A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY how the Real Housewives of Atlanta star caught him red-handed!
Kenya Moore Breakup: How She Discovered Married Boyfriend’s ‘Double Life’
“Kenya couldn’t believe James got married a week after their episode of Millionaire Matchmaker aired on Bravo,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She really connected with him and saw a bright future together. Kenya was kept in the dark about his marriage because James and Kenya had been long-distance ever since they met on the show. He lives out west and she’s in Atlanta, so he’s been living this double life. While he’s been married, he kept up a relationship with Kenya over texts and phone calls.”
After some investigation, Kenya realized James had been straying several months into their romance. She noticed some red flags in their relationship that she could no longer ignore. Poor girl!
“Kenya was anxious to get some face time with James again, so she kept mentioning how they should meet up in person soon, either in L.A. or Atlanta,” our insider explains. “James kept pushing it off and Kenya just felt something wasn’t right. So she did some snooping on social media and connected the dots and found out that he was actually married! This all happened in the last couple days. She was pissed! She confronted him about it and he had no other choice but to fess up.”
No one messes with Miss Moore and gets away with it!!
Kenya revealed the mortifying news about James’ marital status to her 423k followers on Instagram, on May 12.
She wrote, “Unfortunately, I just learned today that the man I met and fell in love with from Millionaire Matchmaker was married a week after the show aired. I am astounded and devastated to have learned of this news VIA social media as opposed to from him directly. However, I still believe in love and my heart remains open to the man God has for me. I wish him well.”
While the former Miss USA took the high road by wishing her ex well, it was a very tough pill to swallow at first.
“Kenya was so angry! She was heartbroken and definitely shed some tears over this, but she seems fine now. She is going to move on from this and just be more careful about the men she dates,” our source says. “Looking back on her relationship with James, it’s clear to her that he was just looking for his 15 minutes of fame. From now on, Kenya plans on keeping all dates and future relationships off-camera, that’s for sure.”
