How to Handle a Jealous Ex When They Find Out About Your Hot New Relationship: Part 2

I ignored my cell phone ring­ing two or three times. I knew it was my lover and my boss, Mr. Brown, call­ing to check up on me and make sure I had made it home safely and that the girls were happy to be home. Unfor­tu­nately, I couldn’t answer it because I was stand­ing face-to-face with my ex-husband and he was at my new home, that I was just gifted from my boss.

My ex had a look of con­fu­sion on his face and imme­di­ately started with the ques­tions. Where did I get the money for a house pay­ment? Who really paid for my vaca­tion with the girls? He knew I had a lit­tle bit of sav­ings, but cer­tainly not enough for a house. I had to come clean.

I let him know that my boss of years had become my new love inter­est. I told him about the vaca­tion and I told him about the girls meet­ing him as my boyfriend for the first time. He was so pissed. I could tell by the look on his face. He started yelling that I had prob­a­bly been cheat­ing on him when we were mar­ried. He knew how afflu­ent Mr. Brown and his wife were in the com­mu­nity, so he threat­ened to run and tell Mr. Brown’s wife and all the peo­ple at the firm I worked at. I told him they were already aware of the rela­tion­ship between us and that Mrs. Brown wasn’t keep­ing well and did not need him stir­ring up any unnec­es­sary drama or issues. My phone rang again, and this time I answered it. My ex-husband knew who it was, but I couldn’t ignore the calls anymore.

I picked up the phone and said, “Hello.” It was Mr. Brown, he said he had rode by the house and seen a famil­iar vehi­cle in my dri­ve­way, but that it looked sus­pi­cious, since we had just got­ten home. I told him it was my ex-husband drop­ping by to see the kids. I didn’t want to alarm him and cause any more issues for the time being. I walked into the liv­ing room, hop­ing that my ex wouldn’t hear my entire con­ver­sa­tion. This just angered him more. He started yelling at me, telling me he would take the kids away from me and that I didn’t deserve to have cus­tody of my chil­dren if I was plan­ning on jet-setting across the coun­try with my boss. He kept yelling that Mr. Brown was prob­a­bly cheat­ing on me with mul­ti­ple other women.

I tried to just ignore him and focus on my con­ver­sa­tion with Mr. Brown. I heard him yelling for the girls, ask­ing them ques­tions about our vaca­tion. At that point, I hung up the phone with Mr. Brown. I didn’t want any more drama. Mr. Brown imme­di­ately sent me a text mes­sage and reminded me that he was one of the best lawyers in the state, and that my ex-husband wouldn’t be tak­ing my kids away from me ever.

I went back into the room and told my ex that my new rela­tion­ship was not any of his con­cern and that every­thing was fine. He looked at me with a look of dis­gust, but I knew that I was going to leave on another busi­ness trip soon and my ex would be tak­ing care of the kids. So, I needed to be civil with him for the sake of my kids. But I knew that this was just one of the issues that me and my sugar daddy/boss would be expe­ri­enc­ing in our rela­tion­ship over the next cou­ple of months.
