A Pennsylvania man uploaded a video (below) on his YouTube page on Nov. 14 in which he asserts that his wife is cheating. The video, filmed by a drone, has gone viral with more than 7 million views.
John Consiglio filmed a woman, whom he identified as his wife, meeting a man driving a black car behind a CVS store not far from Consiglio's home, notes Mediaite.com.
The video shows the woman standing at an intersection waiting for the light to change while Consiglio adds his bitter commentary: "Here she is taking her hair out, gotta make yourself look pretty! Better make yourself look pretty for the guy you're about to cheat on your husband with, right?"
The video shows the woman walking into the CVS parking lot, where she is soon met by a black car.
Consiglio describes the play-by-play action in a rage:
There he is! There's the guy, there's the [expletive] that my wife is cheating on me with! My wife of 18 years! If you watch carefully, you’re going to be able to see 18 years go right down the f***ing drain. Watch! If you're not paying attention you might miss it! Here it comes! There it goes! Boom! Eighteen years gone! Eighteen f***ing years, gone! Eighteen years, you just throw it away like that! We had a good marriage. I thought we had a good marriage. Apparently not. Eighteen years! F*** you!
In an update video (below), Consiglio thanked all his online supporters, said that he had been tipped off about his wife by a mutual friend and said he originally tried to follow his wife on foot, but she caught him.
Consiglio said his wife was upset he posted the video online, admitted it was a "d*** move" to air their dirty laundry and said his wife told him she had not slept with the man.
Consiglio admitted to the Daily Mail he initially wanted to kill his wife's alleged lover:
That day I didn't want to know the details. But I was angry at him for some reason. I know he's not the main person to blame in this situation, but I thought at that point I was going to kill him. He was the one who had ruined my life and I was going to kill him. I let myself cool down for a couple of days and I didn't even show her for two days. And after that initial anger, I was devastated. Now that's moved into a real state of emptiness and a worry for my children.
Consiglio said that he was filing for divorce, and discussed the state of his relationship:
The relationship is over. She knows how I feel about cheating and we've had good conversations in the past about relationships. It can't recover from this. Even if I forgave her, and I probably could, every time she was late to something or going somewhere there would always be something in the back of my mind nagging at me. I love my children, and I love my wife too, but you can't have a relationship built on something like that.
Consiglio also pushed back on claims that the video is fake:
Lots of people have been saying it's fake, and I can understand that, because I'd think it was fake too with the way the internet is these days, but it's definitely legitimate. Plenty of people have been blaming me, which is always nice. Some are saying, "Well you must not have been giving her what she needs," which is always fun to read and some are less subtle and just called me a fat a**. I am getting a bit of revenue off the video on my channel, which helps because money is tight, but I want to donate a chunk of that to charity.
Daily Mail published the name of Consiglio's wife, but that has not been confirmed by her, nor has the alleged cheating.
