Trevor Jackson of ‘Grown-ish’ Dissects That Shocking Breakup: ‘It Was a Struggle For Him.’
In the premiere of ‘Grown-ish,’ the Aaron/Zoey/Luca love triangle took a turn. Trevor Jackson was interviewed EXCLUSIVELY by HL about the major breakup, what’s next, and more. SPOILERS!
After tensions about Zoey becoming Luca’s intern boiled over in the January 27 premiere of Grown-ish, Aaron broke up with her.
Aaron was able to settle things with Luca on his own, but he opted to terminate things with Zoey so that she could do whatever she wanted. Trevor Jackson gave HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVE information on Aaron’s feelings over the split.
«Let’s just hope they can keep their friendship.» «I know how difficult it is to stay connected to someone after you break up with them,» Trevor told HollywoodLife.
«I hope for that, but who knows where it will lead.» I’m sure it was difficult for him to break up with her, but he felt it was necessary. I believe that if you leave that space, it will always return to you in a nice position.»
Aaron sat Zoey down and explained that he didn’t want to get in the way of her profession. He said that if Zoey and Luca were still dating, he wouldn’t be able to take them working together.
«He just better tread softly, that’s all,» Trevor replied when asked if Aaron will eventually be happy with Zoey and Luca working together. Just don’t go insane. «Keep things simple and fluid.»
Despite Ana’s insistence that Vivek keeps their secret connection a secret, he ended up telling Zoey, Jazz, and Nomi about it. Vivek’s blunder was defended by Jordan Buhat. Jordan said, «He was put under duress.» «If anything, people are hot on Vivek’s for a split second before forgetting about him.» He’s a lovable knucklehead, so I’m sure she’ll forgive him.»
«Gosh, wouldn’t that be kind of cool?» Jordan replied when asked if this could be the start of something more between Vivek and Ana. That could be fairly fantastic because there hadn’t really been anything up until that point, which I appreciated because Vivek has always been a great male friend, which is a real thing… I’m not sure where that kind of relationship could go because they don’t fit on paper, you know what I’m talking about?»
Doug has been busy hooking up with Kiki behind Luca’s back, but what about Jazz? Diggy Simmons told HollywoodLife, «She’ll always be a factor.» «I believe she was Doug’s first love,» says the narrator. They had spent so much of their time in college together.
That was extremely significant. She’ll always remain dear to his heart, but I believe he’s got other things on his mind right now, like school and navigating the situation with Kiki and Luca’s ignorance, so I think he’s got a lot on his plate right now.» Grown-ish airs on Freeform on Thursdays.
