When you gotta go, you gotta go… just not in Lewis Hamilton‘s private jet!
In an interview with The Irish Sun originally published on Saturday, the racing driver’s former flame Veronica Valle (pictured above) spills the deets about dating the athlete, and according to her he has quite an “ugly side”!
The now-33-year-old first noticed the social media model on Instagram, and after sending her a DM, Valle was flown from Houston, Texas to Barbados.
While the racer was initially “sweet,” she says he can also be “Jekyll and Hyde,” especially when it comes to someone using his bathroom!
“We were on the way to New York and Lewis went crazy after he found out that the pilot had pooped in the toilet… He was going to fire the pilot! He said, ‘Everybody knows that they shouldn’t take a shit on my plane.’ He was really mad.”‘
Unfortunately, Hamilton lost his (figurative) shit when Valle decided to do her business at one of his properties in the South of France!
“A few months later, at his house in Monaco, I ended up having to use the toilet that was next to the kitchen to do a number two… He saw me come out and said, ‘Why did you take so long?’… I told him I was pooping. You could tell he was so upset… It felt like he was going to yell at me, but in the end he just said, ‘You know you weren’t supposed to use that!’… He said I should have used the one in the guestroom. It was completely bizarre.”‘
But it wasn’t just her poop routine that caused Lewis to turn vile. From her weight to the way she ate ice cream (“He grabbed the spoon and said, ‘You are supposed to do it like this.”‘), the swimwear designer says Hamilton could be extremely verbally abusive.
On a different trip to Barbados, Valle claims:
“He would call me fat in front of all his friends. If I was the first one to get food he would say, ‘Look at you, you are so fat!’ He would tell me I would eat too much – right before I went to serve myself food. Who does that to a woman?… People started laughing at me and I felt bad. One time he was with some girls in the room and as soon as I came in he started making fun of me. He said, ‘Wow, you are so bright you look like a damn Oompa Loompa.’ Throughout the whole trip he was so ugly to me.”‘
Valle also dishes about Hamilton’s former relationship with Nicole Scherzinger, and why it ended.
“He told me the reason they split up was because she wanted to get married. He wasn’t ready… I think she thought he was going to propose. He didn’t and she got mad.”
Apparently, Hamilton also got “ugly” with the Pussycat Dolls star, and criticized the fact that she doesn’t write her own music.
“He said he comes in and writes his own music – but she only had someone hand her a piece of paper and say, ‘Sing this.’ He said, ‘She used to come in here and criticise me.’ He called her all the names under the sun.”‘
While Hamilton and Valle split after three months in 2015, she continued to see him in Barbados every August. On last year’s trip:
“I was at a party with him and I came to ask him if he was OK – but he just swore at me… He told me to ‘get the fuck out of there’ and that it was ‘none of my fucking business.’… I don’t understand why I was invited on that trip to get treated like that. His friend said when Lewis drinks, he loses his head. He doesn’t act the same… After just one drink he changes and becomes so rude.”‘
