Jack P. Shepherd has quit Twitter following weeks of controversy surrounding the 'Coronation Street' star
Jack P. Shepherd has quit Twitter.
The 'Coronation Street' actor - who stars as tearaway David Platt in the ITV soap - has shut down his account on the social networking site following weeks of controversy.
Last month he was bombarded with death threats following a number of Tweets in which he joked about a fire at a Manchester Dog's home, where approximately 50 animals are reported to have died.
However, although Corrie bosses are said to have warned the star that his behaviour would not be tolerated and threatened him with a fine for any further issues, it was not until recently that he decided to stop using the site.
His decision appears to have come just days after Sammy Wilewski - with whom Jack had a one-night-stand with while married to wife Lauren Shippey - revealed he refuses to see the child he fathered with her.
Jack - who also has two children with wife Lauren - reportedly gives Sammy money towards three-year-old Greyson's upbringing but refuses to meet him.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Jack pays child maintenance for Greyson but that's it.
"He portrays himself as a family man, yet he's able to erase one of his children from his life."
