"I feel like people might think, 'oh, that was five years ago, why is he apologizing now?' And he had a trickle-down effect on my life and that's why I had falling outs with my friends and that's why I went away. It's not that it's so heartbreaking or these feelings of being angry because I haven't been angry for a long time. I can hang out with him and be fine, we can just shoot the s–t and it's great, but he has never apologized for the trickle-down effect and I needed that. I wanted that. I lost a lot of my friends because of him. He affected my life in a lot of ways he didn't realize," Stassi revealed during E!, Elle, and IMG's New York Fashion Week kickoff event.

Jax previously admitted to lying and cheating during their relationship and both parties have since moved on and dated other people. The blonde beauty has been open with fans about her on-again, off-again relationship with Patrick — though she added at Wednesday night's event that she is currently "single as f–k."
