TOWIE’s Yazmin Oukhellou defends Lockie for cheating on Danielle Armstrong: “I would have too if I was him”
As if there wasn’t enough tension between Yazmin Oukhellou and Danielle Armstrong already, the TOWIE star has now defended her boyfriend for cheating.
At the end of The Only Way Is Essex‘s previous season, Danielle walked away from the show as well as her turbulent relationship with James ‘Lockie’ Lock after learning that he had been seeing another girl behind her back. There has since been bad blood between the star and Lockie’s current girlfriend Yazmin, with the pair reportedly getting into a nasty argument at London’s Sheesh eatery recently.
Now, Yazmin has jumped to Lockie’s defence and argued that Danielle drove her ex to be unfaithful by treating him like “a zoo animal in a cage”.
Speaking to OK! Magazine, Yazmin insisted that she has a much better relationship with Lockie and she is sure for that reason that he would not ever cheat on her like he did with Danielle.
She said: “I’m very confident that he wouldn’t but he knows that if he ever did I’d be gone.
“There’s no second chances with me.”
Lockie added: “I’m a lot more committed to Yaz. Danielle and me kept trying but that was more because of the show.
“Now I’m trying to be the best boyfriend I can be. Our relationship means more to me than the show. A lot of people thought it was me pursuing her, but she’s the one who won’t leave me alone.'”
Although Lockie went on to describe Yazmin as “the most jealous person [he’s] ever met”, the couple are confident that their romance will prove the haters wrong.
“We know we’re not in it for the short term,” Yazmin said. “I see us being together forever.”
Danielle has since taken to Twitter, saying she is “bored” of TOWIE cast members selling stories to the press. She said: “Bored of people talking about me on a tv show that I left and now selling stories about me in the press 🙄”
