Did Tom Checketts Cheat on Malia White?

Malia White from “Below Deck Mediterranean” is asked by Andy Cohen if Tom Checketts cheated on her and she confirms the two are not together anymore.

Nearly a week after confirming her split from Tom Checketts on Instagram, Malia White opened up more about her recent breakup during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on September 28.

Malia shared that she is "very much single" these days and provided some more details on why things didn't work out for her and Tom. "This industry's tough. We worked a part for a long time," Malia said in the above clip. "Yeah, there are some bad apples out there."

Host Andy Cohen noted that Malia and Tom seemed like they were "all over each other" at the Below Deck Mediterranean Season 5 reunion, which was filmed a week or two prior to this interview. "My understanding was that you kind of were open while you were away and then you came back together, or maybe I was wrong?" Andy asked Malia, to which she replied, "I think I was wrong about that, too." 

When asked to elaborate, Malia said, "Tom and I are done. I'm single. That's the downside to this industry is that it's really tough to work apart and work on these boats, because obviously, you've seen attractions happen and things happen."

Later on in this episode of WWHL, Malia shared how she is doing as she goes through this breakup. "I'm good. I'm focused," she said in the below clip. "I don't want people to think this is yachting and this happens all the time. It's just distance, and it's s--t, but I'm focused on my career."
