Split: We take a look at all the signs the cracks were starting to show for the Love Island golden couple, who won last year’s series and looked seemingly loved-up earlier this week
Awkward: The now exes had attended the Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny premiere this week and while Ekin-Su posted an image with ‘my man’, Davide uploaded two of himself
Tension: Followers noticed and questioned the television personality why he had done so
Before Davide confirmed they had split, eagle-eyed fans noticed a stark difference in social media posts between the couple.
The now exes had attended the Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny premiere earlier this week and hit the red carpet.
Ekin-Su had posted a loved-up snap with ‘my man’, but Davide posted two photos of himself and then with Ekin in the photo dump.
Followers noticed and questioned the television personality why he had done so.
‘So she showcases her man in the first slide but she’s in the third in his post? Speaks volumes to me,’ one commented.
While another said after hearing of their split to Ekin-Su: ‘I knew you had a sad look about you here, lots of love.’
Acting career in Turkey
Star: Last week, Ekin-Su’s revelation she was wanting to return to Turkey to restart her acting career hinted there was trouble in paradise (pictured in Turkish soap Kuzey Yıldızı İlk Aşk)
Last week, Ekin-Su’s revelation she was wanting to return to Turkey to restart her acting career hinted there was trouble in paradise.
Davide is based in Manchester so the couple would have had to have a long distance relationship.
Ekin-Su lived in Istanbul for two years and used to star in a soap there called Kuzey Yıldızı İlk Aşk.
She told The Sun: ‘I would actually love to go back to Turkey at some point and reconnect with some old agencies out there, who I was in a soap with.
‘I speak both English and Turkish so why can’t I have a career in both countries?
‘It is a hard industry and I think people always tell you, ‘You can’t do this, you can’t do that,’ but you have to keep pushing yourself really. Even when people say no, you have to keep going.
‘The old show’s finished now, but if there was a new project in Turkey, I definitely wouldn’t say no.’
In April, Ekin-Su was said to be left ‘furious and upset’ after finding messages and pictures from two models on Davide’s phone.
A source said at the time: ‘It all exploded last Sunday after she found messages on Davide’s phone discussing their time together.
‘He had been messaging both of the girls and she suspected they had all met up one night.
‘Ekin-Su contacted one of the girls to tell them she knew about things. She was furious and really upset.’
She then posted a number of cryptic social media messages, including a tweet which appear to mock one of the girl’s Instagram snaps.
Night out: Davide was also seen leaving a party with two Icelandic beauties in London last August, whilst his girlfriend was away in Los Angeles
The post, which has since been deleted, read: ‘No man will ever take u seriously with just half naked pictures of u in a bikini and lingerie,’ while she also liked two posts from another user which mentioned ‘disrespect’ and the need for ‘distance’, according to the publication.
A representative for Ekin-Su declined to comment. MailOnline also reached out for comment from Davide.

Ekin-Su’s pal Lily also claimed during her interview Ekin-Su had landed a big brand deal, and at the launch event, Davide just wanted to ‘go out and party’.
She continued: ‘I feel like he [Davide] likes to party a lot. He’s a big party boy, this is what I’ve heard.
‘I know that he was at a big event that she hosted and was the face of and he just wanted to go out and party.
‘It’s her event, it’s her night. Be the supportive boyfriend. Support your queen! And he just wanted to go out.
‘It’s like, you know what Ekin, if he’s this type of person and if these rumours are going to come out as true then sack him off.
‘I said that to her, “If this is what is about to come out, you cannot stay there”. They live together!’
‘We’ve had our struggles’
The couple openly admitted to having a turbulent relationship after cheating rumours emerged.
At the time, Italian businessman Davide shut down the idea of their relationship being a showmance.
He said: ‘Me and Ekin-Su had our struggles due to our public positions and we still have them sometimes.
‘If there’s something that I would change or would have done differently [with Ekin-Su in the villa] maybe I would have taken things a bit more slowly.’
Davide went on to say that despite this, the couple were still very much in the throes of romance, particularly because they have the ‘same background.’
fans were left unimpressed as mere hours after he announced his split, he shared a shirtless photo along with the caption jokingly alluding to him going back into the Love Island villa.
