A representative for Lee Ryan has defended the British pop star after he was accused of failing to keep up with maintenance payments for his lovechild - revealing the singer "has not been earning much money" recently.

The Blue star is engaged to current partner Samantha Miller, the mother of his young son Rayn, but in 2009 he was shocked to discover he also fathered a daughter with ex-girlfriend Jessica Keevil. A DNA test proved Ryan's paternity and he vowed to "definitely be a part of" little Bluebelle's life, while also helping her mother out with maintenance payments.

Keevil's mother, Janet Stowell, has claimed Ryan has failed to keep up with the installments and barely sees the little girl, telling Britain's Sunday Mirror, "Lee's been a nightmare. Jess has had to battle to bring their daughter up all by herself. It's as if his own child is an inconvenience to him. Every time we ask for help he ignores us."

But a spokesman for Ryan is adamant the singer is not shirking his responsibilities, and has been struggling financially in recent months. The rep says, "Lee has being paying maintenance since he found out Bluebelle was his child. It has not been a regular amount because he has not been earning much money. Lee transferred money into Jessica's account only last week. He takes his role as father of Bluebelle very seriously."

I feel sorry for Mr Ryan for having a relationship with Miss J Stowell/Keevil of ME12JR which was obviously planned from the very start. This family have lived off benefits for as long as Ive known them and will lie and manipulate the authorities to get their own way. Especially for the person who paid the bills for Bluebelle,s first 18 months. If you want an insight into this Dysfunctional family then log on to Channel 4 "Masters and Servants" this was followed by an interview on morning television hosted by Natasha Kaplinski and Eamon Holmes it puts things into perspective. Mr Ryan you have my sympathy as you will not be rid of this family until Bluebelle's 16th birthday when you can stop paying, until then they will fleece you so they can drive around in their BMW 4x4.
