The season of The Bachelorette was DRAMATIC (of course, because it always is!) but we all were hopeful that fan-favorite JoJo Fletcher would find love with a great guy.
Well, she found love, but claims made about season winner, Jordan Rodger, have made post-Bachelorette life, difficult, something that JoJo and Jordan have been open about.
“I’ll be honest – it’s been difficult,” JoJo said on The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose. “I think the hardest part has been, you know, my entire life I’ve envisioned getting engaged and having this moment where just everybody can see the love that you have for one another and that there’s this overwhelming amount of positivity and support.”
“I think the hardest part for me is just having people say, ‘Oh he doesn’t really love you, this is for the show.’ That hurts me,” she continued. “There have been many nights where I’ve cried myself to sleep, and he’s been the person on the phone with me just trying to keep my okay, and I feel like it’s been really hard for him. [Before] this point, we can’t defend each other. We can’t show our love, we can’t show our relationship, so that’s been tough.”
So why all of the negativity around their relationship?
After the first episode, Jordan’s ex posted to Instagram, “Riding the bench doesn’t get in a relationship, but cheating does. #yourpitchisntperfect @jrodgers11 #alwayswantedtobefamous #dreamscometrue #tuneinnextweekformoreBS @bacheloretteabc”
Thus became an off and on camera conversation about Jordan’s ‘integrity.’
Well, Jordan’s ex has taken to Instagram again to tell her truth, saying “After our breakup, I was surprised to find out what a prolific liar and cheater #JordanRodgers was during out entire 3 1/2 year-relation. But what has surprised me even more is how he has carelessly bashed and lied about me in public. I guess he thought I wouldn’t stand up for myself. #HeWasWrong”
Here’s what she had to say:
