Someone's in trouble...
Being a reality television star has its perks. Invites to exclusive parties, exclusive windows of opportunities, plus, of course… money and notoriety. Reality stars like The Kardashians or any of the Teen Moms can tell you that being famous is great, but it comes with a huge spot light.
Said spot light comes with an enormous responsibility, which means… don’t do anything dumb. Or, in the case of one English reality star, don’t date anyone dumb. London based reality television star Ferne McCann is learning this lesson right now (as you read) because her boyfriend got into some major trouble early Monday (April 17th) morning. The incident is directing a lot of bad press her way, headlining her name with an event she wasn’t even around for.
The Only Way Is Essex
Ferne McCann stumble into stardom on the reality show The Only Way Is Essex in 2013. The show is a soap opera based in Brentwood, England; according The Guardian, it depicts “real people in modified situations, saying unscripted lines but in a structured way.”
Her run on the show ended in 2016, but in June of that same year, her and Arthur Collins started getting close. Their relationship has seemed semi on-and-off since it started, but just days ago, the couple talked marriage, despite having yet to be engaged.
Arthur Collins is a scaffolder and businessman from Hertfordshire. Not much is known about Collins himself but his relationship with Ferne has always been controversial.
“Not many people like [Arthur] and believe he’s not the right man for Ferne,” a source from Ferne’s close circle told The Sun. “Everyone just wants [Ferne] to be happy – and that may not be with Arthur.”
While Ferne was just convinced that Arthur was the one for her, the allegations surrounding his activities in a nightclub have silenced the wedding bells, and she may finally be seeing what everyone else sees.
On April 17th, about 20 people were burned (with a substance that has yet to be officially identified) in the Mangle E8 club in Hackney, east London. Twenty-five-year-old Arthur Collins, along with two other men, is thought to be behind the incident and wanted by London authorities.
Police were called to Mangle E8 after numerous complaints about a noxious substance in the area. The whole situation ended up with twelve people being taken to the hospital. Two men were even transferred to a serious burn unit. Yeah, it was that kind of acid, not the type people would normally want in a nightclub at 1am.
The security cameras got this picture of him on his way out, does he look “out of it” to you?
