World's Worst Father Fakes His Death After Siring Nine Kids
Apr 18, 2011 09:51
Keith Macdonald, better known as "Britain's Most Feckless Dad' has reportedly tried to fake his own death in a bid to shirk responsibility for his ninth child, his ex has claims. MacDonald's is infamous for having done almost everything he can to escape responsibility for the children he's sired with eight different women:
With a ninth child on the way, the binman's son was desperate to avoid paying out any more than the £5 a week he currently gives towards each of his other children.
He sent a text message to his pregnant former girlfriend Clare Bryant, 22, telling her: 'Keith is dead.'
Miss Bryant, who already has a one-year-old daughter by MacDonald, rang his mobile phone, but there was no answer. She then called the local hospitals and the police, but to no avail.
Two weeks passed before Miss Bryant found out that 25-year-old MacDonald was, in fact, alive and well. He sent her a message to apologise and told her that he wanted to 'get away from his life'.
Last night an unrepentant MacDonald admitted that he had pretended to be dead, saying: 'I get so much hassle from everybody.'
He then tried to blame Miss Bryant for starting the rumour. 'It all came from Clare, she started it off. I thought I may as well just go along with it.'
MacDonald, who is paid £44 a week in income support and has never held down a permanent job, denies fathering all but one of his children on the grounds that they have different hair colour from him.
