The Lucie-Joe situation on Love Island is getting out of hand – if you look at social media.

The 22-year-old Londoner has been accused of manipulative and controlling behaviour towards his partner, 21-year-old Lucie Donlon.

The surfer has been shown to be in tears on numerous occasions when Joe has said he doesn't like her close relationship with Tommy and thinks she should hang out with the girls more.

Now, Women’s Aid UK has released a statement regarding this behaviour.

Adina Claire is the Co-Chief Executive of the woman's advocacy group and she was the one who spoke about the subject.

She said, ''Controlling behaviour is never acceptable, and with Love Island viewers complaining to Ofcom in record numbers about Joe’s possessive behaviour towards Lucie, more people are becoming aware of this and want to challenge it.''

She continued, ''Abusive relationships often start off with subtle signs of control, so it’s important that it is recognised at an early stage. Love Island viewers are now very vocal in calling out unhealthy behaviour between couples on the show, and this is a positive development.”

Fans of the show are also worried for Lucie as it seems that she is quite isolated in there now, with no-one except Maura going to see if she was ok after her talk with Joe.

One said, ''Can’t believe Joe really just said “think it’s time to get close to the girls” to Lucie like????? Is she not allowed male friends. Lucie pls leave him.''

While another wrote, ''Lucie is probably the least shadiest girl in the villa and she's been nothing but nice but sis is out here crying every night because she feels so alienated thanks to Amy's manipulations. And to make things worse now Joe's turned too.''

Producers of the show have said that they are taking the situation seriously.

A spokesman said, ''We take the emotional well-being of all the islanders extremely seriously. We have dedicated welfare producers and psychological support on hand at all times who monitor and regularly speak to all of the islanders in private and off camera, especially if someone appears to be upset.''

They continued, '' All the Islanders are therefore fully supported by the professionals on site and by their friends in the villa.This means islanders are always able to reach out and talk to someone if they feel the need. We will, of course, continue to monitor all of our islanders in line with our robust protocols.''

Singer Ryan Adams has been hit with claims of emotional abuse, sexual misconduct and harassment.

The claims surfaced in a New York Times report where seven women came forward to say that the singer-songwriter had offered them help with their music careers before things became sexual and then abusive – both emotional and verbally.

The published report said that a 20-year-old female musician, going by her middle name Ava, had inappropriate conversations with Adam while she was 15 and 16 – he was 40.

Ava also claimed that Ryan had exposed himself in a video call.

The report said that Ryan had pet names for her body parts and messaged her that, ''If people knew they would say I was like R Kelley lol.''

Andrew B. Brettler, Adam’s lawyer said that, ''Mr. Adams unequivocally denies that he ever engaged in inappropriate online sexual communications with someone he knew was underage.''

Adams’ ex-wife, actor and singer Mandy Moore, also said that he was psychologically abusive towards her during their marriage.

In light of the report, Ryan took to Twitter to address the allegations.

The 44-year-old said, ''I am not a perfect man and I have made many mistakes. To anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally, I apologize deeply and unreservedly.''

He continued, ''But the picture that this article paints is upsettingly inaccurate. Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false. I would never have inappropriate interactions with someone I thought was underage. Period.''

The singers Phoebe Bridgers and Courtney Jaye also alleged that Ryan behaved inappropriately during their relationships.

The article claims that Ryan became obsessed with Phoebe and, ''He began barraging her with texts, insisting that she prove her whereabouts, or leave social situations to have phone sex, and threatening suicide if she didn’t reply immediately.''

Ryan is a seven-times Grammy winner and is set to play two sold out concerts in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on March 30 and 31.
