Lauryn Goodman’s petition accusing Kyle Walker of ‘bullying’ his son, 1, signed by over a thousand shocked fans
LAURYN Goodman's petition accusing Kyle Walker of "bullying" his one-year-old son Kairo has been signed by over a thousand shocked fans.
The 30-year-old star was left heartbroken at the weekend when he cruelly showed off his personalised football boots that excluded their baby.
The footballer sparked backlash when he showed off the shoes on Instagram, emblazoning his other three children's names and dates of birth on the side.
In response, Lauryn targeted brand Puma in a petition – urging them to stop endorsing Kyle after they provided him with the boots.
The page's description reads: "My son Kairo Walker, a BABY OF 13 MONTHS OLD has been the subject of online bullying from an instagram post made from his 'father' Kyle Walker. Endorsed by the brand Puma (Puma Football.)"
Providing the brand's email address, she called for Puma to remove the photo of the boots from all of their social media pages, and issue a public statement of apology to Kairo, herself, and "anyone affected from this triggering outlandish callous actions endorsed by yourselves".
She added: "For the future, if Kyle wishes to have his sons he either has them ALL or NONE. It is simple."
At the time of writing, 1,346 concerned fans have shown their support for the cause by signing, with Lauryn admitting her fear for Kairo's mental health in the description.
Lauryn continued: "Kairo's father's latest post (@kylewalker2) has not only absolutely shocked me but shocked everyone to the core. Things posted on the internet are there forever and Kairo has been abused by him and his partner for far too long.
"He is 1 years old. He is an INNOCENT baby. No matter anyone's opinion on me, Kairo has done NOTHING & he does not deserve any of this let alone publicly.
"I speak for the many women that are silenced. Believe me when I say there are SO many more women in my situation. More than you could EVER imagine and a lot of people have dm'd me finding comfort in me not being silenced. They praise me for standing my own ground and not hiding Kairo. Why should he be hidden? To give his father an easy life? NEVER.
"There is keeping him private for his own protection (which is needed after the lies and stories his partner sold) and then there is ignoring his existence. Your own flesh and blood, Kyle. The latter will never happen – he is not going anywhere."
Lauryn also accused Puma of "ignoring" all of the complaints about the matter, adding: "I know charities on behalf of bullying children have been in contact with them."
She called the handling of the situation a "damn right disgrace".
Her sister Chloe previously lashed out at Kyle in a passionate video message, calling his actions "vile" and "disgraceful".
Lauryn gave birth to her and Kyle's son last April, with the pair embroiled in a fling in 2019 while he was briefly separated from partner Annie Kilner.
At the weekend, Manchester City's Kyle proudly showed off his new boots with the names of his and Annie's children, Riann, Reign, and Roman, on the side.
The move sparked fierce backlash, but he has switched off comments and refused to publicly acknowledge the criticism.
