She was rumored to be once again stepping outside her spiritual marriage to Kody Brown with a man she met in Hawaii, but Sister Wives star Meri Brown's reported romance has come to an unexpected halt following a revelation from the man she reportedly fell in love with that he was gay.

According to The Hollywood Gossip, Meri, who was caught up in a humiliating Catfish scandal last year when she sought romance with a new man online after she and Kody legally divorced so he could marry Robyn, was feeling neglected at home by Kody since he allegedly only paid attention to Robyn and was only intimate with her-and her loneliness made her seek out the new relationship, only for her to be once again devastated when what she saw as a purported ticket out of the polygamous relationship she is in was once again snatched away.

"While they were filming the big family trip to Hawaii Meri went off to do her own thing and met this man," a source told the website. "She fell fast and hard for this guy. He was nice and it was easy because she really craves attention since she's not getting it back home, but turns out he's gay!"

Meri was even planning on a future with him, and was ready to leave the family behind to do so when she learned the news.

"She was traveling back and forth from Vegas to see him and saving her money to move out of Vegas to be with him," the source claimed.

If the reports are true-either of the man's sexual orientation or Meri's plans to be with him-it will be the second time the sister wife, Kody's first, would be humiliated in her attempts to leave the lifestyle behind. She had similarly planned a future with "Sam," a man she met online last year, before realizing he was actually a woman named Jackie who was Catfishing her. That saga, which went public, has since been played out on the family's show.

If this story winds up also being true, it is unclear if it will be also used on the show if it is renewed for future seasons on TLC.

Sister Wives airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on TLC.
