It looks like there is trouble after Paradise for Amanda Stanton. Since confirming her engagement to Josh Murray on the season finale of Bachelor in Paradise, the 26-year-old mother of two is now battling her ex-husband for custody of her two children.
Four days prior to Stanton’s big engagement reveal on television, her ex-husband, Nick Buonfiglio, filed documents seeking more time with their two daughters, Kinsley, 4, and Charlie, 2, according to Radar Online.
According to the documents, Stanton’s ex is coming after her for spending time on The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise. He reportedly criticized her for appearing on “multiple TV shows.”
The papers also reportedly claim Buonfiglio feels Stanton has “been scrutinized for how she has acted by hundreds of thousands of fans.” He went on to say, “It has put my daughters in tons of media attention, which I believe is causing harm.”
Buonfiglio also addressed how appearing on The Bachelor and BiP has increased Stanton’s income. He goes on to say, “To add to that, Amanda’s lifestyle and income has dramatically changed,” claiming that Stanton’s income has risen to “well over $20,000 to $30,000 per month,” thanks to her growing fame and social media accounts.
Buonfiglio admitted to struggling financially to provide his ex with child support of “$2000 a month.” According to the documents, Buonfiglio claims, “She said, ‘Take me to court if you want more time.’ Which I am doing.”
Since announcing her plans to marry Murray, Stanton has shared multiple photos of her fellow Bachelor in Paradise star bonding with her daughters. Despite the custody drama, Murray and Stanton recently took a trip to Disneyland to celebrate their engagement. Murray even posted a photo pushing the girls in a stroller with the caption “#DadLife.”
