"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," she continued. "To the persons that did this to Jordan, myself, our relationship, the show, our families, and our fans, Justice is coming to you."
"To anyone who has had people callously, maliciously and falsely attempt to destroy all that you Love, this is for you too," Jenna said. "I look forward to returning to a place of happiness, joy, moving forward with Jordan, and life..knowing that everyone knows the truth."
Jenna and Jordan's breakup has been the talk of Bachelor Nation, as the pair's relationship exploded just hours after their engagement aired on Paradise's season five finale on Tuesday. Just before the Paradise finale, a Reality Steve report claimed Jenna had been cheating on Jordan, and posted screenshots of text messages allegedly between Jenna and another man. On Wednesday morning, Jordan announced on Instagram that he had ended their relationship.
"I got played," Jordan said. "It's looking like I got played, and once you got played, the last thing you want to do is get fooled as well."
The Bachelorette standout did, however, reveal that he "forgives" Jenna, and said that he's open to meeting up with her.
"I feel like we went through a lot together, and we had a milestone in each other's lives," Jordan expressed. "I gave her my heart. I thought she gave me hers, and I feel like we owe each other that closure, to see each other and talk in person."
