She also said her sister helped her perform a fake funeral service in which they took pictures to make it look realistic.
The ex-girlfriend believed her and Thea said: “It’s been three years and she still thinks he’s dead.”
Thea explained that the ex-girlfriend posts about him on social media, saying: “She posts little tributes every year on her Facebook page to the love of her life and how she’s so sorry that she couldn’t be there when he died to save him.”
The woman made the astonishing admission on TikTok
The TikTok has been viewed more than 5.3million times and liked by more than 1.1million times, however, the reaction to the questionable “prank” has been mixed.
While some praised her for getting a bizarre kind of revenge, others questioned exactly how the ex hadn’t realised after three years.
One person wrote: “Not one person that knows both him and her told her that he was in fact not dead??”
Another said: “IMAGINE SHE MARRIED ANOTHER MAN AND FINDS OUT HE'S ALIVE AND NOW SHE'S CONFLICTED AND HER RELATIONSHIP IS OVER.”
