Lauren, 34, and Aaron, 25, were revealed to be dating late last year.
Earlier this week, Marnie broke her silence about the seemingly unlikely couple.
And now Aaron has hit back on Twitter.
“So apparently it’s WEIRD that me and Laurent are dating even though we met back in May and have been texting ever since!” he tweeted to his 714k followers on Twitter.

But later, Aaron decided to delete his tweet and rise above the drama.
“In fact deleted them tweets not even gonna rise to it! [sic],” he tweeted.
Adding: “I’m happy and that’s all that matters.”
Marnie, 24, explained that she thought the budding relationship was “weird” in her Star column.

“I can’t believe my ex Aaron Chalmers is dating Lauren Pope!” the former Celebrity Big Brother contestant said.
“I wouldn’t have put them together and it’s weird that she’s one of Lewis’ exes.
The cousin of Sophie Kasaei added: “She’s a bit older which could be good for him.
“I wish them all the luck in the world.

“I want Aaron to be happy and, who knows, she could be The One.”
Aaron and Lauren’s romance became public after they were spotted together at Winter Wonderland in December last year.
And according to reports, the pair had been seeing each other for several months before they were snapped.
“It was a very romantic date, they were holding hands through out,” an onlooker told The Sun.

“They looked completely loved up and really enjoyed the day out.”
Lauren had previously revealed that she had always fancied the 25 year old, saying: “I think Aaron is the hottest on the show and my type is tattoos and a beard, so he fits the bill,” the Essex beauty said.
