Jade Goody Confronted by Hammer-Wielding Whack-Job
Apparently, not everyone supports Jade Goody in her very public struggle with cancer.
Sky News reports that an unknown woman has been arrested after confronting the 27-year-old former Big Brother star, who is estimated to have just weeks to live, with a hammer in Goody’s hospital room at Marsden Royal Hospital in London yesterday.
According to Goody’s spokesperson, Max Clifford, her husband, Jack Tweedy, was visiting his wife at the time, but had ducked out momentarily to get a cup of tea in the hospital’s cafeteria.
And that’s when the uninvited, hammer, wielding intruder descended.
“[Goody] woke up to find this woman leaning over her,” Clifford says. “She was not hurt but was very shaken up as you can imagine.”
A statement by the Metropolitan Police reads, “We can confirm that police were called to the Royal Marsden Hospital Sunday afternoon by security to reports of an unknown woman being in a patient’s room…Officers attended and a 41-year-old woman was searched and found in possession of a hammer and was arrested for possession of an offensive weapon and taken into custody at a west London police station where she remains in custody.”
Goody had been resting up following her christening on Saturday. In what Clifford characterized as “a very short and emotional service,” Goody was christened with her two sons, five-year-old Bobby and Freddy, 4.
