LOVE Island’s Yewande Biala has hit back at claims she bullied Lucie Donlan in the 2019 series.
The Irish reality TV star, 26, took to Twitter yesterday in light of Lucie‘s unearthed Instagram comments on Reddit.
Dubliner Yewande penned: “You refused to call me by my name because it was too ‘hard to pronounce’ now you wanna say I bullied you !! Bullied”.
In light of her post, Amber Gill, who appeared on the same series as the pair and won with Greg O’Shea, came to Yewande’s defence.
The 2019 Love Island winner replied: “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.”
Yesterday, HOAR Online reported on the Love Island stars’ secret feud.
Although the pair were never seen clashing on the ITV2 show back in 2019, Lucie has accused Yewande of “bullying her” in unearthed tweets.
A fan asked: “How do you feel about Yewande saying you’re a horrible person?”
Lucie replied: “She’s always bullied me. I’m not bothered about her opinion… makes her look bad. Not sure where she said that though!”
Yewande – who formed a close bond with Anna and eventual winner Amber Gill – was sent home when Anton Danyluk chose Lucie over her.
It appears the girls weren’t able to move on from the rift.
A year after leaving the villa, Yewande’s close friend Anna Vakili told Heat: “She [Lucie] unfollowed me, Yewande and Amy, and then a few weeks later she unfollowed Amber.
“It was like ‘babe, I didn’t know you had a problem’.”
Yewande also fell out with Molly-Mae Hague from the same series.
Anna revealed Molly had snubbed Yewande from the guestlist for her PrettyLittleThing launch party – despite inviting Anna’s sister Mandi.
Molly-Mae also had run ins with Lucie who tried it on with her partner Tommy Fury in the villa.
She realised she had feelings for the boxer – and Molly-Mae was forced to fight for her man.
