The businesswoman — who has two children, Aurelia, three, and Bodhi, two, with Tom — explained, “I know I did everything for Tom.

Kelsey is now dating new boyfriend Sean Boggans, 39, with the couple allegedly meeting when she took a break with friends in Lindos, Rhodes, in September.
“It’s very early days and no one knows what the future holds, but for now Kelsey is happy that someone else has come into her life,” a source said.
It was also revealed that in 2013 electrician Sean was imprisoned and killed a stranger with a single blow while waiting for a taxi outside East London.
He spent time behind bars after fatally beating Shaun McDermott, 44, during a heated argument over a taxi outside the Havering Oak pub in Romford.
Sean was waiting for his then-girlfriend to pick him up when an argument broke out with the 44-year-old, who was knocked to the ground during the skirmish. Camera images later show how the electrician walked away from the scene.
