A source claimed the star no longer has a manager or publicist, and her Twitter and Instagram accounts have not been updated since 2018.
They also told The Mirror: ‘She has nothing going on work-wise right now and hasn’t had anything in quite a while.’
It comes despite Sarah confirming that she was recording her debut album in California hot on the heels of her stint in the CBB house in 2017.
Sarah and Chad briefly dated after romance blossomed during their time on CBB, but split after just three months together.
Speaking about their relation on Celebrity Juice, Sarah said: ‘I didn’t actually go in there looking for anything at all, I didn’t look at him like that at all.’
The couple called it quits in November of 2017 with Sarah citing the long-distance aspect of their relationship as a factor.
She said: ‘It is with sadness that I can now confirm my relationship with Chad is over.
‘The distance has proved too much of an obstacle even though we both tried to make it work.
‘I wish him all the best for the future and thank him for the memories we shared during a very interesting summer.’
