IN Coming out Colton, however, he opened up about his previous relationship with Bachelor Nation’s Cassie Randolph, who received his last rose on The bachelor23rd season. In May 2020, the duo decided to quit after less than two years together.
“I thought I found someone who could change me,” Colton said of Cassie on his Netflix show, explaining the reason for sticking to their romance. “After the breakup with Cassie, it was pretty tough. I hit rock bottom. I took a lot of Xanax without thinking I was going to wake up the next morning. I did, and it was really bad.”
Colton and Cassie’s split was less rosy after she applied for a restraining order against him in September 2020, alleging that he persecuted and harassed her between June and August.
In November of that year, she dropped the restraining order, and Colton publicly apologized to her, saying at the time, “I do not think Cassie did anything wrong in applying for the restraining order and also believe she acted in good faith.”
