Peter Andre slams Myleene Klass’ online birthday present rant
Singer Peter Andre thinks that Myleene Klass should not have aired her thoughts publicly.
Writing in his column for New! magazine, Andre discusses Myleene’s public slamming of the mothers who asked for money instead of presents for their children.
While Andre (41) admitted he thought Myleen’s rant was “hilarious” and he agreed with it, he ultimately feels she shouldn’t have shared it online.
“It’s wrong to unwillingly bring people into the limelight,” the dad-of-three writes.
“If you want to embarrass someone or don’t agree with someone, do it directly – not on social media.”

Former Hear Say star Myleene caused controversy earlier this month when she shared screenshots of emails from fellow mothers in her daughter Ava’s school.
The emails requested that children attending birthday parties for the woman's’ children should contribute £10 in place of a traditional birthday present.
The headmistress of the fee-paying school that the 7-year-olds attend subsequenrly criticised Myleene in the school newsletter.
“No more parking on zig zags. No more blocking in the neighbours. No more unicorns. And as my granny would’ve said, if you can’t tweet anything nice, don’t tweet anything at all,” the headmistress wrote.
Commenting on the matter, Andre added, “I understand why the teacher said what she said but, then again, there was no need to do it so publicly. Two wrongs don’t make a right.
