Colton Underwood’s Alleged Text Messages to Cassie Randolph Revealed

Published

on

After Cassie Randolph filed a restraining order against Colton Underwood, more details are surfacing about their relationship.

In legal documents obtained by “Extra,” Randolph cited domestic violence prevention as the reason behind the filing.

The restraining order also included alleged text messages between Randolph and Underwood. In one text from June 27, Colton allegedly wrote to Cassie, “…Because your [sic] a selfish person who isn’t ready to be loved. I spent two years loving you the best I could and now I’m sitting here feeling like a fool… You’ve hurt me beyond words… I’ve always done nothing but be there for you and you still disrespect me all the time.”

When Cassie wrote, “What did I even do??,” Colton replied, “You hid things from me and been so shady.”

Hours later, Colton allegedly wrote, “I apologize for some of the things I said last night. I’m lost right now. I’m drowning.”

The document also detailed an incident from July 25, when Cassie’s friend Caelan visited her apartment and Colton “somehow immediately knew, and obsessively called and sent text messages.” According to the paper, “Ms. Randolph was startled that he knew who was coming in and out of her apartment, and felt like she was being watched. A few days later, Mr. Underwood showed up again at Ms. Randolph’s apartment, still upset again about Caelan’s visit a few days prior; he proceeded to yell at Ms. Randolph, threatening, ‘I am going to keep you accountable.’”

After the incident, Colton allegedly sent a text message saying, “I’m just sitting in bed trying to fall asleep wondering if the woman I’m madly in love with is having a good time with her ex. I have a million questions and all of them I don’t know if I want the answers to. My heart hurts a lot right now and I miss my best friend, my lover and the one person I never expected to lose.”

Cassie replied to the text, writing, “Colton I really care about you too. I know going through everything is very hard and sucks. And I appreciate you calling me to talk with me. But I also won’t want to make it into something it isn’t. You know that us trusting each other and being cool with each other, and caring about each other is still there. I don’t think that is something that should be able to flip flop so easily. And also, it’s a different road we are navigating now that we aren’t used to. Don’t be upset, you know I care about you so much. You know that.”

In another text from July 30, Cassie stressed her desire to keep it amicable after their split, adding, “I care about you, but this continued anger and drama cycle has got to stop. It is not healthy. You do you, I’ll do me. That doesn’t. mean we don’t care and aren’t kind. Just means we have to let go a bit in order to make things healthier.”

Randolph also accuses Underwood of sending anonymous text messages to her and to himself, pretending to be a victim of a stalker. The filing stated, “Mr. Underwood also used alias phone numbers to anonymously send harassing text messages at all hours of the day to Ms. Randolph and to her friends. Mr. Underwood also sent harassing text messages to himself pretending to also be a victim of the anonymous stalker… He later admitted to being the one sending the messages.”

In one text from the anonymous number to Cassie, it read, “You like playing games huh? Let’s play some games then.”

Cassie accuses Colton of “stalking and harassment,” claiming that he tracked her whereabouts by taping a tracking device to her car.

Along with pics of the tracking device, the filing stated, “Due to the harassing text messages that evidence knowledge of Ms. Randolph’s whereabouts on multiple occasions, Ms. Randolph and her family thought that someone might be tracking her and decided to check Ms. Randolph’s car for a tracker. Ms. Randolph and her family discovered a tile tracking device taped to the bottom of the back bumper of her car. The discovery of the device was shocking and caused Ms. Randolph severe distress; she immediately became concerned about a stalker.”

“Fearful for her safety, Ms. Randolph contacted the police and a private investigator to help her figure out who had placed the tracking device on her car and was sending the messages stalking her whereabouts,” the filing continued. “Two days later, on August 21, 2020, Ms. Randolph confronted Mr. Underwood… Mr. Underwood admitted that he was the one who put the tracker on her car and has been the one sending text messages to her, her friends and himself.”

The papers also mention Colton showing up uninvited to her apartment in Los Angeles and her parents’ Huntington Beach home. On June 27, Cassie visited her family home, where “Mr. Underwood was seen outside the residence… Ms. Randolph’s brother and two of his friends saw Mr. Underwood in the alley outside Ms. Randolph’s bedroom window at two in the morning.” The filing said, “When he was confronted, Mr. Underwood sent harassing text messages to Randolph, Ms. Randolph’s best friend, Linda Salas, and Ms. Randolph’s younger brother. Since then, Mr. Underwood has been seen by Ms. Randolph’s family, neighbors and friends of the family hanging around Ms. Randolph’s family home in Huntington Beach and on the street near the home.”

As for his alleged unwelcomed visits to her L.A. apartment, the document claimed, “Mr. Underwood admitted to his roommate and his roommate’s girlfriend (who is also Ms. Randolph’s friend) that he goes on multiple walks a day to Ms. Randolph’s apartment building. Ms. Randolph and several of her friends have seen him around Ms. Randolph’s apartment from her balcony.”

Cassie requested that the restraining order be enforced before Underwood is back in Los Angeles after a visit to Denver. The filing said, “Ms. Randolph fears for her safety and the safety of her family and friends and wants to ensure that the harassment and stalking behavior cease when he returns to Los Angeles in the coming days.”

A judge has approved the restraining order, which means Colton must stay 100 yards away from Cassie at all times.

A hearing is set for October 6, the expiration date of the restraining order.

Colton and Cassie called it quits in May after two years of dating.

“Extra’s” own resident Bachelor expert Rachel Lindsay weighed in on the drama. She told Billy Bush, “It is surprising… It’s shocking anytime you hear someone is getting a restraining order filed against them… I don’t think we’ve had anything like this in Bachelor Nation before.”

“Extra” has reached out to Cassie and Colton. While we haven’t heard back from Cassie, Colton’s rep said, “We can’t comment at this time as it is a legal matter.”

Mailman Takes Selfies With Every Animal That He Befriends While On His Job (30 Pics)

Published

By

A mailman is a dog’s best friend. Sounds a bit odd? But who said that dogs necessarily don’t like mailmen? Sure, mailmen get special training to fend off attacks from canines, and it comes as a rule to avoid dogs if one can, but we all know what everyone says about rules. Something may be a rule, but there are always exceptions to every rule, and if there isn’t a rule to an exception, then one should look harder. However, exceptions are naturally hard to come by, and therefore it’s hard to even imagine that they exist. Yet once they’re found, they turn the rule into a plain stereotype. Let’s find an exception to challenge this stereotype in particular.

Take, for example, a guy from Sao Paulo, Brazil, Cristiano da Silva Antunes, who goes by the name of Carteiro Amigo Dos Animais on his social media, which neatly translates to “Animal-friendly postman.” He always wanted to break the stereotype that dogs hate postmen, and he does so successfully one picture at a time. And to prove that he’s a stand-up guy, he’s friendly to every animal that he meets, not only dogs. He says hello to the neighboring cats, rabbits, and all other kinds of animals.

And he’s not only there to showboat—he also has a mission. He often rescues animals that require immediate attention from veterinarians or shelters while he’s on his way. He even dreams of opening up his own animal shelter so he could help his little animal friends even more than he does right now (which is still a lot by any standards).

The process of befriending a dog, especially as a mailman, is hard and long. First, Cristiano greets them and acknowledges the dog, then lets them sniff his hand from a distance so the dogs can get to know him better. Over time, he approaches them more and more, until they’re close enough to lick his face.

It may come as no surprise that the animal-friendly postman owns a few dogs and three cats with his spouse. He says he’s been around dogs ever since his childhood, and that might explain why dogs greet him as one of their own. Or perhaps dogs are not as prejudiced towards mailmen as we initially thought? In any case, the amazing animal-friendly postman keeps charming his 87k fans and the whole wide world with a message that he delivers with every photo that he takes—”(this) mailman is a dog’s best friend.”

With A Simple Plan, Sam Raimi made his own Coen brothers film

Watch This offers movie recommendations inspired by new releases, premieres, current events, or occasionally just our own inscrutable whims. This week: The fourth season of FX’s small-screen Fargo starts, so we’re singling out “Coenesque” movies, i.e. ones influenced by or imitative of the work of those famous sibling filmmakers.


A Simple Plan (1998)

Between 1984 and 1986, one of the hippest places to hang out in Los Angeles might’ve been a three-bedroom house in Silver Lake, where brothers Joel and Ethan Coen lived with brothers Sam and Ivan Raimi, joined at various times by Frances McDormand (who found the place, and later married Joel), Holly Hunter, and Kathy Bates. At the time, Sam Raimi had written and directed the stylish and witty horror classic The Evil Dead, and the Coens had made the hip neo-noir Blood Simple. The latter pair had also contributed ideas to the screenplay for Raimi’s slapstick gangland picture Crimewave, and would later help shape his cult-favorite 1990 superhero movie Darkman. Raimi returned the favors by collaborating on the script for the Coens’ 1994 screwball comedy The Hudsucker Proxy. In a lot of ways, these guys were all fellow travelers.

As the ’90s progressed, however, the filmmakers’ paths began to diverge: Raimi kept making oddball hybrids of broad comedy and B-pictures (like Army Of Darkness and The Quick And The Dead), while his old roommates made movies that won prizes at major international film festivals. The Coens completed their assimilation into the Hollywood establishment with 1996’s Fargo, an arty and arch crime dramedy nominated for seven Oscars. Raimi then belatedly made his own unexpected play for respectability, accepting a last-minute fill-in assignment to direct an adaptation of Scott Smith’s acclaimed 1993 novel A Simple Plan, another thriller about ordinary people enticed by greed and need. The movie even shifts the setting of Smith’s book from Ohio to Minnesota, where Fargo is set (though the locations were actually picked by two of the directors previously attached to the project, Mike Nichols and John Boorman).

A Simple Plan is well-acted, atmospheric, and gripping. But what’s especially remarkable is how restrained it is, given who’s behind the camera. Even in the Coens’ more “serious” movies (like Fargo), there are loopy moments and eccentric characters. And most of Raimi’s post-Simple Plan pictures, like Drag Me To Hell and the Spider-Man trilogy, can get pretty gonzo. But Raimi eschews flashy camera moves in A Simple Plan, relying on precisely composed, mostly static medium and long shots—peppered with a lot of close-up reactions—to tell Smith’s story of two working-class brothers who find over four million dollars inside a downed airplane in the woods, and then have to resort to lying and violence to protect it.

Raimi’s approach lets the movie’s excellent cast carry its meaning. The late Bill Paxton gave the best performance of his career as Hank Mitchell, a feed-store manager who lives in a nice house with his pregnant wife Sarah (Bridget Fonda). Billy Bob Thornton—Oscar-nominated for this role—plays Hank’s mild-mannered screw-up of an older brother, Jacob, who can’t hold a job and spends most of his days drinking beer and cracking jokes with his bitter buddy Lou (Brent Briscoe). The twisty plot tracks how every choice the Mitchell brothers make gets them deeper into trouble, but the story is really about how Hank has always felt burdened by Jacob, and how Jacob resents Hank’s snobbery.

Like Fargo, A Simple Plan proceeds on a path with its own cruel logic, getting increasingly tense. But unlike those of his buddies the Coens, Raimi’s tastes lean more toward gory horror than literary pulp, which may be why his A Simple Plan has such an unforgiving heart. Both movies are chilling tales of people who feel trapped by their dead-end jobs and suffocating families. But where Fargo suggests that even a cold, gray Minnesota landscape can sometimes be warm and inviting, A Simple Plan sees its small town as an inescapable trap, in which no one ever flies away but only crashes.

Availability: A Simple Plan is available to stream on Starz. It can also be rented or purchased from Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, Microsoft, Redbox, and VUDU.

Stewart has never shied away from expressing her feelings towards the Trump administration.

“It’s obviously terrible what’s happening but at the same time, it feels good to be part of a wider female community that is finally standing up for itself, “she told Harper’s Bazaar in 2017. “I’ve never felt such a strong sense of community.”

Stewart and Meyer have been dating since last year after she split from model Stella Maxwell in 2018.
