Bachelor in Paradise star Jenna Cooper came under fire for allegedly cheating on fiancé Jordan Kimball with an unnamed man when text messages of the "infidelity" emerged. But a forensic report obtained by RadarOnline.com reveals the messages are fraudulent!
In the forensic report, Cooper's iPhone 6 Plus, iPad and iCloud Backup were analyzed.
From the 6,596 text messages and the 269 deleted text messages that were recovered from the three devices, none of the text messages in the form published on realitysteve.com were recovered. Instead, lines from the text messages published by Reality Steve were found in exchanges between Cooper and Kimball.
"On August 26, 2018 at 7:33am, the phrase 'Good morning princess (lips emoji),' was sent from Ms. Cooper's phone to Mr. Kimball's phone," the report read. "The phrase 'Good Morning princess' was not identified as being sent to any other person from Ms. Cooper's phone."
A second example read, "On June 27, 2018, at 1:35pm, the phrase 'melts my heart' was sent from Mr. Kimball's phone to Ms. Cooper's phone. The phrase 'my hearts already melting' was not otherwise found during the analysis of Ms. Cooper's iPhone, iPad, or iCloud Backup."
In a third example on August 30, 2018 at 2:02am, the phrase "you still love me?" was sent from Cooper's phone to Kimball's phone. The phrase "melts my heart" was not found during the analysis of Cooper's iPhone, iPad or iCloud Backup.
Although Reality Steve claimed the texts were "verified" and "confirmed" from her phone number, the report says it is "impossible to verify the authenticity and authorship of the alleged texts using only the screenshots themselves."
"Proper authenticity and verification of the messages would require access to the device on which the messages were allegedly received," the report continued.
In a statement from Cooper's rep Steve Honig, he believes Kimball could've played a role in the altered text messages.
"A comprehensive forensic examination of Jenna's devices by an independent third-party expert has definitively confirmed none of the text messages in question came from Jenna's phone," Honig told RadarOnline.com. "Given the conclusive findings of the forensic report, Jenna's team is considering all options available to Jenna relating to the fraudulent texts."
Her rep continued that when BIP cameras stopped rolling, Kimball's demeanor toward Cooper "changed dramatically."
"He let it be known there was only room for one celebrity in the relationship, he was more successful and famous than her, she would never make as much money as him or amount to anything in life," Honig claimed. "She was belittled and made to feel insignificant and worthless. He continues to disparage her to this day. As painful as this has been for Jenna, she is glad he showed his true colors before they were married and began building a life together."
Kimball and Cooper got engaged on the season five finale of Bachelor in Paradise. The next day, Reality Steve posted text messages between Cooper and an unnamed man. In the messages, Cooper claimed she is only engaged to Kimball for publicity to help her business.
Cooper's lawyer accused Kimball of fabricating the text messages. Kimball posted the email on his Instagram page.
"We have not heard from you likely because you know what we know (ie; that you created the fabricated texts posted by Reality Steve blogger Stephen Carbone)," the email read. "You are clearly avoiding the situation because you know the truth already."
