The 26-year-old former ‘Love Island’ star – who shares son Santiago, seven months, with Sammy – was horrified after Sammy was sentenced to three and a half years of jail on Wednesday (14.07.21), after scamming two pensioners – Peter Martin, 91, and Peter Haynes, 82 – out of over £33,000 in savings.
A source told MailOnline: “She is absolutely floored by what’s happened with Sammy. She knows she has to make massive changes in her life and she’s so distraught…
“All she knows is that her baby boy Santiago is the only thing that matters now and she is trying to work out how best to look after him as a single parent.”
Insiders have claimed that Sammy, 25, lied to Dani about the severity of his actions and she was completely shocked by the sentence this week.
The source added: “She needs time to think it through. Sammy completely downplayed the court case every step of the way.
“He led her to believe he hadn’t done anything too serious and that he would get a suspended sentence now she knows the full horror of the crime.
“She is broken. She feels desperately sorry for the two men he scammed and whose lives he ruined.
“She feels utterly stupid for ever believing him and she is totally overwhelmed…
“The little dream family she thought she had has been smashed apart and she is now trying to work out how best to pick up the pieces.”
In court this week, Kimmence wept in court as judge Tim Mousley QC said of his victims: “Neither of them was a wealthy man and each of them relied on a state pension and a small annuity, and you persuaded them you could provide sound investment advice for them. What you were actually doing was stealing their money.
“You essentially treated the bank accounts and credit services of these two gentlemen as if they were your own.”
