‘TOWIE' Star Lauren Goodger Reveals Sex Tape Hell: 'I Can See How Some Girls Would Feel Suicidal'

Former ‘TOWIE’ star Lauren Goodger has opened up about her sex tape hell, after learning that a clip, thought to be shot by her ex Jake Mclean, has been leaked online.

The six second clip has horrified Lauren, who didn’t know that the short video had been filmed.

Speaking to The Sun, Lauren explains: “It is mortifying and humiliating.

“I’ve got no control over the situation I am in. I feel powerless. My private life has been invaded in the most horrible way.

“I can even see how some girls would feel suicidal and not be able to cope in this situation.”

Lauren is keen to emphasis that she’s not sure if Jake was responsible for leaking the vid, and also has some wise words for other women who could become victims of “revenge porn”, where their exes post sexy vids online after breaking up.

“I can’t say I am a victim of it — as I don’t know if Jake is behind it,” she explains. “I am angry with him and have confronted him about it but it has not got me anywhere.

“He’s been texting me saying he’s sorry. I feel betrayed and embarrassed — although I haven’t done anything wrong or illegal.

“I would warn other girls: ‘Do not let this happen to you. Never trust anyone.’ Jake was my boyfriend and I was in love with him so I trusted him 100 per cent.

“When we were together and I was walking round the house naked, he would take pictures of me. He has got pictures of my bum and things like that.

“But he was my boyfriend so you don’t really worry what they’ve got on their phone. That’s the person you think you are going to spend the rest of your life with so you trust them.”

Since leaving ‘TOWIE’, Lauren has been focusing on her business ventures and is one of the stars rumoured to be taking part in ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ later this year.
