And it’s over.
The mother-of-one told New Idea she split with the 35-year-old FIFO worker last Monday, after five months of dating. Unprepared to move to Melbourne with her eight-year-old daughter, the Perth woman said the relationship had become quite “strained” in recent weeks and that she just “had to call it” in order to ensure things didn’t end bitterly.
“My core needs in a relationship are commitment, stability and security, and Sean can’t give that to me,” Jewel, 35, told the tabloid.
The writer said she ripped off the bandaid while picking Thomsen up from the airport.
“It was brutal,” she said. “I couldn’t even wait for him to get into the frigging car.”
Jewel was originally matched with divisive ad man Dean Wells, but chose to end the TV union in the final episodes of the juggernaut matchmaking series. Shortly after, it was revealed she had since begun dating Thomsen.
Jewel told New Idea she wouldn't be surprised to receive a call from Wells now that she is single again. She also didn't rule out the possibility of rekindling things with him, either.
"Dean will always have a soft spot in my heart, and who knows?" she said. "The way me and Dean ended things, you never say never. Some couples can take a break and have some space and come back."
Since leaving the show, Jewel has snagged herself representation in the form of talent agent Max Marxson, and is soon to launch her book, This Goddess Means Business, via a national tour of cocktail-style soirées.
Cut the crap.
