Wendy, I am at a total loss to understand your diatribe of vicious lies against myself and Emma and Kimble in the British press. It is ironic as as soon as we heard of the hearing - not until after the judgment - we were all devastated this public outing would have on the innocent parties, Alexander Jnr and Ashley. We were in the process, on Thursday, Australian time, of seeking to offer them a trip to Australia for summer and possible further schooling in Australia for Alexander. It is all very well to express our hurt and amazement at your vitriolic actions --- but what about your children --- one can only presume that you care very little for them.
Now to more specific things and a couple of lies. I had absolutely no knowledge of any alleged marriage ceremony entered into with that Stoner woman until I was approached at my workplace, well after you were "married" and I believe Alexander would have been about 4 at the time. The woman was then in her late 40s and had teenage children - she had been in a very long term relationship which led me, my attorneys and employer at the time to believe it had been a total set-up and scam. And although I do not believe anything that Alexander says these days I believe that at barely 20 at a BBQ party he was tricked into "let's all pretend to get married". If you think for a moment at the press Alexander has always generated how come not a word of this ceremony made it into any of the local Melbourne, Australian press. It doesn't make sense. I paid the woman off --- Norman told Alexander what was going on -- and a divorce, annulment was obtained. I have the legal papers signed by the woman at the time accepting the "blackmail" amount in full and final settlement. Norman and Parke held the legal papers.
Now, this nonsense about you not knowing I was alive until after Alexander was born.... A lie, Wendy, you forget Wendy, that one of my oldest and best friends from University, Norman Parker was - during the time and up until his death, Alexander's de facto father. I spoke to you before the baby was born and the day after you and Alexander went through the form of marriage. I have always regarded you as a daughter and Emma has loved you like a sister. Norman totally regarded you as his "family" and indeed made provision with certain funds here in Australia, at a discretion of executors, that would go to Alexander at the age of 21. I am now seeking (as one of the executors) to have this negated.
I have stood up for you throughout all the drama of the past few years. I have not spoken to Alexander since, or barely. I do not enter into any discussion with Laura.
I have consistently said, regardless of who the father is, or under what circumstances, they are my grandchildren and Alexander both morally and financially should accept the responsibility --- and they should be protected above all.
Unfortunately the children are the innocent victims.
You have turned, in my mind, into a vitriolic trailer park harridan. I can not believe that my love and respect for you meant so little. That you would honestly believe that I know or disguised this Stoner business.
And much as I hate to say it, and as a result of investigations by my solicitors here and my own searches I absolutely believe that Alexander had no idea that the backyard wedding ceremony was anything more than a joke. He never lived with or slept with this woman. At the time he was in a committed relationship with Sonia, who was in fact and innocent party at the BBQ.
Finally Norman and I decided to keep the matter "secret" that there was no point in harming you or the children - and at that time Alexander (Sir) worshipped the ground you walked on and cherished the children.
Wendy, I have since University, kept a detailed diary and these facts are documented. Including the first time I visited, when you lived next door to you mother, and the grueling and distressing grilling on how much money Alexander had and how to get hold of it shocked me, but over the years I put the conversation to the back of my mind and put it down as my own paranoia.
Wendy I cannot forgive you. Finally I told you of Emma's very dire health problems and this last couple of days have seen her condition deteriorate significantly - - not the case which we supported at the time and indeed its judgment - but your trailer park vent to the press and the irreparable damage done to your children with total disregard to their well being and future by your rant.has resulted
PS: There is no way that the Trusts - either in the US or UK knew of either the sham marriage nor the subsequent annulment.
