Lee Ryan’s love child woes

Blue star Lee Ryan has opened up about his much publicised love child drama.

The singer, who has a young son Rayn with girlfriend Samantha Miller, was shocked in 2009 when a paternity test confirmed that he also had a daughter from his relationship with ex Jessica Keevil. Ryan immediately arranged child support payments for the girl, named Belle, but still came under fire in the media for being a bad father.

Ryan told the Daily Mirror: “I don’t see her as much because I’ve got my own son.

“People can say what they want about me and I don’t give a s***. They can go swing. But when it comes to my children and I’m being called a bad father... really, it wasn’t my choice to have the girl, not that I’m shunting any responsibility.

“I haven’t quite had the chance to bond with Belle yet, and I’m not gonna take responsibility for that yet. I’ve paid for her, and I have seen her.”

He added: “I haven’t done anything wrong and I’m not a bad bloke. I’ll do what I’ve got to do in my own career and my own life. For my own happiness. I’m not gonna be bent over a barrel and told what to do.”
