A devastated English husband has told how his wife left him and their nine kids for a “toyboy” from Gambia.
Andy Hepworth says he is nursing a broken heart while missus Heidi, 44, lives it up with her Facebook lover. She wants a divorce, saying her future is with Mamadou Jallow, 30. Andy and Heidi had been together 23 years.
Andy, 44, said: “It’s a midlife crisis. She started going to the gym, booking sunbeds, getting tattoos and wearing dresses. “The person she has become is horrible. She was a loving, caring mum. Now it’s like an alien has possessed her body. He said: “She had three children from a previous relationship but I brought them up as mine. We then had six kids of our own.
Andy claims he found messages from Mamadou on the family computer. He added: “It felt like my heart had been ripped out. I loved her.” Heidi says Mamadou, who lives in Banjul, is not using her to get a UK passport. She said: “Andy went off but I still took him back. The marriage came to a natural end. Now I’m very happy. You couldn’t meet a nicer man.”
Andy slammed Heidi for leaving their youngest kids, saying: “A caring mum wouldn’t go off gallivanting around Africa with her new boyfriend.” Heidi said: I see my future with Mamadou, and my children.
