Love Island star Kaz Crossley claims that Chris Brown once slid into her DMs but she was 'put off' by his approach.

The 27-year-old reality star, who shot to fame on the ITV dating show in 2018, admitted that she seldom has famous people messaging her on Instagram - apart from this one time.

Speaking on the BBC Sounds Slide Into My Podcast, Kaz was chatting to Snoochie Shy, Jordan Hames and Jamie Laing when she made the admission.

During the podcast, Kaz claimed that Rihanna's ex boyfriend sent her an emoji - but she would have preferred a more thoughtful message.

"I really don't get that many blue ticks or celebrities in my DMs, I'm not gonna lie, like... I'm not lying, I don't lie, bro," she said on the show.

Kaz then added: "Actually - I tell a lie - Chris Brown... Chris Brown put the eyes to me."

"I think I just put "hey" and that was it," Kaz said.

Kaz didn't seem too impressed by the DM, adding: "It just puts me off because it's just like he's doing that to like bare girls, like I'd rather have like a really thoughtful message to be honest."

The Love Island star's admission came as it was revealed that Kaz would be joining the cast of Ex On The Beach.

The star will join a host of singletons in Colombia, where the series is set to be filmed in June.

Kaz's ex boyfriend Theo Campbell is also rumoured to make an appearance on the upcoming show.

The sport star, who recently became a dad for the first time, and Kaz had a public split in 2020.

A the time, Theo was clearly hurt by the sour split, and told FUBAR radio that he had been 'slinged'.

He added: "I don't know what to call it. What's the right way to say it? I got slinged! I don't know what to call it.
