Bachelorette Andi Dorfman Claims Ex-Fiancé Josh Murray Was Emotionally Abusive

To Bachelorette viewers, season 10 couple Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray were perfect for each other. Dorfman thought so, too. “I was 100 percent sure I’d spend my life with him.”

After their season of the ABC hit ended, the couple was engaged for nine months, before splitting in January 2015. 

In a new interview with Us Weekly, Dorfman says that things took a turn after they left the limelight of reality TV cameras. She even claims that Murray was verbally abusive throughout their relationship, often calling her a “bitch” or a “whore” during particularly intense arguments.

Dorfman also shared an excerpt of her upcoming book, It’s Not Ok, in which she describes the relationship as “the most volatile and fucked up relationship of my life.”

Murray responded to Dorfman’s allegations in his own statement to the mag, denying her claims against him. “It saddens me and is very unfortunate that Andi has chosen to characterize me in such a negative way. I pray she finds peace.” 

For those of you looking to hear more of Dorfman’s side of the story, It’s Not Ok drops later this month.
