Love Island USA fans believe that winner Caleb Corprew already had a new girlfriend after his split from Justine Ndiba (Picture: CBS)
Justine and Caleb made history as the first Black couple to win the popular reality dating show and their fans had been trying to figure out what went wrong between the pair after their announcements over the weekend.
After some sleuthing from followers, it appears Caleb spent Christmas with his family and a girl that definitely wasn’t Justine.
In a snap, which was taken from the TikTok account of the reality star’s sister, Caleb could be seen posing with his family and his rumored new girlfriend.
The group were decked out in matching festive pajamas in the cozy snap.
Then further investigation appeared to confirm that Caleb and his alleged new lady were together at a party on New Year’s Eve, much to the fury of fans.

One wrote: ‘Justine let Caleb meet her entire family. Caleb didn’t let Justine meet his family but his new gf has already met his family. Whew. Hell is hot. #loveisland #loveislandusa’.
Another tweeted: ‘The streets are saying Caleb got a side in France but it look like she resides in his sheets. Love in Arizona. Y’all be the judge.’
One fan added: ‘Okay so yesterday, after this picture surfaced (ty peanut for exposing ur fraud brother) Justine announced her & Caleb broke up and she unfollowed him & his mom. Justine was blindsided & did not know about his gf. The gf is not new. He has been with her before LI #LoveIslandUSA’.
As claims that Caleb had been unfaithful over the Christmas period began to heat up, Caleb took to Instagram on Monday to reveal his relationship with Justine actually ended two months ago.
This would mean the couple5’s romance only lasted for about one month after the end of Love Island USA.
In his Instagram stories, Caleb told his followers: ‘As you already know, Justine and I announced to the world that we are no longer together but the truth is we’ve actually not been together for quite some time now.
‘For some of you that may come as a surprise, to others not so shocking but I think for the majority of you, you will be disappointed to learn that you were ever misled and for that, I apologise.’
He continued: ‘In hindsight, we should have made this announcement a long time ago and used these past couple of months to heal and move forward. But as you can imagine, the pressures associated of falling for each other in front of what felt like the whole entire world, felt very heavy on us.
‘Us withholding this information was never something we decided to do with ill intent, we were just waiting on the right time. Hopefully you guys now knowing this will allow us the privacy that we both need, to move forward as individuals.’
The day before, the reality TV star revealed he’d received death threats in the hours after officially announcing his split from Justine.
Pleading for the trolling to stop, he wrote: ‘What a strange feeling it is to wake up to death threats.
‘It is simply impossible to fully capture the complexity of one’s identity or character through a screen. Not through a couple feed posts each week or stories on your phone screen. Not even through an hour a day five days a week for a month on your TV screen.’
Justine was the first to announce the break-up on Sunday and said in a statement that she was still going through the ‘process of heartbreak and healing’ and that the split had been ‘very hard’ for her.
The reality star has been supported by her Love Island USA pals Cely Vazquez and Mackenzie Dipman, who have uplifted her with public messages.
