Jenna Cooper: Actually, I Can PROVE I’m No Cheater! Look at My Phone!
Jenna Cooper and Jordan Kimball found each other on Bachelor in Paradise … and then fell apart after alleged text messages seemed to expose Jenna as a cheater.
Jordan broke up with her, but Jenna says she’s a victim of fraud. She hired an attorney and claims to prove that someone faked those texts.
And she had her phone undergo a forensic analysis to prove just that.
Jenna and Jordan have been through a hell of an ordeal, but Jenna took to Instagram to share that she can prove that she did nothing wrong.
“The results from the forensic analysis are in,” Jenna announces. “And I feel compelled to share them with Jordan before anyone else.”
Along with her words, she shares a couple of images that show her running a forensic program on her phone.
“Despite what some people have said,” Jenna emphasizes. “I have denied all of these false allegations from the beginning.”
“And,” Jenna says. “I am reiterating that I never cheated on Jordan.”
She wants to make this absolutely clear.
“There is no “sugar daddy,” I was not faking my feelings towards Jordan on the show,” Jenna says.
Others have said that she appeared very genuine on the show, both on and off camera.
“And,” Jenna continues. “That I never made or sent those fake texts posted by Stephen Carbone.”
She is referring to Reality Steve.
“I appreciate everyone who has believed, supported, and loved me through this,” Jenna writes.
“I also forgive those of you who have said hateful things to me,” Jenna says.
That’s a lot nicer than many of us would feel under those circumstances.
Jenna continues: “I have spent years growing as a strong independent woman who manages her business without the help from any man.”
“It is insulting to hear that anyone would question my character in that way,” she explains. “When my biggest passion is to empower women.”
“This is why I am standing up for myself and refusing to be a victim,” she writes.
“I did nothing wrong,” Jenna affirms. “And despite what accusatory statements negative gossip bloggers have to say…I have a voice too, and it will be heard!”
Some would disappear and wait for the story to die down. Jenna seems determined to clear her name, and eager to prove it.
“I am standing up for myself,” she continues. “And any woman who has ever been mistreated, overpowered, sexualized, or made to feel unworthy of sharing her story.”
“I have God and the truth on my side,” she concludes. “And in the end that’s all I need.”
She ends the post with: “I will not be silenced.”
Jenna has also expressed an interest in more or less going to war, legally speaking, with Reality Steve.
While we would all like to know who sent Steve those texts, why they sent them, and how they managed to make him confident that they were genuine … this might not be the way.
But the phone analysis is a much better step.
A forensic analysis of her phone should dredge up any texts of any kind through any messenger apps, including deleted texts (remember, deleting something doesn’t really erase it).
If Jenna were just insisting that she’d never ever cheat, that would be one thing. Instead, she’s setting out to prove it — which makes her very believable.
At this point, it’s unclear if this is about winning back Jordan’s heart or just about assuring the world that this isn’t who she is.
No matter what proof she finds, this may be too much for her to reconcile with Jordan.
