Married At First Sight star Jess O’Connor, 31, revealed that she found out that her boyfriend had been having an affair with her stepmum. According to The Sun, the incident left her feeling suicidal. She had been with her ex-husband, Pjay Finch, for four years before they split up.
She considered her boyfriend part of the family, and she didn’t want to leave him drinking with his stepmum, who was 52 at the time, while they slept upstairs. According to Jess, they were both very serious during their time together, and she even planned on proposing to her.
The couple had long-term plans. They first met at a music festival, and they had a similar taste in music. She also got on well with his friends. Her stepmum had been in her life for over two decades, and she was like her second mother to her.
The most upsetting thing about the situation was how both of them betrayed me. Three months after they bought their home, they had been staying at her parents’ house. On the night of the affair, they had gone out for dinner and then carried on drinking at home.
After leaving her boyfriend, her dad, and her stepmum downstairs, she went to bed. However, when she woke up the following morning, she discovered that her boyfriend had not come back to bed. She then went to look for him. She initially thought it was strange that her boyfriend hadn’t come back to bed.
Upon entering the dining room, she noticed that the door was open. She then found two bottles of Champagne, her boyfriend’s clothes, and her stepmum’s phones. She immediately knew what had happened, and she went to her father’s room to tell him about it.
While the affair was going on, Jess claims that her boyfriend took her keys and drove away. She then found her stepmum, who was left to confront him. After everything that she’s gone through, she’s happy with her new relationship.
