MTV's "True Life: I'm Obsessed With My Ex" followed two young people who would do anything to get back with their former flames -- including catfishing and cyber-stalking. We had an opportunity to check in with Jade and Kaylynd to see how their lives have changed since filming wrapped. Take a look at our follow-up Q&As below:
At the end of your episode, Joe was taking you to court. What happened after we stopped filming?
Joe and I went to court, and we came to a joint custody agreement. He gets our son every other weekend. On the weeks where Joe has our son, he is supposed to see him once during the week and twice on the weeks Joe doesn’t have him.
How is your relationship with Joe now?
We barely have contact anymore. The only time we talk is about child support.
Has the co-parenting and visitation system you two came up with been working?
Joe has only kept up with seeing our son every other weekend. Joe doesn’t see him during the week like we talked about, he doesn’t check up, and we do everything through my mom now.
Have you looked at Joe's social media since we finished filming?
I haven’t looked at his social media at all. I tell myself that I will only get hurt if I look at his pages. I’ve reprogrammed my mind because I don’t want to look, and I don’t care anymore. He’s already proved to me that he’s not worth the time.
Do you have any regrets now about your past obsessive behavior?
I do regret my past behavior. I feel like an idiot, and I don’t know why I waited so long to fix things. I finally started acting my age and talking to other people, and I realized that I can like someone other than Joe.
Does your family still ask about Joe, or did you finally tell them that you two had broken up?
They don’t acknowledge him anymore, and if they see him, it’s just a quick "hi" and "bye" kind of thing.
Have you met or started dating anyone?
I’ve been hanging out with some people, but I wouldn’t call it dating. I haven’t done the dating thing in a long time, so I’m not sure how to approach it, but it’s been helping me take my mind off of everything.
How has college been going?
College is going well. I’m actually planning to transfer to a school in NYC because I feel like there are more opportunities in styling there than there are here in Ohio.
Have you talked to Breann at all since we finished filming?
I have, actually. We were at the same party, and it was more of a quick "hi" and "bye" thing. It was a little awkward.
Did you go back to following Breann on social media or looking at her posts?
We follow each other on social media still. I don’t constantly look at her posts, but we "like" each other’s recent updates if we happen to catch them.
Are you still friends with Jenna?
Jenna and I are still friends. I feel like there is something going on with her and Breann again, like some weird déjà vu, but it’s different because I’m not as concerned with Breann anymore.
Have you met or started dating anyone new?
No, I haven’t really been looking. I’ve been busy with school, my clothing blog and my business ventures in styling.
Did you learn anything from the experience with Breann?
I learned not to obsess over anyone because you’re probably not going to get them in the end.
Looking back on your cyber-stalking behavior, do you have any regrets? Or would you do it all over again because it got you to the truth?
I regret jumping into liking someone so fast without knowing them. If I had known more about Breann, I probably would’ve been able to see that something was going on with her and Jenna. However, I might consider doing it over again because I was able to see who my friends really were. It was good to see which ones really supported me and which ones were being a little sneaky behind my back.
