MOULTON, England - A British woman said Wednesday she has married Omar bin Laden, the al-Qaida leader's fourth son, after they met in Egypt last fall.

Jane Felix-Browne, a 51-year-old grandmother from this village in northwestern England, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that she met bin Laden, 27, while riding a horse near Egypt's Great Pyramid and they married on April 24.

The Times and Sun newspapers, which initially reported the story, said she was in Egypt for medical treatment

Who really believes this is love? The bin Laden kid only did it f or an "in" into the UK so he can murder innocent civilians.

There is an absolute contingent of british and other western nation/euro women who meet their( usually egyptian..) husbands in egypt and ship em back - mainly meeting poor local boys in luxor/sharm el sheik and hurghada.It's gigalos galore. I am of the understanding that it is so common that the us embassy in cairo has enforced a new rule suspending all notarisation of " free to marry" docs for US citizens.. as they must present a " free to marry" doc to the ministry of justice ( Egypt)to marry an egyptian national -well its catch 22.
But you could go to a neighbouring country or cyprus and marry..

But Orfi marriage is the common one over there -its a marriage when you're not having a marriage...particularly useful for rotating the 51 year old grandma loves of the lives....

ya habibiiiii.

It's all true. I remember when I was young lad of six or so growing up in NZ and mother dearest got terribly excited when Coronation Street's Dedrie (Dedry?? -- whatever), the chick who had just got divorced from Ken Barlow (who I met once (the actor who played him anyway)), shacked up with a young man of Mediterranean extraction. It caused quite a stir.

You are married so we can assume that someone loved you, therefore this is far from improbable.


Loads of supposition - for a start he will never get in, she is a second wife, take the trouble to read the article, therefore she will never be able to sponsor him, you can check on the IND website if you wish . Second point - do you think he needs a visa to create havoc if he so desires ? Third point, so his father is Osama Bin Laden, it would be unfair to judge your daughter on the basis of your morals- why not get to know the guy first, you may well like him.


I'm told that Osama has a cock like a demolition ball, if this is hereditary then Julian may well have the same qualities .

Just out of interest- he is going to bomb the UK not the US, count yourself lucky that we are doing you such a favour.

Again, pvt whingemeister strays from anything remotely about the topic to babble on with his puerile fetish with one person.. me.

Regardless, the daily mail has done a full interview here:
(It's quite long so it may not be useful for our attention-challenged members)
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/femail/article.html?in_article_id=468310&in_page_id=1879
Revealed in the world's first full interview: The bizarre world of Mrs Bin Laden
by JENNY JOHNSTON - Last updated at 21:10pm on 13th July 2007

Heavens, what a mess. The new Mrs Bin Laden is about to board a flight out of the UK, and it's not going according to plan.

First, our telephone interview is abruptly halted when the police "would like a word" with her. "Gotta go, I think I am being questioned," snaps Jane Felix-Browne, and the line goes dead.

Ten minutes later, she is back - minus her passport and boarding pass, apparently - and reading aloud from a card that has been kindly handed to her, presumably by some men with large guns.

"Under Section 7 of the Terrorism Act, it is your duty to be truthful... you must provide any documents, passports... blah blah blah... you are not under arrest," she reads.

Woah! Hold on. Is she being detained? On what grounds? Surely even she wouldn't be daft enough to put her married name on her passport? She sounds irritated rather than concerned. "It's a formality. I've done nothing wrong. I've had this before. Let's keep talking until they come back."

However, we are again interrupted - this time by a choking sound that cuts her off in mid-sentence. Whatever now?

Has she been marched away in handcuffs? Strangled? Wrestled to the ground by a fellow passenger who took issue with the family name?

Alas, nothing so dramatic. "Sorry," she splutters. "I was trying to take a drink while wearing a burka. I've poured it down me. What a mess."

So begins the farce that is interviewing Jane Felix-Browne, aka Mrs Omar Bin Laden, daughter-in-law of Osama - yes, that Osama.

A few days ago, her neighbours in the tranquil Cheshire village of Moulton knew Jane as just another slightly dotty grandmother who sat on the parish council.

She was a bit odd, granted, with a face unnaturally smoothed, it was rumoured, by Botox and the surgeon's scalpel.

She was always off on exotic jaunts to the Middle East, and spoke of her devout Islamic faith - but all in clipped English tones.

And, of course, there was the small matter of her five former husbands, as well as her latest, who at 27 is young enough to be her son.

Still, that sort of gossip-fodder was nothing compared to what the good folk of Moulton faced this week when Jane, 51, was unveiled - metaphorically, at least - as Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden's daughter-in-law.
She had met his fourth son, Omar, on a riding holiday in Egypt and fallen madly in love. The fact that his father was the most notorious terrorist the world has ever known was never something that was going to stand in Jane's way.

It seems it's not even an issue that was discussed at length before the marriage ceremony.

Today, she is taking family loyalty to a somewhat improbable level, insisting again that the Bin Laden patriarch might just be innocent. With a jaw-dropping combination of stupidity and naivety, she says in her best school ma'am voice, when I raise the question of the Twin Towers: "I mean, do you know - beyond all doubt - that he did it?

"If so, I'd like you to show me the evidence. I don't think it's nice to make assumptions about someone when you don't know the facts."

The blushing bride agreed yesterday to tell her remarkable story to the Mail - but refused point blank to do a face-to-face interview, presumably because she was too busy making arrangements to flee the country.

It's strangely apt, however, that we end up trying to piece together this astonishing saga over the phone. It is precisely how she communicates with her new husband. She hasn't seen him in the flesh since they tied the knot last autumn.

I ask if it isn't a rather bizarre way to conduct a marriage. She says: "Absolutely not. We can talk for hours and hours on the phone, and we do. We also have the internet, which is fantastic. Then there's the webcam. We both have great cameras, you see."

Word is that as soon as she can be reunited with her passport, Jane is off to Saudi Arabia and back into Omar's arms, although she refuses to confirm this, saying instead that she is "going abroad. That is all you need to know".

She concedes, though, that one day Saudi will be her ideal place to live.

"I would like to settle in Saudi with him. Of course, I'd keep my home in Cheshire - I am British, after all - but a woman's place is by her husband's side."

But doesn't he already have a home? And a wife and child?

"Yes, but I'd set up another home nearby, and he would come and go between the two. It is quite normal, really. I don't mind at all - why should I? I'm not jealous of his wife.

"I have spoken to her. Lots of married men in this country have girlfriends. At least he is being honest."

She says she talked to her husband yesterday, and he is as bemused as she is at the headlines their marriage has generated. "He thinks it's been blown out of proportion, as I do," she says. "It's not that complicated, really. I fell in love with the man and I married him. What else is there to say? Who his father is doesn't come into the equation."

On one level, it's staggering that a Cheshire divorcÈe can get herself into this extraordinary position. Yet somehow, those who know Jane Felix-Browne aren't surprised.

Hers has been, by any standards, an eyebrow-raising life. She says herself that she doesn't do convention.

Her last husband may have been an RAC patrolman, but you get the impression that such mundanity was never part of Jane's grand plan.

"Well, what can I say? Lots of people live in a three-bed semi, go to work, have two kids and are happy with that. I never aspired to that sort of life."

Actually, she seems worryingly in her element in the limelight. I ask how she has been coping with the pressure - meaning the intense strain of knowing your every move will now be documented, whether by the press or the security services.

She misses the point. "I'm doing fine. Nothing really fazes me. I'm pretty good on live TV, as you've probably seen."

Halfway through our interview, I make a comment about her father-in-law inspiring the biggest manhunt in history. She laughs. For a day at least, she has elbowed Daddy-in-law out of the picture.

"Actually, I think the biggest manhunt in history is for me today. Everyone is after me. They're not bothered about him."

IF MI6 agents routinely listen in on Jane Felix-Browne's conversations - as she rather grandly assumes they do - they must want to tear their hair out.

She can talk for England on Millsand-Boon topics like love at first sight and true romance, but is woefully evasive on such matters as her own name. The new Mrs Bin Laden found names irritating long before she acquired her most notorious one.

She snorts as she admits that she came into the world as Paula Joy Hanson. She hated the Paula bit.

"I meet people with the name Paula now, and I have to say 'That's a nice name' because I don't want to be rude. But I hated it. I didn't have a happy childhood and I wanted to be rid of that name as soon as possible because it had such bad connotations."

She won't say what was so terrible about her childhood, but whatever it was, she concedes, affected everything. "I think what happened to me affected every relationship I've been in. I found it difficult to trust men, always have."

With hindsight, maybe just calling herself Joy, her middle name, would have solved the problem. But no. She declared that she would henceforth be known as Jane Felix-Browne. Why? "I liked it. Why not?" she replies.

She gets tetchy when she talks about taking her husbands' names.

"For a while I called myself Wakefield (during her marriage to John Wakefield). Then when I married Andrew Yeomans, he wanted me to take his name, too. I said: 'Enough with these bloody names.'"

Somewhere along the way, she also acquired the name Zaina Mohamad al Sabah - presumably when she converted to Islam as a teenager?

"I never said I converted," she exclaims angrily. She won't elaborate, but has previously claimed Arabic parentage. Her parents are reported as being a George and Beryl Hanson. She refuses to clear up the matter.

"My religion is a very private matter. It doesn't matter how I became a Muslim. Only that my Islamic faith is very important to me."

For all the holes in Jane's story - all of which give the impression that even she doesn't know who she is - we do know that she was a Muslim by the time she got married for the first time, at the age of 16.

This union - like her current one - was an Islamic religious marriage not recognised in law. She won't name the man, but tells me that the pressures of trying to have it formally recognised in this country helped destroy it.

That, however, was not an excuse she could use for the collapse of four subsequent legal marriages - all to non-Muslims.

The first was to fur-cutter Anthony Lomas in 1979, followed by Hell's Angel John Metcalfe, electronics company boss John Wakefield, then RAC man Andrew Yeomans. She talks a little about why each marriage collapsed, concluding that the only common denominator was a clash of cultures - between her faith and their way of life.

"All my husbands after that had a problem with my faith,' she says. 'None of them understood how important it was to my life."

Rather routine family demands also seemed to get in the way. "I had two children in my second marriage, Vincent, now 28, and Dean, 27, but I was ill and in hospital a lot. My husband couldn't cope with the situation.

"With the third, well, I think I went into that one because I wanted to be with someone. You change, you know. You grow up and finally realise what you want."

When she did get the chance to travel - when her children had grown up and she found herself single again - she fell in love with the Middle East, mainly because the culture was so entwined with her adopted Islamic faith.

"I've been described as this person with a very jet-set life. That wasn't true. Until ten years ago, my focus was at home, with my children."

Fifteen years ago, however, she says she was diagnosed with MS, and in the past decade has travelled regularly to Egypt for experimental treatment which involves being in an oxygen chamber. The bohemian lifestyle she enjoyed there was hugely appealing.

It was while on a horse-riding holiday to the Pyramids that she met the darkly handsome Omar. She was embarrassingly smitten and, strangely, the mention of his surname didn't have her running away screaming.

"Of course I knew who he was. Someone told me before he did - but I said 'So what?' When Omar and I talked at length, he asked me if I knew the name. I said: 'Of course.'

"He asked if it was OK, and I said yes, fine. I'm not the sort of person who is fazed by anything, and I truly believe that someone is innocent until proven guilty, so I wasn't about to start judging his father.

"What is that famous saying? 'One should never revisit the sins of the father on the son.'"

Still, on a purely practical level, it can't really be the stuff of dreams to marry someone who, she admits, is penniless and unable to get a decent job because of his name.

She scoffs at her critics who say she is just another naive, middle-aged British woman who has let herself be flattered by a young man with an eye on a cosy life in the UK.

"Look, he doesn't need me to get a visa to come to England. All he needs to do is go to the British Embassy in Saudi. It's ridiculous to say he is using me for that. London is full of Bin Ladens. Many of his uncles and aunts are here."

She also rejects claims that there is something suspect about a handsome young man like Omar being interested in her.

"Why is it ok for a 50-year-old man to marry a 20-year-old woman, but when a woman wants to be with a younger man it's seen as scandalous?"

Maybe she can weather the criticisms of strangers, but what of her own children and grandchildren? How on earth has she explained this one to them?

"My children adore Omar," she says expansively. "He is wonderful with them. He is the same age as my sons Vincent and Dean and he is like their best friend.

"In fact, it was my youngest son who signed the marriage papers. To make it official, he had to go with Omar and say he was giving me away. He was happy to do so. Why would he not be?"

I ask if her husband is proud of his name. "Yes, he is proud of his family."

Even his father? "I don't know. I have never asked him. But I know he was particularly proud of his grandfather Mohamed."

There is much confusion about the last time Omar actually saw his father. Some reports say they fell out after the attack on the World Trade Centre in a row about political 'tactics'.

Jane insists the pair have not spoken "since 2000 or early 2001". Whatever, she says the loss grieves her husband. "Of course, he loves his father. He misses him dreadfully, like any son would. Until someone proves him guilty, how can he stop that?"

Omar's military training in the Middle East - as part of his father's grand plan - seems to be of little consequence to Jane.

I ask if she accepts that he must once have shared his father's political beliefs.

"How do we know what his father's political views were?' she asks. 'How can we say? All I know is that my husband is not an extremist.

"He is not a fanatic. He is very peaceful and loving. He is not anti-Western in any way - how could he be when he married me?"

Jane has some strong political views of her own, albeit ones based on a hazy understanding of history. She says she is proud to be British. I ask her if she is proud of the so-called War on Terror being waged in her name.

"No, I am not proud of that, in the same way that I am not proud of the situation with the Irish, or when we went into the Falklands. Why should we have the right to take over countries and not give them back? We are a very arrogant nation."

And at that, she is off. Her passport has been returned - with security guards clearly concluding that she is a danger only to herself - and her flight is being called. The world beyond a Cheshire village beckons, and she is loving every deluded minute of it.

Here is a link to the IND website (if you have a sufficient span of attention to take a look) you may find some of the information therein quite interesting:-

http://www.bia.homeoffice.gov.uk/lawandpolicy/immigrationrules/

If your were to develop a less "weather vane" style of journalism you may find that you get taken seriously - accuracy surely is your stock-in-trade but unfortunately you allow your hate for anything Islamic to continuously cloud your judgement.

What a load of shit this whole story. The alleged article/editorial/character assassination of a woman who may have a few issues but seems to know how to enjoy herself, something I respect. So what if she wants a bit of sand sausage.

I mean, for fucks sake, is this journalism?

“Today, she is taking family loyalty to a somewhat improbable level, insisting again that the Bin Laden patriarch might just be innocent. With a jaw-dropping combination of stupidity and naivety, she says in her best school ma'am voice, when I raise the question of the Twin Towers: "I mean, do you know - beyond all doubt - that he did it?”

Her question is a valid one. Has anyone in the public arena seen the proof? And at least one person appears to be denying any involvement, OBL himself.

Hellooow, the dailymail is a Brit tabloid.

And pvt whinging: I'm seriously starting to doubt your claims of being English and a native speaker. Where did I ever mention visas? An "in" into the UK means far, far more than a visa. If I wanted to write visa, I would've typed in the letters v-i-s-a.

The dailymail is about as credible as the Jakpost, since you have had associations with the Post then you are as qualified as anyone to judge what a bag of shit it is.

What the fuck are you rabitting out :-

"Where did I ever mention visas? An "in" into the UK means far, far more than a visa. If I wanted to write visa, I would've typed in the letters v-i-s-a. "

How do you know what an "in" is? I have residences there and I don't understand what you are crapping on about.

To get in he needs a S-P-O-N-S-O-R ( I typed "sponsor" because I meant "sponsor") - now let us assume that he won't manage to get a diplomatic post because his father is alleged to have ruined some perfectly serviceable skyscrapers in NY, what is left? Well , if he hadn't already got a wife then Mrs. BL could have sponsored him, but as a second wife, she cannot do this . As Mrs.BL mentions, the boy already has plenty of family in London to invite him, but it is highly unlikely that the V-i-s-a would be issued in the first place and in the second place the immigration officer would never let him in.

Now, why don't you explain what an "in" is?

The "Bin Laden" family et all are probably the biggest civil/mechanical/ electrical contrator in Saudi!

There is a family who travel at "will" and "to their shame" (sic)perform many contracts for UK companies within the kingdom on a daily basis!

Some families have their "black sheep" Business rises above them!

the Daily Mail tabloid's "exclusive" saga continues -- and gets a bit juicier...

Mrs Bin Laden's sex secrets laid bare
Last updated at 22:57pm on 14th July 2007
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=468481&in_page_id=1770

Isolated: Mrs Bin Laden, Jane Felix-Browne is stuck in Egypt, distraught about her lack of money and failing health

In a tearful and confused phone call to The Mail on Sunday, the British woman who has become Osama Bin Laden's daughter-in-law cast new light on her life since her marriage in April.

Speaking from a villa in Cairo, which she regularly visits for treatment for multiple sclerosis, Mrs Bin Laden said: 'I need money to get to England and I need to see a good lawyer. I don't have any money. My husband doesn't have any money.

'I am not with my husband now [he is in Saudi Arabia] but we haven't split up. But I need a good lawyer. I'll come home if someone finds the money to pay for it.

'I am very upset at the moment. People are saying such horrible things. I am not a weak person but there is only so much a person can take.'

Jane Felix-Browne, a 51-year-old mother of three and grandmother of five from Cheshire, was last week revealed to be the daughter-in-law of the most wanted man in the world.

She married 27-year-old scrap dealer Omar Bin Laden in an Islamic ceremony after a whirlwind romance that began with a holiday in Egypt last September. Omar is the son of Osama Bin Laden, but has not seen his father for seven years.

When Jane's story broke, she said: 'I married the man I met and fell in love with. To me he is just Omar. He is the most beautiful person I have ever met. His heart is pure, he is pious, quiet, a true gentleman and he is my best friend.'

But it seems that, since then, life as Mrs Bin Laden has proved far from idyllic. And yesterday she emotionally revealed her desperation in the face of failing health, flagging funds and the inescapable stigma of her husband's parentage.

She said: 'To anyone who wants to give me £10million, I will give my full life story. I never wanted to sell my story but everyone is saying the most awful things about me.

'Nobody knows everything about my life. My story is worth it because I am married to the son of Osama Bin Laden. Omar doesn't have any money so I will provide for him. He is my husband and he is suffering because of all this. 'My children are suffering. But this money will not be for me. It will be for other people. I am writing a book and I intend to make a film. But at the moment I am desperately short of money.'

Mrs Bin Laden also revealed fears for her personal safety: 'I am so ill, I have to go to hospital now. I need somewhere I am safe. I'm sure Omar would come here to help me if he could. He's a dear, sweet man but he's got no money.

'I know I am an intriguing woman. I can't change my life and I'm not going to lie about it either. I know I can turn a lot of fellas on but I try not to be like that. My MS has made me all but celibate now anyway. But the authorities don't want me here in Egypt. I have to find somewhere to stay.

'I just want to go home but, of course, it's impossible. God knows what's going to happen in the future. What's my life going to be like?'

For Jane this is the latest, and darkest, chapter of a turbulent life that has encompassed six marriages, many lovers, a change of name and various incarnations.

Her own background is murky. She was born in 1946 in Lowestoft, Suffolk, as Paula Joy Hanson, the second child of mechanic George Hanson and his wife Beryl. She has an older brother, David.

Yesterday she claimed her childhood was the root of problems that have dogged her adult life. Jane, now a practising Muslim who also goes by the name Zaina Mohama al Sabah, said: 'People ask me why I get married all the time and I say it's because of my childhood.

'At 11 years old, I started running away from home because I was beaten by an uncle. I was taken to a children's court in Manchester and they sent me to a residential unit where I spent nine months. My problems stem from those times.'

The problems are many – as are the ex-husbands. At just 16, she married a Saudi man in an Islamic ceremony in London, though there is no record of this.

In 1979, she married Anthony Lomas, a furrier based in Manchester. They had two sons – Vincent, now 28, and Dean, 27.

But the marriage quickly foundered with Jane's infidelity. She embarked on an affair with a man whom she and Lomas met through a shared interest in CB radios – former Hell's Angel Peter Dakin, now 51 and living in Manchester.

He recalled: 'Her CB radio handle was Ebony Queen because of her long, dark hair. But she should have been called Evil Witch after the way she treated me.'

Dakin and Jane embarked on a passionate affair. At the time, he was a member of the notorious bikers' chapter, Satan's Slaves, based in Prestwich, Manchester. 'She made the first moves,' he recalled. 'She always made it clear that whatever she wanted she would get. She was a very determined lady.'

The affair was discovered when Jane's husband overheard them talking on CB radio. Lomas moved out, leaving Jane and their sons – then just 18 months and less than a year old – and Dakin moved in. 'She always liked money and nice things,' Dakin recalled. 'We kept several horses, including an Arab mare and a stallion, and she became an expert rider. She told me she had changed her name from Paula to Jane. Perhaps she was trying to hide from her past.'

She even adopted the title 'Lady' – an aristocratic affectation that dovetailed into her desire to be part of the Cheshire set, riding her horses, wearing fine clothes and living out a fantasy rather at odds with her biker-moll status.

Members of the Cheshire set would surely blanch at the spider's web tattoo across her back. But to Dakin 'she was a gorgeous-looking woman. She would turn people's heads and our relationship was terrific in every way. 'But we began to mistrust each other. I worked as a labourer and she would turn up at building sites and sit in her car, staring at me. Then we began to argue.'

The relationship came to a furious end when Jane slept with Peter Dakin's younger brother Keith – seducing the 18-year-old in a hayloft.

According to Keith, now 39: 'I was just a lad and she was 31. She took advantage of me and it almost destroyed my family. She told me she had been a high-class call girl. She said she had done a lot of business with Middle Eastern men and an Arab prince.'

Peter Dakin said: 'I last saw her in 1986 in a pub with a group of friends. One of them was another biker, Metcalfe.

'She looked straight at me and said if I did not go home with her she was going to marry him. I didn't want any more to do with her and the next I heard they'd married.'

John Metcalfe, now happily remarried and living in Lancashire, is amused to learn how he fits into the jigsaw that is his ex-wife's hectic love life.

'Hearing about her other husbands is fascinating,' he said. 'It seems I was just another mug along the way.'

Back then, Metcalfe was the secretary and treasurer of Satan's Slaves and Jane was a hard-drinking, high-living woman. They met when she arrived on her 125cc motorcycle to sort out a problem with a car she had loaned to a friend. Metcalfe was a passenger and it was, according to him, 'love at first sight'.

'We only courted for three weeks. I was smitten by her. She told me she was part Jewish – I don't know how that sits with her new husband – and had a half-sister. She also claimed to have a secret son called David, who would now be in his 30s. She told me she had worked as a prostitute in London, using the name Jane Felix-Browne.

'I was shocked, but I believed that her confession was her way of atoning for her past. But she always told the bare minimum of truth, embellished with fiction and fantasy.

'We had a massive biker wedding that made the local paper under the headline, “Satan's bride Paula is slave to love”.

'I fell for her big time and I believed she loved me. I even gave up the Slaves for her and brought her sons Vincent and Dean to live with us. I was their stepfather.'

But their happiness was short-lived. According to Metcalfe: 'The marriage went downhill rapidly when the sex suddenly stopped. What had been fantastic suddenly petered out.

'She is the sort of woman who can turn on the sexual charm to suit her own ends. It is there purely as a means to an end. And once she loses interest, she just turns it off.

'Towards the end, it was a nightmare. I was often left at home with her children and she would stay out late and then not bother coming home at all. I was just an unpaid skivvy. We separated and went our own ways. She was an enigma and I could never work her out.

'I believe she has married the son of Osama Bin Laden to seek attention. But I wonder now if she has attracted the sort of attention that she really wants.'

Another old flame, Alan Shuttleworth, received a surprise phone call from Jane last week at the furniture factory he runs in Bolton, Lancashire. She wanted to know whether the media had been in contact with him, because they went out for three years in the early Nineties after she had split from Metcalfe.

Shuttleworth, 52, said: 'I was astonished she should ring me, but she was friendly. I said to her, “It's blown up in your face this time, hasn't it?” and she laughed and said, “You know what I'm like.”

Recalling their time together, he said: 'She was a real looker and very fun-loving. We just clicked in a big way. She used the name Lady Jane then, and even had it on her driving licence and credit card. I was besotted with her. She was very attractive.

'I didn't want to become another of her husbands. I got off lightly. All that her ex-husbands say about her is right. You never knew where you were with her. She is persuasive and manipulative. I can see how the dreams turn into nightmares.'

Despite Jane's string of failed relationships, there were to be other men in her life. Husband number four was John Wakeman, whom she married in February 1993.

According to the 46-year-old electronics company boss, she was 'nutty and stupid' and put a sex ban on their union after just six weeks. Yesterday, Jane responded angrily to his words but admitted: 'I told John I just wanted him as a friend rather than a husband. I just couldn't sleep with him.'

The marriage disintegrated and Jane moved into a three-bedroom house in Weaverham, Cheshire. She developed an interest in drag racing, which led to her meeting husband number five, RAC patrolman Andrew Yeomans, then 23. She was 17 years his senior when they married at the Rheingold Riverside Inn in Northwich in September 1996. Recalling that brief marriage last night, Jane said: 'Andy's parents objected to me because I was nearly 20 years older than him. By this time my MS was getting worse and I had to impose a sex ban. That's when things started going wrong again.'

Of all the problems she has encountered in life so far, the interference of in-laws is not something Mrs Bin Laden is likely to be troubled with in marriage number six.

This woman needs more than money or doctors, she needs a fucking EXORCIST! She is clearly possessed by the Devil himself. Serious fucking demonic possession.

We know! You should have asked for excorcism, not circumcision last time you went to the doctor.

"She married 27-year-old scrap dealer Omar Bin Laden in an Islamic ceremony after a whirlwind romance that began with a holiday in Egypt last September. Omar is the son of Osama Bin Laden, but has not seen his father for seven years."

It has to be said that Osama certainly provided Omar with a huge business opportunity for scrap some time back if all the hype is to be believed .
