Speaking to the Irish Mirror in 2017, the Notorious said: “My girlfriend worked very hard throughout the years and stuck by me when I had essentially absolutely nothing.

“I only had a dream that I was telling her. For me to be able to take her out of work, give her everything she’s ever wanted and to travel the world with her fills me with pride. It keeps me going.

“We’ve been together for a long time. She’s been through it all with me.”
