Seann Walsh’s girlfriend Rebecca Humphries has slammed the comedian for his “inappropriate, hurtful behaviour” after he was spotted kissing his ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ partner Katya Jones.
The 32-year-old funnyman is currently competing in the BBC Latin and ballroom dance competition with professional dancer Katya – who is married to fellow dancer Neil Jones – whom he was spotted locking lips with outside a London pub last week.
On Monday (08.10.18) the pair both released statements apologising for the incident, but now Seann’s girlfriend Rebecca has taken to social media to slam her boyfriend of more than five years, claiming he hasn’t apologised to her.
“My name is Rebecca Humphries and I am not a victim.
“I wasn’t sure whether to respond to events from the past week, but I feel the narrative has missed a couple of crucial elements that I would like to clear up.
“It’s incredibly good of Sean(n) and Katya to apologise in the media. I have received nothing, other than the support of my family, friends, and a host of strangers on the internet who all wanted to make sure I was OK. What I have also received are many offers to sell my side of the story, but I would prefer for it to be on my own terms.”
Rebecca went on to say the images were taken on her birthday, whilst she was at home on her own, and said that when confronted about the possibility of “something inappropriate” happening, Seann branded her as a “psycho”.
“Those pictures were taken on October 3rd. It was my birthday. I was alone at home when Sean texted at 10pm saying the two of them were going for one innocent drink. We had spoken and I told him, not for the first time, that his actions over the past three weeks had led me to believe something inappropriate was going on. He aggressively, and repeatedly, called me a psycho/nuts/mental. As he has done countless times throughout our relationship when I’ve questioned his inappropriate, hurtful behaviour.”
Rebecca then urged her followers to believe in themselves, and said it was time for all women in “controlling” relationships to take a stand.
“I have a voice and will use it by saying this to any woman out there who deep down feels worthless and trapped with a man they love: ”Believe in yourself and your instincts. It’s more than lying. It’s controlling. Tell some very close friends who, if they’re anything like my wonderful network, will swoop in and take care of the logistics for you.
“It’s also important to recognise that in these situations those who hold power over you are insecure and fragile, and their need for control comes from a place of vulnerability.”
