#HurtBae's Cheating Ex Speaks Out In New Interview
"Just because it wasn’t written all over my face doesn’t mean I didn’t feel some type of way..."
Leonard Long III, who claims to be the "most hated guy in America" after confessing to his college sweetheart Kourtney Jorge that he cheated on her multiple times, is telling his side after their #HurtBae video went viral.
In a new interview with Krispy Shorts, the 23-year-old says that he still cares deeply about his ex even though his stoic expression throughout the video seems to say otherwise. "I was definitely emotional," Long said of his perceived absence of feelings during the confession to Jorge. "Just because it wasn’t written all over my face doesn’t mean I didn’t feel some type of way. That’s the way that I process the moment."
"I’m 23 years old," he continued. "I’m a young man trying to navigate the world. I’m going to make mistakes and learn from those mistakes and live my life better…hold myself to a higher standard. I know I’m the most hated guy in America, but I swear I’ve changed. I would never want to put someone through that again...Men do their dirt and we have to be more responsible not getting caught. Women do too. They just happen to be experts at hiding.”
Long says that his relationship with Jorge ended about three years ago, and that she signed them up for a casting call about cheating ex-lovers not too long ago. He ultimately agreed to go to the casting call because he thought it would be good for "closure." However, he suggested that Jorge is doing just fine with her newfound fame from the video.
"I’m proud of her. I hope she gets all that she can out of this." He also says with a grin to the camera at the end of the video, “I made that b**ch famous," referencing the Kanye West lyric from his song "Famous."
