Former Love Island winner Amber Gill has revealed that she has received death threats after being linked to footballer Jack Grealish.

An article claimed that Amber was dating Jack behind his girlfriend Sasha Attwood’s back.

Amber initially brushed off the headlines, but today she took to Twitter to reveal that things have taken a dark turn.

“After the headlines yesterday making it look like I had given an interview saying ‘Im the other woman’ I have received hundreds of abusive messages and DEATH threats.”

“I chose to ignore the headlines but as the day went on I began to feel more and more angry and upset and I’m not going to just ignore it because this behaviour needs to be challenged,” she said.

“The two false articles written about me have invited complete strangers to DM the most vile and intimidating things, and worse still threatened my life! Why??”

“Because they believe the complete rubbish written about me yesterday. So, I’m going to just quietly ignore it,” Amber asserted.

“For absolute clarity and in MY words, I’ve never been the ‘other woman’ nor will I ever be. And I would never use the degrading term ‘other woman’ either (like we are collectible trophies for men!)

“How quickly you forget your OWN mental health campaign??” she asked, tagging the tweet with #bekind.

After the false story broke, Amber took to her Instagram stories to deny it was true, while making light of the situation.

“Any relationships or dating that I've got going on gets ruined immediately by stories like 'this is who she is dating now'.”

“Am I? Huh? Wait, I'm heartbroken?” she joked.

“And now you've just ruined my actual s*** that I've got going on. So thank you,” she said, adding: “If you wanted to know who I was really dating you'll never find out because of this kind of shit everyday stop lying.”

Last week The Sun published another story pertaining to Jack Grealish, claiming he had struck up a friendship with actor and TV presenter Emily Atack.

The paper reported that Jack had struck up a friendship with the 31-year-old on social media before meeting up at Emily’s home in London and at a hotel in Manchester.

It was reported that his girlfriend, Sasha Attwood, told him he had to choose between his relationship with her or his friendship with Emily.

Neither Emily, Jack or Sasha have publicly commented on the rumours.

Amber is not the first woman linked to the Manchester City star to receive death threats.

Jack’s long term girlfriend Sasha revealed that she was subject to online abuse.

Their relationship was in the spotlight while Jack played for England’s national team during the Euro 2020 games.

“They said, ‘I hope you get cancer and die’ or 'I hope your whole family dies’”, she shared in a YouTube video.

“They say, ‘I hope the next time you’re in the car you crash it and die, I hope after Wembley you die.’ I was receiving 200 death threats a day. I’m not exaggerating when I say that.”

“I had so many messages every single day. I still get them now, all day every day.”

"It just kind of blows my mind how nasty people can be for no reason whatsoever."

Sasha branded the trolls as ‘embarrassing’ and revealed that many of those who threaten her are young teenage girls.

“But it’s on a whole other level. It’s just crazy. It’s the nasty messages about my appearance, people’s opinions. What are you all doing? It’s embarrassing."

“The scary thing is, it’s young girls. I’d go on these girls’ accounts who have sent me stuff and they’re 13 or 14. It’s so sad.”
