US model Jasmine Waltz says her ex-boyfriend singer Lee Ryan has “gay tendencies”.

She told New magazine: “He’s slept with men. Does that make him bisexual?

“He definitely has gay tendencies. For him to say he’s not gay but he’s slept with multiple men – is he delusional?”

The couple got together following their January appearance on Celebrity Big Brother.

Ryan generated headlines after revealing he had “experimented” with men in the past, but the Blue singer added “I would never be in a relationship with a man though.”

Waltz announced she and Ryan had separated earlier this month, claiming that Ryan “cheated” on her with a man.

In response, Ryan tweeted: “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.

“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.”

He finished it off saying: “Everyone is allowed to be individual.”

The 30-year-old has since said he’s checking himself into rehab, having been arrested for drink-driving and possession of cocaine.
