Davide Sanclimenti has confessed to being caught off guard by Ekin-Su Culculoglu's split announcement.


Davide Sanclimenti felt blindsided by Ekin-Su Culculoglu's split announcement.

The 'Love Island' star has explained that while their break-up was a joint decision, he was surprised by the timing of Ekin-Su's announcement, as it came amid her appearance on 'The Traitors US'.

Davide wrote on Instagram: "Life sometimes reserves surprises and suddenly wakes you up...

"Ekin and I, just after the ski holidays, decided to go different ways. It was a joint decision, but I was waiting to make it public to respect her time in the show. I don't know why the agreed statement changed last minute.

"I agree, it was a beautiful story, even with its ups and downs like all couples.

"I loved every moment, from the first time I knew her in the villa until life outside. I really believed in us and saw a future for us. But sometimes in life people need to grow apart. Is just the direction of life. I will treasure our moments forever.

"Now it's time to focus on myself. I love you all always, thank you for the unconditional support everyone showed me from the beginning."

Ekin-Su recently took to social media to confirm their break-up.

The 29-year-old beauty claimed that she took the decision to end their relationship.

She wrote on Instagram: "The last 18-months have been a rollercoaster of ups and downs, just like every relationship. Davide and I both wanted to make this work as we cared deeply for each other.

"Unfortunately I have recently made the decision to end our relationship and to go our separate ways..

"Breakups are never easy. For any couple. And we hope that our privacy will be respected. I enjoyed our time together and the memories we made.

"Thank you for your continued support. It's been so lovely to have you follow our Love Island journeys together since the villa and we hope you'll continue to follow our careers as we go off in our own directions. Love always, Ekin-Su. (sic)"
