I have an old 1980s shower, it has a flexible shower wall.

Recently when I pull the tub spout Shower diverter up or push against the wall, I see cracks and holes appear. I tried replacing the bathtub spout multiple times, and retried Caulking Numerous occasions. It keeps showing holes/cracks again. Whats the best solution to this problem? This seems more of a structural/flimsy issue, that caulking may not resolve.

I've had the tub for many years, never seen this problem occur till recently.

Other notes, There is a brick wall behind my shower (in a condo complex). Its an all Metal Spout, and Copper Pipe, I Rotate it to pull the Spout out

** My real concern is regarding mildew/mold which can form later from leaks, causing larger problems.
