“We broke up on a drunken night out over something silly and that was it,” Keira said. “He went back to the pub and I never heard from him again. Nothing at all and that was really hard for me. I wanted it to work. I’m a sucker for a fairytale ending which is why I went on The Bachelor in the first place.
“Having someone ghost you is probably the hardest break-up to go through. There is no last conversation which means I had no closure. Which I really struggled with,” she continued.
Desperate to put the past behind her she fled to Bali for a girls' weekend. However, after touching down in Melbourne, Keira said her world came crashing down when she was confronted with sordid details of Jarrod's new love interest after photos emerged showing the reality star kissing a mystery blonde while vacationing in Bali.
“Jarrod was photographed with a girl on holiday and it turns out she had a boyfriend, who decided to reach out to me about their affair,” Keira said. “He sent me all the details of what went down in the bedroom. What they did and how long it lasted. It was too much information. The whole situation has been so hurtful.”
At the time, fellow holiday goers dished on Jarrod's new love interest, revealing the pair definitely had chemistry.
"He was sitting alone and we overheard him tell the towel guy to set up another sunbed as a girl was arriving in an hour," a witness exclusively told New Idea."Then this young girl arrived in a white shirt and bikini and basically didn’t leave our hotel for 48 hours wearing the same clothing - even to breakfast!"
Last year, Jarrod opened up to WHO in an exclusive interview about his brief split from Keira, admitting that it was her obsession with social media that spelled the end.
“Being in the public eye, we made it look like we had a perfect relationship and that’s what people see on Instagram. I found myself turning into something I wasn’t [and] I couldn’t fake it anymore,” the Toms Cap Vineyard owner said. “Her Instagram following is overwhelming and it was taking over our relationship. She’s purely Instagram-focused, and that takes up a lot of time.”
Months after the tell-all interview, the reality stars confirmed with WHO that they were back together.
"We kept what we were doing on the down-low. We wanted to make sure before going public. There’s a lot of extra pressure being in the spotlight and that was something we struggled with," Keira told WHO exclusively. "We’re being more private – so when you saw the Instagram photos that weren’t when we got back together that was just when we were willing to share it."
