Jade Goody’s Family is With Her

By: Betsy Waldman / March 13, 2009

Jade Goody‘s relatives and friends, among them her grandparents, have gathered at her Essex home to comfort the cancer-stricken reality star.

Goody’s grandparents arrived from Bermondsey in South London and spoke to Jade’s mother Jackie Budden before leaving.

The familial visit was accompanied by good news for Goody and her husband—Jack Tweed‘s curfew has been lifted and he will be able to spend two nights a week with his wife, who is  suffering from cervical cancer.

Tweed was recently convicted on assault charges and is normally restricted to house arrest at his mother’s home, but the Governor of Wayland Prison has relaxed the strictures for Jade’s benefit. He will now be allowed to stay with her on Thursday and Saturday nights, according to the Daily Mirror.

“[Goody] wants to spend as much time with Jack and her two sons as she possibly can. At the moment every hour is precious,” Goody’s publicist, Max Clifford, said.
