Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray’s romance is over, and it might just be because he was a freeloader in the relationship.
According to court papers, ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ star Murray failed to contribute to the house expenses, depending on his fiancé to pay them all by herself.
The court papers prove that Stanton fought back against her ex Nicholas Buonfiglio, who demanded a judge reduce his $2,000 monthly child support payments for their two daughters Kinsley, 4, and Charlie, 2.
Buonfiglio said that her “lifestyle and income has dramatically changed” and that she earns “well over $20,000 to $30,000 per month.”
However, Stanton insisted that the average income was only $6,864 and she has to pay over $11,729 monthly by herself in household expenses despite sharing the space with Murray.
Although she claimed his monthly income is $10,000, she checked “no” when asked if he “pays some of the household expenses.”
Stanton explained that she spends $3,900 in monthly rent, $2,750 in child care, $500 in groceries and household expenses, $1000 on entertainment, gifts and vacations, and more.
When asked the amount of expenses paid by others, she wrote “zero.”
However, in the end, Buonfiglio’s child support fee was reduced to $530 a month.
Stanton and Murray’s relationship has been controversial since the very beginning. Murray’s former fiancée Andi Dorfman portrayed him as “controlling” and an “abuser” in her book It’s Not Okay. Furthermore, even Stanton’s co-workers warned her to stay away from him on Bachelor in Paradise.
However she did not listen and in the end accepted his marriage proposal and allowed him to move into her house.
On Friday Stanton tweeted: “Never mistake someone’s kindness for weakness,” as a clue about the divorce.
Shortly after, Murray posted a video of his things in his car and a photo of him holding Stanton’s daughter Kinsley, with the caption: “I will always love this precious little angel.”
