Fergie is on “suicide watch” at her home in England after “drinking and popping too many pills” due to the recent scandal which has made front page news, according to IUC. She has been caught taking money in return for providing access to Prince Andrew.
Fergie, also known as the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, has been caught in an embarrassing and “appalling” transaction of selling access to her ex-husband, Prince Andrew of England. This deal was caught on film by an investigative news reporter going under cover to catch the former princess in this transaction, according to USA Today.
The 50 year old Duchess was under the belief the reporter was a business man who needed access to Andrew, who is a British trade envoy.
Fergie is on the tape saying that although Andrew will have no knowledge of this transaction, once the complete sum of money is paid the man will have complete access to him. She wanted 500,000 pounds and once the complete sum was paid she told the man, “it will open all the channels, whatever you need, whatever you want, and then you meet Andrew and that’s fine.”
Fergie also made it very clear on the tape that Prince Andrew could know nothing of this transaction because he is “whiter than white” and would never take money from anyone in a deal such as this. The duchess, 50, said “Andrew would know nothing about their meetings”.
The reporter was from The News of the World in the UK. He gave her a 40,000 pound check as her first payment. The remainder of the 500,000 pound payment was to come later, in total it is close to $800,000 American money.
Fergie got a bum deal in her divorce, according to the video from News of the World embedded in the USA Today article, something along the lines of only $30,000 a year. She had made millions as a spokesperson for Weight Watchers and other commercial ventures using her fame that she obtained by once being Prince Andrew’s princess. She has gone through all of that money and is now broke.
Fergie has admitted to doing this and USA Today reports she is “devastated and regrets the embarrassment she has caused”.
According to IUC, Prince Andrew is more furious now than he was when finding out Fergie was having extramarital affairs. He is asking her to leave the home she lives in which is owned by the Royal Family.
Fergie has disgraced the British First Family once again; the Queen has made a statement reminding the nation that she is not a part of the Royal Family. Fergie and Prince Andrew had two daughters together.
Apparently Fergie has been living beyond her means because she is broke. This scandal is just one transaction that was brought to light, have there been others?
Fergie did this without having any regard for her ex-husband, Prince Andrew or his position in the UK. She has two grown daughters who will have to live through this scandal. Ian Halperin from IUC has reported that Fergie is under suicide watch. Whether this is true or not, what Fergie did, she will need to live with the feeling of being disgraced for quite some time.
The people of the UK were betrayed by Fergie in this scandal, she was not only selling out Prince Andrew, but she also sold out the post or position that he holds for the English people.
Fergie knows that her life will not be the same; she was adored by many and welcomed with open arms by people all around her country. This will most likely no longer be the case, at least for a while. It is not just an allegation at this point, Fergie has admitted to doing this. What is her life going to be like now that this has been made public?
There may be a good reason for her to be on a suicide watch, this is the end of her being held in high regard by the people of the UK. This too will pass, and hopefully she will see this and not try anything to hurt herself, but in the meantime she has made one very bad decision when it came to making a business transaction.
