Murray, 32, allegedly asked Stanton, 26, to give him $30,000 to pay off the Audi Q5 he bought for her in October.
“Amanda told Josh she wanted to work out the car situation when she got back from vacation,” a source told In Touch. “But instead of waiting any longer, he called the police the day she got home.”
Stanton explained how she offered to take over the car payments when Andi Dorfman’s ex-fiancé demanded she pay.
“He wanted to go to the DMV the next day, but I was going out of town and told him we could handle when I got back,” Stanton explained to Us Weekly. “He said ‘OK’ and we were going to handle it on Tuesday.“
But when she got home, police were at her door.
“I was very cooperative and gave them the keys right away,” the mother-of-two continued. “If anything, it was just weird that he called the police when he didn’t have to. We don’t talk anymore. I don’t know why this had to happen. I thought once we cut our ties and he had his car back we’d be done with each other.”
The Irvine Police PIO told the website, “No arrests were made. There was no criminal activity of any sort. I was there with a police officer trying to make a peaceful exchange trying to receive the car keys from Amanda.”
Murray proposed to Stanton on Bachelor in Paradise despite disapproval from their co-stars. They ended their engagement in December 2016.
As Radar exclusively reported in December, Stanton had been footing the bill for their $3,9000 monthly rent when they lived together, as she checked “no” when asked if Murray “paid some of the household expenses.”
The dispute doesn’t come as a shock to Bachelor Nation, as Dorfman slammed Murray in her tell-all book It’s Not Okay by calling him “controlling” and an “abuser.”
