According to a report from Irish Mirror, a woman named Terri Murray claims Conor McGregor fathered her one-year-old daughter Clodagh, and is requesting the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion take a paternity test.
Per this report, Conor McGregor has denied this claim, stating instead that Murray slept with one of his friends. That said, he is reportedly willing to take a test to clear things up.
“I don’t want his money. I just want to prove he is Clodagh’s dad and I’m not lying,” Murray told Irish Mirror. “I’m still thinking I shouldn’t do this, it is wrong, It has got to the point, I’m living with my mum, on my own, with no job, with a baby, I’m struggling, it is harder than I thought it was.
“I really didn’t want to do this, I wish we could have sorted it out privately. I don’t know why he let it come to this.”
Murray claims she slept with Conor McGregor in 2017, when he was visiting Liverpool for the Grand National, four weeks before McGregor’s girlfriend Dee Devlin gave birth to the pair’s first child, Conor Jr.
“I’ve said to Conor ‘Hiya’ and he has gone ‘I’ve been waiting for you’, and I’ve gone ‘Conor, I never got an acceptable picture with you before, can I get a picture with you?’
“And he put his arm round with me and walked me into the (bed) room. In the room was an ensuite bathroom and he’s gone ‘Baby, I’ll give you a home movie never mind a picture’.
“I was laughing and looking in the mirror and he has got his arm around me and I’ve gone to take a photo.
“Then I’ve thought, well, Conor McGregor! I know it is bad, he has got a girlfriend, but I wasn’t thinking about that. I just started kissing him back.
“I remember saying, ‘Have you got a girlfriend?’ and he said he had been on and off with this girl for years. We slept together. To be honest there was no sleep, we were not sleeping, do you know what I mean?
“I told him I wasn’t on nothing [contraception] and he was like ‘Ah f*** it, babe’.”
The Irish Mirror’s report includes several photos of Conor McGregor and Murray together. The publication also claims to have seen private messages the pair sent each other.
Murray claims she slept with McGregor a second time several days after their first night together.
Murray claims she contacted McGregor when she learned she was pregnant, but never heard back from him.
The Mirror’s report states Murray previously worked as a claims underwriter for a legal firm, but is now a full-time mother, and is struggling financially.
“I want my kid to have the best life and I know his money can help with that,” Murray told the Irish Mirror. “If he gets that DNA test, I’ve said ‘You never have to speak to me again, you can walk away’.
“He is telling everyone I slept with someone else. He is telling everyone my baby is someone else’s.
“It is not fair and it can’t be left like this any longer.”
To be clear, this is all presently unconfirmed. There is currently no proof that Conor McGregor has fathered a child outside of his relationship with Dee Devlin. Stay tuned for further updates on this situation as they emerge.
