TOWIE’s Courtney Green and Myles Barnett split up
The Only Way Is Essex stars Courtney Green and Myles Barnett have split up.
After a series of spats on this series of TOWIE, the two reality stars have decided to end their relationship.
According to the Sun, the couple’s split is no surprise as they have been experiencing relationship problems for a long time.
A source said: “Everyone saw them have a huge row on Towie this month over Courtney’s ‘flirting’, but the couple were on the rocks well before that.
“The on-screen row wasn’t actually the only cause of the split, there were loads of problems in the relationship way before all this happened.”
They continued: “Fans of the pair will remember they had issues long before Myles’ recent outburst, so the split doesn’t really come as that much of a shock to those who know them.”
The pair have been dating since before they joined the show last year, although briefly separated for two weeks in 2017.
Their relationship on TOWIE made headlines earlier this month after Barnett’s behaviour prompted criticism from domestic abuse charity officials.
After Jordan Wright admitted flirting with Green on the show, Barnett called his then-girlfriend “a dirty little dog” in public.
He continued to verbally abuse her as he stormed out.
Womens Aid campaign manager Sian Hawkins told the BBC: “It’s the kind of behaviour at Women’s Aid we recognise needs to be called out.
“If this is normalised by shows like TOWIE, it contributes to a culture that allows those behaviours to become normal as part of a relationship – we want to promote a balance of power.”
