Former Busted star Matt Jay not only has just entered rehab for his booze addiction, he’s also been dumped by MTV host girlfriend Emma Griffiths, according to The Sunday Mirror. Griffiths reportedly dropped the pop punk rocker in hopes of rekindling her romance with her MTV co-host Alex Zane. “Matt is gutted. He’s lost his girl and he’s battling to fight his booze addictions,” a spy revealed. “Emma wishes Matt all the best but she always knew he wasn’t the man for her. Emma has always had strong feelings for Alex.”
With the breakup of Busted, Matt Willis is pondering what to do next. “It’s just been really surreal,” he admitted. “One minute I’m in a huge band now I’m having to think about my future.” He added, “The thought of going solo is a bit scary but it’s something I’m considering. I’m doing a bit of writing as well, so who knows what will happen.”

Just after Matt Jay got the bad news that Charlie Simpson was quitting Busted, The Sunday Mirror reports he got another slap with news his MTV host girlfriend Emma Griffiths has been canoodling with her co-host and ex-boyfriend Alex Zane. “Matt will be gutted. Emma and Alex have been meeting up again. He wants her back,” a spy revealed. “Their relationship has always been very on/off, on/off. But he’s desperate for them to give it another go. Emma still has a lot of feelings for Alex, but she’s going out with Matt. She told pals she doesn’t know what to do.”

He was getting loads of female attention as usual, but unusually for him he only had eyes for Stefanie,” a source said. “It was really sweet— but then she is a total stunner.”

Busted star Matt Jay tells The Sun his drinking days are over — at least for a few years. “I’m handing in my soggy Beer Matt for now,” he said. “It’s time to screw the nut. I’ve just turned 21 and things are getting really hectic with the band. We’re going to have a real go at cracking America and it’ll be such a mad schedule that there will be no time for getting fu**ed-up. I thought my 21st was the perfect time to bow out on a high. I’ll still have a drink but the days of Beer Matt are behind me. I’m drawing a line under that part of my life.” Read more.
