Love Island star Davide Sanclimente takes subtle ‘swipe’ at ex Ekin-Su after the pair called it quits for a second time

Love Island star Davide Sanclimente takes subtle ‘swipe’ at ex Ekin-Su after the pair called it quits for a second time

The couple announced their break-up last month

It seems like didn't take long for Davide Sanclimenti to begin slinging shots at his recent ex, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.

The pair - who first met on the eighth series of Love Island back in 2022 - announced their shock split last month in an emotional statement posted to Instagram.

Turkish actor Ekin-Su, 29, wrote at the time: "The last 18-months have been a rollercoaster of ups and downs, just like every relationship. Davide and I both wanted to make this work as we cared deeply for each other.

"Unfortunately I have recently made the decision to end our relationship and to go our separate ways.

"Breakups are never easy for any couple, and we hope that our privacy will be respected."

She continued: "I enjoyed our time together and will cherish the memories we made.

"Thank you for your continued support. It's been so lovely to have you follow our Love Island journeys together since the villa and we hope you'll continue to follow our careers as we go off in our own directions."

The couple announced their break-up last month.

And this week, a month after calling it quits, 29-year-old Davide has seemingly been firing some subtle shots at his now ex-girlfriend.

Taking to social media, the Italian model opened up about his 'totally different life' as he gave his followers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at his luxury holiday in Dubai.

In one of the videos, the reality star was seen stepping onto his sun-lit balcony, describing his vacation as 'bliss'.

"You're one decision away from a totally different life," he captioned the video, potentially alluding to his split from Ekin-Su.

This isn't the first time that the duo have parted ways, after they temporarily ended their relationship last year.

When the pair split last summer, Davide admitted at the time that things had been 'on the rocks' for some time.

Davide seemingly fired a shot at his ex.

He decided to clear up a number of rumours with a message on social media, saying that posting publicly about their breakup felt 'extremely difficult but necessary'.

"Despite the urge to keep it private, and contrary to what Chinese whispers are saying, I didn't blindside her as she was fully aware about my intention to post," Davide said.

"At first she even agreed to post at the same time, she did change her mind last minute though.

"I respected her decision not to post it at the same time as me, but since the relationship has been on the rocks for months and parting ways has been a long time coming, I ultimately decided to go ahead with it rather than keeping on dragging a situation that became unhealthy for both of us.

Ekin-Su announced their split on Instagram.

"This has been one of the hardest [thing] I ever did in my life and there’s no perfect way to navigate a breakup."

Davide also slammed the ‘stream of toxic criticism’ that had been circling, saying he found it ‘disheartening’.

He continued: “The constant creation of fake narratives on a person who was nothing but a genuine, caring and loving boyfriend for her and all he wanted was to enjoy and nurture the beautiful relationship they had.

“And instead we had to deal with ridiculous accusations and fake stories. This over time had a massive impact on my mental health and our relationship.”

Tyla has contacted representatives for Davide and Ekin-Su for comment.
