Jack Fincham has taken to Instagram to hit out at his ex Casey Ranger after she accused him of being an absent father to their daughter Blossom.

The former couple have shared a very public war of words on Instagram, each posting lengthy statements, with Casey arguing that Jack “didn’t want to be involved” during her pregnancy and had used Blossom for career gain when he lined up a TV show called Jack the Dad.

She went on to say that Jack had not spent time with their daughter and that he’d stopped turning up to their weekly visits with no explanation, had failed to buy her Christmas presents and “has continuously let her down and proved that he is not worthy of being part of my daughter’s life.”

Jack responded by posting a number of photographs of toys from 20 December 2020, which Casey claims had actually been presents from Jack’s mother and not him.

Things have been tense between the former couple from the very start, with Casey infuriated that Jack was playing the doting father on social media while, she said, choosing not to be on her birth certificate and only sporadically paying child support.

Jack has responded by claiming Casey is “bitter because a one night stand didn’t work out” and wrote, “Do you know what [the accusations] does to someone’s mental health? No wonder why people are dropping like flies due to suicide.”

Back in August, Casey, who works in the NHS, spoke out about her relationship with Jack, posting a quote on Instagram that read, ‘The job of two is done by one, the job of two is done by mum.”

"As I write this post with an open heart I can’t help but feel a lot of anxiety & discomfort surrounding my choice to speak up on such a private matter. Having a part of my life played out so publicly is beyond difficult to deal with - I keep my personal life private & I never acknowledge any rumours/speculation surrounding private matters,” she said.

"However, it’s been testing at times & there have been a couple of occasions where I’ve had no choice but to address the lies being told that have involved my daughter. Before posting this, I have spoken with my solicitor so I’m fully aware of what can and can’t be said. Due to legal reasons, I’m very restricted."
