The Chainsmokers' star Alex Pall's girlfriend caught him cheating thanks to security camera footage
Cheating is certainly one of the worst things you can do to someone. Being an extreme breach of trust, infidelity can quash once happy relationships, putting years of love, memories, and effort to waste. And in the majority of instances, it's not something that you can forgive either.
I mean, there's not really a "good" excuse for locking lips, or more, with someone other than your significant other (no matter how many tequila shots you consumed prior to the fact). Seriously, it's all about self-control, and if you're having to actually try to restrain yourself from getting it on with anything that moves, it may be time to re-evaluate your relationship.
And this era of modern technology has made the lives of cheaters even more difficult. Case in point: The Grammy Award winning DJ who is one half of the EDM duo The Chainsmokers, Alex Pall, got caught cheating by his girlfriend of three years, Tori Woodward, thanks to a security camera.
Woodward took to her Instagram stories to show images of Pall allegedly kissing another girl. The photographs were captured on a residential building's CCTV cameras - and yes, it's very reminiscent of that Black Mirror episode.
"Alex is disgusting. Men are trash. Don’t ever forget it," Woodward captioned the first of her Instagram stories. "They’ll look you in the eyes and tell you they love you. Then destroy you without a second thought"
A few hours later, Tori updated her followers about what had ensued since her first post. She wrote:
"After hours of begging him for scraps of honesty I chipped away just enough to confirm that this is not the first time he's remorsely cheated on me. That "psycho bitch" from Vegas, the "lame Instagram model" caught on video and countless others he looked me in the eyes and swore on his life he never touched. Consistent outright denial faded to him explaining that because all men do it, it's not that bad, and in different words, that because he's famous now he has a different rulebook for decency".
Tori then went on to claim, "What's perhaps most amazing is that he HASN'T EVEN APOLOGIZED."
In an ensuing post, Tori said that Alex has "done everything he possibly can to stop this from coming out". She also stated, "if there was ever a time to hold powerful men accountable for their disgusting behaviour it’s now," insinuating that Alex had attempted to stop her from going public with his infidelity.
"Don't be that guy, don't let your friend or brother or business partner be that guy. Basic respect for women in your life should not be such a hard standard to hold each other to," she continued.
Well, it's certainly precarious times for those who choose to skip out on their partners - and for good reason too. Proceed with caution, folks.
