Cheryl Maitland is dealing with heartbreak on Valentine’s Day after she busted her fiancé sending flirty texts to one of her friends.

In an Instagram Story video posted on Monday, the former Married At First Sight shared a video of herself wandering down a beach while listening to the track Brightest Stars by Jeffrey East.

‘On repeat,’ she wrote alongside the clip, followed by a broken-heart emoji.

In the snippet of the song she played, East sings: ‘Somebody turned the lights out on you / Made you feel like they didn’t want you / Left you in the shadows of a broken truth.’

Maitland leaked a series of texts on Sunday that allegedly showed her fiancé Dean Gibbs, a disgraced former Victoria Police officer-turned-plumber, planning to meet up with blonde hairdresser Maria Pepi at the beach for a coffee and swim.

She posted the DMs on Instagram, then called Gibbs and Pepi ‘dogs’ and said she ‘hopes the sharks get these two’ next time they go to the beach together.

Maitland’s angry reaction suggests Gibbs may not have told her he was catching up with one of her mates. Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting any infidelity took place.

He also appears to have tried to conceal the texts on his phone by saving Pepi under a man’s name, ‘Andrew Galata – Burleigh.’ 

However, Maitland was allegedly able to prove he was texting her friend by cross-refencing the number for Pepi on Gibbs’ phone with Pepi’s number in her own contacts.

The leaked texts, which had a flirtatious tone, centred on Pepi and Gibbs planning meet-ups as recently as last month, including one time when they arranged to go for a ‘crazy’ sunrise swim and coffee together.

‘The forecast is cloudy Monday and Tuesday. How about we do Wednesday??’ Gibbs wrote to Pepi in texts allegedly exchanged last month. 

‘Yea Wednesday is good. What time and location,’ Pepi replied. 

‘Wanna be crazy and do a sunrise swim???’ Gibbs then wrote. ‘Or do you wanna do it in comfort with a warm coffee?’

Pepi responded: ‘Let’s do both. Coffee on the beach then a swim.’

Maitland then shared another text message exchange in which Gibbs joked about having to ‘save’ Pepi from a rip in the ocean. 

‘Broadbeach near you? Maybe out front of the Kurrawa surf club?’ Gibbs suggested.

‘Yes!!! Locked and loaded, added it in my calendar,’ Pepi replied. 

‘That means it’s official. Hopefully you get caught in a rip so I can rescue you,’ Gibbs joked to the glamorous blonde. 

‘Hahaha omg I’d be so scared, shark bait,’ Pepi wrote, adding a string of laughing emojis. ‘You better rescue me lol,’ she added.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Maitland, Gibbs and Pepi for comment.

Maitland and Gibbs became engaged in March last year; he announced the news on Instagram with the caption: ‘Pop the champagne, she’s changing her last name!’

The couple began dating in 2017, shortly after she failed to find love on MAFS’ fourth season with her two husbands, Jonathan Troughton and Andrew Jones.

Almost a decade ago, ex-cop Gibbs was handed a one-year suspended jail sentence after pleading guilty to trafficking and using cocaine, as well as possessing steroids and ecstasy.

Gibbs, who retrained as a plumber after leaving the police force, pleaded guilty to five drug-related charges in the Melbourne Magistrates Court in 2014.

His mother Karen told Daily Mail Australia in March 2017 her son had worked hard to build a new life for himself ever since he narrowly avoided jail.

‘That is all in the past… he’s moved on from all of that,’ she said of his criminal conviction.

‘He has worked very hard to build a new life; he’s got a successful plumbing business and he’s very proud of that,’ she added. 

According to previous reports, the former constable had started dealing drugs after his salary was unable to cover the cost of his cocaine habit.

Gibbs faced more than 15 years in jail but pleaded guilty to trafficking and possession charges, and also failing to store ammunition appropriately.

He resigned from the police force in disgrace and took up a position as a plumbing apprentice.
