New information has surfaced on the breakup between Kenya Moore and her ex Matt Jordan. But before we get to that, I have to tell you that I was in discussion with a couple of very close sources regarding the situation over a period of around 17 hours. My immediate reaction to the situation was to insure that Kenya was safe and being emotionally supported by someone. I did not talk to Kenya. Contrary to popular believe I am not friends with Kenya. We do not go shopping for shoes or work out at the gym together. (As if I would do either of those things) I am also not paid by Kenya (That would be great though! Oh wait no it wouldn’t because then I would feel bad when I call her out, like I do when it is warranted) I am blogger, who lives in Atlanta who, after that horrific first season she had, became a fan. I view her as a human being, which should seem obvious, but the longer I do this job the more I realize that a large faction of people on the Internet seem to think these people are soulless holograms hired by Andy Cohen to be abused for our enjoyment. It’s kind of like a modern day version of feeding the Christians to the lions for some of you
When I initially spoke to Source, I got the distinct impression that there was some sort of blowup in which Kenya felt unsafe. Source seemed to be upset with Matt a bit more than one would if it was just a situation where they realized they were not right for each other. It was enough for me to ask if she was physically injured. I was told she was not. There was a statement along the lines of “he didn’t get the chance.” I was personally rather shaken by the whole conversation. I was a bit sad and angry myself, as a woman who has been through many situation in her own life. I tried to listen and not to push, I wanted to write the story immediately, but I also wanted to be sensitive to whatever Kenya wished to share with the public. Because we really don’t have the right to know every detail of her private life as much as some tabloids feel that we do. I was given nothing to say on the record and agreed to wait until the next day for some sort of on the record comment. At the time this was all happening on Instagram and both Kenya and Matt had turned their settings to private. So I was being contacted by fans who followed by parties. (Thanks for that, y’all).
The next day, I talked to the same sources. Source had a whole different outlook on Matt. He’s basically a good guy. He just needs to work on himself before he is ready for a relationship. Etc. ONCE AGAIN. I DID NOT TALK TO KENYA. To me, at this time, Source sounded a bit like someone who had been abused and then the next day started making excuses and blaming herself. Source was not there, Source knows both parties and it seemed sort of like all was forgiven.
Basically, the only thing I could publish was that Kenya was in NYC working on a new job fairly long term job that she was booked for. She’s fine. Matt is contrite. Life Twirls on. Again, I never asked for details. I did not interrogate my Source. You get what you get and work with that. You also respect their off the record comments as just that. So while I had a feeling that something major happened in between the photo of Matt at the pool and a few hours later, that falls in to none of my business. The lead story is they have broken up. That’s it. Details are unimportant. That was confirmed for me so I ran this story. I kept most of my exclusive details in my head. As Yolanda would say, I keep a lot in the vault about a lot of the people who I cover.
Which brings us to today and this quote by TMZ:
We’re told Kenya locked herself in their hotel room, but Matt got mad and “kicked the door in and broke it.”
When he got in, the argument got more heated — he repeatedly called her “bitch” and “c***” … according to our sources.
We’re told they actually flew back to Atlanta on the same flight, but Kenya changed their seats. Once they landed, Matt grabbed her luggage … and to avoid a scene, Kenya went back to her place in a separate car from Matt. But things blew up again when he showed up to her house and dumped her bag on the driveway, and that was it.
We’re told it never got physical, but Kenya was fed up with the verbal abuse … and pulled the plug on the relationship.
My first reaction is, “Who is the source of this story?” There were two people on the trip. These claims go all the way from Mexico, thru the airport and to the driveway of Moore Manor. Two people were in those situations. Kenya and Matt. Could it be one of Matt’s friends calling TMZ to make a dollar? Maybe. But it would have to be someone he confided in and admitted to cursing her out who then turned on him. I spoke to Kenya’s camp and they were very closed mouthed and offered no negative comments about Matt whatsoever It was completely in line with Matt’s Instagram post. The only thing I can think of is that Matt did something new to stir the pot, or made some sort of threat toward Kenya, or that someone (not the Source I spoke to) didn’t want Matt getting out of this unscathed and went to TMZ. Either way, IF THIS STORY IS TRUE it came from someone close to either Matt or Kenya.
Now I am being asked if this story is true. I do not know. I was not there. There are only two people who know for sure if this story is true. But if I had a gun to my head and someone was to say I had to get the answer to the question, “Did this really happen?” right. I’d say I believe it.
I have to say, I am just few hours into my workday and I’m deeply concerned by some of the comments about women who deserve to be tormented (In comments here) already, and this TMZ report just makes me more sensitive about it. So if you think this is the day, or the place to make misogynistic comments I can assure you that you are wrong and will be summarily dropped into the Window Licking Section (WLS) where your comments will never again be seen by me or anyone else. I’m already sick to my stomach.
