'Britain's Got Talent' runner-up Jonathan Antoine has revealed he cut himself after he was dumped by a girlfriend whose own self-harm he had kept hidden from his mother
'Britain's Got Talent' star Jonathan Antoine revealed he cut his stomach after he was dumped by a girlfriend who self-harmed.
The 18-year-old singer - who was a runner-up on the TV talent show last year alongside Charlotte Jaconelli - has confessed he tried to hide his former flame's habit from his mother before their break-up drove him to do the same.
He told the Sunday People newspaper: "She was all I thought about. She moved to another school and then later moved out of the area. I got a phone call from her saying we were over.
"That was it. She hated me. It all ended in a phone call. I lost it. I told mum and then went upstairs. I removed a blade from a sharpener and cut up my torso ... My mum walked in and just went into a meltdown."
The revelation has even come as a shock to his singing partner Charlotte, 18, who admitted she never knew the extent of his pain.
She said: "I knew he'd gone through something bad but we've never spoken about it."
