Did X Factor Star Sam Lavery Really Dump Her Boyfriend By Text?
X Factor star Sam Lavery unceremoniously 'dumped her ex via text' after being linked to 5AM's Nathan Lewis
X Factor hopeful Samantha Lavery has been accused of a pretty savage love life faux pas – dumping an ex via text.
The 17-year-old star – mentored by Simon Cowell in the girls category – was dating 24-year-old barman Acea Brabrook but ended things after several months of dating as The X Factor took over her life.
However the shock dumping came as a bit of a surprise for Acea who scathingly revealed all in an interview – and seems to back up claims that Sam is now dating 5 After Midnight’s Nathan Lewis, 23.
‘We had talked about the future, we had plans to deal with the fame and the stardom. She promised it wouldn’t change her,’ Acea raged to The Sun.
‘She was so down to earth that I was sure that would be the case. Now I feel like I was just a back-up plan,’ he said.
‘If she had crashed and burned she would have come back up north and we would have carried on dating. But she is making a success of it, so now I’m history.’
He shared texts between the pair – with one showing Sam calling time on the relationship saying: ‘I think it’s best to just leave it for now. I don’t know when I’m home. What I’m doing and this isn’t fair on either of us.’
Rumours have swirled that Sam and boyband singer Nathan – also a contestant on the show – have been growing close, with reports that they have been smooching in cupboards when they are meant to be rehearsing.
And it looks like Acea is well aware of these rumours too.
‘She has a new love in her life — and that new love is X Factor. And it appears she may have a second new love, a fellow pop star,’ he huffed.
