WHEN Bridgette Davis lost her husband, she also had to share the news with his mistress – who then made a shocking request.
Davis was married to a man who had been battling bipolar disorder. He lost his battle with depression in 2018.

But prior to his death, he had engaged in an affair with another woman.
As she mourned her husband, Davis realized his mistress would want to know the news.
Davis reached out to the other woman via Instagram direct message, but wasn’t prepared for the request she’d receive.
“F***. I can’t believe this,” the mistress responded to the news.
“I can’t, I’m losing it. I can’t do this again. He promised me,” she continued.
“Can I go to where he was buried?” the woman asked.
Davis responded: “No.”
She shared the exchange in a now-viral TikTok video that has amassed more than 1.9million views since being posted just days ago.
“There is a lot to unpack here,” the caption reads.
Davis prefaces the snapshot of the direct message exchange with the mistress with on-screen text that says: “When your husband of 10 years dies and you have to tell his mistress.” The song Crazy by Patsy Cline plays in the background.
In the days following her initial TikTok video, Davis has posted several follow ups explaining more of the circumstances surrounding her husband’s death and his relationship with the mistress.
One video in particular features a screenshot of Davis asking the other woman if she knew of the marriage and the children Davis and her husband shared.
“I know a lot about things,” the mistress wrote.
“He needed support, [he] told me him and I were peas in a pod,’ she said.
Davis then responded: ‘We have been together 16… I know nothing about you. Other than he said you weren’t his girlfriend and he broke things off with you.”
In other TikTok videos Davis posted, she shares how she discovered the affair – by her husband telling her he had met someone through a dating site.
Despite her traumatic ordeal, Davis refuses to name the other woman.
“I don’t wanna cause any further trauma in her life,” Davis told the Daily Mail.
