Dani Dyer has revealed she feels “frustrated, afraid and violated”, after learning her ex Sammy Kimmence is “keeping an eye on her” while he’s in jail.
The Love Island star called time on her relationship with Sammy back in July – after he pleaded guilty to five counts of fraud in court.
Sammy, who was sentenced to 42 months in prison, reportedly asked a friend to “keep an eye” on Dani – after “getting jealous” over her friendship with West Ham star Jarrod Bowen.
Reacting to the report, Dani told The Sun: “After all the awful things he did came out in court and we split up, I thought I could start to move on with my life with little Santi.”
“This is just really horrible and scary. I have been left feeling furious, afraid and violated.”
A source told the publication: “Dani has tried to handle everything very sensitively this year at a difficult time. She is very conscious that anything she says publicly will always be there for [their son] Santiago to read when he’s older, and she has wanted to protect him as best she could.”
“All she wants to do is get on with her life. She is an independent, single woman and a loving mother. The thought that her everyday, innocent life is being monitored is of huge concern,” the insider added.
“Despite the fact that they are no longer together, Sammy having Dani spied on from his prison cell is deeply disturbing and has really shown his true colours.”
Goss.ie have contacted Sammy and Dani’s reps for comment.
Sammy pleaded guilty to five counts of fraud, after posing as a financial investor and scamming two pensioners out of nearly £34k.
Judge Timothy Mousley QC handed Sammy a sentence of 42 months in jail, which he must serve at least half of.
After his sentencing, the 25-year-old apologised for being an “awful human” in a letter that was read out in court.
Dani and Sammy rekindled their romance in 2019, after Dani split from Jack Fincham – who she won Love Island the year prior 2018.
The couple welcomed their first child together in January – a baby boy named Santiago.
