You may remember earlier in the week we reported that Rochelle Wiseman and Marvin Humes (of The Saturdays and JLS – work out for yourself which group each one’s in) – had split up. Both claimed the split was amicable and that they remained friends.
However, they may have remained more friendly than anyone first thought. A tweet by a source called Urban Insider claims that the couple’s breakup was a cynical ploy to draw attention to their respective new singles:
Managed 2 catch up with JLS PR – Turns out Marv & Rochelle’s relationship/break up has been orchestrated 2 boost interest around new singles
Suddenly it all makes sense. I feel so used! It definitely sounds feasible – not more than a week ago, OK published an interview where Rochelle shared her plans for Christmas with Marvin and their families. Check it out:
But Rochelle told us she’s looking forward to her time off with Marvin this Christmas, which will be the couple’s first Christmas together in their new house.
She said: “The whole family are coming for Christmas, Marvin and I are going to have it at our house this year so everyone is coming to us. It’s going to be really nice, I’m looking forward to it!”
And while we’re on the subject of Marvin, Rochelle says the pair are still ridiculously happy and aren’t letting all the excitement from the ‘outside’ get in the way of their romance.
She told us: “You kind of don’t think about it [being in the limelight]. We don’t know any different, ever since we met each other it’s just how it has been.
Rochelle was also spouting about the joys of their relationship to Now Magazine recently as she talked future plans and possible babies with her impeccably built sperm donor:
I wouldn’t be at this stage in the relationship if it was just a bit of fun. I see all of that (marriage and children) happening with him one day – especially babies.
If we weren’t such cynical types, we’d throw in benefit of the doubt stuff like, ‘maybe she was putting on a brave face’ or ‘who knows, maybe he was cheating on her’. On the other hand, with The Saturdays desperately trying to plug their latest music, and JLS with a new album around the corner, there may be something behind this story.
We’ll just have to wait and see, won’t we? If we see an overblown reunion in a couple of weeks’ time where the pair declare their undying love for each other, then we’ll know it was a scam. One pinch of salt – why would a JLS PR confirm that a story was made up to help sell records? That’s professional suicide in some circles.
