“I just take a second to jump in here and address what happened last weekend,” Jackson began, before adding, “I screwed up.
‘The way I’ve been dealing with [the negativity from the show] it’s getting drunk, which don’t get me wrong, it’s not an excuse, it’s not acceptable.
‘He’s not the person I want to be. It’s not who I am,’ he continued.
“I’m looking for help trying to figure out new ways to combat my emotions and how to deal with this negativity.”

Looking surprised by his comment, Olivia replied, ‘Aww, that’s good…’
Olivia went on to confirm that the couple were “holding it together” and had no intention of breaking up.
We will stay together. We have a lot to heal, but ultimately we love each other and it’s not worth throwing away,” he said.

The couple had “a serious discussion about his future” when Jackson got sober on Saturday, before Olivia offered him an ultimatum.
“They’re going to have a little break and figure out what they want to do and how they can move forward,” the source said.
“Liv just wants her to give up her party lifestyle and grow up.”
