Peter Andre slams hater who said Junior only got record deal because of him

Peter Andre has slammed a critic who lashed out at his son Junior's music career.

The Mysterious Girl star hit back at the "hater", who said young Junior only got a record deal "because of who his dad is."

Junior, 16, is a budding pop star who is following in his father's footsteps by entering into the music industry.

The teen signed a major deal with Columbia Records last summer, and he's been keeping himself busy making music in the studio ever since.

Junior, who is also the son of Peter's ex Katie Price, has been able to focus on crafting his future hits after finishing his GCSEs last year.

It seems Junior's hard work has finally paid off as he was able to give fans a first listen to his debut single.

The young artist could be seen dancing and miming along to the catchy R&B track which blasted in the studio – and fans loved it.

Both of Junior's proud parents shared the clip, with Peter penning: "Could not be prouder son."

However, one fan wasn't so pleased with the track.

They said: "His voice has been covered over and he has only got record deal because of who his dad is" as they attached a laughing-face.

Singer Peter decided to give the commenter a piece of his mind as he replied: "[sic] a haters job is to hate so I feel it’s only fair to let you do your job if you can let me do mine [heart emoji]."

Peter replied: "I understand you :)) trust me the kids are gonna love it. And you haven’t heard anything yet. it’s all love. [heart emoji] Always."

Junior thanked his pop star dad for launching his career after announcing his exciting record deal with Columbia.

"I’m proud but I’m also a little bit scared as I guess anyone would be."
