She's struggling to come to terms with being a single parent to daughter Dolly after splitting from fianc Alex Reid.
And now Chantelle Houghton has revealed that prior to their break-up she found telling text messages on the cage fighter's phone, which left her shocked and disgusted.
In an interview with OK! magazine she said: 'One night I looked
at Alex’s phone, feeling like he and one of this friends were plotting something
against me, and I found a text from Alex to this man talking about me.
Alex asked him: “Is it time to bon voyage her” Bon voyage me! I
couldn’t believe what I was reading. Dolly was ten weeks old. I’m the
mother of his child and had no idea he was plotting this.'
Feeling the strain: Chantelle Houghton was seen looking exhausted and emotional as she ordered a takeaway from a Chinese
After reading the betrayal on screen Chantelle has no desire to stay friends with any of Alex's pals.
She said: 'I wouldn’t want to socialise with Alex’s friends because in my opinion
they might be very underhand, some of whom I believe have gone to the
press and sold stories.
'I got to the point where he kept humiliating me –
you’re not supporting me, why should I support you Why should I keep
protecting you when you don’t actually seem to care'
And it seems the strain of her
situation is a burden too big to bear for Chantelle Houghton who looked
close to breaking point last night.
