From out of nowhere, a series of intimate underwear shots were posted on Jake McLean's account alongside some pretty harsh words (19 September).
Pictures of Celebrity Big Brother star Lauren in provocative poses were uploaded.
The accompanying message read: "Ahhhh happy birthday to the biggest let down I no @LaurenGoodger keep it up girl your doing great #tramp."
The pictures and comments were later deleted and we cannot rule out the possibility that Jake's account might have been hacked.
Former TOWIE star Lauren, meanwhile, kept her cool and responded with dignity.
She replied: "Sorry @mcleanjake if I've upset you, you are a very important person in my life and always will be. #real."
Lauren and Jake got together in October 2012 after they were introduced by mutual friends while she was training for Dancing On Ice. They split a year later.

During her time in the CBB house, Lauren caused controversy when she told her housemates about Jake's criminal past as an armed robber and his time spent in jail.
She also admitted she was still in love with him, despite flirting on camera with fellow contestant Ricci Guarnaccio.
Lauren and Jake hit the headlines in July when a six-second video of the couple was released, which showed Lauren performing a sex act on her ex-boyfriend.
We hope the tweet didn't spoil Lauren's birthday celebrations.
