A cryptic post by NRL bad boy Tyrone May has sparked rumours he’s dating the daughter of his Penrith coach.

As the Panthers premiership celebrations continue in Queensland, the rumour mill went into overdrive after Indi Cleary, the daughter of May’s coach Ivan and younger sister of teammate Nathan, posted an Instagram photo of the pair together. 

‘My King,’ she captioned the picture.   

The premiership star, 25, reposted the picture of himself and Indi, 22, whom he declared as ‘My Queen’.

The photo is longer on May’s Instagram, but remains on Indi’s account.

These cryptic posts fuelled speculation Tyrone May is dating Indi Cleary, the daughter of his Penrith Panthers coach

Four days earlier, Indi shared another photo posing with May and the Provan-Summon trophy in the Panthers dressing room following the NRL grand final win.

‘BFF,’ she captioned the photo.

Indi has also shared photos in recent days celebrating with the partners of her brother’s teammates. 

A Panthers official told the Daily Telegraph she and May aren’t dating and are simply good friends’. 

May came off the bench during the Penrith Panthers ’14-12 grand final win against South Sydney Rabbitohs at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium, the club’s third premiership in 54 years.

He has a close bond with the tight-knit Cleary family, who have stood by him during his legal dramas in recent years.  

The Panthers utility missed the entire 2019 season after being suspended by the NRL’s controversial no-fault stand down policy while facing charges over leaking the sex tape.

May was sentenced to 300 hours of community service and placed on a three-year good behaviour bond in early 2020.

The Penrith junior was supported in court by the Clearys as he pleaded guilty to four charges of disseminating images and recording images without consent.

May was charged after he filmed a sexual act with a woman at Coffs Harbour in February 2018.

He also filmed a sexual act with another woman in Kingswood in May 2018.

Magistrate Robyn Denes described his filming of the sexual interaction as ‘reprehensible’ when handing down his punishment.

Earlier this week, May copped online backlash after he called out the people who ‘threw dirt’ on his name during his legal dramas.

He quoted lyrics from song Fair Trade, referring to his court battle as he thanked the Cleary family for their support.

‘And the dirt that they threw on my name turned to soil and I grew up out it,’ he wrote. ‘Time for y’all to figure out what y’all goin’ do about it,’ he captioned photos celebrating with his coach and teammate after the grand final win.

May also posted a photo being flanked by his coach at court on the day of his sentencing.

Both posts were later deleted.
