Ashley Cain has hit back at trolls who have been questioning him over money raised for his daughter Azaylia, who sadly passed away in April at just eight months old.
Azaylia had been battling a rare and aggressive form of cancer called acute myeloid leukaemia.
Now, Ashley, 30, has been forced to speak out against trolls who have been posting questions on his social media, asking where the money raised in Azaylia's fundraiser is going, and accusing the Ex On The Beach star of deleting comments.
You can watch a clip below:
One message read: "Stop deleting comments when people ask you why you aren’t returning the 1.5 million pounds you asked for despite driving supercars continuously and always having designer products."
Ashley was having none of it and replied explaining: "Thank you for your concern. I haven’t deleted any comments. In fact today I thought it would be beneficial to actually reply back to some people.
"I actually got rid of my car to support me and my family through extra outgoings being in hospital. And I haven’t been driving round in any super cars as I’ve been too busy taking care of my daughter and recently mourning her passing.
"We don’t have any access to the money raised until the foundation is set up, so it can be used to help children and families who have to go through this traumatic time."
He continued: "I am going through the most difficult time in my life, something that no one should have to go through and my only strength is trying to do something good in this world and to make my daughter proud.
"I shouldn’t have to explain myself when I have nothing but good intentions, but as I speak and act from the heart I don’t have any trouble not deleting your comment and addressing you directly.
"And for all my clothes that you mentioned, I have actually cleared my whole house and garage and donating my clothes to a refuge for people that don’t have any.
"As long as I have enough fresh items to wear all week, that’s all I am worried about. And again, thank you for your concern. I hope you have done your bit in this world today."
When Azaylia passed away, Ashley and Safiyya confirmed the funds - which had initially been raised to help Azaylia receive treatment in Singapore - would go towards helping others who are in similar circumstances.
"She has guided us throughout this process and it only feels right that we continue to use the platform we built together to help those in similar situations," they wrote.
