On Sunday, in the Sydney Morning Herald's weekly gossip column, it was reported that Grant Denyer refused to participate in a photoshoot unless he was paid.
"When contacted by Fairfax Media this week to pose in a Father's Day photo with his two daughters, Denyer's manager Titus Day said in no uncertain terms that his client was 'far too valuable to do something like that for free' but was happy to offer up Sophie Monk and UFC fighter Rob Whittaker in his place," reported The Herald.
Day has since spoken out and denied the claims put forward by the publication, telling the Daily Mail on Monday: "I certainly never had said anything like that."
Denyer is known as a family man who regularly posts online about his two children Sailer, aged 7, and Scout, aged 2, who he shares with wife, Chezzi.
On Father's Day, Chezzi shared an emotional Instagram post about what a doting father he is.
"Happy Dad’s day to our Daddy @grantdenyer, you are remarkable. We adore you. When you’re away there a massive part of us that’s missing. We love your laugh, your jovial ways, how you look after us and how loved you make us feel." she shared.
