“It was not good,” Jessika told New Idea ahead of her appearance on the hit reality show.
“It was a relationship built on a lot of manipulation and unhappiness. I started seeing the warning signs early on,” she admits.
“He was quite controlling and he just wanted to keep me just for him and never wanted to go out or anything like that.”
While the “toxic” relationship only lasted ten months, Jessika says it has scared for life.
“Mental health is such a big part of persons life and I’m not shy to go and talk to a counsellor and I did go and speak to someone after it,” she reveals.
“The manipulation was so bad that I thought I was in the wrong.”
Despite the hardship, Jessika says she’s learnt a lot from the experience.
“It sort of scared me from dating for a while but it also helped me grow into myself as a person, and deal with situations differently.”
