X Factor wannabe Stevi Richie “lied through his teeth” about sleeping with fellow contestant Chloe-Jasmine Whichello, her ex-boyfriend has claimed.
The ongoing saga of the most unlikely X Factor couple has been making the headlines for the past few weeks.
Novelty act Stevi (34) allegedly hooked up with former contestant Chloe (24) after she was booted off the show.
He then bragged to fellow contestants about reaching ‘sixth base’ with the wannabe singer and claimed he did not know she had a boyfriend at the time.
Chloe’s now ex-boyfriend has opened up about the affair, claiming Stevi lied about it to get more press.
“Stevi lied through his teeth,” Craig Wiffen told The Sun on Sunday.
“He said he was sorry, but he thought Chloe was single – something he later admitted was lies.
“Then he tried to blame The X Factor. He said he’d felt under a huge amount of pressure to have feelings for Chloe because it was driving his “campaign”.
"The fact they both lied to me is disgusting. And to know it was all for the sake of getting him more column inches makes it even worse,” he added.
Following news of the fling, charity fundraiser Craig went on to very publicly dump Chloe.
"Chloe-Jasmine is an alcoholic, a liar and a cheat. I hope you and Stevi are very happy together," he wrote on twitter.
