‘The Bachelor’: Cassie Randolph Just Squashed Those Breakup Rumors

Though Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor ended months ago, that hasn’t stopped fans from obsessing about his relationship with Cassie Randolph. As Underwood had a very unusual season, culminating in that absurd fence jump, Bachelor Nation is even more invested in the couple. Because of the constant scrutiny, there are more rumors than ever before However, Randolph recently addressed those rumors with an extremely personal Instagram post.

Cassie Randolph and Colton Underwood

Believe it or not, it’s only been a year since Randolph and Underwood first met on The Bachelor and even less time since they’ve been dating exclusively. Since the pair is pressured on a daily basis to get married, it’s easy to forget that they actually haven’t been together for very long at all. Of course, when the couple isn’t being encouraged to get engaged, people are accusing them of secretly breaking up.

Breakup and proposal speculation

Whenever Underwood or Randolph go a few days without posting one another on Instagram, fans and critics alike are convinced that they have split up. Not only has Randolph been accused of hiding her alleged breakup with Underwood, but she have been accused of only dating him for the fame. Because she chose to quit The Bachelor and break up with Underwood during her tenure on the show, they assume that her feelings are not genuine. In the past, Randolph has been been fairly tight-lipped about addressing rumors, but she recently got candid in an Instagram post.

Randolph gets candid on Instagram

“I just wanted to take this time to be very transparent with you all. This past year has been nothing short of amazing and life-changing. I am so grateful for all the new things that have come into my life, but it’s also meant a lot of change and change isn’t always easy. I usually try to ignore any negativity people send my way, and initially, I wasn’t going to address anything, but I keep receiving dms and messaged about current rumors circulating. First, I know I am in the public eye and willingly put myself here by going on the show (although, I was unprepared for the gravity of what that meant!) and I understand that scrutiny of my life and my relationships just comes with the territory,” Randolph began.

The couple is focused on their relationship

The Bachelor alum then went on to share how she and Underwood navigate their unique relationship. “While it’s an extra hurdle at times, I try to keep it in perspective. Colton and I are very happy and our relationship is in a good place. Is our relationship perfect? No, it is very normal with its ups downs and compromises. Despite the microscope on our relationship, we are trying to stay focused on what is important and grow in the direction of getting stronger and closer every day. We know in order for us to work, we need to focus on each other and not the craziness that sometimes surrounds us and stay grounded. We are good!,” Randolph assured fans.

It’s great that Randolph took the time to set the record straight and squash the many rumors that are constantly circulating about herself and Underwood. The couple has to do what’s best for their relationship regardless of how many people are watching from a distance. Hopefully, with a new season of The Bachelor coming up in a few months, some of the pressure and scrutiny will start dying down.
