"I stick by what I said in my response to the allegations. I have ordered a cease and desist letter. I think everybody needs to take in every factor and what actually happened. At the end of the day, it's no one's business. It's between Nick and me," she said.
Jess also admitted she's been struggling with the public scrutiny as of late, revealing she's only recently come out the other side of what she described to be a "low depression".
"As you can imagine the last 24 hours have been massively stressful for me. Not only has there been a cheating allegation but there's been a whole lot going on in my personal life to do with my family," the controversial star began. "It has hit me like a tonne of bricks. Today has been the only day I've been able to pull myself out of the mindset of a low depression."
She continued: "Please, I know that it's so easy to write nasty things on the Internet but I have had a really rough year and I don't make the choices all the time and I'm not perfect. I feel like sharing this on a social platform has allowed for slut-shaming and bullying. Remember your words hurt," she said, addressing the haters.
On Tuesday, Jess chatted exclusively with WHO about the drama that's ensued after Nick shared the jaw-dropping video, claiming it was taken before she appeared on MAFS and while she was vacationing in Bali with Joely Martin— a close friend of her brother's who she endured an ill-fated fling with.
"I am so pissed off," Jess began. "I have known Joely for years and my brother used to live with him. My brother and I went to Bali in June last year, even before the show, and that’s what that video is from. He uploaded it on his Instagram last night as a joke and he's since messaged me saying ‘I’m so f***ing sorry you didn't deserve that. I am so so sorry, I can't even remember posting that. I thought it was funny at the time and never meant anything by it.' He posted it as a joke."
"Joel and I were liking each other's pictures on Instagram after we broke up, he assumed in his head that's where I must have been— with Joel," she said before explaining she and Nick caught up with Joely and his new girlfriend during their overseas trip.
"That song is from 2019," he said, referring to the track Jessika and Joely were singing to before they smooched on the back of a motorbike.
"Her teeth had been done and she was wearing the same clothes she wore the same f***ing day. That guy didn't even have a tattoo on his cheek in 2018. Come on now. All the evidence is there. It's the way she's been brought up, she's a compulsive liar and she hasn't learnt how to be honest with herself and those around her."
While some fans of the former couple believed Nick's Instagram post was unnecessary— with one arguing he and Jessika should've dealt with the matter privately— he says he doesn't regret exposing her on a public platform.
"I have been amicable with her the whole time and we've been on good terms but when I saw that, it was a bit of a kick in the guts. She did f***ing lie to me. I had to pull her up and I thought she could probably learn from this. It was 3 am in the morning when I saw it and I couldn't get back to sleep for two hours.
He continued: "I don't hate her, just a bit disappointed. I am not a bully and someone needs to take a stand and say this is wrong, what you're doing. Bad behaviour needs to be pulled up."
Although Nick's quotes muddy the waters‚ with many unsure who to believe, rumours have long been swirling Jessika cheated on her boyfriend while they were vacationing in Indonesia.
In fact, Nick says he confronted the Instagram influencer about the issue at the time.
"A friend of mine from Bali gave me a heads up. I asked her about it and she cracked the sh*ts saying, 'Why wouldn't you believe me?' She was very defensive. I did believe her but in the back of my head, I knew something wasn't right. There is a right and a wrong way to end a relationship. Just be honest and don't be a sh*t person. I would have more respect for her if she was real.
