AceShowbiz - Jenna Cooper and Jordan Kimball were a happy couple the last time Bachelor Nations saw in Tuesday, September 11 finale of "Bachelor in Paradise". However, just a day after the episode, it is revealed that the pair have broken up following reports on Reality Steve's blog that Jenna is cheating on Jordan with another man.
"Jenna is a manipulator. She manipulated me. She manipulates the other guys she ‘networks’ with and is apparently manipulating this Jordan guy," according to the blog post, a man alleges. "She uses men for money and business help and loves the attention along the way. And she just loves to rub in your face that she’s pretty and everyone wants her and how she can easily move onto the next. I’m tired of the bullshit and am calling her out."
The post also attached some graphic text messages allegedly between Jenna and the unidentified man. In the text messages, Jenna could be seen trying to assure the man that she and Jordan "aren't together for real," before adding, "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."

Following the report, Jordan announces that he decides to end things between him and Jenna, saying to Entertainment Weekly, "I'm removing myself from the relationship with intentions to take care of myself and find my happiness." Jordan, however, adds that he wants to be respectful for Jenna. "I will not lash out, I will not try to convince people that she is a bad person. You will not see me pursue any kind of vengeance on her. I care about Jenna."
"Everyone saw me fall at first sight for her and I will never deny that. Just because this has happened does not mean that I will discount how I felt for her. I will not try to play it off that it doesn't hurt," Jordan continues. "I would be doing the love that I felt for her an injustice if I were to say that I didn’t feel strongly about this."
He reveals that Jenna has told him the whole text messages are fake, though Jordan refuses to remain "in limbo" by still getting together with Jenna. "I just can't wait and hold on to see if this is fake. I allowed myself to be played, but I will not allow myself to be fooled by this. If this turns out to be fake, then hey, it's a good thing that I didn't lash out at her," Jordan says. "But I cannot take a chance with my heart."
Jordan recalled that he never doubts Jenna's feelings for her. "I really thought that she was reciprocating that and I thought that I can see it," Jordan explains. "Sometimes your eyes tell yourself what the heart wants to hear. Maybe that's what happened. I'm not sure. If this was proven fake, maybe I wasn't lying to myself."
Jordan reveals that he's focusing on taking care of himself and his broken heart amid the drama. "I've got to act on what my intuition tells me, I've got to act on what my emotions tell me. And this right now is what's right for me. I have to let this go," he says.
Jenna, meanwhile, denies the allegations in a statement to 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."

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.
Taking to Instagram, she insists that "those texts were completely fabricated, and I never sent them to anyone." Jenna adds, "I did not cheat on Jordan, and I have nothing to hide. I have been extremely open and vulnerable throughout this whole process."
