Tea time! Bachelor in Paradise alum Jordan Kimball responded to his ex Jenna Cooper writing a tell-all book about their scandalous split that was surrounded in cheating allegations. The couple got engaged at the end of season 5 only to quickly fizzle out after leaked text messages allegedly from Jenna revealed that she faked her relationship with the male model.
“I’m not entertaining anything she says,” Jordan confessed exclusively to Life & Style. “It’s almost been a year and she is still at it. What a nightmare. I never threw a stone at her but she uses terms such as ‘bullying.”‘
Talking about her latest project, his ex revealed to Us Weekly on Wednesday, May 29, that she is “no longer under contract, and I am ready to share the details. I know America has heard some of the obnoxious lies about me from Bachelor Nation’s most thirsty contestants and gossip blogs. But now it’s my turn. I have gone to great lengths to prove that all of these accusations were false.” She added, “I hope that it will inspire other women to stand up for themselves despite being victimized and bullied.”
Back when their season concluded, Reality Steve released text messages that were supposedly between Jenna and her boyfriend from before, during and after Paradise. The messages allegedly from the North Carolina native said that her relationship with Jordan was “all for her business” and they “aren’t together for real.” There were also several sexually explicit messages.
Jenna has since gone on the defensive and claimed that the messages were fake. “Please stand by as I prepare to provide the true facts that will demonstrate the fraud perpetrated by terrible individuals,” she said in her first statement after the messages were leaked. “And to Jordan, I am sorry that horrible people have used fabricated, hateful efforts to come between us. I promise you that the truth will be set free in the coming weeks and it will unquestionably be to your satisfaction.”
After that, she feverishly worked to get a “forensic analysis” of the text messages in question. “Obviously, like I already knew … the forensic analysis of my electronic devices and iCloud account prove that the fraudulent text messages posted by ‘Reality’ Steve were not mine,” she said on October 1 after having her phone “analyzed” the week prior.
“There is growing and compelling evidence pointing to who was behind this attack on me, and it is very sad,” she continued. “Given the legal issues and ongoing investigation, I am delaying posting the forensic data until the investigation is fully completed. One thing is for sure, there is a huge twist and it is killing me keeping it quiet while the investigation is completed. You WILL be hearing more about this in the next few weeks, but I am going to attempt to start moving on with my life.” Jenna’s team eventually released statements about the report in October.
Besides releasing a shady email that was supposedly from Jenna’s lawyers, Jordan never fueled the drama further. Although the reality starlet said during an Instagram Live in November that she “cannot apologize for something I didn’t do,” she admitted, “Maybe I didn’t handle the situation right.”
Time will tell what unfolds!
