Demi Burnett says Cassie Randolph won't reveal why she broke up with Colton Underwood.
Demi has asked Cassie "like 50 times."
Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph publicly announced their breakup back in May, and neither of them has revealed the "real reason" they split—not even to their friends. Bachelor in Paradise star Demi Burnett—who is close with Cassie—recently said the reality star won't share details of her breakup, despite being asked multiple times. Which, I mean, fair enough.
“I probably asked her like 50 times, ‘Why’d you guys break up?’ She would not talk about it. She is so respectful of that privacy they had,” Demi said during the Chicks in the Office podcast. "She had nothing bad to say about him. She cried at one point and she was just like, ‘It’s really hard.’ I know she cares about him so much. I don’t even know what happened.”
She also criticized Colton for "getting mad" that Cassie spoke about their breakup on The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons—Ever!. “I think that’s ridiculous because she didn’t even say anything about the relationship at all. I think he was just, like, being petty and trying to get a reaction out of her. But, I was really proud of her for what she said on her [Instagram] Story.”
As a reminder, Colton hit Instagram to imply Cassie had broken their agreement not to talk about the breakup in public, saying, “When our relationship ended, we agreed to handle things as privately as possible as we attempted to navigate our new relationship as friends. I chose to do that since we were living in this interim period, but obviously a lot changed this week.”
These last few weeks have been challenging because, by now, you all know I’m an open book and I enjoy sharing my life with y’all. When our relationship ended we agreed to handle things as privately as possible as we attempted to navigate our new relationship as friends. I chose to do that since we were living in this interim period, but obviously a lot changed this week. Every experience provides us with an opportunity for growth. If you’ve been kind enough to have followed our story you’ve been with us through all of the ups and downs which have taught me so many lessons. I’ve come to realize when you’re in the thick of it you just need to take a step back and look at things from a different perspective, in doing so I have gained so much clarity about what I want and more importantly what I need in a relationship. I’m so excited for this next chapter of my life with new stories and new people. I can’t thank y’all enough for your understanding and your support during this time. Your messages mean a lot!

Cassie responded with, “I would like to state that I do not wish to create an online petty war.... Colton, your last Instagram post saddened me but also left me frustrated. It seems you are subtly engaging in a tactic that peppers in aggressive comments such as ‘that obviously changed this week’ in order to make me look like the bad one.”
She then accused him of trying to monetize their breakup:
“On Monday evening, you informed me you intend to monetize our breakup by writing a new chapter to discuss your experience with COVID (where you stayed in my family’s house during your recovery & about our breakup),” she wrote. “You have also refused to give me any sort of approval on the chapter you will be writing, which will heavily feature me...This seems a bit unfair to me. Colton, you can do what you want, but please do not have a double standard.”
