Ferne McCann's fiancé Lorri Haines has shared a cryptic post amid the couple’s ongoing voice note drama.
The controversy began last week when a voice note which is allegedly Ferne was released by an anonymous Instagram account.
The short clip, which has been edited down from a full voice note, features the voice believed to be 32 year old Ferne making comments about Sam Faiers – who was previously her friend of 20 years.
In the days since, a handful of other clips have been released with Sam’s sister Billie also being dragged into the row.
Ferne, Sam, 31, and Billie, 32, are yet to publicly address the drama but their loved ones haven’t been as quiet.
On Sunday morning, Lorri, 31, posted a cryptic message on Instagram. The quote read: “A wise man once said, ‘Be careful who you let on your ship, because some people will sink the whole ship just because they can’t be captain.”
His post comes as Essex Police confirmed they have been contacted regarding the matter.
A statement issued to OK! on Sunday reads: “We are investigating a report of malicious communication which was made to us in Brentwood on Thursday 29 September.
“We have spoken to the victim, a woman aged in her 30s, and our enquiries are ongoing.”
OK! has approached Ferne, Sam and Billie’s representatives for comment.
Ferne has been noticeably absent from Instagram since the voice notes began appearing, with a source claiming the star “can’t stop crying”.
"Ferne is devastated by all of this,” they told the Sun. “She hasn’t stopped crying all week."
Ferne and Sam are thought to have been very close at one time with their friendship pre-dating TOWIE.
Sam’s mum, Suzie Wells, spoke out after the release of the first clip. Posting on Instagram, Suzie told fans she could "no longer sit back and say nothing".
"This has come as a complete shock to myself and my family,” she wrote.
"Ferne has always been a very close family member to all of us over the past 20 years. It appears the voice note was sent just weeks after Samantha gave birth back in May."
"Since the voice note has surfaced more have been sent – very upsetting nasty things. We are as shocked as you are! Nobody should ever speak about their friends like this ever!
"My girls are my absolute everything and I'll do anything to protect them. I don't have anything else to say on the matter.”
The first message shared on Instagram saw Ferne appear to call Sam a “fat c***”.
The voice says: “Sam Faiers is a fat c***. Her thighs are so big, and I looked really skinny today and, urm, yeah.”
A second and what looks to be a third message have since been released where Ferne appeared to call the mum-of-three a “narcissistic b***h”.
A fourth hears the voice, which is allegedly Ferne, admit it's "weird" Billie's son Arthur shares a name with her ex-boyfriend, Arthur Collins, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence after being found guilty of carrying out an acid attack in 2017.
