Megan Barton Hanson reportedly dated a multi-millionaire who is 30 years her senior before her Love Island fame.
The stunning 25 year old reality star is understood to have had an 18 month romance with Paul Chaplin, who treated her to several pairs of Louboutin shoes, a luxury apartment and a Land Rover worth £30,000.
Megan’s reported former lover Paul, 56, has opened up to Daily Star about dating Megan, who was one of several women he was seeing at the same time.

Speaking about Megan, who is currently dating singer Chelcee Grimes, Paul, who also worked in adult movies, said: “We could have lunch anytime. She could bring her girlfriend. It would be great.”
Paul is understood to have said he treated the ex-stripper to holidays on private jets, designer shoes and lingerie worth thousands of pounds during their fling.
He added: “I helped Megan with an apartment, I don’t know how much it cost. It was a two-bedroom 1,500-square foot apartment.
“I got her a Land Rover Evoque and I would take her shopping whenever we met.
“I don’t know how many pairs of Louboutins I bought her and it wasn’t just them, it was Jimmy Choos and everything else. When I meet a girl for a date I always get them a nice dress, a nice pair of heels, Agent Provocateur underwear. It’s just nice.
“Megan was lovely and we had lots of fun.”
The former lawyer said he first met Megan at an adult entertainments awards ceremony in 2017.

Paul said: “At some point Meg pinched my bum. I returned the compliment and we were off.”
The millionaire dated Megan at the same time as a number of other women, but is reported to have said Megan was his “favourite”.
He also insisted: “I did not pay Megan for sex. Megan was not an escort.”
Speaking about the time he would spend with the reality star he said: “We would go out for dinner and a show. One of our favourite restaurants was Signor Sassi in Knightsbridge.

Paul also treated Megan to holidays, which they would travel to in a private jet. He said: “We went to Tenerife on holiday and it was fabulous.”
It’s understood the pair split in 2018 shortly before Megan appeared on Love Island and dated Wes Nelson.
Paul said: “She gave back the apartment. I’m not sure what happened to the car but we are still friends.”
The millionaire then went bankrupt in 2018 after he failed to give creditors back £16million.
