Megan Barton-Hanson appears to be very excited about her plans to move to Los Angeles with her friend Lottie Moss. The star says that it will be ‘good’ for them to get away from London.
The 28 year-old former Love Island contestant elaborated on her 24 year-old model friend’s recent rehabilitation stint for cocaine addiction. She said that Lottie means to recover fully by indulging in a ‘healthy lifestyle’ while the two live together in the City Of Angels.
In an exclusive interview with MailOnline at the Social Ikon launch party, Megan Barton-Hanson said that she feels like the two will have a great time together. And regardless of being ‘blonde, beautiful and with big t**s’, the two possess ‘completely different mindsets’.
The two models grabbed the limelight when they made a scintillating appearance with their racy OnlyFans photoshoot. And they have been pretty close since then.
‘So I’m going to LA with Lottie. We’ve hung out a few times and she’s just come out of rehab so we really just wanna go there, be healthy, do yoga.
‘Everyone in LA is like so well related to their fitness and I just think it would be good to get away from London for a bit, work on our fitness, get some sunshine, I want to go to Coachella, both weeks of Coachella and just a change of scenery.
‘I love Vegas so much and I just love America so why not? It’s been ages since I went there as well. I used to go every year before Love Island so yeah it will be nice to go back and see some old friends.’
When asked about her friendship with Lottie Moss, Megan Barton-Hanson said that they have had a couple chance encounters before. But the two share immense support for one another, and that is what keeps them close.
‘The whole society is that women should compete, and be like, “Oh, you two are both blonde, big t**s, beautiful, you’re in competition,” but I feel like me and Lottie are of a completely different mindset.
‘Women supporting women, we really bonded over that and just girls supporting girls, she’s fit, I’m fit, we’re independent women, why not?’
The influencer also said that it was her ‘dream’ to ‘crack’ the American market. She is still not sure if moving to Los Angeles is a long term plan, but she hopes that as she stars in the country’s own version of Love Island, coshe couldave in great exposure.
‘I mean fingers crossed there will be an American man who will marry me but if not holidays are fine,’ the newly-single star joked.
In addition, Megan Barton-Hanson opened up about being in therapy to seek advice about her ‘relationships’. The model has another therapist that she speaks to about her career.
‘I have a few therapists for different reasons, so I have one that speaks to me about generic whatever, one that I speak to about relationships, one that I speak to about work.
‘I just have a few and I handpick, so one’s a male one’s a female. And I think it’s healthy to have. I don’t think there should be any shame in it, it’s like going to the gym.
‘You wouldn’t do five crunches in the gym and be like, “Ooh yeah, I’ve got a six pack,” you’ve got to constantly work at it and that’s the same to me with therapy.’
Megan went on to elaborate on her period of working as a stripper before rising to fame on the ITV2 reality show. The former made her confident enough to ‘love herself’ and discover her inner secure self.
‘I honestly think I’m not promoting quitting college and being a stripper but I think working in the sex industry definitely gave me that confidence.
‘Like you’re working alongside women of all different races, ages, body shapes and they’re all so beautiful and confident.
‘Seeing women of different ages being so body confident, I was like, “I need to be like that.” The most attractive thing is confidence, so working in that industry taught me to love myself.’
In March, Lottie Moss announced that the two friends are moving together in Los Angeles to create more content for her OnlyFans account.
‘I need cheering up. I’m having a very stressful time at the moment. And I’m moving to LA soon – in two weeks.
‘I’m moving to get more content. Lots more people do OnlyFans out there. London just isn’t for me. I’m moving with Megan Barton-Hanson and we’re going to live in the same apartment and shoot content together. It’s going to be so hot.’
Detailing her plans, she continued:
‘I’m going to do more variations, more girl on girl. I’m not sure if I would do anything more intense but definitely more girl on girl like kissing and stuff.’
This latest update came after Megan and her on/off boyfriend James Lock broke up once again.
In October last year, the couple officially announced their steamy relationship on Instagram. It was after a meeting on Celebrity Ex On The Beach. However, their romance only lasted for two brief months and they went their separate ways after Christmas.
Earlier this month, the pair rekindled the flames again when 35 year-old TOWIE star James gifted Megan a cake shaped like her breasts.
Megan has expressed her dismay over their tumultuous relationship. But apparently, the pals think that their ‘weird connection’ means this may not be the end.
A source told OK! magazine:
‘She knows it’s for the best and they’ve realised the best thing for them to do is to call it a day.
‘But friends of the couple said that they have this weird connection and they can’t keep away from each other, so they wouldn’t be surprised if they got back together.’
