Why did Love Island’s Ekin-Su and Davide split?
Davide confirmed his split from Ekin-Su in a statement, saying at the time: “Ekin-Su and I are no longer together. I am grateful for the memories and opportunities we shared together and I wish her nothing but the best.
“I would like for everybody to respect this decision during this difficult time. I will continue to support Ekin in anyway possible."
But a recent interview has since emerged, where the Italian star told this tabloid just days before they called it quits that they had been ‘struggling’ in their relationship.
"Me and Ekin-Su had our struggles due to our public positions and we still have them sometimes,” explained Davide.
"If there's something that I would change or would have done differently [with Ekin-Su in the villa] maybe I would have taken things a bit more slowly,” he added.
The reality star went on to say that he and his then-girlfriend were “literally the same person”, adding: “She is my copy-paste.”
"Also because we come from the same experience and the same background,” he went on, “She met my family and fortunately all my parents love her and Ekin Su's family love me.”
However, despite being a perfect fit in each other’s lives, the pair appear to have amicably ended their romance.
Ekin-Su is yet to publicly comment on their split.
