The identity of Domenica Calarco’s mystery Italian boyfriend has been leaked online – and she is fuming.

The Married At First Sight star went to great lengths to keep her relationship with ‘Mr Napoli’ a secret after they started hooking up while she was on holiday in Italy.

But social media sleuths tracked him down and leaked his name and private Instagram photos to reality TV podcast So Dramatic this week.

In addition to revealing his full name, Andre Zitt, photos of Domenica and her boyfriend cuddling up were also published online.

The former makeup artist, 29, put out a furious statement on Instagram on Tuesday in which she slammed a ‘certain media outlet’ for sharing the information. 

She explained how she’d spoken about her holiday romance on her podcast Sit With Us, which she co-hosts with fellow MAFS star Ella Ding, but that Andre had made it clear he wanted to stay anonymous.

‘It was his wish to be kept private and to stay out of the spotlight,’ she began.

‘It has come to my attention that a certain media outlet has gone on some kind of hunt for information and found his identity and leaked photos that he has posted to his private Instagram account.’

She said Andre had been named even though she had expressly said he didn’t want to be, adding: ‘How am I supposed to have any kind of normal relationship if this s**t continues to happen?’

During an Instagram Q&A a few hours later, fans asked Domenica why she thought she could keep Andre’s identity secret considering her high profile and after sharing details of their relationship on her podcast.

She said her podcast is a personal account of her life and she has a right to discuss the men she dates, but that doesn’t give others permission to dig up further details. 

Domenica added that Andre had ‘no idea who I was’ when they met in Italy, and ‘he was thrust into this literally in the last two weeks’.

‘The podcast is part of my life, who I’m dating is part of my life and people are interested… [but] I’m telling people that he wants to not be out there, he wants to keep it private,’ she said.

‘And if people decide they want to go and try to find out who he is and write all these stories and leak photos, you’re just going against what I’m asking for.’

Domenica had announced her new romance on her podcast earlier this month, saying they met a few weeks ago while she was on holiday in Europe.

She explained she and co-host Ella had met Andre at a beach club on the island of Capri in early August.
