The girl at the centre of cheat claims with One Direction star Zayn Malik boasted of partying with him at a luxury villa after he picked her out at a club.
Lauren Richardson, 19, told a fellow tourist how she was given a tour of the posh property before joining Zayn and bandmate Louis Tomlinson for a raunchy pool party.
She was one of at least three girls who joined the lads at the rented villa in the hills in Phuket.
Lauren said Zayn called her over from a crowd at the Seduction nightclub. They posed for a now-infamous picture which sparked rumours Zayn was cheating on his fiancee.
Others girls invited back to the house were said to include an American tourist who appeared smitten with Louis, 23.
The group partied into the early hours before Lauren took a taxi back to the Patong Backpacker Hostel where she bragged to fellow holidaymaker Sean Dolan about her night.

Sean told the Sunday Mirror: “She said Zayn was a lovely guy, and she’d been back to where they were staying – which was apparently incredible.
“She said each of them had a suite to themselves, and she was allowed to take a look around and even messed around in the pool.
"At the villa they had a few drinks and threw a bit of a party. Lauren got a taxi back in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
“It was the talk of the hostel and she was pretty chatty about everything.
“She said she had given Zayn her number but didn’t expect to hear from him again and had enjoyed hanging out together – it sounds like she just had a great time.”
Zayn – engaged to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards, 21 – hit out after photos of the pair circulated online, showing him with his arms around her and apparently holding hands.
Slamming suggestions he had cheated with tattooed Lauren, he tweeted: “I’m 22 years old. I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there’s a lot of jealous f**** in this world I’m sorry for what it looks like x.”
Zayn dropped out of the final three Asian dates of 1D’s On The Road Again tour this week to fly home for crisis talks with Perrie. He was seen meeting her on Friday at their north London home, before she left alone.
A spokesman for the band confirmed: “Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate. The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta.”
Meanwhile sources close to 1D claim there have been ongoing divisions between members, with Zayn understood to have had several fall-outs with Harry Styles.
Bosses are desperate for Zayn to return to the tour in time for gigs in South Africa next week. But he has told friends he simply isn’t ready to perform and “needs a break”.
A source said: “Zayn has been unhappy for some time, and needs some space to get back into it. It has caused real disagreements, particularly between Zayn and Harry who’ve become very different people.
"The strain has been getting to everyone but they need to sort out their differences or the band will implode.”
Lauren was said to have flown back to the UK from Thailand but there was no sign of her at her family home in East London today.
