Missing RAF gunner Corrie McKeague 'was a member of a swingers website'
Nicola Urquhart said the young couple had a Fab Swingers account.
She spoke out on Facebook after a link to her son’s swinger’s page was posted anonymously on an internet news site.
But she insisted her son’s lifestyle had “nothing to do” with his disappearance.
After facing a torrent of abuse from trolls, she said: “To the haters, get over it. This is none of your business.”

Mr McKeague, 23, from Fife, vanished in September after a night out with friends in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, near his base at RAF Honington.
Last week his girlfriend, April Oliver, 21, revealed she is expected his baby which is due in late spring.
Mrs Urquhart said: “Corrie and April were on dating sites, they are young and were enjoying themselves. They were both seeing other people, this has not been hidden.
“April and Corrie had a Fab Swingers account, to the haters, get over it. This is none of your business.

“April could have easily deleted her account as I could have deleted Corrie’s however what was far more important than a little embarrassment was that the police were informed immediately and given every ability to ensure this did not have anything to do with Corrie’s disappearance. Which they are still doing.”
A spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary said: “Police are aware of the social media and websites Corrie was using and this is part of our investigation. We will not be commenting further at this time.”
Mr McKeague disappeared when he was separated from friends while leaving the Flex nightclub on St Andrews Street South.
He was last seen in Bury St Edmunds town centre on CCTV at 3.25am, wearing a light pink Ralph Lauren shirt, white jeans and brown suede Timberland boots with light soles.
