‘I haven’t been able to see my son, and my ex partner wont let me see him. She hasn’t responded to any of my messages or emails about him. 

‘I am alone in my house and I have nobody, and it’s just so overwhelming at the moment,’ he continued, while gasping between agonised sobs.

In a further video, the model added: 'You just sit outside in your backyard and just watch the world go by, but without seeing the world. This is what it is, being locked down here in Melbourne and it just kills me. All I do is think about my son and I just want to be there and be with him. And all I have is nothing. There's just nothing there at the moment'
