1000-lb Sisters star Tammy Slaton’s boyfriend Jerry Sykes is said to secretly be married to another woman.
Viewers have watched the 34-year-old’s relationship with her beau play out on the TLC show – with cameras seeing the moment he decided to call time on their romance.
In a chat with TMZ, he said the reason for his departure was because he needed closure on his marriage.
Jerry explained that he ‘felt guilty’ over how things are with wife Kia Russell-Rucker Sykes – who reportedly found out about his new romance when tuning into the show.
It is because of this, he claimed, that he can’t be the boyfriend that Tammy needs at the moment.
Speaking to the publication, Kia also explained they are separated but still in contact as he ‘helps her out financially’.
Taking aim at their situation, she branded Tammy a ‘home-wrecker’ over their relationship.
The star has yet to address the drama publicly, but has been active on social media since the claims came to light.
1000-lb Sisters follows Kentucky siblings Amy and Tammy – who have a combined weight of more than 1,000lbs – and their mission to lose weight.
The show centres around Amy, who weighs 406lbs and wants to start a family with her husband but is having trouble due to her health issues.
Tammy, who weighs 605lbs, was forced to move in with her sister an brother-in-law after being admitted to hospital.
She previously opened up about her sexuality, and told Jerry that she is pansexual on a recent episode, and was joined by sister Amy for support.
‘I am pansexual,’ she told her former beau, before explaining what this meant.
‘It means love is love. I would date anybody whether they’re transgender, straight, gay.’
‘It is what it is, Tammy. I still love you though,’ he responded.
Jerry later ended their relationship, but was adamant that her sexuality had nothing to do with it.
