Megan Barton-Hanson has hit out at Dancing on Ice’s Vanessa Bauer again and said that she has “zero respect”.
The reality star’s boyfriend, Wes Nelson, is partnered with the professional skater for the programme and Megan has made her feelings very clear about the situation.
The 24-year-old recently claimed on Instagram that Vanessa’s split from her boyfriend was “tactical” and hit out at the 22-year-old for becoming single shortly before her debut with Wes in the competition.
While Megan quickly deleted her Insta Story about Vanessa, she has slammed the skater once again and branded her “disrespectful.”
“It’s funny or a coincidence that Vanessa’s break-up came out the night they performed, she clearly wanted to get more hype around their performance. She knows the score; she did the show last year. She’s 22-years-old,” she told The Sun.
“She knows questions are going to be asked about her and Wes and me being worried about them spending time together,” the Love Island star added.
Megan previously said that it “pained” the skater to introduce herself, before she told the publication: “Every woman will tell you it’s not ideal to have your boyfriend spending 12 hours a day with another woman – a little introduction from Vanessa would have gone a long way.”
“Dancing on Ice is very romantic and all about looking into each other’s eyes and parading around on the ice and being loved up together – it’s not easy to watch. Wes is my main priority, I love him. I am so passionate about him but it is going to be difficult now.”
“I want to back him, but I don’t want to feel awkward.”
Speaking of her deleted Instagram Story about Vanessa, she said: “I’m not going to backtrack. I was riled up, I let my passion and anger get the better of me but there’s no manual. I don’t want to be a possessive girlfriend. I want her to reach out to me.”
The 24-year-old added that she has not spoken to the skater since her and Wes started training together: “I’ve had no communication with her for the past three months. I’m not jealous; it is just a lack of respect. I was pushed over the edge.”
“It has always been a trait of mine to be brutally honest. I’m only human and there’s only so much I can put up with when I’ve sat there and supported them but I get picked apart. I can’t win. It wasn’t professional or classy but I am only human.”
“Girl to girl, if you’re spending that much time with someone’s boyfriend you would reach out to them and say ‘hi,’ you would introduce yourself,” she continued.
“But never once, even last week when I said good luck to them both on Instagram she didn’t message me. She’s never message me. When we finally met on Sunday night it was very quick and awkward – it felt forced.”
Following her performance with Wes, Vanessa shared a post on Instagram in which she wrote #strongwoman #womenempowerment.
“She claims to be a strong woman and that she empowers women but she’s shown me zero respect,” Megan said.
“If you’re going to preach empowerment then surely she would have held the olive branch out and introduce herself to me instead of pretending that I don’t exist?”
