Following investigative journalist Donal Macintyre being branded a “lying, cheating, scumbag” by wife Ameera, sources close to the pair have said she has “got the wrong end of the stick”.
According to the Irish Daily Mail, the woman being linked to 49-year-old Donal is just a friend, and his wife has picked up the situation wrong.
Ameera took to her Facebook page on Tuesday evening to post an angry rant about her tv reporter husband, asking “How could you ruin this beautiful family?” after she found a series of messages on his mobile phone, it was claimed.
Reportedly, she saw red after she allegedly discovered texts and pictures from another woman, leading her to call Donal a “lying, cheating scumbag” on her FB profile.
According to sources, the Dancing on Ice star is denying affair accusations and has shut down his social media pages after the row became public in an effort to repair his relationship with his wife, who he has been married to since 2006.
Speaking to the Irish Daily Mail, a source stated: “On this matter she has fired first and we can’t be sure it isn’t a whole lot of nonsense.
“I have no reason to believe there is any validity to the claims that he is conducting an extramarital affair.
“All is not as it seems and everybody has got the wrong end of the stick.”
