Amanda Stanton's ex-husband Nick Buonfiglio admits he's extremely relieved the mother of his two kids has split from fiance Josh Murray.
Buonfiglio, the father of Kinsley, 4, and Charlie, 2, is glad Murray is out of the picture in his daughters' lives, Us Weeklyreported.
"Thank God he's gone from them!" Buonfiglio, whose divorce from Stanton was finalized in June 2015, told Us.
Buonfiglio and Stanton recently went to battle in court over his desire for increased custody of the girls as well as a decrease in the amount he pays for child support. He won since she's more financially stable thanks to Stanton's two stints on reality TV shows.
According to an insider, Murray got upset and left Stanton at the concert because he caught her in a lie when their Bachelor in Paradise co-star, Ashley Iaconetti, disclosed a story about how the girls had been drinking together during a recent trip to Tahoe.
"Ashley said to Amanda in Josh's presence, 'We haven't been this drunk since Tahoe!' Then Josh got mad and said, 'You told me you didn't drink in Tahoe!'" the insider recalled to Us, adding that Murray kept tabs on Stanton when she was away.
Sources close to Josh, however, say his argument with Stanton sparked over something "nasty" and disrespectful the mother of two had whispered in his ear at the concert.
The reality TV couple broke up the next day, according to TMZ, and Murray has since moved out of Stanton's Orange County, CA, and back to Atlanta, GA.
Murray appeared to develop a strong bond with Stanton's daughters as the pair was struggling to navigate their relationship in the real world after Paradise.
The former pro baseball player hinted about the break-up on Friday, December 16 by posting a photo on Instagram of Kinsley and himself with the following caption: "I will always love this precious little angel."
Once news broke of the pair's split earlier this week, E! News reported that Murray and Stanton called it quits due to his "temper," which was a concern for Stanton's friends while filming Bachelor in Paradise, including the franchise's upcoming The Bachelor star Nick Viall.
The Paradise cast grew concerned about Murray's romantic pursuit of Stanton, who had been known as America's sweetheart, because his ex-fiancee Andi Dorfman had accused Murray in her first memoir of being verbally abusive and controlling, claims of which the former pro baseball player slammed as "ludicrous" and "fiction."
