When Tom Brooks was called out for frauding on his Instagram page, it raised many questions for fans of 90 Day Fiancé. They began to wonder exactly how much the reality star was hiding from them and Darcey Silva. Now, with Silva and Brooks both appearing in the trailer for 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 4, it seems there are still more secrets to be uncovered.
One shocking revelation that flew more or less quietly under the radar is the fact that Tom Brooks already has a child — not unlike Darcey Silva herself. Yet, fans might remember that they went largely unmentioned on the show.
Tom Brooks was caught lying on Instagram
During his tenure on 90 Day Fiancé with Darcey Silva, Tom Brooks posted frequently to Instagram. His posts suggested he lived something of a luxury lifestyle. However, it turns out this might not have been altogether true.
Tom Brooks was caught passing off other peoples’ Instagram content as his own, suggesting that their luxuries were in fact his. The Instagram account fraudedbytlc captured some of Brooks’ more embarrassing moments.
The Instagram account posted a side-by-side of one of Tom Brooks’ post, and the original post by lvip_mario. In this particular post, Brooks passed off a box of Louis Vuitton fragrances as his own, captioning it, “Love my new fragrances, thank you so much.” The original poster noticed, and laughed about it on his own page.
Fraudedbytlc posted several other similar examples, with side-by-side comparisons showing the original content and the corresponding repeat on Brooks’ page.
Tom Brooks already has a kid
Tom Brooks’ behavior on Instagram had many 90 Day Fiancé fans wondering exactly how much of his life was true to what he portrayed on the show. Many began to wonder if there was much more to him than they were aware.
Those feelings were amplified when fans learned that Tom Brooks had a daughter he’d never mentioned on the show. It was not common knowledge at all. Fans found out about his daughter from Brooks’ mother’s Instagram posts.
His mother posted a young boy, and a fan asked, “So cute! Is he Tom’s son?”
His mother replied, “No, my daughter’s son. Tom has a daughter.”
Fans were shocked. One Reddit user wrote, “If this is true, just toss him in the pile of sh*tty 90 day ‘parents.’ I mean, he didn’t really deny a child’s existence, but he’s never acknowledged her either. And he sure as hell doesn’t seem to spend any time with her either when he’s traveling and taking bathroom selfies. Or little videos in stores showing off his shoes. That said, I’m all for leaving the kids off this show.”
Another added, “It’s one thing to keep your kids off the show, it’s a whole ’nother thing to never mention a kid, nor have any evidence of having a kid! It goes from keeping your kid safe to being flat out ashamed of the child’s existence.”
Coming back for more ‘90 Day Fiancé’
In something of a twist, it turns out Tom Brooks will be returning to the 90 Day Fiancé franchise — with Darcey Silva, no less. However, the two are very clearly not together. In fact, it seems there’s trouble brewing.
In the trailer, Silva approaches Brooks in a restaurant. After she denies a hug from Brooks, the two sit down. Silva tells producers, “I don’t trust Tom, I feel like he’s hiding something.”
She then asks Brooks, “Isn’t there something you have to tell me?”
What is it that Brooks is about to reveal? Only time will tell. The new season of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days premieres on February 23 at 8 p.m. EST.
