Bethany Austin learned her fiance had been unfaithful in late May 2016.

Matthew Rychlik, with whom Austin had been sharing a home for seven years, was having an affair with a neighbor. The relationship was unsalvageable, according to court documents; they even argued over how to call off the wedding — Rychlik wanted to tell family and friends that it was a mutual decision; Austin wanted to tell them the truth, that Rychlik was cheating on her.

But the situation escalated, and Rychlik told the world in his own way, from his own point of view. According to court documents, he spread rumors about his “crazy” fiancee and announced that he was “sleeping at another girl’s house” because Austin “never cooks or does house chores,” NPR reported.

Then, Austin admits, she sent friends and family a four-page letter that contained text messages between Rychlik and the neighbor, Elizabeth Dreher, including nude photos of Dreher.
