The Block star Jess Eva has revealed the shocking moment she discovered 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 over the past 10 years – shared details about her romantic past after she met a guy in the Maldives during her younger years.

Speaking to Jana Hocking’s Kinda Sorta Dating podcast, Jess – who was working at a resort – said she got engaged after she fell ‘in love with the idea more than the guy’.

‘I was a snorkel guide and he was a surf guide… We were going to live the rest of our life on an island and have little Maldivian babies,’ she said.

But things took a turn for the worse 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 need to know that he’s got four other wives and you’re in line to be his fifth”… I was in line to be his fifth and I had no idea,’ she said.

Reflecting back at the relationship, Jess said she noticed he was quite ‘controlling’.

‘My cousin came over to the Maldives and she came to the same resort I was working at and he said “you’re not allowed to go for a drink with her”,’ she said.

‘I noticed throughout the relationship, he was getting more and more controlling. When it happens gradually, you don’t realise.’

Eventually, she decided to leave the resort after she ended their engagement.

‘Thank goodness it happened to me when I was young, I feel that with youth comes a little more resilience and a little bit more naivety of what the world is like,’ she said.

‘It took me years to regain my confidence.’
