In a screenshot of Instagram comments that has been shared on Reddit, a fan asked Lucie what she thought of Yewande calling her ‘a horrible person.’ In response, Lucie seemingly wrote:
She’s always bullied me, I’m not bothered about her opinion…makes her look bad. Not sure where she said that though!
After the comments came to light, Yewande tweeted:
Her villa bestie Amber Gill supported her, replying:
Na when she said can I call you “Y” I said lol no you can’t can I just call you “her” you were peaceful in that exchange It was me with the vim.
Amber and Amy support Yewande
Fiercely protective Amber later doubled down on her defence of her friend, writing:
Call me problematic But if I see something false or that I don’t like I’m speaking regardless and if it’s about my friend I’m yelling idc.
And she wasn’t the only one backing up Yewande’s side of the story. Amy Hart also waded in to support Yewande, tweeting:
Lucie Donlan: ‘Those girls are not like me’
Lucie, who is currently dating 2020 Winter Love Islander Luke Mabbott, is yet to respond publicly to the new revelations. However, she previously spoke about not getting on with the other girls in the villa, telling The Sun after she left the show:
Those girls are not like me. They like drama. It was like being in a school playground. I felt really alone and I didn’t know who I could talk to.
