Love Island's Kaz Crossley was imprisoned with 6-month-old baby

Kaz Crossley has revealed she was locked up in an Abu Dhabi jail cell with a mother and her six-month-old baby.

The reality star, 28, was detained at Abu Dhabi airport in transit for a flight to Thailand in February before being transported to jail.

Kaz was released from jail after a week and that same month took to social media to comment on a video showing her snorting a white substance at a party in the United Arab Emirates.

It was this video – which Kaz said was filmed by her ex-boyfriend – that led to her arrest.

Speaking this week, Kaz shared details about her time behind bars, saying the woman she shared her cell with had been locked up for having a baby out of wedlock.

According to Kaz, the woman was jailed just two days after having her baby and by the time Kaz met the woman, she had been imprisoned for six whole months.

Kaz shared: ‘She was in hospital for, I think, two days and the police came into the jail and put her in handcuffs and she just two days [ago had a] caesarean.

‘And [they] put her in jail with the baby. And she had been in there for six months when I came in.’

Kaz became emotional while speaking on the Saving Grace podcast and recalled taking the baby into her own arms at one point.

‘Me being in the lowest point, probably of my whole life, and holding this baby,’ the former Love Island star reflected.

Addressing the video back in February, Kaz told fans: ‘I feel like I owe it to my followers and I owe it to myself to get closure about this situation because it’s been a good few years and I’m ready to move forward now.’

She went on: ‘In 2020, I was in Dubai and I was filmed – it was me in the video, no one forced me to do that – it was a time in my life where I definitely didn’t love myself at all probably and this is reflected in what I was doing to my body and who I surrounded myself with. 

‘A year later, it then got leaked and then more recently, I was on my way to Thailand and had an amazing job offer.’ 

Kaz revealed that she had been offered her ‘dream job’ in Thailand and didn’t think about the transit in Abu Dhabi being an issue. 

‘I was then detained in Abu Dhabi and kept in custody from Monday through to Friday which is when they released me,’ she went on. 

‘I was very accepting of the situation for whatever was going to happen to me. 

‘I take full accountability, I did not lie and I said that was me in the video and I explained the situation, it was a long time ago etc.’ 

She added: ‘The video wasn’t taken by my friend, it was taken by an ex who I was with… in secret for a year. Didn’t know he had this video and then when we’ve broken up, that’s when he decided to leak it online.’ has reached out to Kaz for comment.
