A source said: “They met through friends and dated for a short time last year.
“It was a very passionate fling while it lasted but fizzled out.
“That was when James moved on to Megan.”
But her mum Sezer defended her last night, insisting she is proud of her daughter for “doing what she feels”.
She said: “I think Ekin-Su was probably upset that Davide didn’t show her interest and felt rejected by him.
“She is looking for a real man who will support her.
She added: “I don’t read a lot of the reactions because I know my daughter, but she is stealing the show.
“If I could talk to her now, I would say continue doing what you feel.
“This is your life. This is your choice.”
