The Golden Bachelor star Gerry Turner's marriage to Theresa Nist was over long before he filed for divorce on April 12.

A bombshell report claimed the scandal-plagued 72-year-old — who allegedly cooked up a phony résumé as a restauranteur and claimed he'd been loveless since his wife Tori's death in 2017 — cynically clambered aboard the show in hopes of plumping his wallet.

Turner and Nist exchanged vows in a televised ceremony in January.

"His real goal was to set himself up as a Hollywood player and be rich and famous," an insider snitched to The National Enquirer.

"He never had any interest in finding a bride or in the feelings of the women he courted on the show."

ABC's inaugural Golden Bachelor aired a heartwarming finale showing Turner choosing vulnerable widow Nist as his bride — only to see him back out of the marriage days before the wedding before finally going through with things.

"Theresa was warned not to marry Gerry because of his history of lies and fraud," a source revealed. "She really loved him, but she's been played for a fool."

One insider claimed Turner is reveling in his new role as "villain" in the reality TV universe — and that he planned it this way!

"Gerry learned from the whole Vanderpump Rules scandal," the mole spilled. "That's when he set out to ride the same gravy train, and his reps are already pitching him as TV's newest bad boy!"

As this outlet reported, Turner's divorce filing revealed the estranged couple signed an ironclad prenup. Turner filed for divorce after three months of marriage.

According to court documents, Turner cited the relationship's "irretrievable breakdown" as the reason for the split. The reality star additionally confirmed the prenup.

Because the Turner and Nist share no children together, meaning there won't be a custody war to fight, and the prenup firmly in the place, divorce proceedings are expected to be smooth sailing.
