90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days returnee Tom Brooks faces backlash over a comment about Darcey Silva’s weight. Viewers watched as Tom took a jab at his ex-girlfriend’s figure following a heated confrontation. Now, the British reality star offered a public apology but was vague and didn’t mention Darcey.
90 Day Fiance: Darcey Silva Confronts Tom Brooks
On Sunday’s episode of Before the 90 Days, Darcey Silva finally came face to face with Tom Brooks. The former lovebirds met in New York in hopes of settling things once and for all. But Darcey’s meeting with Tom did not end on pleasant terms.
Darcey Silva confronted Tom Brooks about having another woman, which he did not deny. Tom confessed that he met someone new while spending time apart from Darcey. Then, Tom said he didn’t tell 90 Day Fiance star Darcey about that woman because he’s “confused about a few things”.
Tom Admits Meeting Someone New on Before the 90 Days
Tom Brooks goes on to reveal that the other woman, Shannon, is from Milan, Italy. The 90 Day Fiance star met her three weeks before seeing Darcey Silva in NYC. He added that his new girl loves him the way he wants. You can see the pics of him and the other woman below, courtesy of Frauded by TLC. But that’s over now and Tom’s with a new love, Amanda McAdams, as they ride out the quarantine in NYC.
Then, instead of apologizing to Darcey on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, Tom turned the conversation around and seemingly blamed her. He said Darcey was “so preoccupied” with Jesse Meester. Tom Brooks reminded her that she talks about her Dutch ex-boyfriend to the point it looks obsessive.
90 Day Fiance: Loves Darcey as a Sister – Takes a Jab at Her Weight
Tom Brooks goes on to explain that he doesn’t meet Darcey Silva’s notion of love. As if that wasn’t enough, the 90 Day Fiance alum told his now ex-girlfriend that his love for her is dissimilar to that of Jesse Meester’s. He said bluntly, “I love you in a different way”. He dropped the bombshell that he loves her “like my sister”.
As expected, it did not sit well with Darcey Silva. After all, it’s worse than being friend-zoned. So, when Tom Brooks suggested they maintain a friendship despite the drama, she was quick to say no thanks. It looks like Tom didn’t take Darcey’s rejection well because, out of the blue, he asked if Darcey Silva “put weight on”. That insensitive comment had fans raging.
Tom Apologizes Over Weight Remark – Blames Editing
Tom Brooks’ thoughtless remark about Darcey Silva gaining weight instantly drew negative comments. The 90 Day Fiance Brit was bombarded with criticism for body-shaming his ex. First, Darcey’s former boyfriend said it was a result of misleading editing and said the show took his words out of context.
Still, he admitted if the words didn’t come out of his mouth, then TLC couldn’t use them. But, Tom Brooks also apologized for both his words and actions. He even took full responsibility for what he said, adding that it was “very inappropriate”. However, it is worth noting that he did not directly apologize to Darcey Silva — at least in his post.
