Receiving his final rose on the finale of Season 23 of The Bachelor, Cassie and Colton continued dating until announcing their split in May 2020.
“There are a lot of bad memories associated with the end of their relationship,” the source added. “She wishes there was a way to completely separate herself from his narrative.”
Adding to Page Six, the source continued, “It’s nice to see that he appears genuinely sorry — and it’s comforting to know that his friends and family are holding him accountable for everything he did to Cassie.”
In the trailer for the upcoming special, Cassie is mentioned by Colton’s father who tells his son, “Cassie filed a restraining order against you. You went off the rails.”
In agreeance with his father’s comment, Colton added, “I put a poor girl through hell because of my insecurities.”
