Gossip singer Beth Ditto has reportedly banned her girlfriend from accompanying her when they tour in the UK.

The 'Heavy Cross' singer says she refuses to allow her girlfriend – known as "Freddie" – to travel because she wants to protect her from the UK press.

"[It's] not because I don't think she can handle it, but because that's my life," reports Contactmusic.com. "Say what you want about me. Say it to my face, say it behind my back, write it on the fucking bathroom mirror, I don't care. But do not talk about the people I love. I will lose my mind."

She added: "The Mirror went all the way to Arkansas to look my dad's number up. I was just furious!"
