UPDATE: ”Marie Asemota” is a Fraud and a bully This could all be a made up Story.
The star – one half of runners-up Reggie N Bollie – portrayed himself to viewers as a perfect dad out to hit the big time so he could make a better life for his three children and wife Edith, 30.
But the singer – who was this week signed to Simon Cowell’s Syco label – spent most of November and December bombarding smitten Marie Asemota with lurid messages behind his unsuspecting wife’s back.
Marie, 36, said: “Being a good husband and dad is Reggie N Bollie’s brand but in Reggie’s case it’s a fake.

“He is living a double life.
“I thought he liked me but he just used me and then dropped me.”
Marie told how she and Reggie – real name Reginald Kojo Ainooson – exchanged more than 500 texts as he shot to fame on The X Factor.
He even called her from the toilets at Wembley as he waited to go on stage and sent her suggestive messages on the way to a concert in Farnborough, Hants.
In stark contrast to his family man image, Reggie, 31, pestered Marie for explicit pictures and asked her to perform a sex act on video for him as his wife was back home looking after their children Ikhon, seven, Nolan, five, and Dior, one.
Marie, from Canterbury, Kent, initially contacted Reggie on Instagram in October.
She left a message telling him she was enjoying his performances – and was shocked when he replied. Marie said: “I didn’t expect to get a reply. He thanked me for the compliment.
DIRTY TALK: The texts became explicit
“I said ‘oh if you want, add me on WhatsApp’ but I wasn’t expecting him to.
“Then out of the blue he just messaged me and said ‘I’ll call you tomorrow’.”
Reggie rang on November 27 and then added her on the free messaging service. Soon his messages became seriously fruity.
Marie said: “He said I was beautiful and that he loved my shape. It was intense.
“He was saying he could spend hours feasting his eyes on my body.
