Their relationship has never been one to run its course smoothly – with the couple’s break-ups heading towards double-figures.
And while they are currently loved-up, it seems that Stephanie Davis‘ pals fear that her relationship with Jeremy McConnell has left her “isolated” from her loved ones.
According to Closer magazine , the 24-year-old former Hollyoaks star’s friends and family have been left “worried” that she lets herself drift into a “bubble” when her relationship with Jeremy is on good-footing.
The actress and reality star, who endured an acrimonious split and rift with Jeremy before the birth of their son, Caben Albi, has reportedly cut herself off from those closet to her as she’s rebuilt her relationship with Jermey.
“Everyone is really worried about Steph; she goes into a bubble when she’s with Jeremy,” said a source close to Stephanie and her family. “She completely isolates herself and spends all of her time with him.”
And it seems the cause of this isolation is down to Steph’s headline-hitting relationship, as the Liverpudlian actress’ family “don’t approve” of tattooed model, Jeremy.
The insider added: “She knows her family don’t approve of him, so she’s been cutting herself off from them.”
Mirror Online has contacted a representative of Stephanie for comment on the matter.
Earlier this month, Steph’s mum Pauline Davis retweeted a guide to spotting signs of abuse within relationships on Twitter.
Among the signs were gaslighting – the act of doing something then denying it and lying about it – chronic lying, using guilt and charm to get what they want and having a ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ personality.
“Signs of mental abuse go unseen, stop convincing yourself it’s love; it isn’t,” read the text on the original tweet.
Pauline then liked a few tweets offering support to Stephanie, including one from a fan that said: “Enough is enough now Steph can’t have her health compromised any more it will be hard but she will get through this [sic].”
Another wrote: “Look after @Stephdavis77 she needs it right now . She will come back from this .shes looking for the fairytale with the wrong person [sic].”
Pauline also liked a message that read: “A reminder not to ever put up with emotional abuse from a partner it’s absolutely toxic.”
