On Monday night's episode of Bachelor In Paradise, Lisa Hyde and Luke McLeod chose to exit the Fijian island to focus on their romance outside of the TV show, but now after it was confirmed that the silver fox cheated, new sources claim the woman of his new affections was a 19-year-old.
According to Confidential, a source close to the former couple revealed made the relationship-ending move on a boys night out.
“He was out with the lads and hooked up with a 19-year-old girl,” the insider said.
“He is in his mid-‘30s and he is still making stupid decisions like this.”
While either of them is yet to respond to the claims, Luke, 33, did take to Instagram to make a public apology on April 17.
"Hey guys, sorry it’s taken me a while to update you guys on Lisa and I..." he began.
"It’s obviously been a tough month or so. You know I struggled making that decision with Lisa and we did try and make it our on the outside, get into a debate around he said she said and all the different reasons that lead to how things broke down. Out of respect for her, I think it’s just best to say that I stuffed up and I’m sorry.”
"I feel like I’ve let a lot of people down, my friends and family and all you guys and obviously Lisa. I hope that you guys can understand somehow the pressures these situations can cause and that we all make mistakes."
Meanwhile, when WHO spoke to Lisa, 31, she kept tight-lipped about the situation and confirmed she's remaining positive about love and focussing on her business.
"We kind of spent nearly every day together when we first came out – we were in a little bit of a love bubble," she recounted her steps after the two chose to exit the show.
"We were really happy and we were doing a lot of different things together but you know it’s kind of out of my control… It’s hard. You know we did date for a couple of months and then we broke up for certain reasons. Yeah, I’m kind of in a position where I’m happy and moving on."
"I think people just make mistakes and that’s what’s happened in this case – obviously, there are rumours out there and I won’t go into too much detail – I think people know where they make mistakes and they, unfortunately, in this case, it didn’t work out in my favour.
"I’m alright [now], I’m a very happy person. I keep myself busy with my job."
