Me­gan Mckenna

The re­al­ity star has turned her back on TOWIE amid ‘in­fi­delity’ scan­dals

Now (UK) - - News - Words by Sarah Tet­teh

she went through hell and back dur­ing her tur­bu­lent ro­mance with Pete Wicks – which has fi­nally come to an end. But don’t ex­pect Me­gan Mckenna to be sob­bing into her ce­real, or pushed out of her place in TOWIE af­ter be­ing plagued by ‘lies’ and ru­mours of in­fi­delity dur­ing their stormy re­la­tion­ship.

In­stead, Now can re­veal the singer is get­ting straight on a plane to Nashville to work on her mu­sic with a team of top pro­duc­ers, who have worked with the likes of coun­try megas­tars Car­rie Un­der­wood and Faith Hill.

We’re told that Me­gan, 25, has the full sup­port of her ex-boyfriend Harry Eden, af­ter the pair grew close again fol­low­ing her split from Pete.

A source tells Now, ‘Me­gan has al­ready put Es­sex and all the peo­ple telling lies about her firmly be­hind her. She has fi­nally closed the Pete chap­ter for good.

‘And Harry has been sup­port­ing Me­gan qui­etly in the back­ground. He leaves her to go to work with­out

tag­ging along as he knows she takes her mu­sic very se­ri­ously – that way, there are no dis­trac­tions from her singing. They have talked about tak­ing a break away to­gether, but af­ter her tour.’

Our in­sider con­tin­ues, ‘It’s nice that they don’t have to work to­gether like she did with Pete. He does his own thing and she does hers.’

Me­gan re­cently re­vealed she would be tak­ing time off from TOWIE as she is ‘emo­tion­ally drained’ from her split from Pete, ex­plain­ing, ‘I’ve ab­so­lutely loved my time on TOWIE, although this se­ries has been emo­tion­ally drain­ing, so I need a break from all the drama and lies.

‘My mu­sic is re­ally im­por­tant to me and I just want to fo­cus as much of my time on that as pos­si­ble, but I’d like to think I might re­turn at some point.’

Me­gan and Pete split last month, and the break­down of their re­la­tion­ship was shown on the ITVBE show last week.

Me­gan then faced the strain when her TOWIE co-star Liam Gatsby claimed he had ev­i­dence to prove she cheated on Pete with ex-boyfriend Harry – some­thing Me­gan stren­u­ously de­nies. Her close pals also in­sist the claims are un­true.

They add, ‘Me­gan just wants to move on and she is find­ing con­stantly re­spond­ing to ac­cu­sa­tions ex­haust­ing.’

Fol­low­ing her de­par­ture, Me­gan will con­tinue to work with TOWIE pro­duc­ers Lime Pic­tures – the team be­hind her hit show

There’s Some­thing About Me­gan, which fol­lowed her bid to break into the lu­cra­tive coun­try mu­sic world in Nashville, Ten­nessee.

It cer­tainly looks like Me­gan’s dreams of coun­try mu­sic star­dom are start­ing to come true af­ter de­but song High Heeled Shoes reached No1 one in the itunes charts, and her fol­low-up sin­gle,

Far Cry From Love, then reached No2.

And her exes bet­ter watch out – be­cause Me­gan plans to leave no stone un­turned when it comes to writ­ing about per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ences with for­mer flames.

An in­sider says, ‘Me­gan is tak­ing no pris­on­ers, and she will be wax­ing lyri­cal about her old lovers. She wants to stay true to her fans by keep­ing her mu­sic as real as pos­si­ble, and the team she is work­ing with out in Nashville are fully en­cour­ag­ing her to nar­rate her whole life through song.’

We def­i­nitely wouldn’t want to be in their high-heeled shoes when these new tell-all tracks come out…
