Clearly in a reflective mood the recent tragic events, Yazmin shared the quote which read: ‘You’ve been through a thousand things in your life that people don’t even know about. 

‘You’ve experienced things that have shook you, changed you, broke you, built you and taught you to be stronger than you ever thought you had the ability to be. 

‘And you are who you are for all of it. So the next time someone judges you based on a small part of what they see and how they interpret that, remember who you are, remember how much you’ve overcome.’

The paragraph concluded: ‘Smile and keep walking because you don’t have a single thing to prove to anyone else. 

‘You’ve already proved so much to yourself, who muddled through storms that people didn’t even see because of how you carried yourself.’

Yazmin’s on-off boyfriend Jake was killed instantly when his car plunged down a ravine in Turkey, in a crash that left Yazmin with serious injuries after she broke her arm to escape. 

After, Jake’s mother Anita Walsh told Turkish authorities that she believed Yazmin could have played a role in her son’s death.

Jake’s mother claims her son was a good driver and he must have been distracted at the time of the crash, which occurred in the early hours of the morning while he and Yazmin were driving home from a nightclub in holiday hotspot Bodrum.

It was reported that the pair had been rowing in the moments before their speeding vehicle hit the crash barrier and rolled over, a claim denied by Yazmin. 

The accident led to a bitter fallout between Yazmin and Jake’s mother Anita and the reality star was banned from Jake’s funeral in Essex.

MailOnline recently revealed that Jake had a complicated love life and was actually dating a beauty therapist from Essex at the time of the crash.

Chloe Hennessey, 27, was invited to the funeral and posted a series of touching photos on Instagram of the couple, paying tribute to the man she will ‘love forever.’ 

A source told MailOnline: ‘Jake had a complicated love life – but Chloe was his girlfriend and they loved each other.

‘She has a close relationship with his family and together they’re helping each other get through this terribly sad time.’

MailOnline contacted Chloe for comment.
