anyone else been following this trial with his ex girlfriend?

so he shacks up with this woman who has a history of alcoholism, drug taking, self harming, promiscuity, blackmail and suicide attempts. The short affair ends, he gets caught in the papers, she threatens to expose more about him and hounds him with phone calls even after changing his number. He reports her to the police. end of story

Roll forward a few years and he leaves his wife for this same woman, moves in with her and now winds up in court on an abuse charge because - surprise surprise - the woman needs help in the head and he is a fruit loop for going back with her. she sounds like a first class manipulator and he sounds like a first class idiot.

Honestly, what was he thinking?!?!?! Career suicide? Me thinks so. I have lost all respect for the guy for going back to her again. He is nothing to me now

And breathe wine

YANBU but it's a bit early for wine and 'he is nothing to me now' is somewhat melodramatic (unless you have had relations with him) grin

Do you know them both personally? If not your post comes across as very silly indeed.

Do you know him, personally? Are you Alan Carr?

I think he's a nasty bastard. Funny how the same evidence can be interpreted so differently.

Oh the poor defenceless man allowing himself to be duped by the evil manipulative crazy laydee.

Just one thing- how on earth do you think she managed to get him to say such vile and abusive things to her on the recordings which were played in court?

She must be ever so clever.

He is nothing to me now

And me neither. I've never met the twat. Hes worried though - he's lost weight...

caramelwaffle Wed 03-Oct-12 13:23:07

Dueling put it far too nicely I feel.

But yes I fear, he is an idiot - and more.

a nasty bar steward

I think it's possible he's a lot worse than an 'idiot'.

AGoldenOrange Wed 03-Oct-12 13:25:19

Yes he is an idiot, for being an abusive arse!

DuelingFanjo Wed 03-Oct-12 13:26:05

RE the wieght loss, he's been losing weight over the last couple of years - well documented. Not sure it's from stress but more from diet and being in a musical.

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Wed 03-Oct-12 13:28:25

<flings outstretched finger at door> Begone Lee Collins! You are nothing to me now!

Blimey. Are you his mum?

He sounds like an abusive tosser as well as an arse. Sounds like, being the operative phrase, because I don't know.

MrsjREwing Wed 03-Oct-12 13:29:57

His exw is seeing Karma visiting.

JiltedJohnsJulie Wed 03-Oct-12 13:32:24

Haven't been following it but DH has. He read a bit out last night saying that JLC admits hitting the woman but he only did it to "calm her down"........

CaseyShraeger Wed 03-Oct-12 13:36:56

I think you'll find that he wound up in court on an abuse charge because - among other things - he was recorded being abusive. I'm not aware that alcoholism, drug taking, self harming, promiscuity, blackmail or suicide attempts give a woman the power to cause imaginary conversations to record themselves on tape.

He dismisses the recording, saying that "everyone has arguments" - well, no, not arguments like that, they don't. Indeed, the fact that he is trying to normalise that behaviour makes me more convinced than anything else that he's an abusive bully, whether or not the rest of the allegations are true and whether or not his abusive behaviour is deemed to have been illegal.

And what a lovely man he sounds, doesn't he. <sarcasm>

Gets his poor wife to make a fb account for him so that he could poke his mistress.

Screams at his mistress for not putting cream on his back.

Oh yes. I would be totally fucking delighted to welcome him as a son in law in 20 years time. shock hmm

FatimaLovesBread Wed 03-Oct-12 13:41:15

Are you reading about the same court case hmm
Sounds like he's a bit more than an idiot

GetOrfAKAMrsUsainBolt Wed 03-Oct-12 13:44:25

I think the op should win a prize for the most goadtastic OP I have seen for a while. Beautifully designed to get mumsnetters to froth.

caramelwaffle Wed 03-Oct-12 13:51:26

But it is soooo obvious GetOrf and I personally am up for a scrap as I have had no sugar and am ready to fight, fight, fight. Yes bun-fighty suits me right now grin

caramelwaffle Wed 03-Oct-12 13:52:28

Op even has a sugary name ffs. Grrrr

onebigchocolatemess Wed 03-Oct-12 14:22:19

It was intentionally underplayed at what a twat he is, apologies if my post did not convey my tone.

Have not posted on AIBU for a while, forgot how feisty some of you can be

I was just genuinely shocked that this guy from the telly has turned about to be such a twat

Enough said, apologies for any offence caused

squoosh Wed 03-Oct-12 14:25:16

I was shocked.

He always seemed like such a jolly joker.

You really can't tell.

GreenEyesAndHam Wed 03-Oct-12 14:29:29

He is dead to me.

lolaflores Wed 03-Oct-12 14:30:09

There was quite the scurrilous rumour on Popbitch. I shan't repeat it here at the risk of breaking the internet.
The accusations levelled at her are the natural course of defending counsel. pull her character apart fibre by fibre. And the jury at the end of the day make the decisions. cannot wait to see what he gets hit service.

It would not surprise me if he claims he has an out of control drug problem. the behaviour, the weight loss, paranoia, the hair. Guarantee he will blame it on his celebrity life style if he gets done for it.
