Louise Redknapp has denied reports that she is ‘furious’ with her former Strictly partner Kevin Clifton over his new ‘relationship’ with Stacey Dooley.
Following their stint on the BBC dancing contest in 2017, in which the duo reached the final, Louise, 44, and Kevin, 36, maintained a close friendship, with Louise enjoying a night out with the dancer’s parents just last December.
But according to a new report by The Sun, Louise alleged Kevin had ‘ghosted’ her, leading to a fall-out when he struck up a new relationship with Stacey.
However, a source close to the former Eternal singer has denied the claims, admitting Louise ‘couldn’t care less’ about Kevin and Stacey’s new romance.
“She’s neither furious or upset with Kevin. She couldn’t care less!” the insider said.
“She definitely isn’t ‘obsessed’ with him. She hasn’t spoken to him for a while and that’s that – she was friends with him for a whole – and now he’s more of an acquaintance.”
They added to MailOnline, “She’s super busy with her career and family.”
The source added that although Louise was a good friend of Kevin’s, she did stop hearing from him when he started Strictly and their friendship “fizzled out”.
Louise admitted earlier this month that she and Kevin are no longer on speaking terms, and have even unfollowed each other on social media.
She revealed, “I haven’t spoken to him for a long time. Most probably since the show started. Not since last year.”
Speaking on the relationship rumours between Strictly champs Kevin and Stacey – who appeared to confirm their romance when she shared a sweet snap of her and Kevin backstage at one of his shows – Louise admitted she knows little about Kevin’s private life.
She told The Sun, “It’s really hard to pass judgment when you don’t know someone’s situation. I haven’t spoken to Kevin in a long, long time and I’ve never met Stacey, so I have no idea.”
