This Video About Cheating Is A Moving Display Of Vulnerability
Twitter has named Kourtney Jorge #HurtBae, but what she did was pretty brave.
A compelling video of Kourtney Jorge and her ex-boyfriend Leonard has Twitter in a frenzy about cheating. During a honest conversation, Jorge confronted her former beau about his infidelity and emotional abuse during their relationship. As the two sat face-to-face, she calmly asked him, "What did you do?"
Leonard candidly replied, "I've had sex with other girls. I did everything."
With tears in her eyes, Jorge continued to search for answers while Leonard rolled out heart wrenching truths about his disrespect. It's a familiar story that many of us have heard before or know all too well. It's the one when the woman endures pain from her lover, struggles to leave the toxic relationship, and when it's all said and done the man who repeatedly hurt her asks, "Why didn't you just leave?"
While some people slandered Jorge for giving Leonard several chances, she also received a lot of empathy and support for her bravery and vulnerability.

At least #Hurtbae got a chance to confront him. Most of us end relationships not knowing why dude did whatever he did.— Coco (@Joveeeeeeeeee) February 16, 2017

Thankfully, she's moved on and she's gotten closure from the truth:
