Martin, 54, hoped to take Russian Alina, 29, to the wedding later this summer.

But Emma, 26, and Real Madrid star Bale, 28, have kicked him into touch over Alina.

They had already postponed their wedding until Martin was freed from a US jail, where he was serving six years for a shares scam.

A close family source said: "There have been ructions — Emma isn't happy with her dad.

"He's not long out of jail long but wasted no time starting afresh with someone new.

"Emma doesn't want her dad turning up at her wedding with a woman none off the family has ever met."

Bale, who is paid £650,000 a week at Real, and Emma celebrated the arrival of their first son, Axel, last month. They have two daughters.

Martin Rhys-Jones flew to Madrid two weeks ago to meet the new baby.

But the family source said there was an "almighty row" about Alina and he cut the trip short.

Martin was was released early from a six-year sentence after being sent down for a $2.9million fraud in the US and Spain.

The fraudster was part of a team than ran a telemarketing scam using high pressure sales techniques to trick people into buying expensive shares which were almost worthless.

Rhys-Jones set up business in Barcelona in 2005 after separating from his wife, Suzanne, in Cardiff.

Emma has barred a string of relatives from her wedding, including cousin Epiphany Dring, 28, a topless model who fled abroad after a bag of drugs and cash vanished from their grandparent's house.

She has also black-listed her aunt Jane Burns, 55, along with her current husband Daniel, 41, and ex Carl Dring, 50 – Epiphany's Dad.

A source said last year: "Emma is resigned to the fact that a lot of her family will not be there – but she has spoken to Gareth about it all and they have really got no choice.

"She is angry with the family over what has gone on and particularly the fact it put her grandparents in danger.

"So she has let it be known that a lot of people, including her cousin Epiphany and uncles and aunts will not be invited and will not be welcome."
