Did Metul Shah cheat on Naomie Olindo? The Southern Charm beauty seemed to have it all – and a good-looking anesthesiologist boyfriend was at the top of the list. But just a month after moving to New York City together, Naomie took to Instagram to share news of the emotional split.
According to the Southern Charm star, Naomie and Metul broke up due to unconfirmed infidelity, which she says is almost as bad as “losing my dad.”
In a teary-eyed Instagram story posted Monday, Naomie wrote that “nothing will be worse than losing my dad but this is a close second.” The reality star can be seen cuddling up with her cute cat as she looks into the camera with red, blotchy eyes. “Betrayal is never easy for anyone and I’m sorry to anyone else that has stumbled across those terrible messages.”
Though the Instagram story doesn’t confirm Metul Shah, 29, cheated it seems that’s what the South Charm alum is saying. Those “terrible messages” may be texts to another lady, someone Metul found after moving to the Big Apple.
“I’m absolutely positive I will regret posting this tomorrow but so many of you have reached out saying you’re feeling a similar pain,” she concluded in the post. “I’m so so sorry.”
Naomie Olindo’s Instagram story came just hours after BestofBravo reported Naomie had uncovered the truth about Metul – the news outlet claimed it was his infidelity that caused the bombshell breakup. Even worse, the 28-year-old reality show alum had just moved across the country with Metul Shah, living in a cute apartment while they awaited their permanent castle.
Naomie’s agent, Paul Desisto, confirmed that the two were “no longer together,” but refrained from explaining the cause. Speculation swirled, with many believing the cheating rumors. Now it seems Naomie is shedding light on the breakup, and that Metul’s cheating is the reason for her teary selfie.
The announcement, which was confirmed on Monday, came less than a month after the two moved to New York City together. Since then, Naomie Olindo has moved back to “Charleston and plans to stay there for the time being,” according to Paul.
The breakup was hinted at for a couple of weeks. In early July, Naomie not-so-cryptically removed her Instagram pics with Metul, taking down any love-filled snaps with the beloved doctor. It was then learned that Naomie stopped following Metul Shah’s Instagram account, and though Metul hadn’t removed his couple-filled pictures from the social media site, he also stopped following Naomie.
The timing of the breakup is surely odd, especially since Naomie only exited Southern Charm last year and moved to the Big Apple less than a month ago. In June, the couple also had a wonderful time during an excursion in Antigua and Barbuda, in which they posted plenty of PDA pictures for the world to see. Fans were sure that Metul and Naomie would get engaged and married.
Naomie has been unlucky in love over the years. While on Southern Charm she and co-star Craig Conover broke up after a tumultuous three-year relationship. While together, Naomie complained that Craig had no ambition, and was upset that his professional life was empty.
Finally, the two broke up. But fans quickly fell in love with Naomie’s new beau, Metul. It felt like the two would take on the world together, especially since Metul filled all of Naomie’s professional needs – he got major points for being a sexy doctor.
As many Southern Charm fans know, Craig was heartbroken about his breakup with Naomie. Could the exes rekindle their relationship? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
