Things are getting increasingly bitter between former Bachelor in Paradise couple Sam Cochrane and Tara Pavlovic, with a report claiming Sam has gone into hiding over the drama.

The 34-year-old made some explosive claims about his former fiancée earlier this week, saying she was an alcoholic who was physically “abusive” throughout their engagement in an interview with Woman’s Day.

Tara quickly denied the allegations, but admitted to biting him during a blazing row “when he told me he cheated on me”.

Now a report has emerged claiming the voice over artist has become “uncontactable” as the split storm around them continues, according to New Idea. 

“Sam has gone away and I can’t even reach him right now,” a friend told the magazine.

The unnamed pal went on to add they were “furious” Tara — who is currently in Sweden with a friend — hasn’t been been arrested after admitting she hot physical with her ex.

“Something like this has highlighted domestic violence for men and I’m furious Tara hasn’t been arrested after admitting to the assault,” they said.

Just days earlier, Tara spoke out about Sam’s allegations that she “hit” him, on on Instagram, revealing things did get physical between them at one point.

“When he told me he cheated on me, I hit him and cried and told him to get out of my hotel,” she said.

“I was in an emotional abusive relationship with a narcissist.”

The pair initially insisted their breakup was amicable, with both sharing lovely messages on their social media accounts about how much they “loved” one another.

But since then, the gloves have most definitely come off.
