Heartbroken Kieran Hayler cries as he says he hasn’t seen his kids 'for six months'

Devastated Kieran Hayler cried in a heartbreaking video on social media as he claimed he hasn’t seen his kids “for six months”.

The 36-year-old shares son Jett, 9, and daughter Bunny, 8, with ex-wife Katie Price and son Apollo Phoenix with fiancée Michelle Penticost. On Sunday, the dad-of-three uploaded a candid video on Instagram as he marked his first Father’s Day “without all of my kids”.

Visibly upset, Kieran spoke to the camera as he paid tribute to all of the other parents who were without their children on Father’s Day, and confessed he was exhausted after “fighting the system”.

“It’s the first Father’s Day without all of my children. This is a message not just about me but all those dads out there and mums that have been dads that haven’t got their children this Father’s Day,” he said, while standing in his garden.

“It’s tough. I dropped my children off on a Friday and expected them to be returned on a Monday and I haven’t seen them for almost six months. Not properly,” Kieran continued.

Kieran then went on to declare that “the system was built for mums” as he tearfully explained he hasn’t seen his two children for a considerable amount of time so far this year.

“I’ve seen them here and there but not properly. False allegations here, false allegations there, ‘he’s this and he’s that, their household is this and their household is that,” he emotionally explained.

Kieran said he understood why “dads give up the fight” when trying to get access to their children, and railed against the “system”, which he claimed was biased.

“The system is built for the mum and for the mother’s, it’s not built for the dads and it doesn’t matter how strong you’ve been or how you’ve been there through absolutely everything, including agony, heartbreak and pain,” Kieran explained.

“You’re still there for the kids no matter what is going on on the other side, you’re still there.

“When it comes down to it the system is built for mums and that is a really sad scenario,” he added.

He said he had been in touch with Fathers For Justice and was “looking forward to the next steps with them”, as he said he had been a victim of “parental alienation”.

“It doesn’t matter how hard you fight, they always come back for me and that’s what parental alienation is,” he stated.

Kieran apologised to his fans and followers, but insisted he was going to fight for “what I think is right and for the truth”.

The dad-of-three was married to Katie Price for five years from 2013 prior to their split in 2018. Kieran and the glamour model welcomed son Jett and daughter Bunny into the world during their time together.

The former couple's divorce was finalised in 2021.

Kieran is currently engaged to Michelle Penticost, who he shares son Apollo with.
