Andi Dorfman Calls Josh Murray “the Most F—ked Up Relationship of My Life”
Ooh boy, this is going to be good!
In the sneak peek given to Us Weekly, the 29-year-old former Bachelorette calls the nine-month engagement to her Season 10 winner “the most volatile and f—ked up relationship of my life” — and for good reason.
Apparently, Andi initially lied to Josh about whether or not she slept with fellow finalist Nick Viall on Bachelorette, worrying it’d be “over.” When she finally came clean prior to the episode, he struggled between being upset over her having sex with someone else and her lying.
“Several more apologies later, it became clear the issue was about my having sex with someone else,” she writes. “That one sexual escapade would become a power play used by my fiancé to justify his mistrust in me. It would be an excuse to call me a ‘whore.’ And it would eventually lead to the demise of my engagement.”
Yeesh! And it doesn’t end there. The former assistant district attorney says she and her ex also argued constantly over her desire to return to work, which he called “selfish,” and her friendships with other men.
One pivotal moment in their doomed engagement came during a trip to NYC in September 2014, when the reality star gave back her 3-carat Neil Lane ring.
“Alone in a random church, I cradled my head in my hands and began to sob,” she recalls. “For the first time, I thought, I don’t think we’re going to make it.”
She continues, “It wasn’t until [our plane took off] that he leaned into me and whispered in my ear that he was sorry. I looked at him only to find tears rolling down his face. I had never seen him cry. Without hesitation, I wrapped my arms around him and began crying as well. It had been one of the worst fights we’d ever had, but I wasn’t ready to lose him.”
For his part, Josh has seemingly responded to these early snippets in two forms: via an official statement and a thinly-veiled tweet.
The statement simply reads, “It saddens me and is very unfortunate that Andi has chosen to characterize me in such a negative way. I pray she finds peace.”
And that tweet?
