So much for paradise. Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton’s seemingly picture-perfect relationship came to an end after the couple got into a fight at KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball earlier this month, a source tells Us Weekly. According to the insider, Murray got upset and left Stanton at the concert after learning that the mother-of-two had been drinking during a recent girls trip to Tahoe with their Bachelor in Paradise costar Ashley Iaconetti.
“Ashley said to Amanda in Josh’s presence, ‘We haven’t been this drunk since Tahoe!’ Then Josh got mad and said, ‘You told me you didn’t drink in Tahoe!’” the insider recalls to Us.
The source adds that during the Tahoe trip, Murray constantly checked in with Stanton.
“He needed to talk to her at all times to keep tabs on what she was doing,” the source adds, noting that at Jingle Ball “Josh felt disrespected when he heard that Amanda was drunk in Tahoe, so he left her there alone.” (TMZ was first to report about their fight.)
According to a second insider, things had been rocky for the couple, who got engaged during the September season 3 finale of Bachelor in Paradise, for a while.
“I know Josh had been unhappy with things for a while now but was holding on because he loves the kids,” another source told Us, referring to Stanton’s two daughters Kinsley and Charlie. “But they're done now.”
Murray, who had previously been living with Stanton and the girls in California, has since moved back to Atlanta.
