Lauren Pope and Jon Clark have decided to go their separate ways following two months of on/off dating
Lauren Pope and Jon Clark have split up.
The 'Only Way is Essex' stars have been dating on and off since falling for one another while filming the summer special in Marbella, Spain, over August, but it looks like things are firmly over now as they have decided to go their separate ways for good.
A source told The Sun Online: "Everyone keeps saying to Jon that Lauren could do better, they can't believe she's dating him.
"Everyone always tells him he's so lucky and he's really intimidated by the situation. He's trying really hard to change, but doesn't feel like he's good enough for her. It's a running joke on the show that he's punching [above his weight] massively by dating Lauren and that's really got inside his head. He knows she wants to settle down and I'm not sure if that's what he wants either - he loves partying."
It's believed the 35-year-old beauty is "really upset" that Jon, 27, feels he's not good enough for her - especially as she's laid her feelings out on the line recently.
The couple's split comes just weeks after Jon accuses bosses of the ITVBe show of attempting to "ruin" his relationship because "drama and tears" boost ratings.
He fumed: "I understand Lauren and my happiness is at the bottom of the list for what the 'TOWIE' team want. They obviously want the drama and tears but I've said so long as we are a team and stick together we will be OK.
"There's a few people like Mario [Falcone, who dated Lauren a few years ago] who are against us as well, they need to keep their mouths shut.
"I don't see why they need to get involved. I don't like how Mario has been. He needs to f**k off now and realise Lauren's nothing to do with him."
