Sam Thompson breaks up with Zara McDermott last month after he found that she “cheated” on him last year, the reports say. The 28-year-old reportedly discovered that Zara, 23, had enjoyed an appointment with “someone in the music industry” when she took part in The X Factor: Celebrity last autumn. Here is the inside story of why the couple broke up.
Sam Thompson Breaks Up with Sara McDermott
Zara coupled with her recent Love Island co-stars Wes Nelson, Eyal Booker, and Samira Mighty to play on the show as part of the group, No Love Lost.
An insider told of her rumored unfaithfulness: “Zara cheated on Sam with someone in the music industry. Someone connected to the X-Factor.
“Sam is obviously distraught about this. He only found out about it very recently and has escaped for a few days.
“Zara regrets it and feels terrible. She knows it was a huge mistake and is extremely upset,” the insider added.
The news brokes after Sam’s sister Louise Thompson uploaded secret tweets about cheating earlier this week.
She penned to her 519k followers: “Cheaters always want you to be loyal while they’re being unfaithful,” leaving her fans and followers to think this was aimed at her own relationship with fiancé Ryan Libbey.
Just a few days later she uploaded another post, which read: “Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair” followed by “I’m proud of my heart. It’s been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken… somehow still works.”
It is now understood the tweets could be pointed at Zara and her connection with Sam, not Louise’s own romance with Ryan.
