Jade Goody’s dying wish 'denied as son’s money taken by taxman'


Jack Tweed, who married a month before she died, has spoken out on his anger 10 years after her death.

The now 31-year-old was only 21 when he married the mother-of-two who was 27 when she tragically lost her fight to cervical cancer.

The news of Jade’s passing shocked the nation after she tragically died on Mother’s Day, leaving behind her two children Bobby and Freddie.

For years Jack has stayed out of the spotlight and not publicly talked about Jade who rose to fame after she appeared on in 2002 which led to her appearing on Celebrity Big Brother in 2007.

Speaking to The Sun, Jack claimed that Jade’s dying wish was denied as the money she desperately raised during the months leading to her death had vanished.

Before she died, Jade worked extra hard to make more money so she could leave enough to support her sons and pay for their tuition fees for private school.

But Jack is sure that the funds have come to nothing due to much of her legacy being lost to the taxman.

“It would have broken Jade if she’d known”

Jade’s fortune was collected by the taxman after she failed to pay £1.8m worth of income tax during the four years before she died.

Jack said: “It would have broken Jade if she’d known. She’d be devastated. I’ve never been able to get my head round it — the person’s dead.

“I don’t want to accuse anyone because I don’t know the full story but something doesn’t seem right. Something doesn’t add up.”

Bobby, 15, still remains in private education in Essex, and Freddie, 14, is now at a state school after he struggled to fit in at his private school due to his ADHD.

Jack continued: “I probably should have been more involved with the money situation, seeing where it all went and making sure the kids got it and it didn’t get wasted by anyone.

“But it didn’t feel right for me to get involved in that at the time.”

“I thought, ‘My wife’s died, I don’t care about the money, it just doesn’t make a difference’.”
