Jack Tweed told his Twitter followers that false reports funded new cars.
The widower of late reality superstar Jade Goody, Jack Tweed, has brazenly confessed to selling false stories to papers during the height of his wife's fame in order to make thousands of pounds to help fund their celebrity lifestyle. The news has shocked fans as Tweed refuses to apologise for duping the public for personal gain.
Jack Tweed says wife Jade Goody lied for money
In a startling revelation (more because of the fact that Tweed has so shamelessly confessed rather than the actual act of lying itself), Jade Goody's husband has bragged about taking in upwards of £30k from newspapers after selling fake stories so that the 'Big Brother' star could by herself a new car.
'Some strange clueless people in that Z list world that believe anything', he said on Twitter this week. 'The amount of bulls**t that me and jade used to make up when she wanted a new car or whatever, just make some lie up everyone believes it for stories and 30k later your laughing.'
The meda immediately leapt on the story, with headlines suggesting that the couple actually purchased a car worth £30,000. But Tweed was quick to correct the headlines, rather hypocritically slamming them for being misleading and attempting to go back on his original confession, with 'the amount of bulls**t' turning into 'a couple of made up stories'.
'People are not that naive to believe everything they read. Twisting words again', he said. 'A couple of made up stories didn't fund our lifestyle or buy a car. Do people really believe that people don't do set-up pap shots etc?'
Does it really matter though, Tweed? If you're making up the stories anyway, a few alterations from the papers themselves won't make much difference. Perhaps the most startling statement of all came today (June 3rd 2016), when he suggested that Jade Goody was selling stories for money for her children.
'How am I still getting some drips tellin me I can't talk about MY wife?' He said. 'She made as much as she could for kids and still would if she was here.'
A car seems like an unusual purchase for a then-4-to-5-year-old, but who are we to judge?
