Barry Statham is the father of English actor and film producer Jason Statham.

He is a singer in the Canary Islands.

Early life

Barry resided in a small town in the Bolsover district of Derbyshire, England. His wife, Eileen Yates, is a dancer, and he was a street seller. 

Statham worked odd jobs to provide for his family. He painted houses, worked in a coal mine, performed as a singer, and was a vendor of merchandise. 

He would usually sell products and sing at a lounge. 

Eileen and Barry had their son Jason in 1967. From an early age, Jason tried to go on a different path. 

He did not want to do the jobs his father did. Barry invited Vinnie Jones into James's life. The two were like brothers and would always play football together. 

The two later on acted in a film together as well.

On the other hand, Barry's second son Lee followed his father's footsteps and became a singer.

Barry Statham had to seal to survive

Statham's family were not as privileged and had very little money. Barry could not hold a steady paying job. 

His spouse was also not making enough as a dancer. Because of this difficult situation, Barry and his entire family had to do the wrong things to feed themselves.

The family had to hold fake auctions so that they can defraud the spectators and steal money. 

They would sell fake perfume, jewelry, and artifacts at a higher price. Sometimes, people would go to see these auctions, and they would steal from the spectators.

In all of this, Barry's son Jason was also included. He would go and sell perfumes and fake jewelry on the street.

At the same time, he would participate in street performances that the people enjoyed very much.

Once, Jason was surrounded by gangsters at the age of nine. They were people who specialized in swindling people. Over time, Statham even started swindling individuals, and he did it very well.

Jason modeled for Tommy Hilfiger 

He enlisted in the Army after graduating from high school but found that this was not his way. 

Then, to devote himself to martial arts, he left the Armed Forces, another one of his passions since he was a boy. 

In his potential involvement in action movies, what he learned in this discipline will assist him.

Jason was called for modeling by a brand called the French Connection. Later on, a manager found him and asked him if he could do photoshoots. 

He was later enrolled in modeling for Levi's and Tommy Hilfiger. Statham worked with many modeling companies, endorsements, and advertising campaigns.

Relationship and kids

He was in a relationship with Kelly Brook, a model, actress, designer of swimsuits, and hostess of English television. 

Jason and Kelly's relationship ended because of issues connected to long hours away from home.

In 2010, Statham started dating model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. On January 10th, 2016, they declared their engagement. 

They revealed in February 2017 that they were expecting their first child. In June 2017, their son Jack Oscar Statham was born.
