Max George slams Ulrika Jonsson after she called Maisie Smith ‘attention-seeking’

Max George slams Ulrika Jonsson after she called Maisie Smith ‘attention-seeking’

Max jumped to defend his girlfriend.

Max George has slammed Ulrika Jonsson after the presenter described his girlfriend Maisie Smith as 'attention-seeking'.

The singer began dating EastEnders star Maisie earlier this year, and the pair have been joined at the hip from day one - even sparking engagement rumours as recently as this week while on holiday in Cyprus.

But for a moment, fans were concerned that the couple had called it quits when Maisie posted a since-deleted video of herself crying to TikTok.

In the video, Maisie had been mouthing along to the song 'Evergreen (You Didn't Deserve Me At All)' by Omar Apollo.

Although she was crying in the video, the caption read: "Nothing but happiness these days" - so you can probably understand by viewers were confused.

Concerned followers flooded the comments with support, wondering what could possibly have happened to make Maisie cry like that.

But amongst the hundreds of comments was one from Max George, who wrote: "My absolute world, my angel," putting people's minds at ease.

Plus, soon after the video was posted and taken down, Max and Maisie assured fans that they had nothing to be worried about and that they were just as happy and loved up as ever - and possibly engaged?

While most were relieved, it would appear that Ulrika Jonsson was furious over the 'cryptic' and 'dramatic' TikTok video. So much so that she complained about it in her latest newspaper column for The Sun.

"Now, Maisie’s not the first [celeb] to engage in this kind of attention-seeking nonsense and I doubt she’ll be the last," wrote Ulrika.

"I certainly can’t imagine reaching for my phone mid-personal drama to ensure I captured my tearful moment for people to see."

Ulrika complained that, to do what Maisie Smith did in her TikTok video, 'which was to accompany her tears with a cryptic message and dramatic music which had everyone tearing their hair out with concern for her, fraught with anxiety – and then in a subsequent post to be pictured snogging the face off her boyfriend as if nothing had happened at all', was insulting.

Max hit back at Ulrika.

It wasn't long before Max took to Instagram to share what he thought of Ulrika's criticism.

Standing up for his girlfriend, Max posted a selfie to his Instagram Story holding up his middle finger, accompanied by the caption: "Just for you Ulrika".

That definitely puts any suspicions of a break up to rest.
