Bachelor in Paradise star Amanda Stanton has recently found herself in some legal trouble. Not only did police arrest her for domestic abuse earlier this week, but she has also been hit with two financial lawsuits this year.
According to court papers from Orange County Superior Court, Discover Bank sued Stanton for nearly $1,400 in unpaid credit card debt. The company filed the complaint in May and claims that Stanton has never made a payment on the credit card purchases and cash advances.
However, when the court attempted to serve Stanton at her apartment in Irvine, California, they didn’t have any luck. During the first attempt, Stanton buzzed the Process Server into the building, but when they knocked, she refused to answer the door.

The Process Server continued to try to hit Stanton with the filing multiple times, with court records revealing there were attempts on May 24, May 29, June 3, June 7, July 4, July 6, and July 9, but they didn’t have any luck.
According to Radar Online, they were finally able to serve Stanton on August 1st, and the case is still pending.
Before Discover Bank sued her, Stanton also faced legal action — along with her ex-fiancé Josh Murray — from Centerpointe Spectrum Apartments, for failure to pay rent. The plaintiff claimed that Stanton and Murray signed a 14-month lease on September 30, 2016, for a monthly rental amount of $3,900. Then, it increased to $5,070 on September 5, 2017.
On March 5, 2018, after failing to pay one month’s rent of $5,070, the apartment complex served them with a 3-day notice to pay rent or quit. Stanton and Murray split in February 2017, so he didn’t appear to be living there at the time of the notice.
Along with the past due rent, Centerpointe Spectrum is asking for attorney fees, forfeiture of the agreement, and other miscellaneous fees totaling $142.95. The landlord had also filed a complaint to recover possession of the apartment. They served Stanton and Murray notice back in March, along with a judgment against them and a notice to vacate.
The court eventually disposed of the case in April.
As for her domestic battery charges, Las Vegas police arrested Stanton on September 10th for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend, Bobby Jacobs. After a night of drinking at a bachelorette party, a physical altercation took place in her hotel room, and when hotel security became aware of the situation, they called the police.
“Amanda is embarrassed and ashamed this happened and sincerely apologizes to hotel security and the Las Vegas Police Department. Amanda is a gentle, respectful person who has never gotten physical with anyone under any circumstance,” Amanda Stanton’s rep said in a statement.
