Texts 'prove Tara Pavlovic bragged about assaulting Sam Cochrane’

By Hayley August 9, 2018

A journalist claims that text messages from Bachelor In Paradise star Tara Pavlovic feature her ‘bragging’ about physically assaulting her ex-fiance, Sam Cochrane.

Journalist Laura Evans, appearing on the Woman's Day Uncensored podcast, claims the 28-year-old nanny sent the texts to her Bachelor In Paradise co-stars:

“[Sam] had all these crazy text messages that [Tara] had been sending to friends bragging about the fact that she had bitten him... [and] punched him fully in the face.

“She'd told other people on
The Bachelor that she'd done that, and it's just kind of crazy that she was so proud of it.”

On Monday, Woman’s Day ran a story where Sam alleged Tara had physically and verbally abused him while they were a couple.

Tara has mocked the claims, with her friend Sian Kelly releasing a video recorded by Sam asking her to frogive his behaviour.

Tara and Sam’s Bachelor so-stars have been divided in their support, with various contestants siding with one or the other.

The couple were engaged during the season finale of Bachelor In Paradise, which aired in April. They officially announced their split in June.
