Sadly, there’s even more to Sarah Hyland and Matt Prokop’s breakup than obsessive behavior and claims of physical abuse! Star can exclusively reveal that the overly-jealous, struggling actor was even unfaithful to the Modern Family star during their five-year relationship.
“He cheated on her with two actress friends when she was in the hospital,” an insider reveals. “He recorded it, then left it for her to watch on her computer.”
Of course, the couple’s volatile relationship continued long after that. “They have been having problems for a long time, but every time she tried to end it he would go crazy and she’d be afraid, or he would cry and say he would change and she would feel sorry for him,” the source explains.
In August, the actress finally made the breakup official, and filed a restraining order against Matt due to her fear of his reaction. In he disturbing court documents, she recounts Matt’s physical and verbal abuse toward her, and flat out states, “I am in fear for my safety.”
Earlier this week, Matt was released from rehab and sent back to his parents’ house in Texas, news that’s just causing more worry for Sarah. “She’s terrified,” an insider tells Star. “Matt was far from stable before rehab and she’s worried that if he’s out, there’s a good chance he’ll try contacting her.”
