Jeremy slammed trolls for claiming he doesn’t care about the two-year-old in an exclusive interview with MailOnline.
The dad insisted: ‘I’m not removing myself and forgetting about having a son. I’m a very loving father.’
He also revealed that he’s found it difficult to be accepted back into society after being imprisoned for five weeks in 2017.
Jeremy admitted he agreed to take a step back from Caben to protect him, and his unborn daughter has become his ‘main focus.’
Speaking out: Jeremy recently said ‘a very loving father’ and insisted he’s ‘not removing myself and forgetting about having a son’ after trolls slammed him over his first son Caben-Albi
He said: ‘A lot of people say I don’t care about my child because I’m moving on but what options was I left with? I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t.
‘People say to me “Why are you acting like you have just one child?” But there’s a time and a place.
‘Any one that has half a brain cell needs to understand the reason I am not part of Caben’s life is because not every situation can be fixed.
‘I protect my son as much as I can. It’s not neglecting, it’s protecting. I’m a very loving father. This is better for Caben.
‘My priority is my baby girl because it’s in my control – I have rights over that. My main focus is my girl.

‘I’ve done all the things I needed to do in order to get where I am now. I’ve got an amazing job and I’ve moved myself away from certain things.’
Jeremy credited Hollyoaks actress Stephanie, 26, for her hard work as a mother but admitted he struggled to cope when her ex Owen Warner, 20, formed a close bond with Caben.
He said: ‘I can’t speak about it much for legal reasons, but Steph is doing a great job. She’s doing really well and I know she’s a good mum.
‘But you can imagine how hard it was for me. Some 20-year-old being called dad in her last relationship. I thought the whole thing was really distasteful.’
Priorities: Jeremy has now said that his unborn daughter has become his ‘main focus’
In August 2017, Jeremy was found guilty of battering Stephanie in a drug-fuelled rage.
He was sentenced to 20 weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months – but was later jailed for breaching his community order by flying to Turkey for a hair transplant.
Jeremy says he’s living proof a leopard can change its spots after getting himself back on the straight and narrow the last two years.
He explained: ‘Going to prison was a massive wake up call. I had to sit myself down and say “This is it now”.

‘It was hard because in this country people don’t accept rehabilitation well. People need to believe that you can change.
‘A leopard never changes his spots isn’t true – I have proven that I have rehabilitated. I hope over a two year period I’ve shown that. I was an embarrassment to myself. I acted like a f**king d**khead.’
The former Celebrity Big Brother star suffered the devastating loss of his mother, brother and sister within months of each other when he was a teenager and his dad lost his battle with cancer in 2017.

He said his ‘bad boy’ image was just a persona he adopted as he fell down a dangerous path of drink and drug taking.
Jeremy continued: ‘My dad always told me where there’s drink, there’s trouble.
‘People don’t realise when you have depression and a mental illness that you don’t like yourself as a person.
‘Especially when you don’t have your parents around saying what’s right or wrong. But I can’t change the past.

‘I was trying to be a bad boy but really I’m not. I was a virgin until I was 18! I’m a well brought up man, I just got lost down that path.’
Jeremy has managed to turn his life around by becoming director of company Hair of Istanbul.
He’s become close pals with CEO M Faith Akendir and together they plan to expand the hair transplant business across the globe.
