Labelling ex-boyfriend Lee Ryan as someone who has ‘mental problems’, Celebrity Big Brother star Jasmine Waltz thinks there is something else the Blue singer is not being forthcoming about.
Speaking to New! Jasmine said the singer, who has just gone into rehab, is an ‘emotional disaster’ with ‘gay tendencies’.
The 31-year-old American beauty and Lee, 30, embarked on an intense whirlwind romance after meeting in the Celebrity Big Brother house in January.
Not surprised: Jasmine Waltz has said she thinks ex-boyfriend Lee Ryan was in need of his stint in rehab
In the starkly honest interview with New! Jasmine admits she is not at all surprised that Lee has ended up in rehab:
‘I said that he needed mental help, like a psychologist or therapist, the ups and downs and the binge drinking. He had a lot of demons and no way of coping.’
Lee was arrested in the early hours of April 11 for alleged drink driving and cocaine possession and has since entered into rehab clinic, The Priory.
He is due to appear before Magistrates on May 2 to face sentencing.

Jasmine recalls a time when they were on holiday together in Thailand where her former flame left her in a terrifying situation:
‘He left me downtown by myself with no phone and no money. He just walked away because he was drunk. That was one of the scariest moments of my life.’
‘There were times when I questioned whether this was a stable person’ Jasmine said.
On the allegations that Lee cheated on her with a man Jasmine confirmed to New!: ‘that’s what she heard’ but was quick to point out it was most definitely not Blue bandmate Duncan James.
Jasmine went on to imply that Lee was bisexual, saying although he admitted to ‘experimenting’ she didn’t think it meant ‘full-on sleeping with multiple men’.

When pressed on the ‘mutiple men’ Jasmine said: ‘I think there were quite a few. And then when I left the UK and found out he’d been making advances towards men again, I’d just had enough. I had no idea it was as serious, or out of control, as it was’.
‘He definitely has gay tendencies’
Lee took to Twitter after the pair split on April 9 to speak about his sexuality:
‘I’ve been asked by a few people why I haven’t reacted over recent claims & my answer is this.. ‘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.’
