Mil­lions.. but died skint

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News -

“Fred­die had bad feel­ings about back home, so I think he would want to stay here rather than be repa­tri­ated. He felt the Bri­tish peo­ple de­serted him.”

The di­vorced mum-of-one spoke out as doc­u­ments emerged show­ing lawyers act­ing for Karin Ward se­cured an in­terim £380,000 charg­ing or­der on his £170,000 home, plus al­most £115,000 in in­ter­est.

The or­der stemmed from a UK slan­der case Fred­die lost in 2015, leav­ing him with a bill for £1.1mil­lion. He had sought dam­ages over claims he groped Ms Ward back­stage on a Jimmy Sav­ile TV show in 1974, when she was 15.

Karin told the Sun­day Mir­ror: “It’s aw­ful he is dead. I be­lieve my le­gal team was still pur­su­ing him for the money but it was him who took ac­tion against me.

“I’ve had peo­ple call­ing me call­ing me a money grab­ber and gold dig­ger but I didn’t want any of this.”
