This isn’t over yet! Just last week, we watched them get engaged on the Bachelor in Paradise finale, but on Sept. 12, Jordan Kimball revealed that he decided to break up with Jenna Cooper following shocking cheating allegations and leaked texts that seem to show that she was using him for attention. But now, Jenna took to Instagram to release a lengthy statement defending herself, and she hinted that the couple is trying to work through their issues amid her alleged cheating scandal.
“To Jordan, our families, friends, and supporters: please stand by as I prepare to provide the true facts that will demonstrate the fraud perpetrated by terrible individuals,” Jenna wrote.
“And to Jordan, I am sorry that horrible people have used fabricated, hateful efforts to come between us,” she continued. “I promise you that the truth will be set free in the coming weeks, and it will unquestionably be to your satisfaction. I look forward to returning to a place of happiness, joy, moving forward with Jordan, and life..knowing that everyone knows the truth.”
Fans first started to speculate that there was trouble in paradise when Jordan and Jenna were both radio silent during the finale. They didn’t post loving pics after their proposal like every other couple, and they didn’t respond to requests for comment. Jenna eventually publicly denied the claims against her, but Jordan had already removed all of their photos together. The next day, he posted a lengthy message on Instagram, confirming their split.
“When you’re in love with even the experiences you’ve had with them, it’s something to respect,” he wrote. “Being careless with someone that you give your heart to and reach milestones with isn’t sensible, no matter what the terms may be.”
Jordan went on to describe that though he hasn’t had an easy life, he knows how to deal with problems, and he made the tough decision in this case. “I have come to terms with a decision to remove myself from the relationship,” he said. “It breaks my heart to think, feel, and fall for this. It’s dropped me. Fumbling emotions and being understanding is not easy.”
Jordan says that he’s taking some time to himself, hopes to “find peace”, and promises that “she will always have me to talk to.”
For her part, Jenna insists she didn’t do anything wrong. “I want to start by saying those texts were completely fabricated, and I never sent them to anyone,” she wrote. “I did not cheat on Jordan, and I have nothing to hide. I have been extremely open and vulnerable throughout this whole process. I was looking for love, and I found it. I was excited to share this journey with all of you. I am hurt by these fake texts, and that anyone would believe this story so quickly without proof. I have an attorney helping me investigate this hurtful and fraudulent attack on my character. We are evaluating all legal remedies available to punish those responsible.”
Despite where things stand between Jordan and Jenna, it seems like Jordan has the support of all of his Bachelor Nation friends. “We got your back. Always,” wrote Kevin Wendt. Colton Underwood also sent his love, writing, “Love you bro.” BIP bartender Wells Adams said, “I’ve always got your back and if you need a drink, I got you.” Bekah Martinez wrote, “You are a shining star. We all love you a ton. You are strong and brave and honest, and you deserve a woman who will see that. Chris Randone, Jade Tolbert, Chelsea Roy, DeMario Jackson, Leo Dottavio, Connor Obrochta, and more chimed in as well, proving that Jordan has so much love and support behind him in this tough time.
