Alternative: Some of the couple's followers were saying the gift from Davide was a promise ring rather than an engagement ring

It comes after Ekin-Su hit out at TikTok star Max Balegde after he claimed a ‘prominent UK couple’ are faking their relationship.  

Fans were convinced Max, who has 3 million followers on the app, was speaking about Love Island champ Ekin-Su and her boyfriend Davide on the latest episode of his podcast – despite not mentioning any names.

According to The Tab, Ekin-Su slammed Max in a now deleted tweet, claiming she doesn’t know who he is.

She wrote: ‘Oh f**k off Max. Trying to stay relevant by associating with us. Don’t even know who you are mate. P**s off with your sad TikTok life.’

On his The Useless Hotline podcast, Max said: ‘There’s one relationship specifically that’s very prominent in the UK media right now that I happen to know is definitely not real.  

‘I met the person who’s in it and they were quite nice to me, but they definitely said something that would indicate they are 100 per cent not in a relationship with said person.

Pals? Max previously posted a video on Instagram with the Turkish actress. He said: 'You are a liar, actress, Ekin-Su' while she quipped 'Ekin-who?' before the pair started laughing

‘When you meet someone and within the first hour they say to you ‘find me a small brunette with a tight p***y I can throw around’ and you know they’re supposedly in a very public relationship?’  

He added: ‘I then met the other person who’s part of that allegedly fake relationship, and said ‘I was just with such a body and they were so complimentary of you’ and they go, ‘really?’ As if to be like, we’re not actually together, that shocks me a little bit.

‘And then I met this person with the long hair and the boobs. They were really lovely and I felt for whatever reason pressure to tell them that their counterpart had just been saying really nice things about them when they didn’t actually mention them at all. But ever since then, I’d really clocked onto it, because if you go for a run and paparazzi are there… that’s staged.’

On Tuesday morning, Max reacted to the tweet reportedly put out on Ekin-Su’s twitter account and claimed he has received death threats from her fans.

He penned: ‘Nothing like waking up to hundreds of Ekin Su fans telling you you have 24 hours to live, and finding out she has tweeted about me, and has personally been messaging them saying bad things about me? Hope everyone else is having a lovely and MATURE day though’

MailOnline contacted representatives for Ekin-Su and Max.
