India Reynolds has revealed that she received death threats online, after she was accused of ‘cheating’ on her boyfriend, Ovie Soko, with her ex.
Speaking at the launch of her Boohoo collection in London last night, India said she had a sudden influx of “nasty comments” this week.
India told The Sun: “In school everyone goes through phases and whatever, but it has only been this week that I have had all of a sudden, people writing nasty comments.”
“It was difficult, no one wants to see that and feel like people hate them.”
Speaking about the backlash she received following the false accusation, she said: “I was getting messages like, ‘If I found out you cheated on Ovie I will kill you.'”
“I was like, that is mental, you don’t even know him. You have literally read an Instagram rumour and now you are sending death threats.”
India is enjoying a strong relationship with Ovie, but admitted that this week, things were hard for them.
“This week has been tough. It is the first week we have had anything like that. We have been fine, personally dealing with it, as a couple, we are really strong.”
While their romance is still heating up, the pair don’t plan on moving as fast as their co-stars Molly-Mae and Tommy – who recently bought an apartment together.
“We’ve only known each other six weeks and we both like to take things very slowly,” she said.
“Obviously it’s really nice, but you become a couple on TV and people expect you to do all these things. We just want to enjoy it.”
India launched her brand new collection with Boohoo last night in London.
Ovie, however, was banned from attending as he works with their rival company, ASOS.
