Cheque Book Journalism

While I was in the US on my last trip, an ex-girlfriend, ticked off at me, decided to try to see if a quick buck could be made out of the situation with Emily.

Some of you may recall Angela Jackson, a Scottish mother who had two children abducted to Texas and finally recovered them to the UK only for the children to return to dad where they now live.

A reporter, Steve Smith covered the story and saw an opportunity to capitalise on the situation with Emily and my private life.

Steve Smith offered money for a "kiss and tell" story through Angela Jackson and asked for photographs and so on to be obtained.

My ex-girlfriend, Deana Brown obliged and stole photographs and papers from my home to which she had access while I was away.

In the meantime, my family, my current girlfriend and professional contacts as well as myself have been bombarded with harrsassing phone calls, emails of the vilest kind and a host of allegations of fraud, domestic violence, alcoholism and so on and why the hell are Barbara Greig and Dr Jill Jones-Soderman involved?

The photo of the unfortunate woman above was sent by Jackson et al claiming to be an old girlfriend of mine and this is what I did to her - except I don't know her and the photo has been traced to a domestic violence website here

I am sick of it.

A journalist, Steve Smith, offering money in an attempt to fabricate a story where none exists.

A former girlfriend, Deana Brown, who is ticked off because I have moved on.

A mother, Angela Jackson, who was helped to get her kids back and thinks she is hard done by because she lost her custody battle in Scotland and feels everyone should be miserable as well.

I am sick of the efforts to involve my ex wife and my children in the UK by these three.

I am sick of the threats to contact my girlfriend's employer with "information" on me.

I am sick of the dishonesty and deceit while a "real" story - how a little girl can be torn from her family, sent to a foreign country to go blind, to be placed up for sale/adoption and placed into the care of a peadophile, to go missing and be endangered, to be treated so horribly is not newsworthy while "boy meets girl, boy dumps girl, boy meets new girl" is such hot stuff.

I am sick to my stomach with how low people can descend for money.

Karl, Why and how did an ex girlfriend have access to your home? If she did not have your permission to access your property isn't that breaking and entry, robber?
Actually, this is libel, get an attorney and sue them! Hope you have your screen shots.

I see legal recourses on many ends for you here Karl, those are criminal issues, not family court issues. JMVHO
