Zack Freeman’s drama on Married at First Sight Season 13 is starting to pale in comparison to the mess he’s in post-show.
After a tumultuous marriage with Michaela Clark, the pair ultimately chose to divorce and cut contact with one another.
Zack then struck up a relationship with fellow divorced co-star Bao, even capturing their first date on film for the Where Are They Now special.
News broke that Zack and Bao were dating, and MAFS fans were split with some loving that they were exploring a romantic connection and others feeling skeptical about the whole situation.
It seems the skeptics may have had a point, as Zack is now being accused of cheating on Bao with a woman in her early 20s who resides in Texas.
There’s been plenty of discussions, allegations, and new developments that have unfolded since this woman came forward in an attempt to expose what she claims are Zack’s true colors.
We’ve compiled the receipts that have been shared thus far. Here are the details surrounding this alleged cheating scandal.
Zack Freeman’s text exchanges with the mystery woman are unveiled
The woman, who has come forward about her sexual relationship with Zack that allegedly overlapped with his dating relationship with Bao, shared plenty of screenshots to Reddit in an effort to back her claims.
In one screenshot, the woman shows that Zack followed her on Instagram, suggesting Instagram is how she first connected with him.
In a series of text exchanges between her and Zack, she provided some insight into their relationship. In the first two text screenshots, she shows some of her and Zack’s first conversations, getting to know each other and planning a date.
In the next two text screenshots, their relationship appears to have been taken to a different level as the two gushed about how perfect they find each other to be and even had conversations that are quite sexual in nature.
Ironically, the woman writes, “There’s not a lot of genuine guys out there, and I don’t think u have any bad intentions, I don’t think u would hurt me” and Zack replies, “Nope! I’m a pretty honest guy.”
Bao is made aware of Zack’s outside relations
The woman Zack was allegedly involved with learned that Zack was also seeing Bao and she decided to send a message to Bao in her DMs.
The woman wrote, “Girl please tell me u aren’t dating Zack. I was just sleeping with him.”
Bao responded by asking for proof and the woman proceeded to share that she had text screenshots and offered to send them over. The woman also stated that Zack told her that he wasn’t dating anyone and she feels terrible.
Bao and the woman also had an over-the-phone talk, seemingly to discuss the situation further.
Finally, the woman shared a text screenshot of her confronting Zack for allegedly not being upfront, using her, and not informing her that he was dating someone else.
As the woman continues to take interviews and publicly share her side of the story, MAFS fans have also shared their thoughts on the matter in droves, and even some MAFS stars have thrown in their two cents as the situation just gets messier and messier.
Zack and Bao have not publicly addressed the scandal yet, but they have stopped following each other on Instagram, which is a telling sign.
If the rumors are true, it certainly is disappointing to see this behavior unfold and for several women to be hurt in the process of dealing with what appears to be a manipulator. Odds are there’s likely even more drama ahead for this relationship and the MAFS Season 13 cast.
Married at First Sight returns Wednesday, January 5th at 8/7c on Lifetime.
