Former Premier League star Jamie O’Hara reportedly faces a jail sentence over unpaid child support to his ex-wife Danielle Lloyd.
The Sun claim the midfielder, who started his career with Tottenham before spells with Wolves and Fulham, owes the former model £27,457 in unpaid financial support for their three sons, which has left her ‘devastated and at her wits end’.
A source told The Sun : "Jamie has refused to pay a penny for the kids since she got together with her new partner Michael O’Neill in 2016.’
"What made it worse is that Jamie claimed on TV that he pays up to £15,000-a-month in support. But it was untrue."
However, Billericay Town’s O’Hara has hit back at the allegations and took to social media on Monday night to tell his side of the story.
He wrote: "I feel necessary and compelled to respond to another negative untrue story that has been sold to tarnish my reputation once again by certain individuals.
"As people are aware I was locked into a very bitter, public divorce and I have always tried to maintain a level of dignity for my children, saying this, I feel very strongly about the above story and this goes against my values and morals as a father, I would like to clarify I pay for my children, this is through a csa evaluation, and goes off of my monthly wage through the HMRC.
"There has been a dispute over money yet again with my ex partner and the csa have been nothing but helpful towards me in this frustrating time, I am fully cooperative with the csa and the dispute of money is due to a wrong financial assessment which is money I have not made, The csa and I are in full works together to get this solution sorted ASAP and the child matinance my ex partner receives is in full accordance to my monthly wage. I feel saddened it has come to this yet again.
"’I would also like to point out in September 2017 I gave my ex partner 645,000 with an additional 15,000 of a suggestion of good will on my part towards my 3 children, my 3 children are my main priority and I hope the dignity I hold for them shines through."
