Mario Falcone & Lucy Mecklenburgh In Twitter Row
Former TOWIE couple opened the ex-files...
Lucy Mecklenburgh dumped boyfriend earlier this year after allegedly catching him flirting with a model on Twitter. So it’s no surprise The Only Way Is Essex duo took to the social networking site today to air their grievances.
The row erupted after Lucy used her new! magazine column to rubbish rumours that she and her TOWIE co-star were back together. “I want to be single over Christmas and go out with my friends every week,” wrote Lucy. “Having a boyfriend is still on the back-burner for the time being.”
The Twittersphere exploded last week after a snap of Mario and Lucy partying together went viral. But Lucy explained that the original pic also included a female fan who had asked for a photo: “Mario was on the table behind so he photobombed us and pulled a silly face, but the girl was cropped out of the picture to make it look like it was just me and Mario on the night out!”
However Mario took to Twitter to accuse her of hiding the truth: “Why have a column in a magazine if you're going to fill it with lies” he tweeted. Mario then accused Lucy of having TOWIE co-star Tom Pearce to stay after turning her down on Saturday and criticized her for “playing the victim”.
Lucy denied the claims, tweeting “No lies as I thought u were a gent!” (sic) before both TOWIE stars deleted their tweets.
