Fans had mixed reviews about Jackie and Marshall’s connection in Season 4 but decided to see how her relationship with Josh would evolve after being announced on the reunion special.
Between April and now, the new couple was going strong until Jackie had a conversation with Demas’ ex-fiancée and fellow classmate Monica Rodriguez on “Love Is Blind: After the Altar.”
Watching Monica tell Josh and Jackie the truth about themselves is amazing. So Josh is upset that Monica didn't delete negative comments from the viewers. Make it make sense? #LoveIsBlindAftertheAltar #LoveIsBlind #LoveisBlind4 #LoveIsBlinds4 pic.twitter.com/yHmwCNxF5W

Bonds uploaded a video to X explaining to fans what caused the breakup.
“Instead of ignoring it, I was told by him and I ended up having a conversation with her, and that’s the reason why we broke up. Still sick about it lowkey, I love that man. I was like d— I had all these life plans with you and then you just don’t even care and I’m like that’s crazy. Over a conversation with somebody t–? It don’t matter. I tried to fix it, I tried to mend it, I did everything I could, and what’s crazy is looking back on these text messages I look like a begging a– b—-. What’s crazy is I’ve never begged nobody to be with me, I ain’t never been on no weird s—, to where I’m like, ‘Oh my god, be with me. Oh my god, be with me.” Looking back at the text messages I’m like sick throwing up to where’s [it’s] like how am I begging? Like that’s crazy but it is what it is,” Bonds said.

So Josh from #loveisblind actually proposed to someone else after Jackie told him she would move forward with Marshall … then the girl ended the engagement with Josh and he spun the block for Jackie. S4 is so messy 😂😭 pic.twitter.com/I1BWCqKXtR
