"Asked him for a chat in private because I wanted to confront him and it got heated and security had to split us up, heartbroken but s*** happens man."
Earlier today, the Mirror Online exclusively revealed that Sherif was kicked off the show straight after making a "silly mistake".
According to our TV source, Sherif knew "immediately" that this was a leaving matter. It's unclear whether other Islanders were involved.
However, his mistake wasn't serious enough to warrant police involvement.
"Sherif made a silly mistake and was immediately summoned to the Beach Hut – it wasn't a criminal matter and he was spoken to and agreed to leave," a Love Island insider told us.
"Sherif knew he had to leave immediately after being called to the Beach Hut.
"No security were involved."
As yet, Sherif's family have not been told why he's been kicked out of the villa.
They said in an Instagram statement that he'll appear in tonight's show.
In a statement, Sherif admitted his "poor judgement" led to him leaving the villa.
"In a case of poor judgement, I broke the villa rules and as a result agreed with the producers that it was best for me to leave the villa," he said.
"I regret that I didn't conduct myself in the right way and, as a 20 year old guy, it’s something I know I will take on board and learn from.
"I really enjoyed my time in the villa and look forward to catching up with everyone on the outside."
*Love Island airs tomorrow at 9pm on ITV2
