Thousands have taken to social media slamming her for offering her son Sayet’s girlfriend, Jess, $10,000 to leave him. In a series of controversial promos, Fatima also calls the 21-year-old veterinary science student a “slut”, “whore” and “prostitute”.
“I honestly don’t know why she calls me a whore and a slut,” a baffled Jess tells WHO. “I think it’s just because of the stuff I [wore] when we went out.”
The young couple have been dating for just over a year and decided to apply for a spot on the show in a bid to mend tensions between Fatima and Jess.
“Jess saw the ad and she just applied for the show straight away,” Sayet recalls. “A few days later, Jess got a phone call.” According to the 20-year-old car- dealership employee, his mum didn’t take the news about the show well. “She didn’t really believe me when I told her we got a call from Channel Seven,”he explains.
“Wehadtoshow her some emails to prove we were going on the show.” As for Jess, she says she didn’t speak to Fatima until the cameras were rolling.
“I never talked to her about going on the show, it was all Sayet telling her about it,” she says. With tensions at boiling point before filming even began, no prizes for guessing how things are going to play out on screen.
