The former Islander continued, "In this fame industry it’s hard, it’s so cut throat."

"One minute people like you and one minute they don’t."

"I’ve had a lot of fake friends come and go, I was really surprised when I was in my dark space, all the people who said they would be there, weren’t."

"It couldn’t be furtherer from the truth. Words hurt and we do see them."

Jack said he turned off his like count on Instagram because it was just, "bringing [him] down."

"It was just putting me into a really bad space."

The reality star said he's airing his issues because he has no one else to talk to, "apart from [his] family..."

"The reason I’m saying this is if I can just help one person I’m happy."

"You should speak out about mental health because it’s a serious thing, it’s awful."

Jack continued, "It affects you physically, you don’t want to do anything or exercise. Leave the house."

"I’m sorry this is downbeat but I wanted to address it because over the last few weeks I’ve been getting some nasty, over the top remarks."

"I urge people to think before they comment or message, trust me it does affect people."
