After just one week and six days together, Love Island Australia winners Grant Kemp and Taylor Damir have split up.
Grant, 22, was rumoured to have a secret girlfriend outside the Spanish Love Island villa, leading fans to believe that this may have been the cause behind the couple’s immediate break-up.
But speaking to Kyle and Jackie O on KIIS FM’s breakfast show this morning, Tayla and Grant each had a very different idea of what had caused the relationship to end.
“We had a little argument that eventually blew out and unfortunately, it’s come to this,” Grant said on air this morning.
Grant said that while the argument had blown out of proportion, he thought he’d be able to work things out with Tayla – hence his surprise when he saw Tayla’s Instagram post just 24 hours after their argument.
I want to take the time to thank everyone who supported Grant and I during our Love Island journey and especially everyone who has continued to support us since. It has been incredible so far and I feel lucky and privileged to have had the opportunity. The number one thing for me going into Love Island was to ‘stay completely true to myself and my emotions’ and that’s what I must continue to do. But it’s with great heartbreak that I write this post to inform everyone that Grant and I are no longer together, but will remain amicable despite the circumstances. I hope everyone can understand that the last few days have been very emotional and overwhelming for me and that you can all respect my decision.
“It’s broken my heart, it’s a bit unexpected but what do you do,” he said.
