It’s one thing to find out that your partner has been cheating on you, it’s an entirely different matter to learn they’ve been having an affair with one of your relatives.
But this is exactly what happened to Jamie Walker, a mum-of-two from the US.
The parent has gone viral on TikTok after sharing the shocking tale of how the day after her 33rd birthday she discovered her husband had been sleeping with her own mother – for five years.
In a series of videos, Jamie explained how it was her teenage son who first uncovered the truth in 2011 after he walked in on his dad and his grandmother having sex one day.
She said: “My son walked in on my now ex-husband with my mum – my flesh and blood mum – doing what they had been apparently doing for the last five years.
“There was a showdown, my son was like, ‘If you don’t tell her, I’m going to tell her.’
“My ex-husband decided he wanted to be the one to tell me, so he took me on a long drive, that ended at the parking lot of f***ing Walmart, we had a serious conversation and he told me what had been going on for the last five years.”
Jamie was devastated by the truth, but claims she couldn’t leave her husband right away due to financial constraints.
“I was in shock and I didn’t know what to do. I wasn’t in a position to financially take care of myself or the kids at that time, so we stuck it out and did therapy,” she admits.
The family later moved to Tennessee in a bid to put the past behind them and have a fresh start – but her husband couldn’t stay faithful and is said to have cheated on her again, this time with a 60-year-old co-worker.
The pair finally divorced in 2017 and her husband has since married the co-worker.
In additional clips, Jamie answers some of her followers’ burning questions – including how her son, who is now 25, handled everything.
“My son who was 16 at the time and had that traumatic experience of walking in on his dad and his grandma, he’s doing good, he struggled for a little bit.”
She said her son understandably doesn’t have a great relationship with his dad or grandma, but her daughter is still co-parented by her ex.
Jamie also opened up about what her relationship with her mum is like today, saying she cut her off completely for the first four years as she needed “space to heal” and didn’t want to deal with her “bulls***”.
She added that things have started to become more cordial between the two of them over the last year, but she still won’t engage in any conversation about her ex-husband.
