English translation of sample sentence

"He visto a Carlos con otra chica, o sea, que me está siendo infiel.I saw Carlos with another girl, that is, he is being unfaithful"
Should I take it from "me está siendo infiel" that he is being unfaithful to me personally i.e. the sentence is as would be spoken by his girlfriend and not by some other acquaintance who observes him to be unfaithful to her?

Hola Donogh

Yes, if someone says "me está siendo infiel" that means that a person is being unfaithful to the speaker. That "me" in the sentence is referring to "[unfaithful] to me". It's an indirect object pronoun.

I hope this clarified it.

Saludos
