Dan Osborne’s ex Megan Tomlin’s chilling warning to pregnant Jacqueline Jossa
Dan Osborne’s ex-girlfriend and mother of his son Teddy had told Jacqueline Jossa "rebound relationships never work" during a furious rant – after it emerged Dan had left her while she was four months pregnant.
Megan Tomlin, who hit headlines in 2014 when tape recordings of Dan threatening to "stick a knife in you" were leaked, had told EastEnders star Jacqueline that her relationship with Dan was nothing but a rebound.
"Lesson in life 1 – If you don’t want to be a single mum don’t PLAN a pregnancy without the guy knowing," Megan wrote in a Christmas Eve 2014 Instagram rant, which was quickly deleted.
"2 (rewind a year to when I was pregnant) a good person doesn’t get involved with a guy who came out of a relationship after a matter of weeks and has a baby on the way," she went on.
"3 Rebound relationships never last. Finally have a lovely time in Liverpool in the bed I was in just last week (mind you wouldn’t be the last time you’ve tried jumping in my place."
At the time, Jac was pregnant with the couple’s first child, daughter Ella, and Dan was dividing his time between both women’s houses.
His mate James Lock revealed at the time: "Dan’s living with Jacqueline… he’s between at the minute. When he sees Jacqueline, he stays at hers.
"When he sees Ted, which is pretty much all of the time, he stays with Meg. Meg’s got a separate annexe he stays in."
And even Dan admitted at the time it was a "strained" situation between his two babymamas, revealing: "It’s a really difficult situation. It’s not easy for Megan… but I’m trying to do the best I can for her, Jacqueline, and of course Teddy. We are trying to work through it all together."
In March 2015, months after the recording was leaked, Megan branded Dan "controlling" and said his behaviour had destroyed her self esteem.
A police investigation into Dan’s threats was launched, but later dropped – not before TOWIE bosses axed him from the show.
"If you haven’t experienced it, it’s hard to explain how much a person can get inside your mind and control how you feel," Megan said.
"Of course, I was in love with Daniel and I was embarrassed to speak out about what was happening. I didn’t want other people to criticise him and part of me hoped he would change."
She went on: "He tried to make me believe that the situation between us was my fault.
"You can hear this on the tape, when Daniel tells me I’ve broken up the family, despite the fact he moved on when I was four months pregnant – causing a considerable amount of strain and stress during such a precious time – only to then return once our son was born and leave again when he was four months old."
The shocking audio recordings had Dan telling Megan, "it won’t be funny when you’re in hospital" and calling her "dirty" and a "slag".
He also threated to stab her if he found out she’d had sex with another man.
Jacqueline leapt to Dan’s defence after Megan’s interview , tweeting a long ode to her boyfriend.
"People selling stories on him, show one side to a story, but people around dan know the whole truth, and you would all be shocked," she wrote on March 31 2015.
"I can assure you I wouldn’t stand by a man capable of everything dan has been made out to be, he is my best friend, boyfriend… and he is a brilliant father, above all else, I just want to clear up, he has never once been violent or even shown signs towards me at all."
She added: "I am 100 percent not saying what Daniel has said was right or okay, but people make mistakes when on dark places, and it’s something that we sorted out privately not in front of the whole world, it’s something he has apologised for and is embarrassed about."
Jacqueline also told OK! magazine that she thought Dan’s threats were "disgusting" – and admitted she was really hurt when she heard him call their relationship "a mistake" on the recordings.
"I listened to them and I was completely shocked by what I heard – I thought it was disgusting but it’s something that we’ve worked through as a couple," she said.
"Daniel has lost out on countless work opportunities because of it and he’s had to deal with everyone passing judgement on him, so I think he’s been punished enough."
She added at the time: "It caused a lot of arguments between us but he explained that he was only saying what he thought he had to in order to see Teddy. I don’t think I’ll ever forgive him for what he said but at least I understand his reasons why."
Two years later and Megan’s warning has come true – Dan and Jacqueline have split just 11 months after their fairytale wedding and while Jac is expecting their second child.
