‘I confided in friends and showed them the document. They were also horrified. This is obviously how it ended up in the public domain. 

‘Paul’s lawyer, Tom Amlot, a senior legal professional, pressurised me into signing a life changing document knowing that I didn’t have full understanding of what I was being asked to sign-which is scary considering the enormity of its implications! Don’t you think??

‘He said it was common practice. If it is, it should be stoppled!

‘I felt betrayed as I had clearly demonstrated loyalty to Paul during our relationship and he knows that without question!

‘With regards to ”courting the paps” this is a baseless and ridiculous statement to make as they were a constant feature of our lives!’

Summer went on to say that she was not trying to seek fame but instead felt it was her ‘public service’ to warn others about non-disclosure agreements. 

She added: ‘I am not sorry that the story has been published as I feel it is tantamount to a public service to warn other women about the horrendous implications these documents have.’ 

Prior to Summer’s statement Paul accused his former girlfriend of ‘courting the paps’ and took to Instagram to write: Morning all, thank you for your messages I’ve been receiving it means a lot. 

‘My silence on any matters is not a sign of weakness or agreement of what’s been said this weekend, merely I prefer a quiet life away from my day job! 

‘Take what’s read with a pinch of salt and read between the lines. I’ve never understood anyone who makes money selling stories and courting the paps… it saddens me thanks again.’

The non-disclosure agreement (NDA), which ignited the split, would reportedly have stopped Summer from discussing personal details of their relationship, including their sex lives and his wealth, with her family and friends. 

Following the public posts, Paul’s solicitor Tom Amlot confirmed the star and Summer split because she refused to sign the non-disclosure agreement.

He said: ‘I asked Summer to sign an NDA as is standard practice in order to protect Paul’s family and their private lives.

‘Summer insisted that she had no intention of selling any stories to the press and declined.

‘I think that her refusal to discuss or sign it caused concern, understandably, so it’s not entirely surprising that they have gone their separate ways.’

Paul first met Summer while organising a birthday party for his wife Alexandra at his local pub, the Duke William, in Ickham, Kent, where she worked.

The pair went public with their romance in the same month his split with his estranged wife was confirmed.

During their whirlwind two years of dating, Paul gifted Summer a £9,000 hot tub for her birthday, treated her to a £9,000 ring and flew her to luxurious holidays in Mauritius and the Swiss Alps.

The couple’s split comes as Paul prepares for a divorce hearing with his estranged wife who ended her 19 years of marriage with the star in 2017.

Alexandra filed for divorce on the grounds that Paul had committed adultery and last month district judge Robert Duddridge ruled that the estranged wife found it ‘intolerable’ to live with the chef.
