She told viewers that she had decided to end her separation after finding that they had "different attitudes to the situation".

"There are a lot of things that I personally believe I can no longer tolerate for my sanity. I can't fake a relationship. I can't pretend everything is fine," she said, tearing apart. "I decide to publish this video to announce that we are not together and will not come back together because I had to consolidate that in my own brain."
"I can only tolerate so much and I have to keep going. I can only continue by doing this video and telling everyone," she continued.
Although the reality star didn't go into details about their split, she told fans that her feelings for Jowsey were real.
"For me, I would have stayed with that person no matter what," she said, adding that her efforts to fix their relationship were "not returned" by Jowsey. "The love I had for him was very, very, very, very real."
"I don't think anyone can stay in a situation where you are extremely unhappy and not being treated the way you should be treated," added Farago. "There's a lot more to this story."
