A woman who was rumoured to be the girlfriend of The Script frontman Danny O'Donoghue has said that photographs depicting the pair were Photoshopped and says she has never had contact with him.

It was reported in the media that Suzana Buuron, from Brazil, was dating the singer.

Reports detailed how the pair were "madly in love" and living together during the Covid-19 lockdowns, with Danny sharing that he and his girlfriend enjoyed romantic early morning swims and watching the sunset.

He never revealed her name and speculation mounted that the girl in question was Suzana.

However, in an interview last month Danny told a reporter that a fan was "pretending" to be his girlfriend online.

The 41-year-old said that Suzana's face had been superimposed onto photographs of people standing next to him and that he is constantly quizzed about her - but he doesn't know who she is. Danny said that his actual girlfriend has found the whole thing very amusing.

In the interview, Danny promised fans that his new girlfriend would be by his side when he attended the Pride of Britain awards last weekend. And the star duly arrived at the ceremony with the sultry beauty, whose name has yet to be revealed.

Speaking to the Sunday World this week, Suzana said the images were altered but claims she doesn't even know who the superstar is.

"I don't know this gentleman. I've never had contact with him," she said. "I found out about the photos through a Spanish friend."

Suzana has previously shared a video shot on a mobile phone from a concert as The Script performed their hit Hall of Fame.

Despite claiming not to know who Danny was, Suzana said she contacted Danny's sister to alert him to the fake images.

"I've tried to alert Danny so much and I even looked for a sister of his to alert that I was not responsible for these photos, but they never answered me - on the contrary, I think the sister even blocked me."

Suzana, who works in construction, said she has "no idea" why someone would superimpose her into images with the singer and use her name.

"I can't imagine someone who doesn't like me to expose me in this way."

"Danny should have asked me what was going on, or returned [answered] me, but he chose to condemn directly. In the end, I learned how to deal with it, and I believe how it all goes by one day, and people leave me alone."

The woman said that fans are making fake accounts of her and her family, but claims she did nothing wrong.

"My mind is calm, sane, my heart is at peace. I did nothing. Really, I don't waste energy on it."

Suzana said she hopes the matter will finally be resolved and that the person responsible for the images "becomes a better person".

"I hope that this matter is now over and whoever did this becomes a better person."

Earlier this week, an unknown tall beauty who attended the Pride of Britain awards with Danny appeared by his side at the MITs Awards in The Grosvenor House Hotel in London. The awards this year honoured British DJ and music producer Pete Tong.

Danny O'Donoghue was previously in a four-year relationship with Brazilian model Anne De Paula before the pair split in 2018.

The couple had a bitter break-up after Danny's sister branded Anna "disrespectful" after the then 23-year-old beauty shared a racy snap captioned "Looking at bae like…"

"Looking at BAE? Are you for real?" Danny's sister responded. "How disrespectful can one person be to publicly say what you have… This is where your age comes in! All this sort of stuff does is attract attention for the wrong reasons. How very insecure are you to need to post this sort of crap."

In October, The Script released a compilation album, Tales from The Script, ahead of their 2022 greatest hits global tour.

The band, which also includes Mark Sheehan and Glen Power, will play Dublin's 3Arena on June 14 and 15 and in Musgrave Park, Cork, June 19.

The group have released six number-one albums so far.
