Betty, who has been working for Scarlett since her 2016 I’m A Celebrity win, is said to have become ‘desperate and panicky’ after losing ‘thousands every week’ from her online gambling habit.
And in ‘sheer desperation’, she allegedly took ‘tens of thousands of pounds’ from Scarlett’s account with the hopes of winning it back.
Yet when Betty reportedly never won the cash back, Scarlett was left ‘horrified’ to discover her account was missing money.
The reality star was said to be ‘betrayed and confused’ but is now supporting her mother and helping her get therapy with the whole family, including Scarlett’s father, Mark, giving Betty the ’emotional and physical support she needs’.

A source told The Sun that it’s been a ‘traumatic few months’, they added: ‘She was losing thousands every week, and became desperate and panicky. In sheer desperation, she took money from Scarlett’s account.
‘But she obviously always thought she would win it back, and be able to repay her. Of course, she never did win the money and the next thing she knew, Scarlett realised her account was missing tens of thousands, and was horrified.’
The source continued: ‘But once Betty broke down and explained what had happened Scarlett couldn’t have been more supportive.’
They added that the whole family has given Betty the ’emotional and physical support she needs.’
A representative for Scarlett declined to comment when approached by MailOnline for comment.
