Jurors are hearing new details from a text message exchange between a former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader and the underage student she had sex with.

The messages between Sarah Jones and the teen were read in a northern Kentucky courtroom as part of her defamation lawsuit against a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based gossip website.

Jones, the teen's former teacher, texted him that it was love at first sight when he walked into her classroom for freshman English and that she knew they would be together one day.

Jones is asking the jury to award her $11 million for lewd posts made about her on thedirty.com, saying they caused her severe distress and weren't true.

Attorneys for the website say her relationship with the teen proves she's sexually immoral and that she's to blame for her tarnished reputation.
