In Coming Out Colton, he did, however, open up about his past relationship with Bachelor Nation’s Cassie Randolph, who received his final rose on The Bachelor‘s 23rd season. In May 2020, the duo decided to call it quits after less than two years together.
“I thought that I found someone who could change me,” Colton said about Cassie on his Netflix show, explaining the reason for holding on to their romance. “After the breakup with Cassie, it was pretty rough. I hit rock bottom. I took a lot of Xanax, not thinking I was going to wake up the next morning. I did and it was really bad.”
Colton and Cassie’s split was less than rosy, after she filed for a restraining order against him in September 2020, alleging that he stalked and harassed her between June and August.
In November of that year, she dropped the restraining order and Colton publicly apologized to her, stating at the time, “I do not believe Cassie did anything wrong in filing for the restraining orders and also believe she acted in good faith.”
