Block star Jess Eva has revealed the shocking moment when she discovered that her fiancé was living a double life with four secret wives.
The Triple M radio personality – who has been in a serious relationship with her current fiancé Norm Hogan for the past 10 years – shared details about her romantic past after meeting a guy in the Maldives in her younger years.
Speaking to Jana Hocking’s Kinda Sorta Dating podcast, Jess – who worked at a resort – said she got engaged after she ‘fell in love with the idea more than the guy’.
‘I was a snorkeling guide and he was a surf guide … We were going to live the rest of our lives on an island and have little Maldivian babies,’ she said.

But it took a turn when she found out about his multiple marriages with four different women.
‘One of his friends came to me, which was a really big thing in the Maldivian community for someone to speak out against someone in the community,’ Eva said.
‘They said’ you just have to know he has four other wives and you’re queuing up to be his fifth ‘… I was queuing up to be his fifth and I had no idea,’ ‘she said.
After reflecting back on the relationship, Jess said she noticed he was quite ‘controlling’.
‘My cousin came to the Maldives and she came to the same resort I was working on and he said “you must not have a drink with her”, she said.
‘I noticed throughout the relationship, he became more and more controlling. When it happens gradually, you do not realize. ‘
