“First — if you are in love — that’s a good thing — that’s about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Don’t let anyone make it small or light to you. Second — There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you — of kindness and consideration and respect — not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn’t know you had.” Thank you for your friendship for six years, my love. I am grateful we figured it all out. And thank you for asking me to be your bff forever 💍 #yesyesyes To read the full Steinbeck quote and instantly feel inspired, click the link in bio 🔝

Kuznetsov was a producer at Scott Brothers Entertainment, the production company Jonathan owns with twin brother Drew.

When the pair split, Jonathan posted a lengthy message on Instagram, which said in part, “There’s no drama or negativity; no jealousy or hate. Not even sadness or sorrow. Our memories are filled with joy and we will continue to advocate for each other as friends wherever we go.”

Jacinta also posted about the split on Instagram, but later deleted the message. She shared the same sentiment, saying, “We have deep love and respect for one another but have gone separate ways.”
