TOWIE star Maria Falcone has made a shocking revelation about the cause of his split from Lucy Mecklenburgh as he opens up about his suicide attempt.
Back when the pair split Lucy had cryptically said, "We didn't actually break up because of the cheating, we broke up because of something else. I can't say [what]. It's worse, really.
"I'll never say what he did. It's just not very nice. Mario's pushing me to my limit. I feel like I want to say, but I can't. I'll never get back with him. It's 100 per cent finished."
And now Mario wants to set the record straight for people who assumed he had done something horrible to her.
Speaking to Now magazine, Mario explained, "I didn't ever want to talk about this because it's not nice.
"I didn't want my family or friends to know. The only people who know what happened are my mum, my best mat Miller and my manager."
He continued: "But Lucy's been talking about this 'big, dark secret'. It's made people think I've done horrible things to her when I haven't."
Mario then explained that he took an overdose after he and Lucy separated due to the rumours that he'd cheated on her with one of the Sugar Hut Honeys.
He explained, "I took an overdose of 40 horrendously strong painkillers...I fell asleep and woke up at 5am being violently sick. I can't remember much, only that I was relieved when I woke up because I realised how f***ing stupid I'd been."
"I didn't cheat on her with them [the Sugar Hut Honeys] but I couldn't prove it. So I thought: 'F*** this, what's the use?"
Are we the only ones who didn't see that coming? We're glad Mario is okay.
