DAN Edgar’s shock romance with Chloe Sims has sparked a massive row with best pal Joey Essex – as the pair fallout for the first time in their friendship.
The Sun revealed last week that Towie co-stars Chloe, 36, and Dan, 28, were dating – as insiders confirm Joey feels “betrayed” over their new relationship.
A source said: “Joey is very protective over Chloe – they’re cousins but he’s always looked at her as a sister.
“He isn’t at all happy that Dan and Chloe are seeing each other. He knows what Dan is like and has seen how he behaves with women on holiday in Ibiza.
“If he thought Dan was going to take care of Chloe and her daughter then he would give them both his blessing.
“But he knows it’s only a matter of time until Dan disrespects her and it all ends in tears. He sees Dan as a dirty dog and feels massively betrayed by their romance.”
Joey isn’t the only one furious over Dan’s new romance with Chloe.
Amber Turner has also hit the roof – weeks after being axed from the show after refusing to film scenes with her ex.
Insiders say Amber claimed she knew there was something between them all along after going “ballistic” on the phone to Dan while he was still in Thailand.
