Geordie Shore star Scotty T has set the record straight on claims he 'paid for' an ex-fling of his to have an abortion.

In his autobiography, Scotty T: A Shore Thing, Scott openly speaks of a former flame of his having an abortion, and while the quotes have been picked up, the reality star now claims they have been misconstrued.

Following rumours that Scott had 'funded' the abortion, he has now insisted he hadn't, but fully supported the girl and her decision not to go through with the pregnancy.

Speaking to Daily Star, Scott explained that he wanted to address the abortion within his book, as he wanted to make others aware that it can happen.

He said: "It happens everyday and girls get heartbroken over it. It's not a nice thing and a lad should support his girl... There are a lot of lads out there who have no respect. This shows despite me being a womaniser, when something like this happens, I dedicate all my time to it and I support the person through it because I'm a nice kid.

While Scott stressed that he "didn't fund" the termination, he revealed he had flown the girl to Newcastle for the week, so they could talk through the decision together.

"Her decision was to not keep it," Scott added. "If she had said yes, I would've had to change everything that I was doing."

In his autobiography, Scott says he dealt with the situation "properly and respectfully."

The Sun published an extract from Scott's book that read: "She said she felt it was only right to let me know she was pregnant and that she wasn't going to go through with it. Forgive me for saying it, but the sudden relief I experienced when she said that she wasn't planning on keeping the baby was overwhelming, 'cos I knew for sure that I wasn't ready to be a dad."
