By now, the entire internet knows the love story of Kourtney Jorge and Leonard Long III. He cheated on her and she wanted to know why. But the story of #HurtBae has a happy ending. According to Essence, Jorge is in a new relationship and is stronger than ever.
"I've learned that honesty is crucial to any relationship," Jorge says in a new interview. "I've also learned that facing truth can be difficult but ultimately it makes you a stronger person. I really believe in the power of forgiveness for my own well-being and I don't like holding grudges because it's just not who I am."
The Atlanta native explains that she wanted to sit down with Long in the now-viral video, because she needed closure on their relationship. "At the time, I felt like it was important for me to know the truth about everything to finally get to the bottom of it, get closure and try to move on. I was nervous about the video being released initially. So I've embraced #HurtBae and look forward to empowering more women in similar situations."
An aspiring model, Jorge is no longer hurt. She's found love and more importantly, she loves herself.
