Millie Mackintosh: ‘Move on!’
While many think she’s struggling as her ex-husband Professor Green lashes out, Millie’s so over it
Silence has been golden for Millie Mackintosh this week after the star seemed to remain tight-lipped over the release of Professor
Green’s explosive new single One Eye On The Door.
While the rapper’s recent interviews and latest lyrics seem to slam their two-and-a-half-year marriage, Millie – who’s now lovedup with ex-boyfriend and former Made In Chelsea toff Hugo Taylor – avoided retaliation, instead posting a chic Instagram photo of a recent shoot and appearing to exude a calm, unfazed composure.
In fact, 27-year-old Millie’s life appears to be business as usual. Sources at an event with her last week revealed that she’s ‘not bothered’ by the revelations from her ex-husband Professor Green (AKA Stephen Manderson), despite the fact that he’s rumoured to be spilling all about their marriage on his upcoming album.
Because despite laughing off recent reports that she’s pregnant (she was spotted drinking on Friday night, dispelling those rumours), she is ready to settle down with Hugo, 30, according to our sources.
‘Millie’s in an unusual situation: she’s in a relationship with Hugo that couldn’t be going better and while she was worried initially by what her ex-husband would do, she’s no longer bothered. She just wants to get on with her life. Hugo’s “the one” – and he always has been,’ says a friend.
Professor Green and Millie started dating in 2011 and were married in 2013 – however, on 21 February this year they announced the end of their marriage, and Millie quickly moved on with former ex Hugo. Although Pro Green has up until now remained silent over their split, the 32-year-old rapper has been posting a series of conspicuous tweets, which fans are speculating could be lyrics taken from his new album, including: ‘I know you shagged her, but luckily for you, she did not notice.’
And when Millie was snapped packing on the PDAS at Hugo’s 30th birthday in Monaco back in May, the rapper took to Twitter, seeming to throw shade at his ex: ‘Money really can’t buy you class can it’. Just months later, the very same words appeared on his track Back On The Market (subtle).
Stephen’s most recent track
She wants to get on with her life. Hugo’s ‘the one’
appears to delve into the pair’s sex life: ‘Me and the missus, we’re getting along / ’Til I do something wrong and it’s another domestic / People wanna know what my life’s like / Behind closed doors what my wife’s like / It gets crazy in bed, we watch a couple episodes of a box set and then it’s night night / When she hears this shit, it’s lights out.’
While Millie’s remained quiet in public, our insider reveals that her Halloween outfit was actually a sly dig at her ex because of that song. Millie, who posted a loved-up photo with Hugo, was dressed as a Day of the Dead bride. Sources says she was miffed no one picked up on it!
Previously, however, she admitted she was desperate for the situation to progress. ‘It’s difficult when people want to cover old ground, get stuck in the past and you just want to move on,’ she said. ‘I’ve never done a tell-all about my relationship and I won’t. I just get on with my life.’ And that’s exactly what she’s doing: the designer’s been building her fashion empire and has a string of new projects coming in 2017. But this time she’s putting her relationship first.
‘She’s focused on a future with Hugo and I know she wants to marry again. She’s told him she doesn’t want to wait and hopes they can start trying for a family next year,’ says our source. So will 2017 be the year of the first MIC baby? We cannot wait…
