It’s been just over a week since Keira posted the now-deleted breakup announcement on her Instagram, in which she apologised to any fans she may have disappointed.
“It is with a very sad heart but I have to let you all know that Jarrod and I have split up…” she wrote.
“I’m sorry if anyone is disappointed or if I have let anyone down.
“Please respect our privacy as this is a very hard time for me.”
Now, in an exclusive with New Idea, the 32-year-old has given fans a deeper insight into the breakdown of her nine-month relationship, and she said money was a contributing factor.
“He would get really frustrated because I didn’t have a job and [he] couldn’t understand my lifestyle, earning money from Instagram,” she said, before adding in this pointed comment.
“The thing is, I earn more than he does. Everyone thinks he’s this rich man who owns a winery. He doesn’t. He works on his parents’ farm and wasn’t supporting me financially. If anything, it was me spoiling the sh*t out of him,” she said.

According to the influencer, Jarrod’s on-air flirtations with Ali Oetjen and Simone Ormesher also became a recurring issue in their relationship, which was exacerbated as the show went to air.
“As soon as the show came on, we struggled. We saw each other in a different light,” she said.
“I saw the things he was saying, watching him with Ali and Simone on dates…I was so vulnerable and it was too much for me. We never recovered from that.”
“He fell for Ali so easily and was so flippant with his feelings. I worried if he even liked me.”
Keira also spoke very candidly on their unexpected and sudden breakup and said looking back, she “can’t even remember what [they] were bickering about”.
“He sent me a message saying, ‘I don’t think this is working out,’ and that was it. I thought we’d try and see someone and work on it, but he didn’t want to,” she said to New Idea.
So far, Jarrod is yet to comment directly on their breakup. He has only posted to Instagram once since the announcement.
“Sunsets, fire and wine….world’s greatest distractions,” he wrote in the caption of a photo of… you guessed it, a sunset, a fire and a bottle of red.
Each to their own, we guess.
