Zoe has also shared photos of Connor on TikTok.

Zoe Laverne has reached out to her former friend Connor Joyce on social media, despite insisting that they were no longer in contact.

In case you didn't know, footage of the Zoe, 19, kissing 13-year-old Connor emerged on the internet and it was obviously met with backlash. The TikTok star admitted to having "caught feelings" for Connor, despite the fact that he is a minor, after they became close friends during a "dark" time in their lives. Many called for her to be arrested and jailed for "grooming" Connor, and Zoe later deleted her Instagram account.

When she returned, Zoe confirmed that she is no longer in contact with Connor after both of their parents cut their communication. However, Zoe has now tried to contact Connor on TikTok and Instagram.

In screenshots captured by Def Noodles, Zoe commented on Connor's Instagram Live video. She wrote: "Hi Connor… I miss you." In another message, she added: "I hope you're doing well. Miss you lots!" Once fans saw her comments, they angrily urged her to leave Connor alone, with one user commenting: "ZOE LEAVE THIS POOR BOY ALONE."

Zoe also shared photos of Connor, as well as her other friends, on TikTok. The video montage set to Coldplay's 'Yellow' was captioned: "My happiness and two of them are gone." Connor also included Zoe a TikTok video set to the same track.

This comes after Zoe reportedly checked herself into hospital following the whole scandal. Zoe said she would be getting help in a post from her fandom account, which she regularly posts on.

She said: "I'm checking myself into hospital for a while. I don't know when I'll be out etc. I'm trying to find help before it's too late. I love you. Goodbye for now."
