Gemma Collins and James ‘Arg’ Argent are no more, after a 999 drama over the weekend saw the Towie star admit he was ‘embarrassed’ by the attention.
Not it’s been reported the GC had ‘dumped’ her on/off boyfriend of eight years amid the welfare scare.
However the pair haven’t been seen together since a getaway to Italy in June and it’s Metro.co.uk’s understanding their split isn’t a recent decision.
‘Gemma genuinely thinks Arg will end up dead before long unless he gets clean,’ a friend claimed to The Sun recently.
‘The people around him just keep covering for him, and if that keeps happening it’ll have a tragic ending. He’s on a one-way ticket to nowhere.’
They added: ‘She’s told him she will not be with him until he sorts himself out.
‘He’s been to rehab in the past and she stood by him as she saw it as the right thing to do, but he’s not even doing that now. He’s a mess.’
James admitted he was left ‘embarrassed’ after his on-off girlfriend reportedly called the police with concerns over his welfare.
The former Towie star sparked worry among his friends and family when he failed to answer messages on Thursday. According to the Sun on Sunday, it prompted Gemma, 38, to contact the emergency services who then visited the reality star’s home in South Woodford, north London to check he was well.
Explaining the situation, Arg told the publication: ‘I wasn’t speaking to a certain person so I didn’t reply.
‘They became concerned and called the police and ambulance. They turned up and checked on me. They came up to my room to make sure I was fine.’
Arg, 31, insisted he was ‘perfectly fine’ and his parents were already in the house checking up on him when ‘this person’ called the emergency services again. An ambulance then turned up to his house at around 4pm and they had a ‘quick chat on the doorstep’ with Arg, who has just moved into the property.
London Ambulance Service confirmed they responded to a call at around 12:55pm about an ‘unwell’ person.
‘We sent an ambulance crew and incident response officer and treated a person at the scene,’ they said.
Gemma and Arg have had a tumultuous relationship for the better part of a decade.
Earlier this year in April their Towie co-star Bobby Norris confirmed the pair were back on while previously Arg took to Instagram to explain that he ‘can’t live without’ Gemma – despite her calling him an ’embarrassment’ just days beforehand.
After they reunited for the latest season of Gem’s reality show Diva Forever, they ever so quickly called time yet again.
We can’t keep up.
