Love Island’s Jacques hits back at Remi after assault claims

It comes after Remi, 24, claimed that he was punched by a pal of the rugby ace as he headed on a night out over the weekend.

The series eight contestant took to his Instagram stories accusing the pair of setting him up, with Jacques hitting back at the allegations.

He wrote to his fans: "We’ll start by the big lie following him home. 

"I can't believe he’s even put that but I understand why because it sounds bad and everyone starts thinking straight away 'No way that happened, that's disgusting'. It was actually 30 yards from the club.

"I didn't begin to start an argument, I wanted answers from him as I got a voice note on Instagram from some lad one night saying he was talking to Remi and he's been telling people that he's going to kick the s*** out of me.

"I just wondered if he wanted to or not so I can clarify it wasn't about the Love Island beef at all.

"Saying I can't move on but he's the one that has dragged my name on social media since leaving the villa even trying to make diss tracks about me which I just let it all slide because it was quite embarrassing from him…

"Finally just to clear up I was not physically involved in anything that happened only thing I did do was jump in the middle and not let both lads fight…

"Just trying to make it look a lot worse than what it is and try his best to tarnish my name AGAIN that's the real story cheers."

Jacques ended by saying: "I feel like I had no other option but to have my say as though a lot of people have actually believed him."

But Remi hit back that he had "tried to keep civil" and slammed his former co-star as the "fakest person he's ever met".

Remi continued: "I deleted my things and moved on. Remember this was all back in August.

"I never said you was involved in the fight I clearly said your friend punched me.

"Lastly, I don't want to hear anything about mental health from you again. The fakest person I've ever met. Give your friend up to the police."

Remi claims he was walking home from a Manchester club when Jacques started an argument.

The altercation was understood to be over "Love Island beef" from last year, which is something Jacques has denied.

Remi has previously slammed Jacques for making his time in the villa "s**t".

Of the altercation, Remi said Jacques' pal punched him "out of nowhere".

The model wrote on Instagram: "[I] wasn't going to bring this up but this has gone too far now.

"Last night I was assaulted by one of Jacques' friends. Jacques and him followed me on my walk back home from the club and stopped me.

"Then Jacques began to start an argument about the Love Island beef that was a year ago. Clearly can't move on.

"Out of nowhere his friend punched me. I think it was a setup to get me to react but I'm too mature for this."
