Despite recent rumors that all is well between Bachelor in Paradise couple Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray, it sounds like their relationship is officially over — especially after an incident that happened between them last week. According to Us Weekly, Murray called police on Stanton about an argument over a car on March 20, and even though the issue has already been resolved, Stanton's thoughts on the situation seem to make it pretty clear that any sort of relationship between them is a thing of the past.
As the site reported, Murray wanted Stanton to give him $30,000 for an Audi Q5 that he'd bought her in October, but she wanted to wait until her vacation was over to figure the situation out, so he reportedly called the police the day she got back. Murray's assistant, Hayley Watts, claimed that she and an officer were there "trying to make a peaceful exchange" of the car keys that night. Bustle has reached out to Murray for comment, but did not receive a response at the time of publication.
The Irvine Police PIO — who said they were responding to a "keep the peace" call — told Us Weekly:
Stanton talked to Us Weekly about what happened, as well, and her side of the story makes it very clear that their relationship has definitely ended.
Watts and Stanton also talked to E! News about the ordeal, and according to Watts' version, Stanton was given the option of either financing the car herself or giving it back, and instead, Watts claims, she said she'd need to be ordered by a judge to give it back. Watts also claims Stanton body-shamed her when she showed up with police. Stanton told the site that what Watts said was a lie and claimed that Murray doesn't even have a personal assistant, so this entire situation sounds like one giant mess.
Earlier this year, rumors that Stanton and Murray were reuniting surfaced after they were spotted out together in Los Angeles, and in March, Murray even told Bustle that they were still talking. But according to Stanton, that isn't what's happening now, and she even tweeted to point out that she hadn't yet spoken on the state of their relationship.
Funny how these articles keep coming out from different outlets...& no one has noticed that I have yet to speak 🤔 https://t.co/0YN6zYZL3z— Amanda Stanton (@amandastantonnn) March 14, 2017
As they navigate their lives post-engagement, hopefully, they run into less messy situations in the future. Stanton has her adorable daughters to focus on from here on out.
