Ryan Thomas reportedly wants ex Tina O’Brien to pay for the damage she allegedly caused to his Range Rover last month.

Over the weekend, it was reported that Ryan, 37, had apparently accused the Coronation Street star of smashing his car wing mirror with a baseball bat, after the former couple became embroiled in a row at 1am one night.

The two stars, who met on the set of the ITV soap and share a daughter together, dated for six years before going their separate ways in 2009.

Sources have claimed that the mum-of-two, 38, took off a wing mirror and damaged paintwork on Ryan’s car during an argument last month.

Neither party are yet to publicly comment on the reports, but it has since been claimed that Ryan wants his ex-girlfriend to foot the bill for the damage she allegedly caused.

“Ryan will be billing Tina for what she has done to her car. She caused around £1,000 worth of damage after going at it with a baseball bat,” a source close to the dad-of-two has told The Sun.

“The paintwork needs sorting out and the wing mirror is a write-off.”

The insider went on to claim that Ryan doesn’t want ‘any more drama’ with the mother of his eldest child, but was left shaken by her alleged actions.

Both stars are yet to comment on the allegations



“But he wants her to right the wrong when it comes to the cost he was saddled with,” they added when talking to the publication.

“This incident has caused a huge amount of tension but Ryan wants to move on.”

The Mirror has contacted representatives for both Ryan and Tina for comment.

The alleged incident apparently took place when Sarah Platt actress Tina was partying at a friend’s house last month.

The soap star is reportedly said to have attacked Ryan’s Range Rover, after the actor drove to the location of the gathering.

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, a source close to Ryan claimed that the alleged incident “seems to have snapped the fragile thread their relationship was hanging by”.

Tina and Ryan first began dating in 2003 after the actress split from co-star Bruno Langley, who played Ryan’s on-screen brother on the ITV soap.

The couple split in 2009 after Tina claimed that Ryan told her he no longer loved her and she said that she was “devastated”.
