Thought the antics on The White Lotus Season Two were wild? Well sneaky sources recently alleged that the behind-the-scenes antics were even wilder.
Now, Theo James himself has weighed in on the rumours that some spicy relationships formed BTS.
Rolling Stone recently asked the actor: “There are a bunch of fun rumours online that several of the younger White Lotus cast members hooked up during the making of the show. I’m curious exactly how much fun the cast of The White Lotus had in Sicily?”
The actor responded, “[Laughs] Um… We had a great time. We were in Sicily and Rome for six and a half months. The show is about unfettered hedonism, in some ways, so there was a little bit of embracing that.”
He added, “It’s a massive cast, so not every person is going to be kissing and high-fiving each other, but we definitely had a lot of fun. We also tried to remind ourselves that doing a show written by Mike White set in Sicily does not come around very often, so you should enjoy every moment and not take it for granted.”
Hm, strange how he didn’t straight-up shut down the rumours. But then again, perhaps he isn’t aware of just how spicy they are. Just playing devil’s advocate here.
In a recent episode of goss queen Deuxmoi’s podcast Deux/U, she read off an email she was sent with tea about the cast.
Keep in mind this is a gossip podcast, so take it with a grain of salt.
The tea-spiller alleged that Haley Lu Richardson (Portia) hooked up with Adam DiMarco (Albie) and Meghann Fahy (Daphne) had a fling with Leo Woodall (Jack).

When Deuxmoi asked for clarification on whether it’s a known fact or just a rumour, the insider responded: “A part of this is true and the other part is just deduction. Meghann even went on vacation with Leo after filming ended. Haley and Adam are always together.”
Someone else wrote in and said: “Super anon please, but Meghann and Leo 1000 per cent. Tons of witnesses. Not a whole lot of secrecy behind this pairing. Haley Lu and Adam is about 85 per cent [sure that they’re hooking up].”
Another spy who claimed to be mates with someone who works on The White Lotus insisted that it’s all legit.
“Anon please but I’m friends with a cast member of the show and while he was showing me pics and videos of his time in Italy shooting Season Two, we watched a video of Meghann and Leo canoodling in the pool,” they said.
“He explained that they got together in real life and were super cute on set. Not sure if they’re still together or if it was just a fling.”
Deuxmoi sussed to see if the gals were in relationships at the time and it turns out Haley Lu Richardson recently announced she’d ended her two-year engagement. While Meghann Fahy appeared to be married but no longer follows the dude.
After the poddy did the rounds, someone claiming to be the bestie of a makeup artist who worked on the show shared the following alleged tea:
“There were some threesomes between a couple who were there and a girl from production. An actor was bothered by sex noises and moved out to an Airbnb in March. Michael Imperioli and his wife were eccentric. Sabrina (who plays Valentina) is the most loving and cheerful person she has ever met. At some dinners it was forbidden to bring your partners. Theo James is very fun and caring, she said he’s one of the few actors she hasn’t seen cheat on his wife. Simona and Adam also slept together.”
Do bear in mind that these are unverified sources and none of the parties involved have confirmed or denied any of this.
We’ve got more spicy The White Lotus tea for ya — although not quite as horny — involving where Season Three will be set and which characters are returning.
Spoilers ahead, obvs.
