My Big Fat Fabulous Life fans accuse Whitney Way Thore of FAKING engagement for reality TV amid cheating scandal

MY Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Way Thore fans think they smell a rat in her engagement bust up.

The 36-year-old TLC star – who revealed this week that her engagement ended after her fiance fathered a child with another woman – is accused by some followers of faking the romance for ratings.

Whitney announced their split on May 22, and said that life has been challenging since she found out the news for herself – and limited comments on the post.

Some suspicious fans reckon the announcement was far too laid back and unemotional to be for real.

A thread on Reddit added fuel to the fire when the writer claimed to have been on the same flight as the pair shortly after their engagement in Paris.

The user alleged that she noticed Whitney and Chase were not seated together on the plane and appeared to go their separate ways once they deplaned.

The writer also claimed that Whitney was sitting in first class while Chase sat in economy, which set conspiracy theorists on the trail.

Other users accused Whitney of faking the romance and said that Chase had a long-term girlfriend all along.

Their theory is that it was only when she fell pregnant that it became necessary to drop the charade.

Another claimed it was the tip of the iceberg on what isn't real about the reality show.

The wild theories come after Thore posted on Instagram about her hurt at now ex-fiance Chase Severino fathering a child with another woman.

“I learned this news myself fairly recently," she told People on Tuesday.

"It wasn’t something I’d been sitting with for months and months, but once I saw rumors about our relationship — after I finally deleted our photos on Instagram, for example — I knew I just wanted to get it over with and announce it so I could fully start to move on."

She told the publication how she's reacted to finding out that Severino hadn't just cheated but would become a father in the fall.

“It’s a difficult thing to navigate – honestly, I would have rather not said it, just to avoid the inevitable backlash and gossip, but at the same time, people in their lives already knew of course and a baby isn’t something that can remain private in the future,” the TLC star said.

“I definitely didn’t want it to look like I wasn’t aware of the full situation, but at the same time, I truly just don’t want the drama and the gossip.

“I’m hurting and all of that just compounds it. I’m looking forward to a more positive future," she told the publication.

She explained that since she revealed the news, she's found it difficult.

“It’s difficult for strangers to have such strong opinions about something so personal, and even though so many people have been incredibly nice and sympathetic, it doesn’t really make the day to day much easier,” she told them.

She told the publication that she has had the support of friend Buddy Bell, during lockdown.

“Luckily, Buddy has been with me for the last month,” she says. “I still haven’t left the house due to coronavirus, so he grocery shops and cooks and it’s been great not to be physically alone during this time since I’m not able to see my family and other friends.”

Last month the star chose to announce the news of their break-up with a photo of a black screen and detailed caption, which explained Severino is expecting a child with another woman.

"Chase and I are no longer engaged," the 36-year-old reality star wrote at the time.

"After experiencing a lot of ups and downs and still living apart, Chase reconnected with a woman with whom he has had a long history."

She added that her former fiancé only "recently" shared the news that his relationship "resulted in a pregnancy."

"Chase will be a father in October," Whitney, who got engaged in October 2019, revealed.

Season 7 of the series aired its final episode on TLC on March 31, 2020. It's likely that Season 8 won't premiere until January 2021.
