Jenna and Jordan got engaged onBachelor in Paradise's fifth season, but he broke up with her just one day after the finale aired due to a series of leaked text messages appearing to show Jenna was romantically involved with another man all summer long and had been dating Jordan just for money and fame.
"I want to start by saying those texts were completely fabricated, and I never sent them to anyone," Jenna captioned a photo of herself on Instagram in which she looked somber.
Not only did the woman appearing to be Jenna bash Jordan in the messages obtained by Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone by saying she's better than him and doesn't even like Jordan -- nevermind love him -- but she also wrote some graphic sexual things to this unidentified man.
"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," Jenna continued in her denial on Instagram.
"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."
Prior to releasing this statement on Instagram, Jenna told People, "I am aware of the allegations being made against me and they are simply untrue. I am choosing to focus on my relationship right now. Thank you for respecting my privacy at this time."
In the screenshots Carbone posted on his blog, Jenna allegedly wrote to the man from North Carolina, her hometown, that she was "so excited" to see him and things were going to get "real kinky" that night.
She also told the man that she loved him.
The following morning, Jenna allegedly wrote to the man: "Good morning, handsome! I wanted to say sorry. Don't be mad at me or anything crazy. I know you're upset about this week's episodes but I told you yesterday and I keep telling you that this is all for my business. You know how much I need the money. Me and Jordan aren't together for real. I don't even like him let alone love him."
"I'm better than him and once I'm able to, I'll break it off for good and make up some story to make him look bad if it'll make you feel better. He means nothing to me and never has," she continued.
"None of the other guys I go out with mean anything. All for work and networking. You're the only one I need in my life. The only guy who interests me. I need you to love me and always be there for me. I'm gonna call you. You still love me?!!!"
Carbone said he verified the text messages had derived from Jenna's phone number and the fitness and fashion blogger is "a complete fraud."
"I know my Jenna, and I read those texts and in my heart, I know it's her," Jordan admitted to People. "She was saying she didn't do it, but hinting towards the fact that there's a possibility that it happened. In all reality, I don't expect her to own it."
Jordan has said the situation makes him "sick to [his] stomach," as he was sincerely in love with Jenna and looking forward to their June 2019 wedding.
