Samantha Mumba hits back at Jennifer Maguire over car crash 'selfie' claim: 'We've never even met'
It looks like there's a new Irish showbiz rivalry brewing.
Singer Samantha Mumba has hit back at RTE star Jennifer Maguire, after Jennifer labelled Samantha Mumba's post crash photos as "inappropriate".
Samantha, who is nine months pregnant, shared a snap on Instagram of a recent car crash, with her legs on a stretcher in an ambulance looking onto the wreckage.
And the Gotta Tell you songstress said she was "lucky to be alive" after the smash.
Maguire, who is also heavily pregnant, slammed the pictures in her Irish Sun on Sunday column, saying "How did it even enter her head at that point that this would be a good time to tweet? It's so bizarre to me."
So yesterday was a bad day. 3 car pile up that we got the brunt of. My poor car written off a week before the baby is due. As is her carseat. However on a more positive note God protected us all...after spending the night in hospital monitoring her we are just so grateful that our little girl is ok and this wasn't any worse. Serious reality check
But Samantha has now spoken out about the criticism, saying she took the pictures for insurance purposes and only shared them after she and her unborn baby were deemed safe.
"I would have presumed anyone with half a brain, never mind another pregnant woman, would have already known my only concern at the actual time was my baby," she told the Irish Sun.
"To the best of my knowledge, we have never met so i definitely don't expect empathy from her. I wish Jennifer well with the rest of her pregnancy."
