The Only Way Is Essex Jess Wright had been recorded telling ex-boyfriend, Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni Pernice, he’s “full of s**t” following their split earlier this year in April.
Mark Wright’s sister and the Italian professional dancer came face-to-face at the Pride of Britain Awards last Monday, as Jess was seen engaged in a furious row with Giovanni.
The 28 year old addressed the situation for the first time as he took to Twitter to “like” a fan tweet reading: “Name me one woman other than Jess or Georgia he’s officially been with. He doesn’t go through women. He actually seems like a genuine guy.”
In video obtained by Mirror Online, the couple, who dated for six months, are seen exchanging words, with Jess telling Giovanni: “You broke my heart. You lied to me.”
She continued: “You’re talking s**t.”
The reality TV star continued by accusing Giovanni, who is currently partnered up with Faye Tozer on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, of using her to raise his profile.
“You used me, you used me, publicity, fame,” Jess told Giovanni, in the video seen by OK! online.
The pair are then seen taking a seat before arguing more.
The pair split earlier this year, with reports suggesting that the dancer “struggled with Jess’ popularity”, leaving her devastated.
A source told The Sun: “He was really into Jess and did want to make a go of it, but he struggled with the attention she gets and her popularity.
“They’ve tried to keep things amicable and told people they have both agreed to go their separate ways, but he was the one who first suggested things were going to end. She has been really upset by this. It’s a real shame but hopefully things will stay civil.”
Earlier this week reports emerged claiming Giovanni has been getting close to his Strictly co-star Ashley Roberts, with the pair reportedly enjoying “secret dates” after “kissing”.
