The fiery and ludicrous on/off relationship between Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell appears to have taken a rather more serious turn, with the Irish model reportedly being investigated over claims that he assaulted Davis at her home.

The 27 year old reality star, who met Davis on 2016’s ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, may be facing questions from Merseyside Police following the alleged altercation in Liverpool last Thursday. The complaint was apparently made by Stephanie at the weekend, with her giving a statement to police, according to The Mirror and other news outlets.

A police spokesperson said: “Merseyside Police can confirm a report was received of an assault at a property on Thursday 9th March. Officers were contacted on Sunday, 12th March and an investigation into the incident is on-going. At this time no arrests have been made.”

In response, a representative for McConnell issued a statement to Metro reading: “Jeremy denies any wrong doing, however he is fully cooperating with the police in their investigations.”

It came just a few days after Davis posted a picture of herself relaxing in the bath on Snapchat, with some alarming-looking bruises on her legs. Merely captioning the pic ‘Trying to relax’, she was then inundated on Twitter with questions as to how she’d sustained them.

McConnell had recently been back in touch with Davis after it was confirmed, after all, that he is the father of her newborn son Caben-Albi, the couple apparently setting aside their differences to co-parent the baby and being spotted around Liverpool together in recent weeks.

However, it was reported by The Sun over the weekend that McConnell had flown back to Ireland after two recent deaths in his family, of his father and aunt.
