Just last week it was announced that Paul Hollywood and his 24-year-old girlfriend Summer Monteys-Fullam had gone their separate ways after over a year of dating, and it was alleged that the reason behind their split was down to him ‘requesting her to sign an NDA to continue the relationship.’
Following a rather public spat throughout the papers, Paul then appeared to claim that Summer had been ‘selling her story to the papers’ and that he was just continuing to stay out of the limelight in order to get on with his life.
His initial statement read: “Morning all, thank you for your messages I’ve been receiving it means a lot. My silence on any matters is not a sign of weakness or agreement of what’s been said, merely I prefer a quiet life away from my day job!
“Take what’s read with a pinch of salt and read between the lines. I know the public can’t be duped into believing what’s out there from a person making money selling stories! And continuously courting the paps…There’s always two sides to a story you’ve only heard one.. ‘But alas I don’t play those games… thanks again.”
But clearly Paul’s statement has angered Summer, as she took to her own personal Instagram account to break her silence and reveal her side of the story.
Summer wrote: “His claims that I’m making money selling stories are totally false! I felt so betrayed by the NDA, particularly with how much pressure Paul and his lawyers put me under to sign it!
“I confided in friends and showed them the document. They were also horrified. This is obviously how it ended up in the public domain.’
She said she felt she was being pressurised ‘into signing a life changing document knowing that I didn’t have full understanding of what I was being asked to sign-which is scary considering the enormity of its implications! Don’t you think??’
“I felt betrayed as I had clearly demonstrated loyalty to Paul during our relationship and he knows that without question,” she continued. “With regards to “courting the paps” this is a baseless and ridiculous statement to make as they were a constant feature of our lives!
“Simple tasks as going to Sainsbury’s were opportunities for the paps. This was an accusation Paul has levelled at me since day one. He told me never to be photographed and to either drive at speed, lose or confront them with hostility!”
