Jerry Sykes is NOT a feeder

Our source tells us that Jerry Sykes — like Phillip — has an interest in BBW women. But, he is NOT a feeder despite the show portraying him as such. Jerry Sykes did bring Tammy Slaton food that she was not supposed to have per her diet. He, however, was not feeding or enabling her. We have multiple sources that have told us Tammy Slaton becomes aggressive and violent when she does not get her way.

This source tells us that Jerry only brought Tammy food she wasn’t allowed to have after she pressured him into doing so. Tammy’s sister Amy Halterman has admitted to doing the same during this season of the series. Speaking on the phone to Chris Combs, Amy Halterman explains it is just easier to give Tammy the food she wants than to deal with the fit she throws when she doesn’t get her way.

1000-Lb. Sisters Exclusive: He regrets going on this show

Tammy Slaton allegedly tricks men into going on the show with her and being her boyfriend because she’s lonely. Our source claims she’s extremely jealous of Amy Halterman’s marriage to Michael. Her jealously only grew more intense when Amy had her son Gage. Gage divided Amy’s attention and made it to where she couldn’t care for her and be there for her as much. Tammy Slaton wasn’t happy about that.

Tammy is a liar she lied on Phillip repeatedly the same way she lied on Jerry she wanted Jerry to leave his family for her because she knows her family is tired of taking care of her NOW fast forward to the day Tammy is still on a wrath of destruction Jerry is embarrassed and totally regrets knowing this woman and doing that damn show that she tricked him into doing she gets these men on this show just to bash them without thinking of the aftermath that will be for them like threats and non stop harassment and her family is sad because before all this sh*t happen they were nice to Jerry now he this monster for ratings on that trashy ass show.”

Tammy Slaton continues to harass Jerry

We asked our source if Tammy Slaton still has contact with Jerry. More specifically, we wanted to know if the harassment continued after Tammy “got with” Phillip.

Yes she 100% was still harassing Jerry when she moved on to Phillip she would call him and hang up and Jerry knew it was her he even would answer and say ‘Tammy I know this is you’ he had to get his number changed.”

Jerry Sykes did file a police report against Tammy Slaton after she set his things on fire on television. Our source notes Tammy only agreed to set his things on fire after he refused to return for Season 3.

Our source continued: “it was determined that Philip did not agree do the show because Tammy knew he was engaged when she find out she started begging Jerry to come back on the show because really Tammy pays these men to do the show because she is jealous of Amy and her marriage begin shown on the show and how it portrays her as this lonely overweight woman this is why Tammy seeks men and women online.”

Rating is what it going for.All the wrong reason,They new about the Duggers and what was going on but they still gave them a sho, how could u?these were baby he did this to. Now u want to make Jerry on 1000 pounds sis look bad was it because he was BLACK! Something u lack on this channel shame, shame ,

    1. You have ZERO reason to say they wanted to make him look bad because he was black. Quit with the race card, it’s been DECLINED because it’s long since expired.

      He made himself look bad by slurping all over that disgusting blob of fat.

  2. I think Tammy is a big liar I think she lies about the boyfriends and the girlfriends she says she’s had I think she just wants to make herself look like somebody wants her and there is somebody out here for everybody don’t get me wrong but Tammy is rude and unappreciative to anybody that’s trying to help her everything Tammy is doing is for the ratings for the show I don’t believe any of it anymore…Army need to move away for Tammy and she needs to be put in a assistant living.
