Moving on. After Malia White break up from her boyfriend of multiple year, Tom Checketts, amid dishonest allegations she made on Below Deck Mediterranean, she’s revealing all in regards to the nature of their breakup.
White, 31, solely reveals to Us Weekly what went down between the 2 Bravo stars.
“Yeah, we were, you know, working on different boats,” she tells Us. “It was in the pandemic [that] had just happened. So, it was impossible for us to see each other. It was right when the show is coming out, it’s obviously a lot going on in our lives. And, yeah, he found someone else on his boats, and I didn’t know for a couple of months.”
The bosun added that she realized of his rumored infidelity “through a friend” earlier than “all hell broke loose” between the 2 of them, although Checketts has not publicly responded to White’s claims.
“He’s very sorry,” the Bravo TV persona provides about their relationship now. “He’s apologetic. He wants to get back with me, but wow, not for me.”
While the chef is open to giving their relationship one other shot, White reveals she’s not proper now. She even admits that she hasn’t spoken to him since they had been filming the Bravo actuality collection and appears again about how issues may have been completely different.
“You learn; you live and you learn,” she says. “I think, in hindsight, I probably would not have loved for him to come on the show. I was never really dying to work with him on the show. I kind of wished we would’ve kept those two things separate. I think that would have helped our relationship a lot.”
White first confirmed she was single in September 2020 through a two-part Instagram video, titled, “PSA 🖤.”
“My personal life seems to be quite the topic at the moment,” she wrote on the time. “I am not on Twitter. I don’t do a lot of Instagram Lives, so I thought I would send out a message in my own words.” She continued, “Yes, Tom and I have split. The details surrounding all of it I am trying to keep a little private just out of respect to him and I. But yes, I am single.”
Two days prior, the truth star seemingly known as herself single in an Instagram submit.
“Cheers to all the ladies out there in their 30’s, single, focused on their careers & that give zero f*cks! 👊⚓️ #stayfocused.”
