It’s a sad day in Bachelor Nation. On May 29, Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph announced that they officially ended their relationship. The two released separate statements on their Instagram pages, and assured fans that although their romantic relationship is over, they plan to remain friends.
Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph broke up
On May 29, both Randolph and Underwood shared posts on their Instagram pages announcing their breakup. In her post, Randolph posted a series of photos with Underwood.
In the post she wrote:
“First off, I want to say this is one of the hardest things I have had to share as neither one of us is quite ready to talk about it yet. However, because our relationship is such a public one, our silence on the matter has been speaking for us. Colton and I have broken up, but have decided to remain a part of each others lives. With all that we have gone through, we have a special bond that will always be there. I love Colton very much and have an enormous amount of respect for him. We have both learned and grown so much these past couple years, and will always have each others back. Always.”
Underwood then shared a black-and-white photo with Randolph and captioned the photo:
“Its been a crazy few months to say the least, Cass and I have been doing a lot of self-reflecting. Sometimes people are just meant to be friends – and that’s okay. We both have grown immensely and been through so much together – so this isn’t the end of our story, it’s the start of a whole new chapter for us.”
Reality Steve commented on the breakup
After Underwood and Randolph announced their split, blogger Reality Steve commented on the former couple’s relationship.
“I don’t think this should come as a surprise to many. Especially the 50 times a day I’ve been getting asked ‘Have Colton and Cassie broken up?’ Breakups happen. They’re never fun. Lets just move on,” he tweeted.
The blogger famously did not think Underwood and Randolph would last after Underwood’s season of The Bachelor.
“Will they eventually get engaged and get married? Not a chance in h*ll, but hey, I’m sure some of you out there think she might come around on it. They’ll date, they’ll carry this out for x amount of months, but I don’t see this going anywhere,” Reality Steve wrote on his blog.
Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph had not posted about each other in a month
While Randolph and Underwood just announced their breakup, the former couple had not posted about each other in quite some time. In March, Underwood revealed that he tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19) and Randolph and her family helped nurse him back to health.
However, after that, Randolph and Underwood scarcely posted about each other on social media. The last time Randolph posted about Underwood on her Instagram page was on April 19, when she promoted her appearance on Coffee With Colton. Aside from posting about the breakup, Underwood had not posted about Randolph since April 27 when he celebrated her 25th birthday.
