How can I help with this please?
if he is telling the truth then that is not a defamation. To that extent he is right. There is no defamation if the assertion is a truthful one.
The fact that he is telling people things you would rather they did not know does not turn it into a defamation I'm afraid.
If he is contacting you directly then there might be an arguments that it amounts to harassment maybe.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No. If the statement is truthful then it is not defamation.
It depends really.
A statement is not wholly truthful can be defamatory but it depends how distorted it it.
Defamation isn't accessible to most people anyway as it costs over £10k for a contested hearing.
No problem and all the best.

Again, it depends.
But if he is making contact with you and you are not responding then probably that would get over the hurdle without issue.
