hellomagazine.com

Jacqueline Jossa has shown an outpouring of support for her boyfriend Dan Osborne amid reports that the TOWIE star has threatened his ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin in the past. Taking to Twitter, Jacqueline gave her side of the story and tried to clear up rumours that Dan was a "violent" man.

"I can assure you I wouldn't stand by a man capable of everything Dan has been made out to be," wrote Jacqueline, 22.

The EastEnders star, who last month gave birth to her and Dan's first baby, added: "He is my best friend, boyfriend and he is a brilliant father. Above all else, I just want to clear up, he has never once been violent or even shown signs towards me at all."

Jacqueline then stated that Dan – who recently made headlines for his alleged "controlling behaviour" towards his ex Megan – had apologised for his past actions, and that their family troubles had been sorted out in private.

"People selling stories on him, show one side to a story, but people around Dan know the whole truth, and you would all be shocked," wrote Jacqueline.

"I am 100 percent not saying what Daniel has said was right or okay, but people make mistakes when in dark places, and it's something that we sorted out privately not in front of the whole world, it's something he has apologised for and is embarrassed about."

Jacqueline Jossa and Dan Osborne welcomed their daughter Ella on 15 February

Jacqueline and Dan first started dating in 2014 and in August of that year the couple announced they were expecting their first child together. Jacqueline gave birth to baby Ella on 15 February, and since then the doting mum has been sharing photos of her new family.

Her Twitter posts came after reports surfaced this month and last, claiming that Dan had continuously threatened Megan throughout their relationship and that Megan had audio-recorded proof.

Dan also has a four-year-old son Teddy with his ex-girlfriend Megan. The TOWIE hunk regularly posts snaps of his firstborn on Instagram, affectionately calling him "my world" and "my best friend". He has tattoos of both Teddy and Ella's names on his ribcage.
