Katie Tweeted that Kieran and Jane had been having a 'full-blown sexual affair' yesterday
Katie, 35, accused her third hubby Kieran, 27, of cheating with 49-year-old Jane on Twitter yesterday but Derrick Pountney has played down their infidelity.
‘A lot of this drama has been a storm in a teacup and there’s a lot of misunderstandings to sort out. There has not been a “full blown” affair going on, it was more like a drunken kiss,’ says Derrick, 51.
‘Will she and Kieran break up, or could they get back together? I don’t really know. As for Jane and I working things out… again, I don’t know.’
Katie has been friends with Jane for 20 years and both she and Derrick were at her Bahamas wedding to Kieran in January 2013, which took place after a two-month romance
Kieran and mum-of-four Katie – who’s six months pregnant with their second child – were pictured arriving at Jane and Derrick‘s Sussex home for an emotional meeting yesterday.
Stripper Kieran left the house after just 30 minutes but Katie stayed for another three hours.
‘We are good friends of Katie and Kieran‘s. This “affair” has not really happened like it has been portrayed. I’ve known about it for about four weeks myself,’ says Derrick.
‘There were tears shed here today, all sorts went on. But Katie and Jane
talked, they have been friends a long time and they are okay now. Everyone is just about on speaking terms now.’
Kieran and Katie‘s friend Jane Pountney, who she alleges Kieran cheated with, are yet to comment. We will update you when we receive more information.
On Friday 9 May Derrick Pountney then said in a
statement: ‘It is true that Jane and Kieran Hayler had an affair. This
is something that Jane deeply regrets and we will not provide any more
details about it. It is true that Kate found out about this affair on
Wednesday 7 March 2014.
‘Current reports regarding this being “a
storm in a teacup” and the affair being a “drunken kiss” do not
accurately reflect the situation. Those remarks should not be used to
undermine Kate’s account which we accept is accurate.’
