Lee Ryan claims he has received numerous death threats since being evicted from 'Celebrity Big Brother'
Lee Ryan has had death threats since leaving 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The Blue singer, who was branded a 'love rat' after romancing both Jasmine Waltz and Casey Batchelor during his time on the reality TV show, claims he has received a torrent of abuse from the public following his eviction from the house on Sunday (26.01.14).
He told Channel 5 News: "I've been having death threats, which is not nice. 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."
The 30-year-old singer says he never intended to lead on Jasmine and Casey, but the steamy love triangle - which has gripped viewers - spiralled out of control.
He added: "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. I understand people are upset but that's a bit too far."
Lee now hopes to move on from 'Celebrity Big Brother' and hopes fans will still listen to his music with 'All Rise' hitmakers Blue.
He said: "Now I am out of the Big Brother house, I can see it for what it is, and I hope that people will just forget and forgive and just enjoy the music that we make, because that's what we're good at.
"I'm probably not good at being on reality TV shows, but I don't think that'll stop me."
