The comedian and professional dancer were pictured in a passionate embrace during a night out in London last week (03Oct18) on what was actually Rebecca’s birthday. Following the story going public, both Seann and Katya apologised, labelling the incident a “drunken” mistake, but that wasn’t enough for Rebecca, who released a blistering statement on Monday night insisting she’s “no victim”. The actress, who had been dating Seann for the past five years, also revealed she has yet to receive any kind of apology from her now ex-boyfriend. “My name is Rebecca Humphries and I am not a victim,” she began her statement. “It’s incredibly good of Sean and Katya to apologise in the media. I have received nothing, other than the support of my family, friends and a host of strangers on the internet who all wanted to make sure I was OK.” Rebecca revealed she was “alone at home” on her birthday when she got a text from Seann at 10pm saying he was going for a drink with Katya. “We spoke and I told him, not for the first time, that his actions over the past three weeks had led me to believe something inappropriate was going on,” she recalled. “He aggressively, and repeatedly, called me a psycho / nuts / mental. As he has done countless times throughout our relationship when I’ve questioned his inappropriate, hurtful behaviour.” However, Rebecca added the cheating scandal “has served to remind me that I am a strong, capable person who is now free; and no victim. I have a voice and will use it by saying this to any woman out there who deep down feels worthless and trapped with a man they love.” “It’s important also to recognise that in these situations those who hold power over you are insecure and fragile, and their need for control comes from a place of vulnerability. I think it certainly does in Sean’s case.” Rebecca concluded her statement by writing: “Despite everything, I hope he gets what he wants from this. I’m not sorry I took the cat though.”
