The former Girls Aloud singer posted a similar statement on her social media accounts and later hit back at rumors that her mother Joan Callaghan played a part in their breakup. “I hate responding to stuff esp at such difficult times but I cannot sit here and listen to such nasty, false articles regarding my mam. I don’t know why they involve her in stories about me. I can assure you she has absolutely nothing to do with any of it. I am a grown woman who is capable of dealing with my own life. She is a soft and kind woman who doesn’t deserve to be dragged into something that has nothing whatsoever to do with her,” she wrote on Twitter.
