Colton Underwood’s self-quarantine is leading him to confess some crazy stuff, like the fact that he and Cassie Randolph briefly broke up after his season of The Bachelor. Gasp!
In a recent interview with People magazine, the 28-year-old Bachelor Nation star talked about his all-new memoir The First Time, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at his experience on the show. While discussing his relationship with Randolph, Underwood admitted that they struggled after the finale aired on TV—so much so that they briefly broke up due to communication issues.
“To put it very frank, after the show, we realized we weren’t communicating as well as we once did,” he said. “Nobody was forcing us to talk about real things going on, so we let a lot of things build up.”
Underwood explained that he needed to take some time for himself, adding, “In a weird way, I kind of broke up with myself. I was like, ‘I feel like we need to figure this out and in order to do that, we need space.’ She agreed. So, it was a mutual thing.”
