A male model who dumped his elderly husband days after being given his flat says he already has a wealthy new boyfriend.

Florin Marin, 24, married retired Rev Philip Clements, 79, in April but dumped him after being given ownership of their €100,000 flat in Bucharest.

Mr Clements confessed he “lost everything” in the marriage and is now destitute, relying on friends for a roof over his head.

The toyboy lover has now broken his silence to reveal he has is now dating wealthy dad-of-one Jeronimo Jesus de Vega, 48.

He has even boasted of late-night partying and splashing his cash with the new businessman boyfriend.

Florin admitted he “likes the money” de Vega can provide, boasting: “He is more wealthy than Philip”.

Speaking to local media in Romania, he said: “Philip knows, I told him I found someone. He said that he would not want to keep in touch with me.”

He explained: “He has some business, he is more wealthy than Philip.

“He knows very well that I like the money. I told him all about my husband.”

Florin said he was “pleasantly surprised” when he first came across de Vega on Facebook.

De Vega asked to pay for plane tickets to meet face-to-face and waited at the airport with white roses”.

“After that, we went to a gay club in Alicante, drank and went to his house and slept together”.

Mr Clements, now back in Kent, is believed to be devastated by the news, which he says Florin had not told him.

He told MailOnline he felt “foolish” for losing everything to the 24-year-old.

The retired has been left heartbroken and homeless since the marriage ended.

Rev Clements sold his home in Kent to buy an apartment with his new husband in Bucharest, Romania, as they started a new life together.

But the pensioner was left stunned when the relationship broke down right after he signed the city centre apartment over to his husband.

The pair are said to have had a blazing argument over his husband’s constant clubbing.

Florin was regularly spending nights away from the marital home partying with friends, which the reverend was unable to join due to struggling with walking long distances.

Mr Clements has now returned to the UK almost penniless and is relying on friends for somewhere to stay.

He told The Sun: “We used to go out to the cinema and shopping. He makes me laugh. We’d laugh a lot.

“I came over to England for some medical appointments for a fortnight in late August. When I returned, we had a disagreement.”

Mr Clements added: “I was very lonely, not knowing the language or having any friends.

“Florin would spend a lot of time going out. He used to go to bed very late, sometimes 5am in the morning having been out nightclubbing or watching films.

“He said I wasn’t allowed to go clubbing. It wasn’t for old people. In my heart I didn’t accept it but I trusted him.”

Mr Clements returned to Britain in September, after less than five months of marriage.

He says he handed over the flat to Florin to give him “security when I die”.
