After Mark Wright’s shocking tirade, Lauren Goodger gives a slightly unexpected response to his claims
The former TOWIE star’s agent issued a statement following Mark’s social media outburst about his ex, who he dated on and off for 10 years. Newly married Mark, 28, took a break from his honeymoon with Michelle Keegan on Tuesday night to angrily hit out at Lauren for allegedly continuing to bring up their relationship in the press and in her magazine column.
Lauren, 28, has remained silent on social media since the surprise tirade but her agent has defended her in the spat.
‘Mark is right – this situation is incredibly embarrassing,’ the spokesperson says.
‘Week after week Lauren has to suffer endless source story lies printed about her in the press surrounding Mark. The list is as long as it is ridiculous.
‘It’s hurtful for Lauren to constantly be painted in this way and for readers to actually believe it. That is why Lauren has taken to her own column in the past to defend herself against ludicrous claims such as the one that said she was going to gatecrash the wedding.
‘Anyone facing such embarrassing lies week in and week out is of course going to want to defend themselves.’
Lauren’s agent also hit back at suggestions that she’s jealous of Mark’s relationship with new wife Michelle, 28, by revealing that she’s actually seeing someone herself.
‘Lauren has privately been in a relationship too,’ they’ve told OK! Online. ‘And this unwanted attention surrounding her ex of many years ago is certainly not welcomed.
‘We would like to clarify that Lauren is paid the same weekly fee for her column every week whether it mentions Mark or not, and she has given no other interviews on him – despite the numerous offers. She once again wishes them nothing but the best.’
Lauren has previously denied that suggestive messages she posted on Instagram around the time of her ex’s nuptials a few weeks ago were aimed at the couple and has also hit back at ‘stupid’ reports that she was thinking about gatecrashing the ceremony.
But the former TOWIE star made an intriguing move this week when she jetted out to Dubai for a vacation, the same place where Mark and Michelle have been spending their honeymoon over the past couple of weeks.
Now that Lauren has issued a response, we eagerly await Mark’s next move…
