Malia White alludes to being “single” in cryptic post

The Below Deck Med bosun is looking forward to enjoying her 30s as a single woman. She might have confirmed that she and Tom Checketts have split in her Instagram post on Sunday, September 20. She shared a selfie of herself holding up a wine glass. In the photo, Malia wore a black silk robe with a black lace chemise. She also rocked a glam look.

“Cheers to all the ladies out there in their 30’s, single, focused on their careers & that give zero f*cks!” Malia captioned her post. She also included the hashtags “#stayfocused,” “#dirtythirty,” “#bossbaes,” and “#thankyounext.” The last hashtag is an interesting choice considering Ariana Grande has a breakup song called “Thank U, Next.”

In addition, Malia wiped all photos of herself and Tom from her Instagram page. The British chef joined Below Deck Mediterranean Season 5. He replaced chef Hindrigo “Kiko” Lorran. Over on her Instagram Stories, Malia wanted fans to know that he cheated on her.


She shared numerous memes and quotes alluding to cheating. She shared a meme that featured Beyonce and Jay-Z that read, “The first time he cheats versus when you had enough.” Malia also shared a Beyonce video with the message, “This is for you buddy.”

The Below Deck Med couple reunited in London

Fans wondered if the couple broke up shortly after they reunited. Both Malia and Tom shared photos of each other last week. The Below Deck Med stars met up in London during Malia’s layover. The duo sure looked happy in the snapshots. Shortly after, they started following each other on Instagram.

“A very brief trip to London with this one,” Tom captioned his post.


In the first photo, Malia tries to kiss Tom’s cheek. The two went sightseeing and bowling during their date. Back in July, Tom confirmed their relationship was still on with a throwback selfie of the two, writing, “Missing the amazing @maliakpwhite so much. It’s tough being apart so it’s lucky that absence makes the heart grow fonder!”

Now, it appears that their love couldn’t survive the distance. But there are whispers that this isn’t their first breakup. There was a previous rumor of a breakup that involved unfollowing each other on Instagram. The couple seemed happy until Tom joined the reality show.

Below Deck Med airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
