Love Island’s Georgia Steel is said to be “fearing for her life” after her former footballer boyfriend apparently stole thousands of pounds from her bank account.
Georgia Steel, 21, has given a tearful interview about ex boyfriend Medi Abalimba after believing he is behind the thousands of pounds which are missing from her bank account.
“I went on my online banking and I noticed a drastic amount had just gone. I was in my flat and I’ve never been in a situation like that in my life. I was physically sick. I sat on my sofa and thought I was going to faint,” she explained.
Georgia continued: “I’m devastated and I’m fearing for my life. I don’t want anyone to go through what I have. I feel like this is going to affect me for life. Looking back I feel stupid, but at the same time it’s like being hypnotised.”
Medi Abalimba was sentenced to four years in prison in 2014 for impersonating an ex Chelsea player.
He reportedly turned to a life of crime after his promising football career came to an end when he struggled to recover from an injury.
The reality TV star previously said she knew about his past, but wanted to stick by him because she’s a “good person”. Georgia said she confronted Medi about the missing money but he told her it was nothing to do with him and she wanted to believe him.
However, after an intervention from her mother Georgia walked away from Medi during dinner. The matter is now in the hands of the police.
