It seems that no matter what you do or how go about your business you find you always need to defend yourself. I am no exception. I am a mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Friend being the operative word in this case as being Adam Whittington’s friend is what has brought me here.
A little background on our “friendship”. I attended the same high school as Adam from 1988-1993. We definitely knew each other, however he now tells people we didn’t. We lost touch then good old Facebook came along and we reconnected, not unlike many school yard friendships. We became friends on Facebook in 2008. I followed all his pages. The many businesses he built that failed and then came CARI. I will admit I wasn’t overly enthused by a business that what I thought “kidnapped” children but as time went on I saw the good work he done (which of course is all he showed the public) and I became a fan. I was proud of my friend and was in awe of his successes (again, as this is all he showed the public) and pledged my full support.
In April 2016 I found that Adam had been detained in Lebanon due to a recovery that had been sabotaged. It wasn’t sabotaged but I’ll get to that later, I felt helpless and upset that my friend was in this situation and I wanted to help. So I contacted another school friend Kylie Robertson, we spoke and decided to create a campaign and that is how #bringskippyhome began.
I literally threw myself into that campaign boots and all. I made an enemy of Channel 9 among others all in the name of helping and protecting my “friend’. Adam and I exchanged many letters during his detainment. He would often say don’t let anyone forget that he was there and I made it my mission not too. Referred to me as Sis (sister), I appeared in the media, radio stations, newspapers and headed rallies outside Channel 9 studios because they left my friend behind and I was damned if I was going to remain silent even after I was threatened and abused by complete strangers. So said recovery was sabotaged he claimed but was unable to produce evidence to show this. Not even to Channel 7 who paid all his expenses for his trip to Australia to tell his story. Makes all these claims the truth is coming… WHERE”S THE DAMN TRUTH ADAM? The recovery was not sabotaged. The recovery went south and Mr 200 recoveries was nowhere to be found. Claims he was at the marina getting the exit visa to get out of the Lebanon and sent 3 unqualified men and a distraught mother out to recover those poor babies in such a high profile recovery which was being documented for 60 minutes!!! Not to mention the fateful video chat he had with a journo from the ABC telling him all about the fact he was with the 60 minutes team and we’d hear all about it after telling everyone he was not contactable as he had no wi-fi and what do you know, the journo leaks the tape as soon as our mate was locked up. Adam was paid the big bucks, a TV crew was involved, there were 2 children and where was Adam? NOT THERE!! M.I.A!
So along with the campaign I began fund raisers for him and his family as I was told with Adam out of commission his family would need financial help. Yes, I was in control of the fund raisers and I was responsible for transferring the funds to the bank account set up for him. No funny business went on.
Never did I ever want to go on TV. Due to circumstances of my personal life I didn’t want to be seen in the media but I did so for his family. Adam has a lovely family so you need to ask the question of “What went wrong with him?” right.
Fast forward to his release, celebrations, relief, happy, elated… Didn’t last long.
This was when the real Adam began to show. The nasty, vindictive, self absorbed, revenge driven ego maniac that had the whole world fooled. Including me. On his return home we still ran the campaign only now he was a part of it. He had control, which wasn’t a bad thing as it was his campaign but OH MY GOD!! He became controlling, abusive, snappy and not to mention erratic. I simply put it down to the experience he had been through but you don’t treat people who helped like I did the way I was ultimately treated by him.
One day he wanted the campaign closed so he could have “some kind of closure” then the next day he would want it up and running again. Down. Up. Down. Up. To which I got tired of and booted him off. I had a life and I wanted to get back to it. This was when he turned nasty. During his detainment I was that focused on helping him it ended my relationship, ruining some lifelong friendships because I put his cause before every single thing in my life but that is all on me not him. Backed the right cause but definitely the wrong man!
So after I booted him from the groups he sends in the wife to plead his case but I had had enough. You see Adam had been a bit naughty and I had a fair idea although I hadn’t got clarification. I was asked by his wife (now ex wife I’m told) why was I remaining friends with Louise Halford because she was a nutjob. (Her words not mine). I replied by saying that I am a 42 year old woman and noone tells me who I can and can’t be friends with. So I bet you’re wondering about how Louise fits in to all this. I can’t speak for her but I can tell you all what I know.
Louise is a family law lawyer in the UK who specialises in Parental Child Abduction. She is very good at what she does. Adam met her as they work in a similar industry and he would refer clients to her. He also referred himself to her in a non professional way and although Louise is not proud of it she owns her part. However when you are no longer required Adam chews you up and spits you out and that is EXACTLY what he done to Louise and I. My only fault was letting him assume that I knew about him and Louise at that time and I replied to his wife when she asked me why I resumed my friendship with Louise was “That is a question you will need to ask your husband”. Put him in a bit of a pickle then didn’t I? In my defence I was hurt and upset that Adam was treating me so poorly and yes, removing him from the groups was a little immature on my part but it was nothing compared to what he done to me next.
Moving on to a few days later and no doubt he would of been questioned over my blase response to his wife, I had been blocked on Facebook by him and then he wrote a post accusing me of theft from the funds, abusing some of his close friends and not allowing them to be part of the campaign, when ever someone was removed it was to protect Adam and Kylie and I always discussed it. You’re probably wondering why I haven’t mentioned Kylie that is because she stayed in the background most of the time, now looking back I know why. There is only one word for someone like her MANIPULATOR. Her aim all along was to remove myself and Louise from the equation and b yes she did succeed. They are so alike Adam and Kylie. A great pair I tell you. She is not all innocent in this. So as I was saying, I was thrown under the perverbial bus by Adam, which resulted in me getting horrible inboxes from people I knew and strangers. Among the filth were threats to my person, suggestions that I kill myself and just plain disgusting things about my character. HE STARTED THE HATE! With accusations that were completely unfounded and without a shred of proof. I was honestly devastated. That same night I attempted to take my life. I was rushed to hospital and my life was saved but I was not happy and completely crushed that someone who I had classed as a brother, not anything to do with how I had helped him, the mere fact someone close to me would accuse me of such despicable behaviour. Now the salt in the wound, when he found out that I attempted to take my life his words were “It’s a pity she didn’t f**king die” (sic) WOW right!!! Just kick me in the gut when I’m down. I vowed from then I would have nothing to do with him. Ever again. But wait.. There’s more. Good old Kylie couldn’t wait to throw me under the next bus by commenting her loyalty to Adam and completely distancing herself from me. ME! Who had spoken every single day to her for over 5 months. Who had been through every ebb and flow throughout the whole campaign with me. Completely betrayed. A few days later she contacted me via email feigning concern and I will be honest and say my reply was not pretty. All worked out for her though, she now heads the PRC charity that Adam founded. I wish her all the luck in the world, she will need it.
So I had no contact with Adam from that point. Although in true Adam style he couldn’t help himself and started on Louise and myself sporadically with no justification as I was reminded of the saying “don’t poke the bear” so we didn’t retaliate publicly. I did however send him an email asking him to leave me alone. By this time Louise had told me all about her and Adam’s relationship as she wanted me to understand why he had attacked me so furiously. I did not spill his dirty little secret and I had known for over a year before I actually used that to warn him off, privately, after he had gone on the attack again. I had been made aware of his reply to a tweet about me, I called Louise and asked her if she was in contact with him to tell him only that I knew what he had been publicly stating about me only to be told, low and behold, he had fallen out with Louise because she wouldn’t do his dirty work. At that point I decided it would be best to leave it as I didn’t want the stress of another face off with him. Well….. then he went after my family. Publicly. In a reply to 2 mentally unstable women who had created a persona called Amelia Wators to do nothing but bully a bunch of us over a situation completely unrelated to Adam. Why did he involve himself? I wondered myself. I wondered why he would go at my throat again when I knew his dirty little secret. I wasn’t going to let him away with spreading his hate to my family so I again emailed him, so keep up now, that is only 2 emails in 14 months. 2!! I told him I knew everything about his little trip to Amsterdam and he was damn lucky I was thinking of his wife and boys unbeknown to me he was going through a divorce. You see I didn’t keep up with his life but he sure as hell couldn’t stay out of mine. Unfortunately for him!
Then began the abuse as you will see above. The name calling. The threats and the intimidation not to mention defamation of my character. After seeing a tweet mentioning myself and Louise as being associated with frauds I decided I had had enough and I went public. For the very first time in 16 months I went public with his abuse and threats on Facebook which he had reported and removed as you can see in his latest blog (link is below). What he fails to show his followers is the post. He is way too interested in who has liked it, linking us all together. The #fraudsquad as he calls us. Please read my post that I posted on Facebook and tell me who is the fraud?
Adam has done nothing but try and destroy good people and their businesses with lies and fabrication. Nothing but redemption is on his mind. He seems to want to be the ONLY child recovery agent in the world as he has degraded every single one of them and not one of them have had anything to do with him. He wonders why we all came together! Go figure!
I am just an everyday person going about my business and I was more than willing to leave it all behind in 2016. Unfortunately Adam didn’t want too because any attention is good attention right? Well I am here to prove that this man is coward. He has never asked to confront me face to face but spews lies and innuendo all over social media and quite frankly I think he’s lost his mind. He tried to take my sanity but he failed. He doesn’t have that power.
Anyone who comes into contact with him is fair game. Be wary of using CARI or donating to PRC as you see above in his own words are threats behind his business page. He has no problem with doing it and if you look closely Kylie is copied into every single one and does not intervene until Louise mentions her name. Kylie Robertson is an enabler of this egomaniac.
Make no mistake, I have kept quiet for 16 months. I have watched as he has tried to destroy my friend and her business when her only mistake was having a relationship with him. While he was married. I have let him away with flogging me in the public arena for way too long. Who I decide to associate myself with is none of his business.
Watch this space!
Well Adam you’ve been telling us the truth is coming, now it’s here!
