Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury have been accused of 'staging' their sweet reunion following his big win against Jake Paul this weekend.
The former Love Islanders captured the touching moment that Tommy came home to Molly-Mae and baby Bambi with his belt, but some viewers were seriously unimpressed.
Molly-Mae had decorated the house with balloons and banners to congratulate Tommy on his big win.
As soon as he walked in the door, Molly popped her head out before running toward him and pulling him in for a big hug.
It was a cute video, and fans were touched by the reunion.
But some people were fuming when they saw the vid, and called out the couple for apparently staging it.
Commenting on Twitter, one person said: "Is anything in these influencers life authentic? Everything has to be set up and picture perfect for Insta.
"As if he’s came back from a fight in [Saudi Arabia] and all he’s got is a backpack and the belt over his shoulder."
That tweet pretty much exploded, earning over 100k likes and 19 million views.
Another agreed: "Tragic how much this is staged."
In fairness, there's every chance that Molly-Mae *did* stage this video.
After all, she's a successful YouTuber and influencer. These sorts of videos are her bread and butter.
But fans argued that, even if it was staged, that shouldn't matter much.
At the end of the day, Molly's fans knew how anxious she was about the fight and how desperately she wanted Tommy back home, so of course she was going to include her followers in that important moment.
"Content creation is a job," commented one fan.
"Millions of people follow to see Molly's life. Of course the moment is staged for socials. Much like your favourite TV shows are staged with actors.
"I’m sure they had a real not-filmed moment."
While another argued: "Just let people live and be happy man, it’s a cute moment, staged or not."
On the night of the fight, Molly's sister Zoe captured the moment that Molly found out Tommy had won.
While Molly went off to breastfeed baby Bambi, her friends, including fellow islander Maura Higgins, watched the end of the fight downstairs.
When it was announced that Tommy had won, they ran up to her to let her know the good news, leaving Molly in floods of tears.
After his big win, Tommy dedicated it to baby Bambi, telling spectators: "I want to dedicate this fight to my new baby girl Bambi at home and my Mrs, I love you. I can’t wait to see you.
"This fight was for you. It’s for you Bambi, I love you".
