'Bachelor in Paradise' star Amanda Stanton gets arrested for domestic battery
Amanda Stanton was out partying at a co-ed bachelorette party with her boyfriend Bobby Jacobs when things went down between her and security.
One of the most fan-favorite contestants from 'Bachelor' and 'Bachelor in Paradise' — Amanda Stanton — has been arrested for domestic battery after a drunken incident with her boyfriend, which took place post a bachelorette party. And while everything about the sentence might sound ironic, it's almost like things keep on adding to Amanda's list of woes as this was the third year in a row that she failed to find love on the reality TV show.
As per sources' account to TMZ, Amanda was partying with friends at The Encore for a bachelorette event with members of both the sexes present. Her boyfriend, Bobby Jacobs was in attendance too, and everybody was celebrating the occasion in one of the rooms at the hotel. Law enforcement told the outlet that security arrived at the room for a noise complaint and Bobby was speaking to the guards when his girlfriend, Amanda, in a drunken demeanor tried to intervene and ended up shoving him in the process.
The said shove was hard enough for hotel security to alarm the cops, following which Amanda got arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence. She was, however, released on Monday. Sources close to her have also informed the outlet that she and Bobby are still together, and both believe that something — presumably a drug — was slipped into her drink.
While there has been no word from Bobby or Amanda regarding the incident, looks like things aren't really going right for her the third year in a row. She was known to be a favorite on Ben Higgins' season of 'The Bachelor,' where she finished fourth, and even on the third season of 'Bachelor in Paradise,' she got engaged to Josh Murray, but things didn't turn out in her favor on there either.
And even while Higgins and Murray weren't exactly the dream-fit for the mother-of-two, Amanda did go ahead into this season of 'Bachelor in Paradise' with high hopes of finally finding the one. In her own words, she believed the right guys would be there for her this time, not just fame.
But even though the show's progress saw her getting comfy with 'The Bachelorette' runner-up Robby Hayes (from JoJo Fletcher's season), and even though she eventually ended up falling for the social media influencer, things took an unsuspecting turn when she ended things with him the very next week.
There was a lot of soul-searching on her part, and Hayes did his fair share of trying to convince her too, which led her to give it a shot in the real world for once and for all. The final result? Negative. Following that, she shared in an interview with Glamour her disappointment over failing at finding love even with the proverbial charm of a third time, and also shared that she's done with the show.
