Colton Underwood Dishes On Relationship Status Following Cassie Randolph Split

Colton Underwood is giving fans an update on his relationship status after ending things with Cassie Randolph.

Underwood addressed his relationship status during the Chat4Good panel on Tuesday, Aug. 11, per Us Weekly.

“I would consider myself single right now. I’m happily single,” he shared. “My next relationship I’m already in and that’s with myself. I’ve decided that I want to spend my energy and focus on all my attention on myself, which I’m actually weirdly loving.”

“I don’t want to say my exes weren’t this, but I just want somebody who complements and fits into my life seamlessly,” he continued. “I think that’s something that I’m going to be looking for, and I don’t want to feel like it has to be forced or set up or feel like we have to compromise too much.”

Underwood, who is rumoured to be involved with Lucy Hale, added, “I think, while compromising is very important in a relationship, it’s something that you can only take so much of.”

Back in May, the couple released their own emotional statements on social media to announce that they had gone their separate ways.

“It’s 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,” Underwood posted. “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.”

“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,” Randolph captioned her post.

Added the 25-year-old, “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.”

Rumours had been swirling about a potential split after Underwood returned to his home state of Colorado solo following his recovery from COVID-19. Underwood fought the disease from Randoph’s family home where she cared for him from a safe distance.

Their break up comes almost two years after their controversial season of “The Bachelor”, where they left as boyfriend and girlfriend rather than as an engaged couple (which is the typical ending of every “Bachelor/ette” season.)
