Kendall Rae-Knight joined Love Island just months after being left heartbroken by her fiancé when he dumped her earlier this year. Now Kendall, who’s own insecurities manifested on the fourth night of the hit reality show Love Island when she was brought to tears on a date with Adam Collard, has seen an outpouring of support from fans.
“Kendall’s actually breaking my heart. Can tell the girl's been through a lot,” wrote one fan after Kendall’s insistence on taking things steady with Adam led to him becoming frustrated. Another added, “Nobody can blame Kendall for being so insecure any girl would be her FIANCÉ woke up one morning and just decided he didn’t love her anymore.” In fact, some fans have even questioned her choice to go on the show, saying,
“Kendall should not have come on love island. If I were dumped after five years at fiancé level, the LAST thing I want is being partnered up and rejected on national TV.”
Adam playing on Kendall's insecurity is literally disgusting. He's the worst and I hate the way he's being so annoying about her not wanting to kiss him. SHE OWES YOU NOOOTTTHHIIINNGGGG. WOMEN DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY OWE YOU PHYSICAL THINGS. Trash. #LoveIsland— Anna Ouston (@AnnaSummer97) June 7, 2018
“Bless Kendall I think it was too soon for her to come into #loveisland you can see she is still hurting over her ex... I mean they were engaged.”
Meanwhile other fans have shown displeasure at Geordie contestant Adam for putting too much pressure on someone who is clearly struggling with a difficult history.
“To my girl followers: Never, ever, let a boy make you feel insecure or weird because you don’t throw yourself at him after knowing him for two days.' wrote one. 'A real woman waits until she feels right & real man will never try to manipulate you. Stay true to yourself, Kendall.”
Another then stated,
“The way Adam just manipulated Kendall making her feel like there’s something wrong with her. Nah he can get in the bin, he’s cancelled.”
“Adam playing on Kendall's insecurity is literally disgusting. He's the worst and I hate the way he's being so annoying about her not wanting to kiss him. SHE OWES YOU NOOOTTTHHIIINNGGGG. WOMEN DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY OWE YOU PHYSICAL THINGS. Trash,” wrote another.
Others have turned on Kendall’s absent fiancé with one writing:
“Watching #LoveIsland and just want to say a big shout out to Kendall’s ex for making a beautiful, intelligent woman a insecure mess!! Well done pal, hope the “lads” can give you what she could have.”
Meanwhile Kendall is looking like the favourite to be booted from the show as bookies are giving ¼ odds on her leaving this Friday. At the same time Adam has expressed an interest in coupling up with someone else. Which, if true, may leave Kendall open to Eyal who has shown some flirty interest in her previously.
