They said to the publication: ‘They haven’t been together in a long time – but they still see each other and co-parent.
‘Their daughter is the most important thing and they always put her first.’
Their public dispute took place last Wednesday morning and Jessica could be heard shouting: ‘You’re selfish. You’re selfish,’ while also calling him ‘a sneaky person’.
According to the publication, the row began when the pair walked up a street in south London together.

An onlooker told the news outlet: ‘I looked out of the window because there was a huge public row going on, and I could hear a woman screaming at someone.
‘As soon as I saw her, I realised it was Chantelle from EastEnders. I recognised her straight away.
‘After they finished screaming at each other she sat down on a wall and cried and he stormed off in one direction and she walked off the other way.’

A source close to Jessica explained that the argument wasn’t a ‘big deal’ and the disagreement between them has now been resolved.
MailOnline has contacted Jessica’s representatives for comment. An EastEnders representative declined to comment to MailOnline.
Jessica has rarely publicly shared any information about the father of her child and has only posted a video of him when she celebrated her pregnancy in 2016.
