He’s Known Cassie For Five Years
Brighton and Cassie have apparently been close friends for five years and hung out frequently.

News. “They recently have become more serious and are dating.”
He Supported Cassie Through Her Colton Drama
Brighton was reportedly there by Cassie’s side as she filed a restraining order against Colton in September 2020 for allegedly harassing and stalking her; Colton has denied the accusations. Some fans believe that Brighton referenced the ordeal in his song “Creep,” featuring m0mmasboy, which debuted in January. These are the lyrics to the first verse:
“You can’t stop thinking about my baby / What once was yours in the world is changing / God, I hope you get your thinking right / GPS on the underside / Told her everything will be just fine / Damn, I can’t believe these guys.”
He’s Met Cassie’s Family
Brighton was recently spotted hanging with Cassie’s family in Huntington Beach, California, and it looked like things were going swimmingly. The twosome were hanging out at the Shorebreak Hotel with Cassie’s sister, Michelle Randolph, and Michelle’s boyfriend, Runaways star Gregg Sulkin. Double date? “Things are going well and her family likes him a lot,” according to E! News’ source. “They like to do low key things and love to be by the beach and cook at home. Cassie is really happy and in a good place.”
He Loves To Cook
Brighton frequently posts videos and photos of his cooking to Instagram. One of his meals, stuffed pineapples, was even reposted by Cassie, who was clearly served the delicious eats on May 2. She simply said “wow.” He also cooked some pretty expert looking dumplings.
