1000-lb Sisters star Tammy Slaton allegedly knew her boyfriend Jerry Sykes was married when they began dating.
According to Jerry’s wife Kia Russell-Rucker Sykes, the 32-year-old TLC star ‘didn’t care’ that her partner was in a relationship.
Speaking to The Sun, Kia confirmed she found out about her husband’s adulterous relationship when the reality show aired.
She stated: ‘We are married, but we are not together cause he went on that show. “He told me if I [file for divorce] he will not sign the papers.’
Kia told the publication that she believes Jerry wants to get back together, however she plans to stay seperated.
She continued: ‘I don’t think I can forgive him anymore. We have seven kids together. They are upset with him.’
As for her message to Tammy, she said: ‘Thanks a lot for messing my life!’
Viewers have watched Tammy’s relationship with her former 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.

Tammy has yet to address the drama publicly but has been active on social media since the claims came to light.
