Top villain Jackelina Bonds is denying ever cheating on Marshall Glaze when she went on a date and kissed Josh Demas on Love Is Blind season 4. On TikTok Jackie denies cheating on Marshall with Josh, claiming the Love Is Blind show production faked her cheating on Marshall by selectively editing the date day to be the same day she broke it off with her “too sensitive” fiancé.
Jackie, now age 27, points out she was wearing different clothes in the two scenes and had a different hairstyles.
“Marshall and I were broken up before I saw Josh at the coffee shop. I am wearing different clothes, my hair is styled different and at the end of the video I say ‘I DON’T KNOW IF I AM GOING TO BE WITH JOSH,'” Jackie said in part in her statement released on Saturday, April 8.
“I am not sure what the reason is for playing the coffee shop date before the breakup but to restate, Marshall and I were broken up before Josh and I had our coffee shop date,” Jackie said in her statement posted to TikTok.
Jackie explained keeping the engagement ring Marshall gave her because the show allegedly bought it. However, it’s more likely the Bridal Ring Company gave them free of charge for product placement).
Love Is Blind Fans Don’t Buy Jackie Denying Cheating On Marshall With Josh
Love is Blind season 4 fans don’t believe Jackie’s claim of a bad, deceptive edit making it only look like she cheated on Marshall because of what she said in her breakup conversation with Marshall.
I thought she said she saw Josh that day ?

“Marshall, I can’t love you. Because I’m attracted to Josh,” she said to a stunned Marshall. “I just saw Josh and there is some chemistry.” She then told Marshall that Josh confessed his feelings to her, which is exactly what happened on the coffee date where he bought her flowers and she kissed him and agreed to try dating. She also missed her wedding dress fitting on the same day, according to the edits. Love Is Blind is heavily edited, scripted and fake in parts, so her claims aren’t that far-fetched if this storyline was scripted. Also, she wasn’t lying about her hair being completely different and wearing different clothes in the two scenes.
Love Is Blind viewers on Reddit don’t believe Jackie’s story, however.
“She’s fighting for her life in the comments. She also said in comments that production edited voiceovers to different scenes and that a producer told her not to go to the dress fitting,” one commenter said.
“My generous explanation that she doesn’t deserve is the breakup we saw isn’t the breakup she’s referring to. I wouldn’t be surprised if she threw a fit off cam and said something cryptic and left and considered that a ‘breakup,’ hence her commentary here and maybe how she justifies not going to the fitting,” another LIB fan surmised.
Another fan pointed out Jackie also claimed production added audio of her one-on-one interview to make it sound like she just told Marshall she just went on a date with Josh. “I’m not convinced personally,” said the fan.
Jackie Isn’t Apologetic About Breakup With Marshall & Has ‘Soul-binding’ Realtionship With Josh
Jackie also told Today.com she isn’t sorry about her breakup with Marshall.
“Me and Marshall broke up because we just weren’t meant for each other,” Jackie said in the interview. “I was going down a different road than he was, and he required way more emotion, way more babying, all that.”
Jackie was spotted a week ago on a Seattle Mariners baseball date with Josh, so the two are still a couple.
“Going forward and moving forward with Josh. It was actually very surreal. It was actually very intimate, very soul-binding, I would say, because it’s almost kind of like, we are very strong,” she said in the same interview.
Meanwhile, Marshall’s taking the high road.
