The Hills Alum Stephanie Pratt Claps Back at Bullies After Split from Jonny Mitchell
Stephanie Pratt and Jonny Mitchell have ended their relationship
Stephanie Pratt and Jonny Mitchell’s relationship has come to an end.
“Jonny Mitchell and Stephanie Pratt have ended their relationship. Jonny has fond memories of the times they spent together and wishes Stephanie all the best of luck in the future,” a representative for Love Island contestant Mitchell said in a statement to PEOPLE on Tuesday.
News of the former couple’s split, which was first reported by E! News, follows a tearful image that Pratt shared of herself Monday to her Instagram Story, which she reportedly captioned, “Makeup by jm.” The photo, which has since expired, shows Pratt with her hand over her mouth and mascara tears streaming down her face.
After sharing the emotional image to social media, the MTV alum said she received backlash from critics, which she responded to Tuesday. In a series of three videos posted on her Instagram Story, Pratt clapped back at those who sent her negative messages and also thanked fans for their support.
“Hi strangers, just need to apologize for posting a photo of myself crying. Since none of you know what my life is like,” she began in the first video, which she directed “To: Nasty people.”
“None of you know that I’m not speaking to my family. None of you know that I ended up calling the police last night because I was terrified, so f— all of you,” she continued.
In her second video, Pratt said, “To my wonderful followers that sent me supportive messages, don’t worry. Tomorrow morning I will be back. I will be back strong, career-oriented, and independent — the stuff that I’ve always been.”
“And for the followers that shame me and made me feel guilty for what I had done, that’s called bullying, and you are the reason that so many children, high school students and adults are committing suicide,” she directed at the critics in her third video. “Stop bullying.”

Pratt’s admission that she is not speaking to her family comes nearly four months after she blasted her brother and fellow The Hills alum Spencer Pratt on Twitter, referring to him as one the most “poisonous” people she knows while also criticizing her parents for “living in denial.”
“I have protected people over the evil things they have done – & I’m tired of it- tired of my parents living in denial. Time 2 tell the truth,” she began.
“Will someone adopt me I need a new family,” she tweeted the next day.
It became clearer who the online rant was directed to when she responded to another comment on the social media platform.
In response to a comment from a Twitter user who wrote, “I just hope this isn’t about your brother. He has a good side too,” Pratt responded, “No he doesn’t.”
