Former Home And Away star Beau Brady breaks his silence on the real reason behind his shock split from former fiancée Bec Hewitt.
Beau Brady laughs out loud when asked if he is jealous of the multimillion-dollar mansions, fast cars and jetset lifestyle his former fiancée Bec Hewitt now enjoys as the wife of tennis star Lleyton.
“I look back at it now and realise proposing to Bec was one of the biggest mistakes I ever made,” he says. “It was just a stupid, young mistake and if I had my time over, I would never, ever have proposed.”
Beau was heartbroken when Bec broke off their engagement to start a relationship with Lleyton, who was developing a friendship with the Home And Away star over the phone while she and Beau were planning their wedding.
Beau’s famous ex has done countless interviews revealing how Lleyton swept her off her feet, proposing after losing the Australian Open final just six weeks after their first dinner date in 2004.
But Beau, 28, has never spoken about the broken engagement – until now. “I’m only speculating, but in the end I’m still not really sure why Bec broke it off – maybe it was because I didn’t own a Ferrari!” he says.
