EASTENDERS star Jessica Plummer “quietly split” from her daughter’s father before their explosive fight was captured in the street.
The Sun revealed the 28-year-old soap star was filmed in tears after getting into a screaming row with Jaz.
But sources say the childhood sweethearts have been broken up for a while.
The insider added: “They haven’t been together in a long time – but they still see each other and co-parent.
“Their daughter is the most important thing and they always put her first”
Jessica’s tragic EastEnders character Chantelle Atkins will die onscreen tonight at the hands of abusive husband Gray.
Jessica has always kept her boyfriend out of the limelight – only posting a video of him celebrating her pregnancy in 2016, telling followers: “Couldn’t be happier to be starting a family with my childhood sweetheart.”
She kept their split secret, but was seen having a dramatic argument on September 9 as they walked up Streatham Hill in South London.
In the video, taken on Wednesday 9 September at 10.59am, Jessica is caught shouting at her daughter’s father, known only as Jaz.
“You’re selfish. You’re selfish,” she repeats, before being heard to call him “a sneaky person”.
Jessica joined EastEnders in March last year as battered wife Chantelle.
Horrified viewers have watched in recent weeks as she tried to escape violent husband Gray.
The former Neon Jungle singer’s exit was announced earlier this month.
