Inside Southern Charm’s Naomie Olindo and Metul Shah’s Split: Everything We Know Amid Cheating Scandal
It’s over for Southern Charm alum Naomie Olindo and her boyfriend, Metul Shah. The reality TV couple split weeks after they moved to New York City together, her agent confirmed on Monday, July 12.
“Naomie and Metul are no longer together,” her rep Paul Desisto told People in a statement. “She is back in Charleston [South Carolina] and plans to stay there for the time being.”
The update about their breakup came amidst rumors that Shah allegedly cheated on Olindo, 28. Several Bravo fan Instagram accounts reported the pair parted ways after the anesthesiologist was allegedly unfaithful.
The fan account @BestOfBravo first shared a post about the speculation, claiming, “Naomie just moved to NYC for Metul and then he cheats on her? She obviously broke up with him and now she’s back in Charleston.” In the comments section, the account also claimed to have a source who informed them about the alleged split drama, although Shah has not publicly commented about it.
On the other hand, Olindo broke her silence about the infidelity rumors later that evening, sharing a cryptic message in which she compared the grief of losing her father to the heartbreak she is now coping with.
In May, Olindo announced her plans to relocate to the Big Apple while sharing an update about her “Charleston farewell tour.” Her big life change came on the heels of her exit from the show after season 6 in 2020.
“I’m so thankful for what the show gave me because it does open a lot of doors and there are a lot of advantages,” Olindo said while reflecting about her experience on the “Skinny Confidential” podcast. “Then it comes a time when the good doesn’t outweigh the bad anymore where it’s time to walk away.”
Prior to her relationship with Shah, Olindo previously dated Southern Charm costar Craig Conover for nearly three years. They split in 2017.
In Touch reached out to Olindo and Shah for comment, but did not hear back by the time of publication.
