Amanda Owen's romance with new lover Robert Davies allegedly began five years ago, according to Robert's now-estranged wife, who has now broken her silence on the pair's relationship.
Our Yorkshire Farm star Amanda, 48, split from her husband Clive Owen, 68, last year and it was recently reported that she's now moved on with web designer Robert, 71, who she first met five years ago when he was hired by the Owen family to help take their business online.
Robert's wife Yasumi has now spoken out about Amanda and Robert's romance, claiming they've been having a "five-year fling" which she discovered last year after finding a note, key chain and necklace at her home.
Yasumi told The Sun she found a note, allegedly handwritten by mum-of-nine Amanda, last March.
The scribbled message read: “Robert, life is too short & happiness is too rare. I love you.”
OK! has contacted representatives for Amanda Owen.
Yasumi, who is an investment banker from Tokyo, said she recognised the handwriting to be Amanda's after noticing it was the same as the writing in a signed copy of the shepherdess' new book.
She then found some jewellery allegedly belonging to Amanda in a box in hers and Robert's bedroom, which included a necklace Amanda had previously worn on TV. The necklace read: "Together forever".
Yasumi then discovered a keychain, with the words: "Unbridled love. R & A" engraved on it.
The investment banker, who wed Robert on Christmas Day in 2011 after a whirlwind romance, eventually confronted her husband and he instantly confessed to betraying her with Amanda.
Recalling what happened, Yasumi told The Sun: “He rang Amanda in front of me and told her I knew about their affair and that it was over.
“He said they’d been having an affair for a few years. But instead of acknowledging the pain I was suffering, he was more concerned about protecting her TV career."
She also claimed Amanda "didn't care" how she felt and didn't show "any compassion".
Yasumi said she first noticed a sudden change in Robert's behaviour back in 2018, when he began working with the Owen family on their farming website.
She noticed her husband "didn't look happy anymore" and knew "something was wrong" but added that she regrets not discussing this with Robert at the time.
