The ex-TOWIE star raised eyebrows when she shared an image to social media showing herself on a night out in Dubai – the same place where former boyfriend Mark was celebrating with Michelle.
But a source has told The Mirror that Lauren was most definitely NOT following her ex and his new woman; she was simply enjoying a last minute trip abroad with her on-again boyfriend Jake McLean.
"Lauren and Jake have been back together for a few weeks now. They have been on date nights in London and Essex and things were heating up so much they decided to go on a last minute holiday," said the source.
"She says it was just coincidence that it happened to be where Mark and Michelle were on honeymoon."
Lauren wasn't even in Dubai the whole time, she was there for a short while before travelling to Abu Dhabi, added the insider.
There's been plenty of focus on Lauren's holiday because of Mark's rant on Twitter earlier this week, when he told Lauren it was embarrassing that she kept talking about him and Michelle in interviews.
Lauren, however, hit back via a rep, saying she had moved on, was in a new relationship and only ever spoke about them to clarify "ridiculous rumours", such as the suggestion Mark's best friend Arg had been put on high alert in case she tried to crash the wedding.
Her rep didn't identity Lauren's new man in the statement, but Lauren later posted a photo to Instagram showing ex-Jake signing a bill at their hotel.
Lauren split from Jake in 2013.
