KIIS apologise to Kieran Foran

Staff Writer

Parrammatta captain Keiran Foran has threatened legal action against KIIS 106.5 over claims allegedly aired on KIIS that he is not the father of his second child.

Foran is currently on indefinite leave from Parramatta and is in a rehabilitation facility following the recent breakdown of his long-term relationship.

It is alleged that KIIS 106.5 referred to rumours about the child’s paternity on the Kyle & Jackie O Show last week.

McGirr Lawyers, acting for Foran, have reportedly sent a letter to ARN requesting an apology air on todays Breakfast show. The letter, according to the Nine Network, says:

Kieran Foran“Statements were made by Jackie O suggesting our client’s child is not his … This statement gave imputations that the former partner of our client committed adultery during their relationship. That imputation is defamatory, completely false, untrue, and lacking any merit.

“We are instructed to request that you submit a clear apology and retraction to Mr Kieran Foran and Ms Rebecca Pope.”

KIIS 106.5 has responded noting that they have not received any letter at this time but have apologised for any offense.

“It has been reported in other media that legal action has been taken against KIIS 1065 regarding comments made on air. As of 9pm today KIIS 1065 has not sighted any legal letter.

Jackie and the KIIS team are mortified that anything said has caused hurt to Kieran Foran and his family at such a difficult time. We apologise unreservedly for this and wish them all the best.”
