"I said on the show I had trouble pronouncing Yewande's name, it's just what I'm like. And I asked if I could use a shortened abbreviated version of her name instead as a term of endearment – there's nothing sinister to it.
"I regret how just a few old comments sent 18 months ago has snowballed like this and got out of hand, and drummed up some needless negativity. Can we all just move on from this please?"
Yewande, 25, was quick to respond to the initial resurfacing of Lucie’s claims with fury as she hit back on Twitter.
The stunning star wrote: “You refused to call me by my name because it was too “hard to pronounce” now you wanna say I bullied you !! Bullied," [sic] followed by an angry face emoji.
