Former South Sydney Rabbitohs captain and SAS Australia 2021 celebrity recruit Sam Burgess finds himself in hot water yet again as damning new details emerge about his split from wife and former journalist Phoebe Burgess.

In episode 101 of So Dramatic! With Megan Pustetto a source spilled some piping hot tea about the affair that caused the couple’s relationship to crumble while Phoebe was pregnant with the couple’s first child, Poppy!

“Sam cheated on Phoebe during a boys’ trip in Melbourne for his younger brother George‘s buck’s party,” the source said of the event which allegedly took place over the last weekend of November 2016. “I was attending the hen’s party for Jessie Murphy, the wife of Carlton AFL player Marc Murphy.

“Sam and his brother just so happened to be at the same pub for George’s buck’s party,” the source dished. “The group of guys started talking to the group of girls and then we all started drinking together. After the pub, we all went to a strip club and then it ended back at a hotel room with everyone.”

The source explained that over the course of the evening, Sam got a little too cosy with one of the women attending the hen’s party, who he allegedly slept with once the group arrived back at the hotel. The source told So Dramatic! that the hook-up extended beyond a one-night stand and the pair continued to see each other over the course of six months. They also added that Phoebe was due to give birth just one month into the affair. Yikes!

“Sam would fly down to Melbourne regularly to see her. Every second weekend pretty much,” the source spilled. “When he wasn’t with her, they would be constantly texting, and even sexting”. Wow! Talk about going at it like Rabbit(oh)s!

The relationship allegedly ended after six months due to Sam feeling guilty about the affair, according to the insider, who also said that the NRL star had confided in his mistress that there had been other women he had cheated on Phoebe with aside from her.

“She didn’t care,” they said. “She knew what it was and told all her friends that the sex was great. She didn’t care that he was married.”

Our source also alleged that the woman in question has previously been accused of having affairs with football players in the past, some of which have been the subject of several news headlines.

“Some of her friends turned on her at the time because they didn’t agree with what she was doing and thought it was heavy that she knowingly slept with someone who had a pregnant partner,” the source said.

This wouldn’t be the first time Sam has found himself at the centre of an unsavoury situation. In 2018 the rugby league player was previously embroiled in a sex scandal involving several South Sydney NRL players after they allegedly exposed themselves to a 23-year-old woman using Sam’s social media account.

In a trailer for SAS Australia 2021, Sam can be seen breaking down during the interrogation portion of the Special Forces reality series, confessing he “turned to drinking, drugs” and “lost it all” after being arrested for being driving under the influence of cocaine in February 2021 following his ugly divorce from Phoebe. He was previously found guilty of intimidating his former father-in-law Mitchell Hooke, but the charges were quashed in May this year

Sam is expected to open up on his recent downfall on this year’s SAS Australia, and we can’t wait to hear what he has to say about all of this drama!
