When a woman revealed she had been charging her boyfriend to stay in the building she secretly owned, netizens were divided by her confession, with people both applauding and condemning her actions.
This month, a TikToker created quite a stir online when she confessed to keeping a big secret from her boyfriend, whom she had been living with for a year.
TikToker Jayne (@jaynedoee0) shared that her partner takes care of the rent and various other "major bills." However, despite this, she chose to keep him in the dark about her own financial situation.

SHE OWNS THE BUILDING
The woman claimed she was actually her boyfriend's landlord. According to her, he had been paying rent directly to her every month because she is the owner of the building they reside in.
This effectively meant that Jayne had been bagging the rent money since they moved in. From the looks of her video, she wonders how he would react when he finds out.

VIEWERS WERE STUNNED
Captioned: “Do y’all think he’ll be mad once he finds out?” the brief video also had a text overlay that detailed Jayne owned the building for 5 years already. Viewers were stunned, and many called her out.
In a follow-up video, the TikToker surprisingly seemed upset that her boyfriend found out about her viral confession.
