Professor Green hits out after Millie confirms new romance

Professor Green has slammed Millie Mackintosh after she confirmed her romance with Hugo Taylor.

Just days after the reality TV star's divorce from the rapper was finalised, Millie took to Instagram to share a picture of her and former 'Made in Chelsea' co-star Hugo kissing on a yacht in Monaco.

She captioned the picture: "What a perfect end to an amazing weekend #hugodirty30 (sic)."

And not long after Millie's picture was posted, Professor Green - whose real name is Stephen Manderson - tweeted: "Money really can't buy you class can it."

While he did not mention Millie by name, his message came after he had earlier replied with a laughing emoji to a user who tweeted unflattering pictures of Millie, 26.

And he also wrote: "Dodging bullets since 1983."

The social media messages come after the pair previously insisted their split was mutual and they planned to remain on "amicable" terms.

Announcing the breakdown of their marriage, they said: "It is with sadness and regret that we confirm our separation.

"It is a mutual decision, we still care deeply about each other and would like it to be known that it is on amicable terms and we wish each other well."

A source added of the pair: "It's extremely sad that Millie and Stephen have decided to part ways, but they have managed to remain on the best of terms throughout their split and they are hopeful they will continue to do so."

News of the split came just weeks after Professor Green, 32, admitted he had only seen his wife once since the beginning of 2016.

He said: "I've only seen Millie once this year ... It was the first time I had seen her properly in 30 days. We had seen each other like ships in the night, but we weren't getting any quality time together.

"It is good sometimes to have space, but it is also difficult when you miss someone for that long."

And sources close to Millie have claimed her rekindled romance with Hugo is "more than just a rebound".

A source said: "From what Millie is saying it seems more than just a rebound. She's being quite coy about it but she's really excited and loving being around Hugo again. Everyone knows he was her first love and she seems to be falling for him again."
