In the small town of West Boldon, in the northeast of England, a scandal has broken out. Heidi Hepworth, 44, a mother of nine, left her family and flew to The Gambia to stay with her lover, whom she met on the internet. Heidi thinks she has found true love.
Heidi Hepworth, 44, lived with her husband for 23 years, giving birth to nine children. She left her husband and her children. According to Heidi, Mamadou Salye Jallow, 32, is her true love.
Back in Britain, unembarrassed, she appeared on the popular talk show Loose Women, defending her right to love. “I’ve planned everything,” says Heidi of her trip to Gambia.
I have nine children aged 28 to 6 years old. Only the three youngest worried me, but they stayed with my eldest daughter, she is 28 years old. I flew away for a month”.
According to Heidi, her husband Andrew knew she was flying to meet Salye, her new love, and even took her to the airport.
Heidi opened up about how she met her new love on social media. “Salier wrote to me himself,” she says, then I decided to leave my husband, and at the same time my relationship with Salier began to develop.
Heidi called her first trip to The Gambia “scary”. “I got on the plane and thought, ‘God, what am I doing? “, she says. “But when we arrived, Salye was already waiting for me with her brother and a friend, and everything fell into place immediately. It was wonderful. ! »
Talk show viewers accused Heidi of being a bad mother, willing to give up her little ones for a con man. “I’ll never believe it’s love!” », « Is she naive or just stupid? », « Poor children! », « Let’s look at her in a few months, when all the money will be taken from her! – these are just a few comments from viewers.
However, Heidi herself is enthusiastic. She says their relationship with Salier is perfectly preserved from a distance. According to her, Salie has an excellent relationship with her children, they regularly communicate via Internet chat.
Х “Salye calls them every day via video chat,” says Heidi. They like it. Only two older ones don’t approve of me: the son who lives with his father and the daughter who lives with her own husband. »
“Salier doesn’t ask me anything,” said Heidi. I rejuvenate with him. And then time will tell. I don’t care what they think of me. I am not a child, I am 44 years old. The most important thing for me are my children, and Salie knows that. »
