‘Unfortunately, having a life in the public eye often means that people want to pry into events that I would have liked to keep private. That false information about my love life can be incredibly upsetting to not only me, but to others involved,’ she wrote on Instagram.
'Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I've opened myself up to that, but stop and think before you react,' she continued.
'As tough as I look, I'm still a young girl working my way through life, and words can hurt even the toughest of people.
'I'm not perfect, but nobody is these days and I'm learning to be soft and it's not hard to be kind. Spread that stuff everywhere.'
Earlier this week Jess came clean about what's been going on between her and Burgess.
While she clarified the details of the texts she's sent to the former Rabbitohs star, Jess also told the publication that she "felt sorry for" Phoebe, Sam's estranged wife.

Jess told the publication that she had offered her support to Sam, 30, as he deals with his marriage break up, as well as coming to terms with his NRL career ending.

"I let him know that I was here to chat and just to see if he was okay, so that was it," Jess clarified.
Sam has been spotted partying in Mexico
"There's no dating going on there!" she added with a laugh.
