He wrote on his Instagram Story: “I just woke up and saw all these crazy fake stories.
“Gemma Collins and her family have been very loyal customers and friends of Shish meze and myself for many years.
“But please show respect because I’m a family man and have had a partner for over 10 years. “
Last night, a source told The Sun that Gemma, 39, had found her “dream man” in Nadir.
The insider said: “Gemma has had a very difficult time since breaking up with Arg but Nadir, who owns a pair of restaurants in Essex, put a huge smile on his face.
“He asked him to go out with her and seems smitten with her. The GC told people that Nadir was the man of her dreams and said she found him beautiful.
“It’s still early days for them but her friends are just delighted to see her happy and smiling again. ”
The source said Gemma could “see a future” with Nadir.
The GC had been involved in a tumultuous on-off relationship with Arg for years.
Earlier this year, it seemed to end in earnest amid allegations he asked her to have an open relationship with him, meaning they were both free to see other people.
Arg then sent Gemma a series of abusive texts calling her a “hippo” and “big f ** k” after confronting him about buying dinner for another woman.
Gemma has been going through a difficult time lately.
She recently revealed that she tragically suffered another miscarriage during the lockdown.
She spoke about it during an appearance on Loose Women while discussing how she suffers from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
Gemma had already had a miscarriage in 2012.
Gemma’s representative has been contacted by Mirror Online.
