Alongside photos of the pair's recent London outing, Brown wrote,
"I've thought long and hard about what I want to say, I've woken up and unfortunately this wasn't just a nightmare so this is to you, Mr. Thala."
"Firstly, I'm so angry at you for doing this because you are so loved by so many people and I just wish you picked up the phone so we could've sorted this out."
The former football player earned the nickname of “Muggy Mike” during his time on the widely acclaimed show due to his instant connection with the ladies.

Explaining which Montana wrote,
"This didn't need to happen. Secondly, it annoys me that you were so misunderstood. 'Muggy Mike' was your stage name and let's face it, the ladies did fall at your feet BUT everyone had this impression of you and you were literally the opposite you were one of a kind. Mike, you were so thoughtful, caring and loyal to me and all your friends, you know some of my darkest secrets and I know yours."
and added, 'I could always rely on you to tell me when I'm being a nut job to Elliott and tell me to get off his case and I always told you to stop partying too much and getting too p*ssed. I just wish people had a tiny glimpse of what the real you was like.'
Adding up on his kind and caring character, and admitting that recently he had been in a 'dark place' she penned,
"You sent me a Christmas card in the post this year, you checked up on me every day at the beginning of this year when I was struggling myself, you really were the kindest, sweetest person and I am so devastated and crushed that I'll never get to see you again. Now I know you were in a dark place a few months back and I thought you were past it and that you were on the up."
A flurry of other stars joined in to provide their tribute to the real guy that Mike was. In fact, former Love Islanders including Amber Davies, Chris Hughes, and Dom Lever also paid homage to the late reality star on their respective social media pages.
