It's been just over a month since Tara Pavlovic and Sam Cochrane split after getting engaged on Bachelor in Paradise.

But now, we finally have some insight into exactly what led to trouble in paradise. (Pun intended).

Speaking to Daily Mail, Tara admitted that Sam initiated the break-up after the pair had an argument, adding that the relationship was "toxic".

"Sam left me after a fight thinking I would beg for him back – he always threatened to leave and play games," the 27-year-old said.

"The relationship was just the most toxic thing. I feel the biggest sense of relief now that it's all over. I finally feel like I'm myself again," she added.

Tara also spoke about how Sam often claimed the two were incompatible, saying that he was "too smart" for Tara.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Jewel denied the allegation but said she did visit the venue several times.

"I can't remember the details but I may have taken some clothes off [while] drunk... I was 19," she said.

Jewel said she first went to the Doll House by invitation of her ex-boyfriend, billionaire 53-year-old Malcolm Day.

"He asked me to be a skimpy at his friend Pedro's bucks party and I said no but I did go to the party and things did get a little wild," she said.

"I used to go to parties with him and skimpies were always there."

However, Day told the publication Jewel had competed in Miss Nude WA and was a regular stripper at the club.

"Miss Nude? I wish!" Jewel responded to the claim.

Kim Kardashian has spoken about her meeting with US President Donald Trump on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, sharing some pretty interesting details in the process.

Kim met with Trump in May to discuss prison reform. She championed the pardoning of grandmother Alice Marie Johnson, who was serving a life sentence for a drug offence.

Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel, Kim spoke of the… awkward… position she found herself in when Trump called a week after their meeting to tell her he had commuted Johnson’s sentence.

“I was at a Steven Klein photo shoot, and if anyone knows who he is, it's pretty much a nude shoot. So I'm naked, and my phone rings, and I'm all glammed up, and I'm like, 'Get me a robe!',” she said. “And then I had to call Alice from the shoot. Nude."”

Ever the professional, Kim took the call, informed Johnson and then got right back to werk.

“I was kind of bugging out during the shoot because I’m like, 'Oh my God, all these amazing things are happening,' and I'm still gonna be me. We were doing the shoot, and I was like, 'What do we do? Do I do this nude shoot? Don't I do this nude shoot?' I did it."

4. Ivanka Trump's former Hollywood boyfriend has outed their secret relationship.

Ivanka Trump has a secret Hollywood ex-boyfriend.

The daughter of US President Donald Trump once dated actor Topher Grace (Eric Forman on That 70s Show) but he's not too keen to talk about it (and we don't blame him).

Speaking to Daily Beast the 40-year-old actor revealed he went on "a couple of dates" with Ivanka back in 2006.

"Certainly it wasn't a political statement," he said.

"This was a decade ago. I met her here in New York and we went on a couple of dates. I wouldn't say we 'dated', but... I didn't do it for political reasons."

Grace, who clearly doesn't want to appear to support President Trump politically, also said he never met Ivanka's father during their brief fling.

"It's a daily deluge," he said of Trump's presidency.

The pair were papped at Ivanka's 25th birthday in Las Vegas, when Grace was 28 years old.

5. Grant Kemp thinks Australia didn't see the real Ali Oetjen. Oh, please.

Ali Oetjen has moved on and is currently filming The Bachelorette, but alas, it seems Grant Kemp is still bitter about his ex-girlfriend.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Kemp made some wholly unnecessary comments about how Ali was supposedly edited by producers on Bachelor in Paradise

To recap, Grant and Ali finished the show by declaring their love for one another, but just minutes later we learned they had broken up. Soon after, Grant claimed they broke up because Ali had cheated on him while visiting him in Los Angeles in March.

Grant claimed to the Daily Mail that Ali's "sweetheart" image was all down to the producers.

"If you look at how they edited Ali on Bachelor In Paradise, you could tell by the editing that they had a plan B if we broke up, because they made her out to be this sweetheart...a wholesome girl, that all the guys want."
