EXCLUSIVE: Love Triangle’s Lisa Leaño and Patrick Hong confirms SPLIT after just two months together – amid claims he had a ‘secret girlfriend’ waiting for him on the outside
Love Triangle’s Lisa Leaño has confirmed that she has split from her partner Patrick Hong after less than two and a half months together.
The Perth-based accounts payable worker, 32, told Daily Mail Australia that the pair decided to go their separate ways in August.
Lisa said that just three days after the show wrapped filming, Patrick told her he needed to travel to Canada for work and would be open to a long-distance relationship only for his story to change several days later.
Lisa then began to notice red flags and inconsistencies in his stories and the way he treated her.
‘I am the type of person that is very black and white. I’m as authentic and as honest as possible and I’m not just gonna go into a relationship for the sake of pleasing everyone else for a TV show,’ she explained.
‘I’m not that type of person.’
Leaño explained that at one point she was even open to the idea of relocating to Melbourne should things have panned out better.
‘I definitely, genuinely did see something there with Patrick because I knew he was from Melbourne and I wanted things to work out.’
It comes as a friend close to Lisa claimed that Patrick showed hinted that he had ‘mentally checked out’ sooner than he led on.
‘Pat originally said he was going to Canada in September/October, and then all of a sudden was like I’m going next week,’ they said.
‘He told different cast members different things about their relationship. He would tell some of them he was single, while telling others they were happy in love.’
‘Lisa had get out of the relationship because Patrick was just gaslighting her the entire time, and when something wasn’t in his favor, he would just get really frustrated and angry… it was very toxic for both parties.’
‘He was just waiting for his moment to end things with Lisa so he could announce his relationship with his new girlfriend.’
The insider claimed Pat was only on that show for one reason, and it was ‘just to boost his profile’.
‘It’s been his dream to become this full-time fitness influencer and not have to work a proper job,’ they said.
When asked for comment, Patrick said ‘Lisa is a top girl, I wish her, and whoever she does to be with the very best in health and abundance.’
Love Triangle, the Stan original dating series, is available to be streamed on Stan.
