Jake Paul refuses to apologise for leaking Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae's baby news
| Last updated
Jake Paul has refused to apologise to Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae after leaking the birth of their baby girl prior to the couple deciding to make it public knowledge.
Paul has even suggested that the Love Island star should pay him instead for giving the baby 'more clout'.
The pair are finally due to fight in Saudi Arabia on 26 February this year.
After agreeing to reschedule, the 26-year-old has stated that his celebrity boxing rival Fury has 'no excuses'.
However, with the dig he shared on social media, he also appeared to mention the recent birth of Fury and Molly-Mae's baby daughter, which was at the time unannounced.
The post, which was shared on 27 January, read: "Fumbles has no excuses now. Baby is born. Money is massive. Immigration is not an issue."
Then on 30 January, Molly-Mae announced that their baby girl, Bambi, had been born four days prior.
Paul even commented on the photo: "Just in time to watch your dad get knocked out."
While hosting a Q&A on Instagram, he was asked by a fan if he should apologise for leaking the birth of the celebrity couple's first born.
Paul then responded by saying: "No she should pay me for giving that baby more clout."
TV personality, Piers Morgan, recently interviewed Fury on TalkTV and questioned his opinion on Paul announcing his child's birth before they'd had chance to do so.
To which Fury replied: "At the end of the day, all Jake Paul can do from wherever he is in this world is speculate, and that's all that was - speculation. Nothing is ever true unless you hear it from me and Molly. It's part and parcel, it's what we have to do."
Fury said that the verbal digs on social media are all part of the build up to a fight, trying to psych the other boxer out with mental tactics.
But he also added that Paul's bravado won't be able to save him in the ring, though.
The boxer said: "It comes with the entertainment business, that's what we're in, and me and Jake Paul are great dance partners, and I've enjoyed the build up so far, it's going to get a lot more heated, and I can't wait."
"Social media can't save Jake Paul, his mouth can't save him, it comes down to fighting."
Since then, Paul has taken to Twitter to have yet more digs at his opponent Fury, with the most recent being shared yesterday (3 February).
He tweeted: "Tommy Fury is scared. Told my team he can’t make the kick-off press conference next week in Saudi Arabia because he needs more time to train. Thought you said you wouldn’t even have to train to fight me? You and your papa scared. #MikePerry"
