Yvain “Swiss” Badan’s Wife, Cynthia was the one who discovered her husband was cheating on her
Badan’s wife, middle school teacher Cynthia, became curious when she noticed that over a three-week period, Swiss started coming home from the lessons — which started around 8 p.m. — at 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. It seems the coach and student had gotten into a habit of hanging out with two other pals at the club bar until the early hours.
“Cynthia and Swiss were like the local golden couple,” said an insider of the pair, who wed in 2012. “Every waiter and bartender in town knew them and everyone thought, ‘Cynthia and Swiss are always so happy.’” They added, “They were madly in love.”
The pair had been planning for their retirement and had recently bought a vacation home together, and Swiss had just flown to Michigan — where Cynthia had taken a short break with her four sons, between ages 17 and 26 — to surprise her on her birthday.
But Cynthia was devastated on Jan. 8, 2021, to discover text messages that indicated Swiss had left their home to travel to New York to spend the day in bed with Erika. She also discovered from the messages that they were planning a future together.
“They were talking about how they were going to have babies and dogs,” said a source. In March 2021, heartbroken Cynthia filed for divorce. Meanwhile, we’re told Swiss was fired from his job a few days after the affair was discovered.
