Hu­mil­i­ated Michelle: “I’m not sure how much more I can take”

Af­ter Mark Wright is linked to an­other woman on a boozy night out, wife Michelle Kee­gan has had enough

Closer (UK) - - Inside This Issue... - By Daisy Mclure

He’s been par­ty­ing H with his new Hol­ly­wood pal Mario Lopez in both London and Es­sex, and Mark Wright was forced to deny any­thing “un­to­ward” hap­pened af­ter he was snapped with a “mys­tery brunette”, who he later ex­plained was his friend’s girl­friend.

But in­sid­ers tell Closer the sto­ries about Mark – who was seen down­ing shots of tequila and doc­u­mented his boozy an­tics on so­cial me­dia – left his wife Michelle Kee­gan, 30, hu­mil­i­ated, say­ing she’s sick of the con­stant ru­mours about the state of their mar­riage. The ac­tress re­cently re­turned to the UK, but is keep­ing a low pro­file.

TOWIE REP­U­TA­TION

A source says, “Michelle hated see­ing the pic­tures of Mark out drink­ing with girls around him. She knows it was in­no­cent and of course she trusts him, but she’s an­gry about all the spec­u­la­tion sur­round­ing them.

“It’s just not a good look in her opin­ion. He’s a mar­ried man and try­ing to build a ca­reer as a se­ri­ous TV pre­sen­ter, and it’s frus­trat­ing to see him look­ing like he’s liv­ing up to his old TOWIE Lothario rep­u­ta­tion.

“It was a lads’ night out and was be­ing filmed for his TV show Ex­tra, so Michelle de­cided to stay home, but see­ing the re­ports the next day made her fu­ri­ous.”

Mark later took to Twit­ter, say­ing, “In our cur­rent so­ci­ety can men not speak to women aside from their wife with­out

peo­ple in­sin­u­at­ing some­thing un­to­ward is hap­pen­ing?”

The pair have spent months apart from each other this year, af­ter Mark re­lo­cated to LA in Septem­ber to co-host en­ter­tain­ment show Ex­tra, while Michelle has been abroad for months film­ing Our Girl.

TEN­SION BREW­ING

Mark de­fended ru­mours of a rift last week, say­ing in an in­ter­view, “We speak 20 times a day [on the phone]” and call­ing her “the most special per­son in the world to me.”

But as Closer re­ported last week, in­sid­ers say there has been ten­sion be­tween the pair af­ter Mark set up a string of meet­ings with TV com­pa­nies in LA. Ac­cord­ing to in­sid­ers, Mark is hop­ing to se­cure a US re­al­ity show for the Wright fam­ily, and at­tended a string of show­biz par­ties with his par­ents and sis­ters Jes­sica, 32, and Natalya, 17, re­cently.

Sources say Mark and Michelle – who tied the knot in a lav­ish £1m cer­e­mony in 2015 – are work­ing hard to strike a bal­ance to make their re­la­tion­ship work.

The source says, “Michelle knows Mark loves go­ing out and is al­ways the cen­tre of at­ten­tion, and he would never stop that. But she hates the drama that comes with it, so he’s vowed to be more care­ful. They’re de­ter­mined to spend qual­ity time to­gether at Christ­mas.”
