Ronnie O’Sullivan’s relationship with his daughter prevents him from meeting his grandson


Ronnie O’Sullivan has lived a challenging personal life over the years.

The 46-year-old snooker legend recently confirmed that he’s back with longtime fiancée Laila Roas, but as his daughter Taylor Ann Magnus, 25, said, a reunion is out of the question.

O’Sullivan, who recently won the 2022 World Snooker Championship, has not seen her in years, and the origins of their torn relationship stretch back decades to his previous relationship with her mother.

In 2018, Taylor Ann gave birth to her daughter, but soon made it clear that she didn’t want to do anything with O’Sullivan.

Now in 2022, she’s reaffirmed their separate relationship and vowed that Rooney would never meet his three-year-old granddaughter.

In the 1990s, O’Sullivan had an affair with Sally Ann Magnus, who had moved into O’Sullivan’s home when his parents went to prison.

However, when Ronnie’s mother Maria was finally released, she expelled Sally Ann soon after, quickly ending their relationship.

Because of this, he has only met their daughter, 25-year-old Taylor-Ann Magnus, a few times.

After giving birth to baby Taylor Anne, Anne visited him in 2018, she confirmed that her daughter would be growing up not knowing who O’Sullivan was.

Speaking to The Sun, she said, “He may be world champion to some, but to me he doesn’t fit to be called ‘Dad’ let alone ‘Grandpa’.”

“Zara Ann will grow up not knowing who he is. He has made so many promises but what he says and does is completely different.”

Shortly after his granddaughter was born, O’Sullivan made it clear that he wanted to meet her.

But Taylor Ann refused to let that happen.

“When I read my dad said he wanted to see Zara, I thought there was a chance we’d be a normal family and he could be a grandfather to her,” she continued.

“I’ve always wished for a better, closer and more loving relationship with my father and I think I’ve waited my whole life for him.

“When I announced I was pregnant, there was a slight surge of interest from Ronnie. His friend called me a few times and said Ronnie is very excited about being a grandfather.

“I should have known better than to raise my hopes. He told a few reporters how sad he was that we weren’t closer and mentioned how much he’d like to see my daughter, but that’s about it. It was just a show.”

“He never called me personally. It broke my heart.”

The two haven’t seen each other in person since Taylor-Ann was a teenager.

Speaking to The Mirror, Taylor-Anne confirmed: “I was 17 or 18 when I last saw him and I forgave him on the inside, although that doesn’t excuse what he did.

“I’ve been so happy for the past eight years. I’ve accepted that it won’t be there and I’m fine with that. But since I had my daughter, I’ve been like, ‘I really don’t want that person in my life.'”

It’s not O’Sullivan’s only child either, as the snooker star has two more children from his relationship with his ex-wife, Joe Langley.

In 2006 his second daughter Lily was born and in 2007 Ronnie Jr was welcomed into the world.

In a new interview with The Mirror, Taylor-Ann reiterated that she has no intention of meeting O’Sullivan with his granddaughter.

She said, “It’s not a part of my life. I don’t want someone like that around me and my baby.”

She added that she does not follow his sports career and does not care about her on social media.

“I don’t watch it. I didn’t know he made it to the finals because I don’t have social media. I don’t follow any of that.”
