A “love rat” who dated up to 10 women at once has been ambushed by two of them who formed an unlikely duo to gate crash another one of his dates.
They thought they had found true love but their new boyfriend was hiding a nasty secret. Now these heartbroken mums get their revenge.
The Casanova, Melbourne man Victor Latei, was left speechless when the pair awkwardly interrupted one of his many dates with a television crew in tow.
“What’s this? What’s going on?” he stammered, before trying to flee.
Latei strongly denies he has done anything wrong.
But the angry women, Tasma Master and Melanie Irving, were not about to let him get away so easily.
Dubbed the “Lonely Hearts Club”, Ms Master and Ms Irving are just two of the 10 women said to have been involved with Latei at the same time – four of them even bearing him four children.
So committed were their relationships that his name even appeared on the lease of a number of their homes.
They have now joined forces saying they want to ensure that others don’t fall prey to his philandering ways.
“Not long ago, maybe four weeks ago, he sat at the dining room table and said to my son ‘I’m going to marry your mother’,” Ms Master told A Current Affair of the security guard who often told the women that he was “working late’.
The single mother, who dated Latei for 15 months, said he made her feel like she was the only woman in his life.
What she didn’t realise was that at the same time Latei was in a long-term relationship with Ms Irving, with the couple of three years were engaged to wed.
A Facebook group was set up to warn other women and more victims continue to come forward, according to the page’s administrator.
The women have reported Latei to the police and are convinced they are victims of fraud.
