Megan Barton Hanson 'kidnapped' pet hamster

Share article:

Megan Barton Hanson is said to have "kidnapped" the "incredibly wonderful hamster" she shared with ex-boyfriend Wes Nelson.

The 24-year-old reality TV star - who publicly split from her the 20-year-old hunk, who she met on "Love Island" last summer, on Saturday (26.01.19) - allegedly took their four-legged friend Jon Snow for herself, despite claims they would co-parent the pet no matter what.

A source told The Sun Online: "Wes knew something was wrong the moment he came home from a day on the ice and couldn't hear the squeak-squeak of Jon Snow's wheel.

"It turned out Megan had swiped the hamster and the cage and hit the road - days after asking for privacy for the hamster and promising they would be co-parenting the pet.

"Wes was shocked she'd just taken Jon Snow without saying anything after everything she promised."

Despite Wes's devastation, he is said to be understanding, because Megan will "take good care of the pet as he hasn't got much time to play with him due to his "Dancing On Ice" training".

Megan and Wes moved in together in October, but on Saturday the curvaceous blonde confirmed the pair had broken up with a tongue-in-cheek statement that echoed the one Gwyneth Paltrow released when she split from Chris Martin in 2014.

It read: "We are parents first and foremost, to one incredibly wonderful hamster and we ask for his and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time.

"We haven't really conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."

She signed it off: "Megan & Wes."
