ALEXANDRA BURKE is getting fed up with the false stories about her, admitting the lies are taking their toll on her mental health.
The 29-year-old singer has been hitting headlines in recent weeks due to her time on U.K. TV talent show Strictly Come Dancing, with the latest report in Britain’s The Sun newspaper claiming that she was arguing with her professional partner Gorka Marquez before their shock dance-off on Sunday night (03Dec17).
“There was obvious tension between Alex and Gorka as soon as they got ready for the dance-off,” a source told the newspaper. “As he gave her a few words of wisdom on how to improve for it, she straight away went in on him.
“She couldn’t stop bickering with him and saying things like, ‘I’m not having that’ and ordering him about. Gorka was taken aback with it all and was sighing and rolling his eyes.”
However, Alexandra didn’t hold back as she responded to the story on Tuesday, tweeting that constantly being faced with fake stories about her is taking its toll.
“I’m finding it very hard to read all of the lies published about me. I’ve tried my best to be strong and brush it all off but mentally it’s taking it’s toll,” she tweeted. “It hurts so much to read yet another fake story when all I want to do is enjoy this journey on Strictly. Please spread love… life is just too short for all of this.”
