‘I just want to heal – mum if you’re watching me.. shower me with your love and tell me if this is real. I know it can’t be my fault.. or is it? Is it really me? My eyes.. they aren’t able to see,

‘Please can someone help me.. why do I keep going back? Why is it like an addiction. A mental attack?

‘I can’t seem to break the cycle.. but I’m scared of being alone. I don’t have anyone around me.. he says all I do is moan.

Tom was released in December after three months and will serve the rest of his term on Home Detention Curfew.

Tom was the father of Malin’s baby girl Consy, who tragically died with a heart defect in January 2019, just one month after being delivered at 33 weeks.  

Malin met Tom in late 2017, shortly after she lost her mum, also named Consy, to breast cancer. 

She’s since had time to reflect on her relationship with Tom and says they formed a ‘trauma bond’ amid her grief and depression at the loss of her mum.

In June 2020, Malin spoke about the abuse and emotional torment she suffered while being in the on/off relationship during 2018.

She said: ‘It started with things being thrown in my face out of anger – food, bottles of water, whatever was in his hand, all out of anger. 

‘He switched from zero to 100 within seconds. Once they think they can do that to you, it escalates.’   

In the same month, Malin posted a lengthy Instagram post, captioned: ‘The third and final lot, I am NOT a victim anymore.’

Calling their romance ‘toxic and unhealthy’, she said ‘it has been an ongoing battle to emotionally let go as dealing with the grief from both my mum and daughter I’ve had him as my comforter.’

Accusing Kemp of emotional and physical abuse she said: ‘Including being spat at, hit, pushed, kicked, scratched, spoken down to, controlled, manipulated, cheated and so much more I experienced the worst pain yet to come last night.’

Malin then claimed she had received a phone call from a woman asking why the star had been texting her ‘boyfriend.’

She wrote: ‘After a calm and collected call with her we had finally came to the confirmation they have been speaking since January (when our daughter was in intensive care).’

‘While I’ve been focusing on my mental health I’ve been receiving multiple emails, calls, texts from one extreme to the other (I’m a bad mum, my mum hates me I’m going to hell to the extreme of I love you I can’t be without you etc. 

‘This ladies is a fine example of a narcissistic man.

‘I will NOT be another victim to domestic violence, I will not be beaten mentally or physically when I’ve fought through so much worse than this.

Adding that she was ‘exhausted, heartbroken and confused’ she urged her followers to ‘listen to your gut and learn to love yourself.’
