Big Brother 25 star Jared Fields maintains he actually broke up with his ex girlfriend McKenzie about a month before going on the show. In an exit interview after officially getting evicted from the house on Thursday, September 28, Jared claimed he properly ended things before his showmance with Blue Kim. Jared’s breakup with ex girlfriend Kenzie seemed fishy to viewers because his mom Cirie Fields talked about her on the show like they were still together. Jared also wanted to give her a shoutout on her birthday and talked affectionately about her on the live streams.
Furthermore, Cirie and Jared laughed about the pictures in his HOH room because two of them were from Kenzie’s house. Cirie told her son the producers were probably protecting him because they didn’t provide a letter from McKenzie or “Kenzo”.
Jared went on a long rambling answer in an interview with entertainment journalist Sharon Tharp.
“It’s funny that this is something that got misconstrued here. I was really adamant and really open and honest with Blue about my situation outside of the house. And I told her I just got out of a really long-term relationship, being seven years, and I told her that, that it was really fresh. Me and my ex girlfriend broke up pretty much right about a month before I moved into the house. And, um, I was very open with Blue about this and let her know that it was something that I was dealing with. And, uh, after leaving a relationship like that for having so much time with somebody regardless, it’s going to be tough to move on,” Jared said.

“And uh I told myself coming into this house, ‘I’m like hey, I’m not going to get into any showmances because I know that’ll I’ll still be dealing with a breakup.’ And going through the trials and tribulations of the aftermath of such a long breakup but um I was able to confide in Blue with that information and she really helped me get through it and she was also just recently going through a breakup of four years also. So it was one of those things where we really connected on,” he said.
“It was like, ‘Hey, we got each other, as long as we’re here, we’re here. And we’ll figure out the rest later. It’s gonna be tough, it’s not gonna be easy at all because at any point we both may revert back to thinking about our person or who we just came from or thinking of hey we want this situation to be like our last situation, but uh, we both were just able to see each other as completely separate. And we think uh she said the same thing to me, she said, ‘Hey, I was not planning on this,’ and uh I think it just speaks to us just clicking with each other and that’s just something that we couldn’t hide.”
So far Jared’s ex girlfriend hasn’t directly spoken out about her relationship with Jared. But she did like tweets of fans bashing Jared for allegedly cheating. McKenzie also posted a photo in August of her in a hotel room in LA with an engagement ring on. She also took care of Jared’s Pitbull dog while he was in the house.
In his exit interviews Jared also said he regretted some of his language on the show and said he will do better going forward. In another interview, Jared said he could see bright future with him and Blue, with both of them planning to move to LA.
