Cassie Randolph ‘was just terrified’ of Colton Underwood’s stalking & harassment

2019 iHeartRadio Wango Tango Presented By The JUVÉDERM® Collection Of Dermal Fillers

We previously discussed the situation between Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph, who met and fell for each other during a recent season of The Bachelor. Colton and Cassie broke up in May, and for months, there wasn’t much gossip about the split either way. Then late last week, Cassie filed for an emergency restraining order and accused Colton of stalking and harassing her post-breakup, including: putting a tracking device on her car, keeping tabs on her FAMILY and obsessively walking around her neighborhood. TMZ’s coverage of the restraining order was bad enough, but People Magazine – an outlet which often runs sugary Bachelor covers and updates, likely as part of a deal with ABC – barely spoke about the restraining order in their coverage the past few days. Finally, they did a story about it – People ran it as an exclusive and thankfully they’re being very sympathetic towards the victim. So much so, Colton’s behavior really gave me chills here.

Cassie Randolph wants Colton Underwood to seek “help,” a source tells PEOPLE after news broke that the former Bachelor contestant filed for a restraining order against her ex due to alleged harassment and stalking. As PEOPLE confirmed on Friday, Randolph, 25, made numerous claims in the filing, including that Underwood planted a tracking device in her car and sent her concerning text messages. The source says Randolph felt fearful of Underwood’s alleged behavior, prompting her to take legal action.

“After the breakup, Cassie wanted to be friends, and she thought they were on good terms,” the source shares. “Then the text messages and the frightening behavior started. Cassie was just terrified about how he was acting.” Randolph addressed why she was afraid in her request for a restraining order, saying Underwood “has admitted to a few mutual friends and coworkers that he placed the tracker on [her] car and used the alias phone numbers to send the anonymous text messages to [Randolph], himself, and others.”

The source says she confronted him about his alleged behavior and then he went out of town. “When she found out he was coming back in town, she was scared and felt she needed to pursue legal help,” the source tells people, adding that Randolph harbors no “ill will” but “wants [Underwood] to get whatever help he needs.”

Randolph has been granted a temporary restraining order, and the official court date is Oct. 6.

The incidents detailed on the temporary restraining order: the tracking device, the “obsessive” walks around her apartment building in LA, showing up unannounced at her apartment, turning up uninvited at her parents’ Huntington Beach home, standing outside of her bedroom at 2 am, creating a burner account to pretend to be an “anonymous” stalker, and trying to track whether she’s been seeing an ex. Again, Colton Underwood is a complete and total psycho and I’m terrified for Cassie. She’s doing the right thing by keeping track of everything he’s doing and getting it all on the record. She’s also doing the right thing by going to People Magazine (though they’re clearly protecting her as a “source”). This sh-t is a tragedy waiting to happen and again, I hope the courts and the cops work in her favor. I don’t want Colton to “get help” – he needs to be in jail for Cassie’s protection. He’s absolutely escalating and if no one intervenes, he will likely try to hurt her.

    As someone who has been stalked by an ex, this story rings true and it’s terrifying! I’ve never seen the show, but no one deserves to live in fear. I hope she stays safe.

      I’ll weigh in.

      I was stalked for a year and he made my life a living hell. Stalker laws (still) don’t cover enough. We need to change that, the sooner the better.

      To be clear, I don’t actually watch the show. It’s on when someone else here is tuned in and it’s just background noise to me. However, when his season aired, I couldn’t even passively watch it. Had to leave the room he tripped my triggers so hard, and I couldn’t put my finger on it. Guess now I know why.

      Always trust your gut.

    Something about him always seemed off – they tried too hard with this naive virgin narrative. I hope Cassie, her family, and friends all stay safe.

    • Miranda says:

      I’ve actually never seen the show. So he made a big deal about being a virgin? I don’t want to mock people who practice abstinence, but I’ve had experiences with guys like that, and a lot of them were incredibly creepy, like they had no idea how to interact with women. They seemed to think their stalking was romantic and that the girl should be flattered by their “dedication.”

      • Sayrah says:

        I saw a thread about the Notebook the other day. So many people say it’s the most romantic movie ever but it’s not. Noah asks Allie out and she says no. To get her to change her mind he climbs the Ferris wheel and threatens to let go and fall unless she says yes. Real romance there eh?

      • escondista says:

        Ugh yes. Being a virgin is a choice, not a personality. He sold this as his personality because the innocent, pure Christian boy is big with the crowd that watches The Bachelor. He is now using his Christian army to attack Cassie for “using him” for fame. You see she “ruined” his purity for personal gain so this justifies his stalking abuse and using an alias to point out his personal grievances because he has lost control of her and the relationship.
        All he needs to do is quote a bible verse and his BS is A-OKAY to his followers. Politicians are doing this constantly. “Do as I say and not as I do.”

  3. escondista says:

    The court documents shared the text messages sent from him pretending to be someone else. He needs serious help and I would also worry for my life. People who do this are controlling and unstable.

  4. Sayrah says:

    Dang, he’s crazy.

  5. Watson says:

    Good for her for protecting herself both legally and via People magazine. Seriously. Now he can’t go back and say she’s crazy, and every women out there can avoid his ass.

  6. Grant says:

    A former Bachelor reveals himself to be a dangerous narcissist POS incel? Who’da thunk it?! In other news, water is wet.

    Seriously though, the text messages are horrifying, especially given everything that her family did for him when he had COVID earlier this year. I have always heard rumors that this guy is secretly gay, so much so that he has had to address them in multiple interviews. I guess the rumors are just a byproduct of the “waiting for marriage” malarkey.

  7. FHMom says:

    This is awful. She needs protection, and he needs help.

  8. AmyB says:

    ABC really needs to not protect this asshole. Sorry. This is really scary, and I am glad she was able to take some action to protect herself. As I said on the other post about this, Colton didn’t take her “no” on his Bachelor season at the end. She wasn’t ready to commit, and left the show, and he literally flipped out and jumped a fence…and the host Chris Harrison had to run after him. People deemed it “romantic” yeah not so much.

    I never got good vibes from him. Now I know why.

    Hope she stays safe, and he stays away from her!!!!
