One day after the show reunion, news broke that Cooper, 29, had reportedly cheated on Kimball, 26, and used their relationship to promote her business! In shocking texts, a person who appeared to be her was seen telling a man that she did not love Kimball, and was simply playing a game.
Now, Cooper is doing everything in her power to prove her alleged innocence—even though her fiancé believed she’s guilty.
“It felt like a body drop,” Kimball told PEOPLE after learning of the allegations. “I got taken down. I’m weak in the knees and I feel like I have rocks in my stomach.”
He added that he spoke to Cooper and has reason to believe she cheated.
“I know my Jenna, and I read those texts and in my heart, I know it’s her,” he shared. “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.”
Still, Cooper insists she is innocent.
“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,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of herself.
“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,” she continued.
Cooper was so shocked by the criticism that came towards her after the alleged infidelity scandal, that she even hired a lawyer!
“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,” she said.
Kimball too has spoken out since the text leak, saying that he is extremely “hurt” and is choosing to end his romance with Cooper.
“I deal with unreasonable circumstances reasonably and have come to terms with a decision to remove myself from the relationship, it breaks my heart to think, feel and fall for this. It’s dropped me. Fumbling emotions and being understanding is not easy. I’ll be taking time to pursue my inner peace and she will always have me to talk to, if you’ve reached out to me, allow me time,” he said. “Thank you to those that have.”
