It was alleged Davide had been messaging models on Instagram and Ekin-Su had found out

The whole drama started when Davide was accused of seeing other women, whilst Ekin-Su was away at a beauty event. Ekin-Su was in Belfast at a signing with a beauty brand, and Davide apparently was texting and meeting up with models.

The Sun reported Ekin-Su had been suspicious something was going on between Davide and two other women, and found messages on her phone which left her “fuming and upset”. He is also reported to have met up with the girls in Manchester.

A source said: “It all exploded after she [Ekin-Su] found messages on Davide’s phone discussing their time together. He had been messaging both of the girls and she suspected they had all met up one night. Ekin-Su contacted one of the girls to tell them she knew about things. She was furious and really upset.”

Last week, Ekin-Su and Davide travelled to Amsterdam for what is being called a “make or break holiday”. They were surrounded by split rumours, and fans noticed Ekin-Su didn’t post any photos with Davide, all her photos were alone. Davide however posted a pic of Ekin-Su in their hotel room, to confirm they are still together.

The holiday was reportedly “a bid for Davide to clear the air” and a “desperate attempt to win Ekin-Su over again”. An insider told The Sun: “Ekin has been angry and upset and the pair really needed a change to reconnect.

As all of this was going on, Ekin-Su and Davide posted some out of context messages on both Twitter and Instagram.

One tweet Ekin-Su posted, which was later deleted, seemed to be a dig at other women. It read: “No man will ever take u seriously with just half naked pictures of u in a bikini and lingerie.” She also shared a quote on Instagram reading: “A girl can be just as sexy without showing some skin.”

Davide seemed to use Twitter to deny any of the rumours are true, and hinted instead any “sources” speaking to papers are after money. “People will happily make shit up for £1-2,000 unfortunately man,” he said.

Now apparent texts have been ‘leaked’ of supposed exchanges between Ekin-Su and women who Davide was talking to

This week, The Sun reported Ekin-Su sent a “tirade” of messages in a rant to a model over rumours she slept with Davide. In the messages to Harriet Wilson, which The Sun is claiming to have seen, Ekin-Su is said to have called her a “f***ing s**g” for “sleeping with my boyfriend” and warned her: “You’re finished.”

She apparently also went for a woman called Phoebe Wintle, after finding texts on Davide’s phone. In messages to Harriet, The Sun on Sunday claimed Ekin-Su said: “You f***ing s**g. Sleeping with my boyfriend! Disgusting. Why would you do that?

“You and Phoebe are gonna be shown to everyone s**gs. Pretending nothing happened. Just wait for it. You cow. You’re finished mate.”

According to the publication, Harriet and Ekin-Su know one another, and Harriet used to “keep an eye” on Davide whilst he was on nights out in Manchester, and “report back” to Ekin-Su.
