Kimball also responded to the report with People. He said Cooper was nervous when someone posted on Twitter that someone from the show was going to get roasted and he tried to calm her. When he saw the screenshots he didn’t totally deny that it could be from his fiancée.
“I know my Jenna, and I read those texts and in my heart, I know it’s her,” he said according to People. “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.”
4. Kimball said they didn’t have a TV romance

To think, to feel, to fall. These emotions interact with experiences and people, when you find a person you think about them, you feel when they feel and sometimes you fall. When you’re in love with even the experiences you’ve had with them it’s something to respect. Being careless with someone that you give your heart to and reach milestones with isn’t sensible no matter what the terms may be. I have not had an easy life and having struggles allows me to grab onto tough times and discard them from my path. 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. Thank you to those that have.
A day after Kimball and Cooper reacted to the report, he announced on Instagram that they were done. He wrote, “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.”
6. He also said he can’t wait to see if the cheating scandal is fake
Kimball said there could be a chance that Cooper didn’t cheat at all but he can’t wait to find out. “I just can’t wait and hold on to see if this is fake,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “I allowed myself to be played, but I will not allow myself to be fooled by this. If this turns out to be fake, then hey, it’s a good thing that I didn’t lash out at her.”
