I am sorry but unless it is untrue they are allowed to do that.
Nobody owes you confidentiality however much it may be bad form.

The fact of spending just means it won't be disclosed on DBS checks. it doesn't debar individuals from discussing it or, in fact, the press from reporting it.

I am sorry.

Can I clarify anything for you?
