Mel wrote: He said, “Well, you left me.” He sounded cold. I explained I hadnt, then said, “Im going to have to leave you now as this is what youve done to me”. I was pregnant. Dumped in public and made to look like a complete and utter slut and gold digger.

However, since a paternity test confirmed that Angel is his daughter, the star has stepped up to his dad duties, spending weekends with the 11-year-old.
