Parramatta rugby league star Kieran Foran and his former partner Rebecca Pope have demanded an apology and retraction from Jackie Henderson after the KIIS FM radio presenter insinuated he was not the father of one of his children during her radio program.
Foran, who recently split with Pope and is currently in a rehabilitation clinic after reportedly overdosing on prescription medication, issued a statement to the Nine Network through his legal representatives.
“Statements were made by Jackie O suggesting that our client’s child was not his,” it read.
“This statement gave imputations that the former partner of our client committed adultery during their relationship.
“That imputation is defamatory, completely false, untrue and lacking any merit.
“We are instructed to request that you submit a clear apology and retraction to Mr Kieran Foran and Ms Rebecca Pope.”
The pair expected the apology to occur on Friday morning on the Kyle and Jackie O Show, The Nine Network reported.
