UPPER EAST SIDE — A Manhattan heiress  with substance abuse problems roughed up her sobriety companion in her dad’s  swanky Southampton home, a new lawsuit charges.

Joselyn Wohl, the daughter of real estate mogul Larry Wohl, is accused of  throwing her addiction coach, Heather McKean, down a flight of stairs and  choking her.

McKean is now suing Joselyn, her father and her socialite mother, Denise  Wohl, for not doing enough to safeguard against the 32-year-old heiress’  “violent propensities,” according to a lawsuit filed Monday in Manhattan  Civil Supreme Court.

McKean’s lawyer, Bryan J. Swerling, said his client had worked for a year  with Joselyn as a live-in companion before the alleged March 5 attack.

“She was hired by the Wohls, Denise and Larry, to spend time with her  daughter, who obviously had some issues,” Swerling said. “One day Joselyn made  up her mind she didn’t want Heather around anymore and attacked her on the  stairwell and yanked her down the stairs.”

Swerling said Joselyn then choked McKean until his client managed to free  herself and locked herself in a room to call police. The lawyer said Southampton  cops took her into custody but never formally charged her.

“It took [McKean] by surprise,” Swerling said of the alleged attack. “It’s my  understanding that Joselyn has had some prior outbursts.”

The Southampton Town Police Department did not immediately  provide information on the alleged incident.

The Wohls, who have a Park Avenue apartment, are known for their philanthropy  and hosting galas around the city. Joselyn’s socialite sister, Arden Wohl, who  sports a signature headband, frequently shows up as a boldface name in gossip  columns.

A message left at Larry Wohl’s real estate firm was not immediately  returned.

Swerling said McKean suffered back and knee injuries in the alleged attack  and will need to have surgery.

McKean, who now lives in Florida, is also suing her employer, Cerberus Life Management. The lawsuit does not specify the  amount she seeks.

Upscale Restaurant Credit Card Ring Busted- and included someone I’ve mentioned on this blog!

November 20, 2011 at 9:56 pm (Andrew Parker, mainstream, New York, personal)

I knew when I saw this on the news last week, Andrew Parker and Damion Jacas were somehow involved.  Even before they released names I had a feeling.  Damion, of whom I knew as “DJ” had a history of this type of thing, even back when Andrew and I were together.  Also, according to Andrew, DJ had friends who were serious criminals.  Andrew knew people that would have made great friends for him but DJ had power over him for some reason.  I had a feeling when Andrew got into credit card theft, DJ was somehow involved.

When Andrew and I were breaking up DJ had also done some unhonorable things to me and was laughing in the background as Andrew and I were breaking up on the phone.

Guess whos laughing now?

FROM NEW YORK COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE:

“The high-end targets of this case make it notable, but disturbingly this case is far from unique,” said District Attorney Vance. “Every day, hardworking New Yorkers find themselves the victims of identity theft – their financial information stolen from ATMs, from internet transactions, from financial institutions and from retailers. It can take often take years to have their credit restored. My Office’s Cybercrime and Identity Theft Bureau will continue to work with our partners in law enforcement to dismantle criminal rings that attempt to use technology to circumvent the law.”

Police Commissioner Kelly said: “The suspects in this credit card fraud case thought that they flew low on law enforcement’s radar, but NYPD detectives working with the U.S. Secret Service and Manhattan District Attorney’s office were able to trace the crew of steakhouse waiters who skimmed victims’ information to the buyers who ordered high-end luxury items for complicit clients. These criminals were careful, but as it turned out, not nearly careful enough.”

ASAC Mahon said: “These types of crimes not only impact consumers and businesses in our community, but can erode the public’s confidence in the nation’s financial payment systems. This successful outcome is a testament of our agency’s commitment to interagency collaboration.”

New York City Department of Consumer Affairs Commissioner Jonathan Mintz said: “Unfortunately, identity theft is an all too common occurrence, with an estimated 10 million Americans across the country falling victim every year, often not even knowing it. DCA inspectors conduct hundreds of inspections to insure that retailers comply with local laws requiring that only the last five numbers of consumers’ credit cards get printed on receipts, and each year the Department hosts Shred Fest at multiple sites throughout the City to help New Yorkers shred their documents containing the kind of personal information ID thieves use. I applaud DA Vance and his team, as well as the Police Department, for their terrific pursuit, arrest, and indictment of this credit card forgery ring.”

The indictments and arrests are the culmination of an 18-month investigation, which utilized court-ordered eavesdropping and video surveillance, physical surveillance, computer forensics, and extensive analysis of credit card, banking and phone records.

According to the indictment, LUIS DAMIAN JACAS, a/k/a DAMIEN JACES, a/k/a “DJ,” is the director of the criminal enterprise who oversaw and managed all aspects of the criminal operation. Members and associates of the criminal enterprise performed multiple roles depending upon the needs of the enterprise as determined by JACAS. Over time, new members were recruited into the criminal enterprise in order to supplement and, in some cases, replace former members of the enterprise. In addition to JACAS, the criminal enterprise consisted of members and associates who engaged in the roles of “manager,” “skimmer,” and “shopper.” Often, they sold merchandise to individuals who acted as “complicit customers.”

Skimmers

Members of the criminal organization recruited waiters in high-end restaurants to work as “skimmers.” The restaurants included Smith & Wollensky, The Capital Grille, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, and JoJo, all in Manhattan, as well as Morton’s in Stamford, Connecticut, and The Bicycle Club in New Jersey.

Each restaurant workers was given small electronic devices called “skimmers” to surreptitiously record an unsuspecting customer’s credit card information from the magnetic stripe on the customer’s card. The defendants charged with acting as skimmers for the criminal enterprise were DANIEL BURNS, JENNIFER MORGAN, PETER MCGUIRE, SASHA SCOLLIN, BRIAN TORREY, JAMES O’CONNELL, and KENNETH FRANQUIZ.

According to documents filed in court, after the stolen credit card data was collected on the skimming devices, it was returned either directly to JACAS or to another manager who would then turn it over to JACAS. JACAS is accused of encoding the information onto credit card “stock” – or blank plastic credit card forms – to replicate the credit cards. The newly encoded cards were embossed with the names and account numbers of the authentic card holders. The forged credit cards were then used by a network of shoppers to purchase merchandise and services. Frequently, the shoppers who used the forged credit cards to purchase merchandise also possessed forged driver’s licenses, also in the name of the authentic card holders. American Express card holders were not responsible for the losses incurred as a result of this scheme.

The equipment necessary to create forged credit cards and identification cards consisted of skimming devices, computers, embossers, encoders, tippers, printers, blank credit card stock, and the artwork used to copy authentic credit cards. According to documents filed in court, JACAS regularly directed BURNS, BLUMENFRUCHT, and BERTELETTI to purchase equipment necessary for the manufacture of the forged credit cards. FERNANDEZ provided technological, computer, and other assistance to JACAS for the creation of forged instruments. Since July 2011, JACAS has stored the equipment necessary to make forged credit cards and driver’s licenses in the apartment of TASHA ROSENHAUS, located in Manhattan.

Shoppers & Managers

The shoppers were tasked with actually using the stolen identities, fake credit cards, and fake driver’s licenses to obtain luxury items from high-end merchants. Charged shoppers for the criminal enterprise were DANIEL BURNS, EDDIE KYLE, MICHAEL DEJESUS, JACOB BLUMENFRUCHT, ANTHONY COFFAO, ANTHONY MARRA, RICHARD BERTELETTI, DAVOR GONCIN, and ANDREW POLLACK, a/k/a ANDREW PARKER.

During the shopping expeditions, the shoppers were often supervised by managers. The managers accompanied the shoppers to the retail locations, directed the shoppers to purchase certain merchandise, reviewed the fraudulently obtained merchandise to ensure that the shoppers purchased the correct items, and provided status updates to JACAS during the shopping expeditions. At the end of the shopping expeditions, the fraudulently obtained merchandise was either given directly to JACAS by the shopper, or given to the manager who would in turn transfer the merchandise to JACAS. Identified managers of this enterprise, who in some cases also acted as shoppers, were DANIEL BURNS, JACOB BLUMENFRUCHT, RICHARD BERTELETTI, and DAVOR GONCIN, and ANDREW POLLACK, a/k/a ANDREW PARKER.

The shoppers were directed to purchase watches, handbags, wallets, and other merchandise from high-end retail stores that would then be sold on behalf of the enterprise. Fraudulent purchases were made at such locations as Chanel, Neiman Marcus, Cartier, Hermes of Paris, Bloomingdales, Bergdorf Goodman, Waldmann’s, London Jewelers, Burberry, Jimmy Choo, Lord & Taylor, and Starbucks. Shopping trips occurred in Manhattan, Boston, Chicago, Florida, Westchester County, Nassau County, and Suffolk County.

Search warrants executed yesterday in conjunction with the investigation resulted in the seizure of luxury goods, including more than $1 million worth of luxury watches and a cache of expensive wine, and more $1.2 million in cash; as well as skimming devices and the equipment necessary to manufacture fraudulent credit cards and driver’s licenses.

Before being sold, the fraudulently-obtained merchandise was warehoused in a storage unit located at a Manhattan Mini Storage on East 62th Street. often assisted in the sale of the fraudulently obtained merchandise by introducing JACAS to other individuals, including ELLE CHONG ROZAN and RICHARD REICHBACH, who purchased the merchandise, for typically 50 percent of the retail price.

Complicit Customers

In addition to the merchandise that was fraudulently purchased in the regular course of business for the enterprise, the enterprise received orders for specific merchandise from “complicit customers.” Complicit customers were individuals who are charged with requesting merchandise knowing that the items would be purchased with forged credit cards. IRWIN GUTMAN were regular customers of the criminal enterprise. These customers, at times, also acted as fences, selling stolen property on the Internet.

Assistant District Attorneys Michael Sachs and Matthew Montana are handling the prosecution of this case under the supervision of Assistant District Attorney David Szuchman, Chief of the Cybercrime and Identity Theft Bureau; Assistant District Attorney Kenn Kern, Deputy Chief of the Cybercrime and Identity Theft Bureau; and Executive Assistant District Attorney Adam S. Kaufmann, Chief of the Investigation Division. The following individuals also assisted in the investigation: Assistant District Attorney Amyjane Rettew, Counsel to the Investigation Division; Deputy Chief Investigator for Cybercrime Richard Brittson; Investigator Robert Muldoon and Investigative Analyst Erin Mulderig of the District Attorney’s Investigations Bureau, under the supervision of John Bilich, Chief of the District Attorney’s Investigations Bureau. Cybercrime Analysts Bret Rubin and Mariangela Perrotta, and Selena Ley of the High Technology Analysis Unit, also assisted in the investigation. Assistant District Attorney Duncan Levin, Chief of the Asset Forfeiture Unit, and Assistant United States Attorney Karen Hennigan of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York are handling the asset forfeiture.

District Attorney Vance thanked Special Agent-in-Charge Assistant Special Agent-in-Charge of Investigations Paul Mahon, Assistant to the Special Agent in Charge Farrell Dolan, Lead Investigator Special Agent Christopher Marsh, and Special Agent Mark Norberg, all of the United States Secret Service’s New York Field Office. District Attorney Vance also thanked Police Commissioner Kelly and Detective Kenneth Baker of the New York City Police Department; the Westchester County Police Department and District Attorney’s Office; and the Hudson County, New Jersey, Prosecutors’ Office.

Andrew Parker JAILWATCH AGAIN?!?

August 24, 2011 at 4:38 pm (Andrew Parker)

Andrew Parker doing shots with an early career Jenny Hendrix and myself at the Nightmoves show in Tampa

I received a message today that Andrew Parker was once again arrested for theft This time was in Connecticut trying to steal a $6,000 Rolex watch.  I’m trying to confirm the information but the website for Connecticut Department of Corrections only shows sentenced inmates.  I have reason to belive the incident took place in Greenwich as Parker had previously offended in that area but cannot find a website for their local jail.

This is a person who publicly trashed me for my adult industry past, but at least what I was doing was legal, or at least honest.  He was happy to run with the porn crowd until his mom found out.

UPDATE FROM STAMFORD ADVOCATE:

NORWALK — A New York City man was arrested Thursday for trying to use a  phony credit card to buy a Rolex watch, police said.

Andrew Pollack, 41, of 211 East 70th St., New York, N.Y., was charged with  third-degree forgery and criminal attempt to commit third-degree larceny. He was  held on $25,000 bond.

Sgt. Lisa  Cotto said an investigation began Aug. 4, when Pollack talked to a sales  person about buying a $6,000 Rolex watch at David Harvey Jewelers at 51 Wall  St., in Norwalk

As Pollack and the sales person were getting ready to close the deal, Pollack became extremely nervous when the salesperson made copies of his credit card and license, Cotto said.

Seeming to quickly lose interest in the watch, Pollack decided to put off the  purchase and left the store, police said. The salesperson grabbed the photocopy  of the license and began searching for Pollack’s name on Google.

Pollack’s name appeared in a newspaper article about trying to charge $15,000  on a credit card at Richard’s clothing store in Greenwich without the owner’s  knowledge, police said; before that, he was arrested by Westport police for  pulling a similar stunt. Pollack’s Greenwich case is still pending  in court.

After seeing the story online, the employee called police and investigators  looked at the credit card and were told by the bank that no such card exists,  Cotto said.

When he was notified of a warrant for his arrest, Pollack turned himself in  to police.

Question to my readers in NYC: Was Andrew Parker/Pollack released?

April 6, 2011 at 9:12 am (Andrew Parker, New York)

It says on the New York Department of Corrections website that his earliest release date was 3/28/11. He has outstanding charges in Conneticut for basicly the same thing although he’s not listed on their state prison website as an inmate. Maybe a halfway house situation? I can’t see him getting off this easy for the amount and seriousness of the charges.

Ex Andrew Pollack aka Andrew Parker Gets Time

September 25, 2010 at 1:23 am (adult, Andrew Parker, Heather Pink, Luke Ford, New York)

Andrew Parker last year participated in a bizarre identity theft credit card scheme.  Durring the prosess he lost his Madison Ave boutique that I basically used to run, and spent a few months in Rikers Island.  While he was out on bail we spoke once.  He said he was sorry about what had happened at the end of our relationship.  He sounded nothing like he did while we were together.

A month later I get a call from Page 6.  He had been arrested again for stealing items from Hermes and Burberry stores on Madison Ave.  He was held without bail at Rikers again, with pending charges in Greenwich Ct.

His sentencing was in New York  earlier this week.  1 to 3 years which he’ll be doing upstate.  I assume the out-of-state charges will be additional time.

His info can be found at these 2 links:

My Interview On lukeford.net This week

May 29, 2010 at 9:16 pm (adult, Andrew Parker, Heather Pink, Los Angeles, Luke Ford, mainstream, New York, personal)

Heather, who lives in Manhattan: “I took a job working for a politician in Palm Beach County. I got fired because his wife didn’t like me. I had just gotten an apartment. I had spent all this money. I had bills. I was looking through the paper. This was before there were a lot of jobs on the internet. There was an ad for dancers, make $500 or $5,000 a week. I figured I would take that job until something else came up.

“The next thing I knew, I was traveling. I was in it for years. I was working at the Gold Club in Atlanta.

“I didn’t stay there long. I wasn’t jaded by life enough to do that. The dances there were $10 and they charged you $300 a night to work there.

“I took a regular job.”

Luke: “How did working as a dancer affect your life?”

Heather: “I have knee problems to this day. I wasn’t eating a lot, but I drank every day for eight months. It was basically a requirement. If you refused alcohol, you’d be reprimanded. Now I don’t even drink at all, hardly.”

Luke: “Why would the clubs want you to drink alcohol?”

Heather: “Because it increased your sales. They could charge more money for dancer’s drinks.”

“I became a **** star by accident in 2001.”

Luke: “How did you meet up with Andrew Parker?”

Heather: “I woke up the morning after new years and I was in bed with him.

“A friend of mine had a party in Tribeca. I didn’t want to go back up town. I had an apartment in the city but I lived in Florida. So I slept over. So I guess he came in later and got in the other side of the bed. It was a large bed.

“So I roll over in bed the next morning and he’s there. He says, ‘I’m hung over. Let’s get a bloody mary.’

“That happened. Two weeks go by. It was my birthday. I was going to come up for the weekend. He threw a party for me. Somehow I ended up moving in.”

“It was the only high-profile coupleness that I was ever in. I’ve been with high profile people since then but I never really wanted to be a public couple again because people are pulling for the relationship not to work out.

“It ended horribly. I was devastated for years afterward. I got over him but I never got over what had happened.”

Luke: “Did you realize you were in a relationship with a thief?”

Heather: “Not to that degree.”

Luke: “Why did you move to LA in 2006?”

Heather: “After the Andrew Parker scandal, I was blacklisted. People wouldn’t talk to me. People sided with him because he could get them into the better parties, better clubs. It’s very superficial here like that. And he was the It Boy at the time. I basically had to leave. I was pushed out of the social circle.

People would talk to me to see what I was doing so they could report back to him. Or they would tell me, oh yeah, we saw him out with that girl or these people. I didn’t really want to hear that, so I just left.

“Los Angeles was a hard adjustment. The first year I couldn’t stand it. I hated the food, so I learned to cook really well to emulate the food I was eating in New York. I made some very good friends. I probably have better friends in LA than I do in New York now.”

Luke: “Why did you leave ****?”

Heather: “I think I just grew up. I kinda wanted a relationship. I wanted people to take me seriously. I had the potential to do other things.

“I went to a psychologist and the psychologist told me I’m never going to find a decent man if I’m still doing that, which may or may not be true. It would definitely be limiting. It was the best thing to do at the time.”

Luke: “When you look back on your time in the industry, what were the benefits and what were the prices?”

Heather: “I made some good connections. I talked to some people who otherwise wouldn’t have noticed my existence. When I came back here, there were so few girls in Manhattan who had ever done ****, even though it is a huge city. I was hooked up places I ordinarily wouldn’t have been.

“The bad part — they only test for three STDs out of how many? Dating becomes difficult. Even if the guy was OK with the fact that you had done it while you were together, when you break up, they always bring it up or throw it in your face and they fight with you. People look at you differently. I don’t really tell people when I first meet them.

“My first boyfriend after Andrew, I didn’t tell him until seven months into it.

“He was an agent with the Endeavor Agency. They just merged with William Morris. He’s well known.

“A good friend of mine said to not bring it up because he was either going to dump me or it was going to turn into a weird sex thing. So I didn’t tell him at first.

“Then seven months into it, I go to his house and he’s got **** on. I said in a joking way, maybe I should go do that. He said, I’ve got a feeling you already did.

“That same friend of mine said, you better tell him before someone else does. So I told him that night. He said he wasn’t surprised because there were certain things with me ***ually were not what a normal girl would be doing. I don’t know if that is a compliment or not.”

Luke: “Did the way he related to you change after that?”

Heather: “No. He’s sweet. He actually felt sorry for me. It was Andrew who was pushing me to stay in the business and to get more media attention.”

Luke: “Have you noticed that it changes the way most people relate to you when they find out?”

Heather: “Women hate it. They hate it automatically. Men are just into it for other reasons. They think you’re going to do more. They think you’re easy. They think they’re guaranteed.”

Luke: “Is that true?”

Heather: “No. I have such little ***, I barely leave my apartment. I do it less.”

“I’m constantly going to the GYN. I’ve noticed that. That’s just to make sure that nothing happened because of it.”

Luke: “Do you miss the limelight?”

Heather: “I never got out of the limelight. I’m promoting. People still write about me.”

Luke: “Ever since I’ve known you, you’ve always been in the middle of dramatic events. Is that true, and if so, why?”

Heather: “I don’t think I’m dramatic. It’s the people who are drawn to me.”

Luke: “I wonder if you represent something exciting and dangerous to people?”

Heather: “It’s a big misconception if it is. The things in my life that are bad are always extremely bad and the good points are so good beyond what any normal person, things that would happen to them. I go to really good parties. I’ve taken really good vacations. I’m in with all the right people.”

Luke: “What makes you happy about your life today and what makes you sad?”

Heather: “I’m sad that I’m alone.”

“The good part is that I’m in with the right people, but it’s very overrated.”

Luke: “Who are the right people?”

Heather: “Just very connected people. People in the social scene. I can get in the parties, but then what? It’s not very fulfilling. Because I did ****, it’s cool to have me there but nobody is going to settle down with me.”

Luke: “What are your ambitions?”

Heather: “I don’t know. I could probably be a publicist or something.”

“There was always something there that made me slightly different. I can’t pinpoint what it was, but I was never really able to relate to them. Maybe it is because I grew up here as opposed to out there. A different type of upbringing. Different type of goals.

“I remember when I was starting in the industry and I was staying at an agent’s models house and another girl had come in the same day as me. She’d come in from out of town also and she had no money with her. I go, who goes out of town on business and doesn’t bring money and doesn’t have credit cards? That surprised me.

“Years later, that became so normal to hear about that sort of thing. At the time, it was a real culture shock.”

Luke: “Did you lose any friends or relationship from working in XXX?”

Heather: “Yes. All these people who say they didn’t, they must be a different type of person than me or they are lying. I’ve lost family and I’ve lost friends I’ve been friends with my whole life over this. That was probably the biggest downside. I didn’t realize how big it was going to get. I didn’t realize how many people watch ****. I certainly didn’t.”

“My family for years has been kinda confrontational about it once they found it. I was under the impression that they wouldn’t find out. They’re not big ****-watching types.

“Somebody right after the Tampa Show sent them videos.”

Luke: “And how did they react?”

Heather: “I was on the phone with my mother. I was packing to go to Vegas for a signing. And she said, Why are you going to Vegas? I said I have to go for work. She said, it’s not for **** is it? I said no, why?

“She said, I don’t know how to tell you this, but I saw you.

“It ruined the whole signing. It was all in my head.

“She went into graphic detail about everything I was saying to this guy. She said, ‘Your father saw parts of you that he hasn’t seen in years.’

“It skeeved me out. So bad. I didn’t care who saw it as long as they weren’t related to me.”

Luke: “I wonder why your dad was watching it?”

Heather: “I have no idea. So they would have something on me.”

Luke: “So your mother repeated back to you some of your dialogue?”

Heather: “It really grossed me out. It was probably one of the most embarrassing moments of my life.

“It’s not that they’re into it. It’s not that they are weird like that. She just had this snide tone about it. It was horrible.”

“They didn’t know I was sexually active until I was 21.

“I did it one time when I was 15 and then didn’t do it again for two years.”

Luke: “What did they teach you about sex?”

Heather: “Don’t do it and if I did, I’d get kicked out of the house. What did your parents teach you about sex?”

Luke: “Don’t do it. Save it for marriage.”

“Since you left **** in 2007, have you been able to heal many of the broken relationships?”

Heather: “No. It’s just so humiliating when it happens that you don’t want to go back and heal anything. You’re just better off to walk away from it. I’m not very confrontational.”

“I would never do it again. With the popularity of Jenna Jameson, it was almost like that was on purpose to get more girls into porn. They put her on E! True Hollywood Story. Look at me and my beautiful mansion. Get in and you’ll be like this too.

“I made some decent money. I’m really anal with money. That’s the only reason I was able to do somewhat well. No, I didn’t get a mansion out of it. A couple of nice apartments. I could’ve gotten that anyway.”

Luke: “Did you save your money while you were in the industry?”

Heather: “I saved it but I lost a lot of money last year. With the market and with moving [back to Manhattan]. I took a job and that didn’t turn out well. It’s hard now.”

Luke: “Do people still throw it in your face?”

Heather: “Oh yes. I had somebody a week ago.”

Luke: “How do you react?”

Heather: “It hurts. It’s probably one of the most hurtful things they can do because it is not met anymore and I’m not even sure it was while I was doing it. It’s not who I am as a person.”

Luke: “Andrew Parker went down in a spectacular way.”

Heather: “I’m surprised you didn’t read about it while it was going on. It was the number one story here.”

Heather says journalists can’t screw her over. “How bad could they make my reputation? I already did porn. I have nothing to lose. Even if they wrote that I’m a horrible bitch, it would still make a couple of movies sell.”

Luke: “Do you have any thoughts on betrayal?”

Heather: “People seem to like doing it to me. Maybe it is the type of people who tend to be drawn to me. I’m not living up to everyone’s expectations. Andrew Parker used to say I was boring.”

Luke: “I imagine this has all taken some toll on your health.”

Heather: “My health is not good. It’s becoming obvious to other people. I’ve spent this year in the hospital. These people weren’t loyal to me when I was in that.”

Luke: “Have there been people in your life who pleasantly surprised you during these difficult times?”

Heather: “No. They stick around for a while and then leave.”

Luke: “Have you been reading anything good?”

Heather: “I haven’t been able to eat much. My stomach’s been bad. I haven’t been able to eat. I’ve lost a lot of weight, which is why I’ve been in the hospital.”

“At the beginning of this year, I was in hospital but I still had friends. I had somebody in my life who was there and basically they betrayed me. They turned on me.”
