Holly Allen threw shots at ex Jackson Michie in recent TikTok
In June 2020, Big Brother 21 runner-up Holly Allen and winner Jackson Michie split after dating for nearly a year. In Instagram posts, the two explained they were going down different paths that didn’t include each other.
Holly later opened up about the breakup in a podcast, implying she felt blindsided by it. In Nov. 2020, he publicly apologized to her in an Instagram Story.
Over a year after they called it quits, she threw shade at him in an Aug. 2021 TikTok video. In the skit, she claimed she and an unnamed ex broke up due to “religious differences.” Allen then joked, “He thought he was God; I didn’t.”
While the Wyoming native didn’t name the former partner, she confirmed Michie as the subject in numerous comments. Replying to one fan, she said she didn’t notice anything in the house because “you cling to any source of comfort” and told someone else the “BB goggles” helped her not see his “red flags.”
He responded and asked her to ‘keep my name out of your mouth’
In a clip that featured Allen’s original TikTok, Michie responded to his ex’s skit. He claimed she has continued to speak about him and “alluded” to him owing her money over a year after their split.
Michie said he “knows his truth” and denies believing he’s God, as Allen’s TikTok implied. He also insisted he has tried to help her and stated she’s doing things that are “untrue” and “out of line.”
The BB21 champ ended his clip by asking his ex to “keep my name out of your mouth” and “let me go and live my life.” Additionally, he said he’s “praying” for her but pointed out her age, claiming she’s doing “too much.” After posting the video to TikTok, he briefly mentioned it on his Snapchat Story.
Michie said he had to respond because she’s continued to speak about their breakup and thinks she’s using her platform to “throw jabs.” Additionally, he noted he believes she’s trying to “bash” his character and has “spread lies” about him, which is why he wanted to go public with a response.
She previously claimed she wished they never met
In Mar. 2021, shortly after Netflix’s Cheer star Morgan Simianer and Michie sparked dating rumors, Allen answered questions on her Instagram Story.
Responding to a fan who asked if she regretted dating him, the Wyoming native initially claimed she thought “every relationship serves a purpose.” However, she admitted that she wishes she never met Michie.
Additionally, Allen answered questions noting she missed Sahara, a dog they adopted together shortly before splitting, and said she wished she would have kept her.
Michie responded to her claims in a Snapchat Story the following day with screenshots of her answers, encouraging his ex to “let it go” and called her “a classic example of misery loves company.” Acknowledging her comments about the dog, the former champ called it “weird” and insisted the two already “established” he would keep Sahara if they split. Big Brother 23 airs Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays on CBS.
