SUMMER Monteys-Fullam has hit back at her ex Paul Hollywood shortly after he was seen for the first time after their split.
Summer accused the Bake Off star, 53, of making “ridiculous and false allegations” about her as he broke his silence about the end of their relationship.
“I would like to respond to the accusations made by Paul in his recent post,” she shared on Instagram.
“His claims that I’m making money selling stories are totally false!”
Yesterday it was revealed Summer thought the celebrity baker was proposing to her before she was presented with a gagging order.
“I felt so betrayed by the NDA, particularly with how much pressure Paul and his lawyers put me under to sign it!” she said today.
“I confided in friends and showed them the document. They were also horrified. This is obviously how it ended up in the public domain.”
Summer accused Paul’s lawyer of “pressurising” her into “signing a life changing document”.
The 24-year-old bar maid also revealed she felt “betrayed” by the move as she had “clearly demonstrated” her loyalty to Paul during their relationship.
Earlier today Paul accused Summer of “courting the paps” – something she vehemently denies.
“With regards to ‘courting the paps’ this is a baseless and ridiculous statement to make as they were a constant feature of our lives!” she continued.
“Simple tasks as going to Sainsbury’s were opportunities for the paps. This was an accusation Paul has levelled at me from day one.
“He told me never to be photographed and to either drive at speed, lose or confront them with hostility!
“This made situations very tense and stressful and upsetting, resulting in the most unfavourable pics at times.
“He would be furious and shout at me and blame me if I got photographed.
“However towards the end of the relationship I adopted a different approach. I accepted it as part of our lives and went about my business.
“Paul took that as a sign that I was working with them – not true and not the same!”
She now feels that she is “being thrown under the bus” by Paul’s “ridiculous statements”.
Summer concluded her statement: “I am not upset that the story has been published as I feel it is tantamount to a public service to warn other women about the horrendous implications these documents have.”
Earlier today, Paul was seen for the first time today after he broke his silence after his split from girlfriend Summer .
He could be seen arriving at a London hotel today before taking to Instagram to accuse his 24-year-old ex of “courting the paps” during their whirlwind relationship.
He wrote: “Morning all, thank you for your messages I’ve been receiving it means a lot.
“My silence on any matters is not a sign of weakness or agreement of what’s been said, merely I prefer a quiet life away from my day job!
“Take what’s read with a pinch of salt and read between the lines.”
He also accused Summer of “continuously courting the paps” after she sensationally dumped the TV star last week following his demand she signed an NDA.
“There’s always two sides to a story you’ve only heard one.. but alas I don’t play those games… thanks again,” he added.
The TV star – who was dressed down in jeans and in a black shirt – carried a large holdall as he appeared to arrive for a stay.
According to The Mirror, Paul’s divorce from ex-wife Alex being finalised had her convinced that a diamond ring was heading her way.
She was then left feeling “insulted” when his solicitor demanded she signed the legal contract instead.
A source explained: “She was totally heartbroken that Paul would even ask her to sign such a thing and took it as an insult.
“It showed her how he really viewed their relationship.”
Summer is seen over the weekend out walking the dogs the couple once shared
She left the £1million mansion they share together on Thursday morning with The Sun revealing that Paul launched into a four-letter tirade when Summer returned on Friday to collect her stuff.
The Bake Off star shouted: “Why don’t you f*** off back on that horse you rode in on?”, with the pair currently at war over their beloved pets — including a £35 chicken called Karen.
While jilted Paul has said that his ex can keep their Rottweiler puppy Bear and her horses, he has insisted the pink-beaked £35 Plymouth Rock chicken, bought last month, is staying with him along with several other unnamed hens.
Paul also refused his ex access to a string of expensive gifts he bought her — including a £100,000 Range Rover SVR plus a £9,000 hot tub he got for her 24th birthday.
A source told us: “Summer has always been a massive animal lover. She would far rather keep her furry and feathered friends over anything of any real material value.
“But Paul insisted he kept the chickens, including Karen, and says he might rehome them. It’s all getting very petty and unpleasant.”
A pal she confided in said: “Paul showed his true colours in the immediate aftermath of their break-up.
“One moment he was sending her grovelling messages seemingly trying to win her back, then the next he was swearing at her and her family.
“Summer told him that she didn’t want any of the gifts he’d given her, and that she was returning to take what was rightfully hers.
“That’s when he lost it and started effing and blinding.”
The non-disclosure agreement drawn up by the baker’s lawyers demanded Summer could not discuss their sex life, Paul’s wealth or anything about their private lives.
One chilling section in the draconian order warned that Summer was not to tell anyone the NDA even existed.
Throughout, it refers to multi-millionaire Paul as just PH, and Summer as SMF.
A statement from the Bake Off star’s solicitor Tom Amlot read: “I asked Summer to sign an NDA as is standard practice in order to protect Paul’s family and their private lives.
“It’s not entirely surprising they have gone their separate ways.”
The split brings an end to a tumultuous relationship, marred largely by the vicious words of his ex-wife Alex.
Former hotel chef Paul met barmaid Summer at his local pub while organising a birthday party for his wife.
They have always insisted their relationship only began after his marriage to Alex fell apart in November 2017.
In February, The Sun exclusively revealed that Alexandra got into a fiery spat with Summer when they bumped into each other at Marks & Spencer.
Witnesses claimed that Alex branded the young girl a “slut” and a “whore”, with the police even being called when somebody with Summer started to hammer on the other woman’s window in the car park.
A friend of Alex’s said at the time: “She was so shocked to see Summer that all she could say was, ‘Do you know how much you’ve hurt my son?’
“Summer laughed and started filming as Alex walked to her car.
“That’s when the other women started verbally abusing her. Alex was shaken and called the police.”
Alexandra and Paul share 17-year-old son Josh together, with the teen living with his mum in their former family home.
