Alexa, usually do not play Toxic by Britney Spears.
Love Island USA star Felipe Gomes is firing back at ex Courtney Boerner for badmouthing their allegedly toxicreality TV romance once he left the villa.
I dont believe that way. I watched that part and I didnt get what she was attempting to mean, he tells Page Six exclusively.
So, I was like, OK, its her opinion. In all honesty, from the messages I acquired on my Instagram and everything, the [viewers] dont believe that way.
After Boerner dumped Gomes for new Islander Bryce Fins, she expressed relief at calling it quits with the Brazilian model as she felt their dynamic was toxic.
It had been toxic but she kissed me before I left the villa? Why are you currently kissing [me] and telling [me] in a conversation that you would like to learn Bryce, nevertheless, you still wish to know me? he asks.
However, Gomes doesnt want toget in the drama with Boerner as she pursues a relationship with Fins.Im not likely to fight or anything, he insists. I love her as an individual.
Still, Gomes cant help but note how quickly Boerners head turned especially after pressing him in what he could do should a hot new bombshell enter the mix.
She asked me, like, five or six times, So if another girl involves the villa, youre likely to turn your mind? Bryce found the villa and she turned her head. And I was telling her because the beginning, this may happen with anyone. Feelings can transform so much, he recalls.
Dont tell me always, Youre likely to turn your mind and you turn your mind for the initial guy who makes the villa.
Another point of contention was Boerner saying she found herself struggling through conversations with Gomes. Regardless of the pairs intense physical chemistry, she shared concerns he didnt show fascination with learning her on a deeper level during verbal exchanges.
I didnt feel it had been one-sided, Gomes says of his communication with Boerner. I was asking her normal things. But, in the villa, youre asking so a lot of things and sometimes you dont have nothing to ask anymore. Your brain is similar to a blackout and youre like, I want a rest now. I cannot ask you anything, he adds of the demanding dating process.
I simply felt she wanted me to learn her deeper in the form of a great many other things. And for me personally, its like, OK, this can come at the proper time.
Although Gomes patient approach didnt work with Boerner, he remains hopeful that his perfect partner is looking forward to him beyond your villa.
I understand an ideal relationship can look when Im least expecting it. You won’t ever intend to fall in love. Im ready for this as it pertains though, says the Dubai resident. At this time, Im just attempting to concentrate on work so when the relationship occurs, Ill be so happy and you will be sure to take pleasure from my time.
Until then, Gomes will undoubtedly be watching his new friends finish their journeys on Love Island USA.
Isaiah [Campbell] and Sydney [Paight], for me personally, may be the one [couple who’ll win], he says, predicting that the fiery duo will need home the coveted $100,000 prize by the end of the growing season.
They fight, they cry. They did everything and theyre still there and theyre still together. If someone walked in the villa, its very difficult to destroy what they will have.
Meanwhile, Gomes isnt confident that Boerner and Fins have what must be done to be named Americas favorite couple.
I am hoping they are able to go [to the finals], but I dont think they are able to win the overall game, he says. I dont feel theyre likely to win the overall game.
