The Only Way Is Essex beauty Lucy Mecklenburgh was thought to be dating The Wanted singer Max George for the past few months, when it was revealed that Max had cheated on her. However, Lucy has now spoken out in defence of Max, saying that she feels bad for him, as the two of them were never exclusive.
Mecklenburgh told OK! Magazine, "He's single and I'm single - we're not an item. He can do what he wants, so I feel bad that he's getting bad press for cheating on me when we're not together. There are no hard feelings. Me and him have never been official."
She added, "We met up a few times, we had a laugh and we've been in contact. We're both single and that's the way we wanted to keep it. I think we both knew there was never going to be anything that came out of it. It was very innocent."
Earlier this month, it was claimed that Max George had slept with Simon Cowell's ex Jasmine Lennard, despite the fact that people thought he was dating Lucy Mecklenburgh. It seems that Max has been let off the hook by Lucy, who must be single again. Gentlemen, get in line!
