Kady McDermott has broken her silence for the first time since getting dumped by a fashion brand over a furious exchange of words with Maria Fowler.
The former Love Island star shared a statement on Instagram apologising for her side of the row, in which she branded Maria’s two-year-old daughter Evie "vile".
As a result, she’s been let go by fashion retailer Missy Empire and will no longer be paid to model their clothes on Instagram.
"I’m only human and naturally I make mistakes on temporary based emotions, and being in the public eye unfortunately every single one of my mistakes get put out there to the world," she wrote.
"Forever getting judged for every step I take/do in life takes its toll. I privately messaged Maria yesterday my apology but as it’s everywhere I will do a public one too.
"I am deeply sorry to Maria, her partner and of course gorgeous Evie. I did NOT mean what I said. I was massively upset by Maria’s comments to me that made me feel SO upset beyond words and a degrade to my character, I then wanted to hurt her where it hurt too so I reacted irrationally and badly.
"It was a disgusting comment stupidly said in a split second of anger, I instantly regretted it and deleted the comment straight away but sadly the damage was already done."
She added: "I am reactive at times but I am not evil or a bad person. I am 23, still have a lot to learn in life with how to control situations better and continuing to grow as a person. I will not let my stupid mistakes define me but just give me the space to grow into a better woman.
"P.S abuse my appearance/personality if it makes you all feel better but please stop with the ‘go hang yourself’ comments and ‘I hope you get cancer’ and ‘I hope your future kids die in your arms’ comments, behind this Instagram profile I am a real human too with real emotions and there’s only so much I can take without it having long term effect on myself friends, boyfriend and family."
Ex-TOWIE star Maria had blasted Kady for their online feud earlier this week.
The 32-year-old initially launched into a war of words with Kady over claims she mimicked Maria’s interior company, Project In A Village, with her new home renovation business.
Seeing red with the similarity between Kady’s new business and her own, Maria privately contacted the reality star over Instagram in which she branded her an "alien head".
When Maria initially confronted Kady about claims she copied her business, Kady said: "You’re a grown woman with a child going about someone having a similar name to yours.
"So embarrassing. I wasn’t gonna say anything but I’ve just watched your stories and I’m cringing.
Adding: "So so so much more happening in the world then similar bios and Instagram names.
"And if you think I’ve copied you you should take it as a compliment. Maria no one wants to copy you. You’re no one. Grow up x."
Not taking her comments, Maria, who shared the screenshots of their conversation on Twitter , responded: "There’s more to life than Instagram followers kady. I’ve got a stable relationship.
"Getting married next year and have a beautiful daughter. ‘You’re no one’ with comments like that I think you’re the one who needs to grow up."
Kady then fired back: "You are so embarrassing now you’re calling a 23 year old a brass. Just because you’re one doesn’t mean everyone is like you. Cringe bag."
As their argument heated up, Maria then was left baffled when Kady labelled her two-year-old daughter Evie "vile."
Baffled by the low blow, Maria shared the conversation on Twitter and wrote: "So kady Mcdermott comes at me in my inbox calling me a nobody and resorts to calling my 2 year old daughter vile.
"What a lovely girl."
She then shared a number of adorable photos of her little one on Twitter after being left angry over Kady’s remarks.
Captioning her photos of Evie, she wrote: "Don’t come at me saying my daughter isn’t photogenic. She’s unreal.
"To look at a 2 year old and first thing you do is judge their looks you’ve actually got something wrong with yourself."
Now responding to the claims, a rep for Kady told The Sun Online: "Kady said a comment in the heat of the moment after she was being verbally name called by Maria.
"She deleted the comment within a second and as soon as she said it instantly regretted it and apologised to Maria.
"There is no excuse for that comment at all, she is deeply sorry and did not mean it. It was a comment in a second of anger."
However, Maria took to Instagram today to comment on the remarks again and insisted that Kady has yet to apologise.
She wrote: "For the record Kady hasn’t apologised as I won’t accept an apology, no one calls my little girl vile then gets to apologise and beg me to remove my posts via her agent.
"Posting ‘me me me’ pics of animal charity work to distract from that facet that this morning you abused a 2 year old with vile language so vain and transparent."
