M Clements, originally from Eastry in Kent, moved to Romania to be with his toyboy lover after the couple got married in 2017.

When the vicar – 55 years older than Marin – died, it sparked a bitter and public quarrel between Mr. Clement’s family and the model over the fortune, with the model banning his late husband’s family from the funeral.

Speaking from a Spanish villa, Marin told The Sun that he has switched to an even richer man in the form of Mr. de Vaga, a father of one.

“For the holidays, my Spanish husband Jeronimo Jesus de Vega pays,” he told the newspaper. “I don’t spend my money on vacations—my lovers pay for them.”

He added that he still had Mr Phillips’ money “because I’m not stupid to spend my husband’s money on small things. I’ll just put the money there in a savings bank.’

He said that ever since he inherited his late husband’s money, he has been haunted by hopeful suitors who hoped to get a share of the fortune.

But despite the advances made through social media in which some people have made big promises for a lifelong romance, Marin said he is rejecting them.

Mr Marin and Mr de Vaga have dated before, having met while Mr Clements and the male model were on hiatus, according to The Sun.

After just five months of marriage, the two broke up over arguments over Mr. Marin’s nightclubbing.

While Mr Clements was returning to the UK and living with a friend, Mr Marin had reportedly entered into a new relationship with Mr de Vaga.

However, the couple rekindled their relationship when the pastor moved to Romania so they could be together.

Mr Marin told the newspaper that he expected to remarry but that he would not rush anything as he said he had only been dating Mr De Vaga for a few months.

“Of course I think about Philip every day because he was my husband and still looks at me from the clouds,” he added.

Mr. Clements had served as a priest in the Anglican Church, but he retired before marrying Mr. Marin.

Mr Clements fell ill during the coronavirus lockdown after running low on medication and initially refused to go to hospital (pictured left at home not long before he died), but was eventually taken there by Florin (pictured in right ward ) where he was admitted isolation before death

Brother Anthony said earlier this year, “I’ve told my brother this many times. Florin is nothing but a prospector who wanted to rob my brother from the moment they met. And now he has what he wanted.

‘The man is a disgrace. I have often made my feelings clear. What happened speaks for itself. Florin has cashed in and has done very well from my brother.’

The retired postman added: ‘The whole family feels the same way. I’ve also talked to my other brother Brian about it and he’s also not happy with the way Florin took advantage of Phillip.

“We were supposed to inherit Philip’s estate, but now it’s all gone to Florin. But it’s not about the money, because I’d rather have my brother alive. What makes us angry is the way his husband treated him.”

He claims the couple “were always fighting and broke up. On one occasion, about four years ago, I went to comfort Philip because he was in pieces. I supported him in that, but I also told him that Florin was not good for him.’

He described his late brother as ‘a very intelligent man, but not very street wise and it was easy to pull the wool over his eyes and take advantage of him. I could see what was going on, but unfortunately he couldn’t.’

In an exclusive interview with MailOnline following Mr Clements’s death, Mr Marin said: ‘People will think I’m a black hat widow who cries, and I’ve cried, but two days is enough.

“Philip didn’t want me to cry, he wanted people to be happy no matter what.

“I don’t want to show people my feelings because my husband passed away, because some people take advantage of that and there are people who are happy because of your grief,” he added.
