Los Angeles, Mar 2 (PTI) Musician John Mellencamp, who dated actress Meg Ryan for three years following their split in 2014, says his ex-girlfriend “hates me to death”.

Mellencamp, 65, told Howard Stern on ‘SiriusXM’ radio show that he still has great affection for the 55-year-old star but she is not interested in a friendship even though more than two years have passed since the pair called it quits, reported Us weekly.

“Oh, women hate me. I loved Meg Ryan. She hates me to death,” the singer said.

When asked to elaborate on why Ryan would “hate” being in a relationship with Mellencamp, Mellencamp said, “I think it’s because I’m a child. I throw fits, I gripe, I complain. I’m moody. Every bad thing that a fella can be, that’s me.” Mellencamp said he also tried to sort it out with Ryan but the actress was not interested.

“I’ve done that. She just doesn’t want anything to do with me. And I can’t blame her.”
