Tiny detail in TikTok photo reveals boyfriend's cheating

A woman has revealed the moment her boyfriend of four years inadvertently revealed his cheating ways via a seemingly-innocent selfie.

TikTok user Sydney Kinsch got off to a flying start on the video platform yesterday with her very first video detailing the jaw-dropping experience racking up a whopping 1.4 million views in 24 hours.

The video shows Sydney superimposed over a selfie of her ex-boyfriend wearing a pair of sunglasses reflecting the care he is sitting in.

Sydney is at first covering half the photo, eventually moving to the left to reveal the reflection of what appears to be a blonde-headed woman snapping a selfie in the passenger seat of the car can be seen.

“Check the reflection in your boyfriend's sunnies ladies,” she captioned the surprising video.

The furious former lover elaborated on the tale in the comments, explaining her denied the cheating at first, only to eventually be outed as having five ladies on the side.

“I called him and asked if he realised he sent me a b**** in his Snapchat and he had no idea,” she wrote in response to a viewer’s query.

“So I sent it to him and he called me crazy and that it was our friends gf and that's he's allowed to have friends.”

“He was with "like 5 people",” she continued. “I found out a week later ALL the details.”

Shocked onlookers flood the comments

Shocked viewers flooded the comments with their reactions, many shaking their heads over the appalling behaviour, and idiotic oversight.

“What’s done in the dark comes out in the reflection of your sunglasses, always,” one lady wrote.

“Guys always thinking they can pull a fast one on us,” another commiserated.


A few others revealed that the experience was far from an outlier, revealing they too had buste3d unfaithful lovers via reflective photos.

“How I caught my ex too,” one wrote. “Reflection in a window.”

“This legit happened to me,” another shared. “My ex took a selfie to send me and I saw the chic in his glasses reflection lol. He was at a restaurant.”

The jaw-dropping tale isn’t the first time photo has played a pivotal part in a dramatic tale of infidelity.

Earlier this year a furious ex-wife got revenge on her cheating husband by posting flyers of their family photo around his new town.

The flyers had an image of a happy family posing together, with a scathing message beneath it.

“Abandoned his wife and kids in New York to come to [the town] to sc** MILFs (and for crappy [government] job!),” the flyer read.

“Some neighbour you have! He’s still married and living with another woman.”

The flyer even called on the police to cite the man for an adultery misdemeanour, which is technically illegal in 21 states in the US.
