LOVE Island star Malin Andersson's violent ex has been freed from prison after just three months for attacking her, The Sun Online can reveal.
Tom Kemp was caged in September after he admitted assault that left her “black and blue” and needing hospital treatment for a broken hand.
Kemp, 28, admitted to occasioning actual bodily harm and was jailed for ten months when he appeared at Aylesbury Crown Court.
The Sun Online can reveal Kemp has been freed three months after he was sentenced and will serve the rest of his term on Home Detention Curfew.
Malin, 28, was branded a "liar with mental health issues" by Kemp after she accused him of physical and mental abuse in shocking Instagram posts.
Malin, who appeared on Love Island in 2016, previously shared harrowing photos last year showing off gruesome bruises on her body after the abuse.
She also shared a picture of bloody nose and tear-stained face as she warned fans about domestic abuse.
Kemp and Malin embarked on an on-off romance in 2018 with the star discovering she was pregnant in May that year.
They briefly split during her pregnancy amid claims Kemp had been unfaithful, but reunited shortly before daughter Consy was born.
Tragically, the baby girl passed away in January aged just four weeks due to complications from being born premature.
The pair split again after struggling with their grief before briefly reuniting.

- Always keep some money on you, including change for a pay phone or bus fare.
- If you suspect your partner is about to attack you, try to go to a lower-risk area of the house – for example, where there is a way out and access to a telephone.

Malin then bravely opened up about the violence after their relationship ended for good but did not name Kemp.
She revealed how the abuse began with “love bombing”, where the victim is showered with gifts and compliments.
But she told how the relationship soured when the thug began to mentally abuse her by fixating on her insecurities – calling her "ugly", "fat" and "worthless".
She said he also used to make comments about her beloved mum Consy, who died from cancer just months before her namesake granddaughter was born.
Opening up about the violence, Malin told The Sun in June: "It started with things being thrown in my face out of anger — food, bottles of water, whatever was in his hand, all out of anger.
"He switched from zero to 100 within seconds. Once they think they can do that to you, it escalates.”
She compared the abuse to being "stuck in a web with a spider" as she was "hit, pushed, kicked, scratched, spoken down to, controlled, manipulated, cheated on, and so much more”.
Malin now wrestles with PTSD, after the abusive relationship left her mental health and self-esteem in tatters.
She said: “You just feel helplessness, hopelessness, sadness, depression, anxiety.
"The emotional abuse stays with you a lot longer than the physical. It takes a long, long time to heal.”
A Prison Service spokesperson said: “Offenders released on Home Detention Curfew are strictly supervised through the use of electronic monitoring and can be returned to prison for breaching their licence conditions.”
