Based on a number of explosive text messages, it’s apparent that Jenna Cooper was taking some other guy’s big, throbbing you-know-what into her mouth, even while she was romancing Jordan Kimball on Bachelor in Paradise.
But no huge matter, Kimball now says.
He wants to be the bigger person.
Appearing on Reality Steve’s podcast yesterday, Kimball spoke at length about the scandal that continues to rock Bachelor in Paradise.
On Tuesday night, just as Jordan was proposing to Jenna on the Season 5 finale of this series, exchanges between Cooper and an unidentified man were being read online.
These exchanges were rather explicit in nature and they certainly made it appear as if Cooper had been lying to Kimball throughout their televised courtship.
Simply put, the exchanges included Jenna describing to this man just what she wanted to do to him, in a sexual sense.
Reality Steve published these texts and said the man sent them to him because he was sick of Jenna “manipulating” him.”
Cooper has denied cheating.
Kimball has ended their engagement.
And here we are now.
“I’m remaining extremely civil,” the 26-year old told Steve on his podcast, adding:
“In the most uncomfortable way, I am here for her because she is really going through a tough time.
“I have forgiven her, and it hurts me to even have to forgive her because that means that I’ve accepted that this has happened.”
Wow. That’s rather mature of Jordan, wouldn’t you say?
Kimball has remained very candid about the (alleged) cheating, saying he felt sick to his stomach when he read the above text message and that he’s extremely hurt by any accusation that he faked his loved for the camera.
He says the relationship was real from his end.
He was truly in love with Cooper.
And perhaps that explains why he still can’t bring himself to wish harm upon her.
“I think it’s awful,” he said on the podcast about all the vitriol coming Jenna’s way online. “I don’t think anyone deserves that.”
But does he think Jenna was sleeping around on him? Oh yes.
“She’s just been denying it,” Kimball said of his discussion this week with Jenna, adding:
“She’s been telling me that she’s going to prove it all wrong. And she’s asked me if I’m going to be there for her, and I’m like, ‘Look, you’ve got to prove it wrong first.’”
Prior to this quote, Jordan had admitted that he thinks Jenna is guilty:
“When I read these texts, I can hear her voice saying it. The structure of the speaking and the facts this gentlemen has about her…it’s scary. It gives me chills.”
Still, Cooper remains adamant.
Not only does she continue to say she never cheated on Kimball, she has hired an attorney to try and get to the source of the text messages, which she insists she did not send.
This is what Jenna wrote on Instagram yesterday, as she rushed to her own defense:
I want to start by saying those texts were completely fabricated, and I never sent them to anyone. 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.
Do you believe her?
