Earlier this week we brought you the story of Bradford City's mascot losing his job because he is apparently no longer fat enough.
Lenny Berry has played the Bantams’ City Gent for 20 years - which primarily involved wandering around in a bowler hat and City kit and having fun with the fans.
After being diagnosed with diabetes, he lost weight for health reasons - and Berry says that meant he had to give up his beloved hobby.
However, there has been a twist in the tale with the club now claiming that Berry's "behaviour, demeanour and attitude" also contributed to his dismissal.
Bradford had entered in a confidentiality agreement with Berry when he left his post, but that now appears to be in tatters after the 59-year-old's comments earlier this week - and the club have decided to put forward their side of the story.
"We feel the way the story’s been told on his side has breached confidentiality and forced us to reveal more details of the story,” club director Roger Owen told the Bradford Telegraph & Argus.
Owen revealed to the newspaper that parents had complained about the City Gent's "unsuitable" language while the Telegraph & Argus also saw a safety report from last season in which one club said that Berry had been a "pain" and would not be invited back.
Bradford had offered to keep Berry in the role if he wore a sumo-like fat suit and changed his behaviour, but Berry declined.
"We had hoped to address that with the opportunity to change his behaviour, linked to a change in physical appearance of the mascot, reverting back to the original concept of the City Gent.
"We offered him the chance of a fresh start.
"He had been pushing the boundaries. It was not an issue of weight. Some people have suggested we are encouraging obesity, but we are a professional sporting club, so why would we do that?"
In response, Berry told the paper: "Nothing was said to me at all. If I had done anything wrong they would have taken me out or arrested me. But Bradford City said they only got the reports at the end of the season.
"If I swore I will have apologised there and then.
"I've had letters from parents of children who have been mascots who have sent me pictures and said how much they enjoyed their day."
