CHLOE-JASMINE Whichello has added fuel to the fire that her relationship with Stevi Ritchie is well and truly over after being spotted carrying a crumpled up white dress, The Sun reports. The X Factor stars were set to tie the knot this summer after meeting on the eleventh series of the show in 2014, but split last month.
While Stevi, 35, has since claimed they are trying to sort their lives out, his former fiancee could have other ideas if these pictures are anything to go by. The 24-year-old blonde was spotted carrying a crumpled white dress as she made her way through shoppers in West London on Thursday.
With a pair of sunglasses covering her eyes, Chloe remained expressionless as she walked along, although her she looked as stylish as every in a pale ensemble consisting of white legged trousers and a lightweight shawl. The wannabe singer added a touch of colour with pastel blue heels and a slick of red lipstick.
After meeting on the ITV talent show, the couple appeared together on the sixteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother in August last year, just a month after becoming engaged. But despite putting on a loved up display in public, cracks had reportedly began to show in their relationship a few months ago, with Stevi blaming the long distance nature of their romance.
He said: “Me and Chloe, we don’t see each other much as it is. We live in totally opposite ends of the country. “When we do see each other we can argue. I can say things and she gets upset.” Stevi currently lives in his native Essex, while Chloe typically resides in Bristol when she isn’t in the capital working.
He added to Mirror Celeb: “We were putting too much pressure on ourselves and we want to get a house really. We just needed to be honest with ourselves. “We’re still together. I know we’re still in love and we’re meant to be.” However neither star has shared a picture together on social media in weeks, with Chloe’s last snap being shared on Twitter on April 7 while Stevi shared a bizarre photo on April 20.
In the black and white shot, the couple pose cheek to cheek as Chloe pouts at the camera and Stevi gives a small smile. He cryptically captioned it: “Knowing is not enough we must apply,willing is not enough we must do xx”
