Love Island stars Yewande Biala, Amber Gill and Amy Hart have responded to accusations from Lucie Donlan of Yewande of bullying her whilst on the show.
In Summer 2019, Yewande and Lucie were both stars on Love Island. There was no obvious on screen clash. This week, a revelation has shown that there is a lot more than meets the eye.
Yewande has remained very good friends with Joe, Lucie’s ex boyfriend from the show. On Joe’s YouTube channel he released an episode titled “BOYS vs GIRLS Relationship Advice: I can’t believe Yewande said that #Savage” where Yewande shared her feelings about Lucie.
Yewande said, “I didn’t like the girl you were seeing. I didn’t like her, she knew I didn’t like her. You were still with her though. He still stayed with her. She’s a horrible person really”. This episode aired in September 2020, but people have reason to believe this may be the reason Lucie said the following…
On an old Instagram post, someone asked Lucie “how do you feel about @yewande_biala saying you’re a horrible person?”
Lucie responded “she’s always bullied me…”
This comment was rediscovered on Reddit yesterday.

Amy, who was also a star on the show was also there for Yewande:
My final thought of the evening, this beautiful,respectful QUEEN has sat on this for almost two years. We haven’t spoken about it publicly because it was Yewande’s story to tell.I remember dates, times, locations of every conversation in that villa.There’s so much you don’t see x https://t.co/K7IjokOGax

There has been conflicting views on Twitter in response to this situation. Some have remembered Lucie’s conflict with Molly-Mae on the show.
all the girls on love island hated lucie and now she's trying to paint yewande out as the bad one. when you have a problem with everyone, chances are you are the problem?

Some people have commented how whilst Lucie should be held accountable, she should not be dragged.
I liked Yewande but to everyone dragging Lucie…. Remember Caroline Flack? Sophie Gradon? Social media is a toxic cesspit!!
