Chris Clark Reveals The Real Reason Behind His Split With Ex Jesy Nelson
As he opens up about the dark side of internet trolling.
In the face of rumours he "used" Jesy to boost his fame, the TOWIE star opened up to OK! Magazine about how the pair initially clicked: “‘[We met] on Instagram. That seems to be the way to meet girls nowadays!
"She liked one of my pictures and I thought, it can’t be that Jesy, surely not, but it was. And it went from there really. Our relationship came at a difficult time, though, because the band were touring America, so we mostly spoke on the phone."
Revealing that the real reason behind their split was down to his own feelings of inadequacy, he said: "She was only in my life for about three months. I didn’t understand why she was interested in me – I’m just someone from TOWIE. I always felt like second best to Jesy. But that was my issue, not hers.
Explaining the downside of their relationship being put under a microscope, he said: "I’ve been trolled and it’s been tough. I used to think people who complained about trolling were making a bit of a fuss, but I’ve seen how bad people can get.
"Jesy and I ended on good terms, I didn’t use her," he clarified.
As for how his recent reunion with ex Amber Dowding is going, Chris shared that the pair have never been happier and are both ready to put their mistakes behind them and look to the future.
"The time apart gave me time to grow up. We didn’t talk for nearly eight months and, during that time, I changed a lot and I think I can be a much better boyfriend to Amber this time around," he added.
