring to Cassie doing an interview on The Bachelor: GOAT. Cassie saw his post and had a response for the world to see. Part of her Instagram story post said, “On Monday evening, you informed me you intend to monetize our breakup by writing a new chapter to discuss your experience with COVID (where you stayed in my family’s house during your recovery and about our breakup). You have also refused to give me any sort of approval on the chapter you will be writing, which will heavily feature me … This seems a bit unfair to me. Colton, you can do what you want, but please do not have a double standard.”
