The 28-year-old, who abruptly departed the show the night prior, told Mamamia that his former co-star is ‘sour’ and a ‘little brat’.
Leah, who shared a smooch with Davey before he moved onto Florence Alexandra, took a swipe at her former date in an Instagram post on Monday.
‘She is just sour and a little brat’: Bachelor In Paradise reject Davey Lloyd, 28, hit back at Leah Costa, 25, in an interview with Mamamia on Tuesday, after his former date mocked his abrupt departure on the show
‘I think she is just sour. She just realised what was actually going on, that I was interested in Flo over her and regretted taking her on a date,’ Davey told Mamamia.
‘She knew it all though, we even had an argument about it where I told her if I had my chance again, I would’ve picked Flo,’ the Sydney-based lad continued.
Davey went on to say that at the end of the day, Leah is ‘just a little brat sometimes.’

Following Davey’s abrupt departure from Bachelor In Paradise on Monday night’s episode, Leah, 25, took to her Instagram Story to take a swipe at her former date.
Sharing a snap of herself with a humourless expression, the Melbourne socialite poked fun at Davey’s inability to score a rose.
‘The face when Davey goes home and you know the truth behind it all,’ Leah wrote.
Getting in another hit in the hash-tag, she then wrote: ‘Player got played’.

The first rose ceremony in Fiji was a dramatic affair with the fate of the players left in the women’s hands.
With seven roses to hand out and nine hopeful men, the two men not offered roses would be sent home from paradise.
Failing to find a connection with Davey on their brief date, Leah bypassed the Sydney-based suitor and instead gave her rose to Mackane Reid.
No spark? Leah and Davey were the first to share a kiss but their romance was short-lived
And although Florence showed keen interest for Davey early on, it appeared the Dutch stunner couldn’t get over the fact he had chosen Leah for time alone instead of her.
She also had history with Georgia Love’s former beau Jake Ellis and was torn over whether to pick him or Davey.
Florence ultimately chose to see if her already existing spark with Jake would turn into something more, which left Davey packing his bags.
