Max George has given Ulrika Jonsson the middle finger after the TV presenter branded his girlfriend Maisie Smith ‘attention seeking’ for posting a video of her crying.
While on a loved-up holiday with her 34-year-old singer boyfriend in Cyprus, Maisie, 21, sparked rumors after sharing a video of herself crying with the caption: ‘You didn’t deserve me’.
But it didn’t go down well with Swedish-British presenter and TV personality Ulrika Jonsson, 55, who gave her scathing opinion on the “nonsense” post, calling actress Maisie “self-indulgent” and “very dramatic”.

Writing for The Sun, Ulrika said: “WHAT self-indulgent nonsense makes people film themselves crying on social media?
Surely grief, sorrow, personal trauma or grief is something private – not something you milk?
“To do what Maisie did, which was to accompany her tears with a cryptic message and dramatic music that had everyone tearing their hair out with worry for her, filled with anguish – and then in a subsequent post to see the picture of her twisting her face from her boyfriend as if nothing had happened at all, is insulting.’

And in response to Ulrika’s stinging words, Max came to his girlfriend’s defense with a very direct Instagram post.
Sharing with his 360,000 followers on his stories, Max wrote “Just for you Ulrika” along with a picture of him standing in an elevator with his middle finger up at the camera.
Since their relationship went public this summer, Max and Maisie have been very public in their displays of affection for each other.
This made her post while on vacation with her beau all the more worrying for fans.

The Strictly Come Dancing star uploaded the short compilation video backed by the song Evergreen (You Didn’t Deserve Me At All) by Omar Apollo.
In the clip, Maisie had a single tear rolling down her cheek, before wiping her eyes and cuddling her dog for comfort.
The final moment of the TikTok showed a red-eyed Maisie looking away from the camera lens.
While the video has the on-screen caption: ‘You didn’t deserve me’, Maisie is then shown saying ‘not at all.’
She captioned the video: “Nothing but happiness these days.”
Her post sparked a flurry of comments from Maisie’s fans expressing her concern, with one writing: “Hope you’re feeling better! You’re amazing and so inspiring.’
They first sparked engagement rumors last week when she was spotted wearing a ring on her wedding finger during a romantic trip away.

And Maisie Smith and Max George continued to fuel speculation as he was spotted wearing the ring in another loved-up video posted to Instagram on Monday.
The EastEnders actress, 21, and The Wanted star, 34, sat on an open-top bus as the soap star posed with her arm lovingly draped over his shoulder.
Maisie couldn’t wipe the smile off her face in the loved-up clip, as she wore a form-fitting leopard print dress with a pair of oversized shades.
On closer inspection, Maisie’s ring appeared to be a piece of jewelry rather than a diamond engagement ring.

The EastEnders actress added a few extra inches to her frame with a pair of bold orange high heels.
While The Wanted star Max looked typically dapper in a white shirt and cream trousers teamed with black trainers.
The lovebirds matched each other by both shielding their eyes behind pairs of sunglasses.
Maisie wrote: “Baecation”.
