Lee Ryan Hits Back: 'The Claims I'm Gay Don't Faze Me'
Blue singer reacts to ex-lover Jasmine Waltz's comments that he cheated on her with a man...
Following the Celebrity Big Brother couple's rather public split earlier this month, Waltz urged the Blue singer to "admit" he was gay, before tweeting: "Wish this was a joke. Living a lie and dragging other ppl into your life is selfish and disgusting."
The All Rise singer has chosen not to hit back at Jasmine's comments, but has since taken to Twitter to write: "I've been asked by a few people why I haven't reacted over recent claims & my answer is this..
"The claims that I am gay don't faze me. I don't care if people think I'm gay, why would I care? I would be proud. Sexuality doesn't need to be defended or justified."
He went on: "In 2014 when individual sexuality is being celebrated, it's odd that Twitter trolls and bullies focus on sexuality in a derogatory way.
"We have created change as a society, a really brilliant change and to those people who have not yet caught up to 2014 (for whatever reason) please just open your minds and begin to think #equal."
Ryan concluded: "Everyone is allowed to be individual."
