Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton may have broken off their Bachelor in Paradise romance, but that doesn’t mean the drama between them is over.
Reports say that Murray called the police on Stanton in an effort to get back a car he had bought for her, and his personal assistant, Hayley Watts, confirmed that to In Touch Weekly.
Murray bought the Audi Q5 for Stanton in October and has been asking her to pay him back $30,000 for the car.
“Amanda told Josh she wanted to work out the car situation when she got back from vacation,” a source said. “But instead of waiting any longer, he called the police the day she got home!”
Stanton’s ex-husband, Nick Buonfiglio, said he helped Stanton buy a new car the next day since she was left without any transportation for herself and her two daughters.
“What Josh did was horrible,” Buonfiglio added. “This whole thing shows Josh’s true character.”
But Watts, Murray’s assistant, claims she was there and says that’s not how the situation went down at all.
“First, Josh did not call the police in any way that would treat her as a criminal or have charges filed against her,” she explained. “A peace officer was simply requested to accompany me as Josh’s assistant to peacefully ask Amanda for the car and keys without disrupting the peace, as the law requires, and to protect me from any threats of harm.”
Watts also said that Murray had given Stanton avenues to legally buy the car, but that Stanton said she was “not buying the vehicle from Josh and not making the remaining payments,” and she had openly refused to return the car unless a judge ordered her to.
Watts also claimed that Stanton personally attacked her for being there when the car was taken back.
“I was shocked and embarrassed when Amanda berated me in front of her daughter and attempted to body shame me for no reason,” Watts said. “I was only trying to keep the situation peaceful. Disrespecting me as a human being simply because my figure is different from her body was not necessary, as body shaming is very hurtful and demeaning.”
