Gemma Collins has reportedly sparked concern among pals after Mirror Online exclusively revealed she got back together with James Argent for a flirtatious night out just three months after their highly-publicised split.
The GC, 39, and Arg, 32, beamed as they reunited at Circolo Popolare in London for a low-key meal last month.
Gemma and Arg had an explosive falling out earlier this year which led to their bitter break-up.
At the time, the blonde bombshell shared foul-mouthed texts from her ex branding her a “hippo” and a “fat f**k”.
They have got a lot of history together after they first came into each other’s lives in 2010 on The Only Way Is Essex.
Over the years, their rocky romance has proved to be turbulent.
And now Gemma’s friends are said to be very concerned after she was spotted out with her ex.
“Her friends are really worried that Arg sees Gem as a way of being taken care of,” an insider told Heat magazine.
“She has said that she knows what she’s doing – but she has a massive weak spot for Arg, even when she knows deep down he’s sliding back into her DMs for all the wrong reasons.”
Gemma’s career has been going from strength to strength this year – despite the pandemic – and was reported last week to have raked in more than £5,000 a week during lockdown.
Meanwhile, Arg has reportedly been flogging videos for £83 a time after being left with zero cash in the bank.
He joined American video-sharing site Cameo where his fans can buy a personalised video message from him.
The source said Gemma’s friends are suspicious of the timing.
They told the publication: “Her friends think it’s all a little too convenient that Arg has been back in touch after learning that Gem has been raking it in.
“They all feel he misses getting that tender loving care from Gem, and the financial support. She always showered him with gifts and he’s starting to realise what he’s thrown away.”
Arg suffered a near-fatal drug overdose in 2019 and has had numerous stints in rehab to battle his demons, which Gem has supported him through.
But the insider said that self-proclaimed diva Gemma “still feels as though it’s her job to fix Arg”.
“She’s offered to pay for his rehab before and has always been very generous with him,” they claimed.
Mirror Online has contacted Gemma and James’ reps for comment.
