Sherif Lanre: ‘Unfairly treated’ Love Island 2019 star’s mum slams show amid SHOCK exit
Sherif Lanre’s mum, Diana Rollanson-Williams, has said she has spoken to her son after he left the Love Island villa but admitted she does not know the full details of what took place. However, Sherif’s mum has blasted Love Island for treating her son “unfairly” following his departure from the show today. Diana told MailOnline her son is not “fame-hungry” and insisted she is going to defend him. Speaking about her son’s departure, she said to the publication: “I don’t know the real reason yet, but I’m determined to get to the bottom of it.
“I don’t know if he has actually done anything wrong yet.”
Diana who is a physiotherapist said she would look into the Love Island code of conduct to “find out what really happened”.
She said: “I need to look at his Love Island code of conduct and I need to speak to him properly to find out what really happened.
“But I’m his mum, I’m going to think it was a bit unfair. I think so. I’m going to defend my son.”
Diana said Sherif had not gone into the villa looking for fame when he agreed to join the show and saw it as a “great opportunity”.
She added: “He is a lovely, lovely young man, a great boy. He is not a fame chaser. He was not looking for fame.
“Sherif is just a very tall, lovely young man who was invited to join the show, which he thought would be a great opportunity. And I still think it was.”
A spokeswoman for ITV told the publication: “Sherif’s mother does not blast the show and does not feel that he has been unfairly treated. We have a duty of care to protect both Sherif and his family and would request that their wish for privacy is respected.”
