Infidelity is the reason behind the shocking divorce of Biggest Loser couple Stephanie Anderson and Sam Poueu, an insider tells People magazine. According to the source, Poueu admitted to cheating on Anderson while they were dating and even after their wedding last April.
“Stephanie felt they weren’t connecting and decided they should go to counseling. It was getting dire,” the insider reveals. “In one of the counseling sessions, Sam thought he would make it better by confessing. He [admitted] that he had cheated on her with multiple women throughout the course of their courtship and marriage. He told her everything.”
It was after Poueu’s confession that Anderson, who is currently 7 months pregnant with their first child together, decided to file for divorce. She announced the split this week.
Poueu has refused to comment on the reports. “The circumstances and specifics of our marriage and our separation are extremely difficult and private,” he said. “Our focus is on Stephanie’s continued health through her pregnancy and the delivery of our son. We are excited to be blessed as his parents and are focusing all of our energy and attention on doing what is best for his future. He is the most important person right now to both of us.”
Poueu, 28, and Anderson, 33, met on season 9 of The Biggest Loser.
