It was always unlikely relationship. She was a fan who sent him revealing pictures of herself via the internet and before long they became a couple and had a baby. Defying all the barbs they said they were blissfully happy and were planning to get married. But pictures of Lee Ryan and Samantha Miller having a right old ding-dong in the street doesn't bode particularly well for their future nuptials.
The former Blue singer was seen storming out of a Mayfair hotel yesterday, followed by Miller, 26. When she managed to get him to stop Ryan, 26, appeared to shout at his wife-to-be. He was seen thrusting a fist full of bank notes at Samantha - signaling the row may have been over money. Miller became increasingly upset and seemed to be wiping tears away. The angry ex-popstar then went back to the hotel promptly followed by Samantha. She was seen leaving a short time later looking shaken.
Ryan and bandmates Antony Costa, Duncan James and Simon Webbe enjoyed hits such as All Rise and One Love along with a duet with Elton John on a cover of Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word. The group sold 3.5million records before splitting in 2005 but were last year considering reuniting. Ryan and Miller chatted on MySpace for over a year before they finally met up in Autumn 2007. In December, Miller gave birth to their son Rayn Lee Amethyst, just a year after they first met. Since they met, Ryan has left his life in London behind and is renting a 300-year-old cottage, not far from Miller's family in rural Oxfordshire.
