‘Going through something hideous’

She tweeted: “My best friend is going through something hideous right now and what happened this week has brought a whole new light to the situation.

“At what point do we get the help we need? When it’s too late? She asked me to share her story.”

The 17 year old you refer to is my daughter… this whole disgraceful scenario needs everyone to work together.

The statement, from Larry’s ex, explained how the family were terrified as the alleged perpetrator was preying on young girls and asking them to get into his car.

It also said: “We have installed security cameras and I have bought a tracker, I can’t sleep and I shan’t rest until I know I have done everything I can so that IF my worst, most unimaginable nightmare happens, I can’t say ‘I should have…'”
