Lee Ryan Gets Celebrity Big Brother Death Threats
However, Blue star insists he's been misunderstood over love triangle...
The Blue star was involved in a love triangle with Casey Batchelor and Jasmine Waltz - and has clearly ruffled a few feathers in the outside world.
"I've been having death threats," he told Channel 5 News. "They've been saying pretty bad things - like threatening me with my life. I've had one person saying if I see you I'm gonna stab you, I'm gonna like axe you in the head."
"I mean I understand people are upset but to threaten me with my life. This is just ridiculous. I mean I haven't hurt anyone in a malicious way, I've just got myself into a situation that I couldn’t really get out of."
And the 30-year-old singer explained just how he'd got himself into such a sticky situation.
"I got butterflies with Jasmine and she felt the same way and I know she did. But I was friends with Casey and I missed her friendship when we wasn't being friends, and I think that's what's so confusing for people to see."
"But if you understand that you're stuck in a house with people there's nowhere to go, and I did try to explain to her so many times that I just wanted to be her friend, and she was like, yeah I know, yeah I understand, but can we just have a cuddle."
"So I was like, oh we're just having a cuddle as friends."
But rather than pin the blame entirely on glamour model Casey, he did man up enough to admit his part in the situation.
"I think we're just gonna hopefully meet up, I think I've got an apology to make. [to Jasmine]. But at the same time, she's not my girlfriend, nor is Casey."
"I've always said that, I'm sorry if I've come across as a love rat but I am single and I did try my hardest to explain the situation, but just failed miserably and that's my fault that I wasn't strong enough to go 'no, stop it'."
He also insisted that he did not regret going into the house - despite briefly becoming public enemy number one.
"You know I'm not a bad person and I refuse to be told that I'm a bad person because I'm not. I haven't killed anyone, I haven't said anything racist, I haven't said anything sexist, or homophobic."
"You know, I'm the most open person and my problem is I wear my heart on my sleeve."
Lee left the house in a surprise eviction on Sunday night.
