08/06/2022

Tasha Ghouri's father has spoken out after he saw a video clip that appeared to show Love Island's Jacques O'Neill mocking his daughter while she appeared on the ITV show.

Jacques, who left this year's series prematurely due to mental health reasons, has been faced with an onslaught of fresh bullying claims as fans noticed he mocked Tasha while watching the Love Island final.

In the video which appeared on his private Instagram story, Jacques seemed to be mocking Tasha's speech when she was declaring her love to her partner Andrew Le Page in emotional scenes.

The rugby player then said: "You are a liar, an actress, get the f**k out."

After watching the clip, Tasha's dad Tarek, appeared to make a dig at Jacques for his rude antics.

The father penned: "Some people grow and mature from their Island experience, some don’t. It is what it is."

Once the video began to circulate, fans online also shared their thoughts on Jacques' behaviour.

One social media user wrote: "Jacques mocking Tasha in his private story is not only DISGUSTING but a COWARD move. Only a few weeks ago he was advocating for mental health."

Another fumed: "I'm not even shocked I won’t lie to you he radiates bully energy watching him as the season went on reminded me exactly like the guys I went to school with who bullied those they saw as weaker than them but would disguise it all in the name of banter when it’s anything but. Hope this opens people's eyes to the exact type of guy Jacques is."

While a third penned: "I was willing to give Jacques the benefit of the doubt and that he was truly working on himself. Then you see the clip of him belittling Tasha who's done nothing to him. Redemption arc folded like a deck of cards. He’s still a bullying p**** and using [mental health] is even worse."

Last month, Jacques explained the reason why he decided to leave the villa of love and admitted that the arrival of bombshell Adam Collard who clearly had an interest in his partner Paige Thorne didn't help matters.

Talking to The Sun he said: "I thought if I don’t get myself out things could go horribly wrong and I could get physical,” he said.

"At home you can remove yourself from situations, but in there you had to deal with every situation, and in that moment I took my microphone off, and walked straight through the front doors because I just wanted to get out of that place."
