Randolph, 25, filed a restraining order against the 28-year-old reality star on Friday in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.

Furthermore, Randolph reportedly claims Underwood has been showing up unannounced not only to her Los Angeles apartment complex but to her parents’ home in nearby Huntington Beach, Calif. where he is said to have loitered outside the complex and her bedroom at her parents’ residence at 2 a.m.

She added that the experience had actually brought them much closer.
"The last 2 years I’ve been thrust into a spotlight after living a fairly normal life.

"I used to think a platform would give me a voice, but in many ways a platform takes your voice. For someone like me it’s been paralyzing."
