Casey Anthony Reconciles With Brother Lee, New Book Reveals (EXCLUSIVE)
Casey Anthony reportedly did not attend her brother Lee Anthony’s March wedding, but the acquitted murder suspect reconciled with him in the months prior to the nuptials.
At least, that’s the claim being made in a new book, titled #LiesLiesLies, Exposing Casey and Surviving the Smear.
“In early December she (Casey) met with Lee for the first time since her release,” self-published authors Amelia Noel Sobel and Myrah Nicole Young write, in their recently released tome about the 25-year-old cleared last year of killing her toddler daughter Caylee.
“The two had spoken on the phone and emailed frequently, but the first face-to-face encounter proved to be emotional," says the book, in a passage obtained exclusively by Celebuzz.
"Before Caylee’s death the siblings had been as close as a brother and sister could be. Sure, they had their issues, but they seemed to understand one another in ways that nobody else could. For Casey, reuniting with Lee was an important step to redeeming her “old self”.”
Casey was found not guilty on July 5, last year, after a jury of seven women and five men rejected the prosecution’s contention that she had murdered Caylee, 2, by dosing her with chloroform, suffocating her with duct tape and dumping her body in a wooded area.
During the trial, Lee Anthony testified that he didn't even know that Casey was pregnant until he happened to see her late one night as she emerged from their shared bathroom.
"I could see her midsection and it was showing," he testified. "I didn't expect it. I was like, 'What the hell is that?' and she waved me off."
As Celebuzz reported, the book claims Casey has also reunited with Cindy, her mother, but that her father, George, has “made a pledge to never speak to Casey again.”
#LiesLiesLies, Exposing Casey and Surviving the Smear also sheds new details on 25-year-old Casey’s new piercings that emerged in a video online in January.
Quoting unnamed sources, the authors claim that Casey got the piercings and her new look during a visit to the home of Stan Cure, a pastor in Palm City, Fla., who has helped her “reconnect with God and get her life ‘back on track.'”
She had decided she hated the blonde hair sometime in late October and taken again to the bottle of hair dye, going brunette once again. But brown become boring, too, and Casey decided to dye it red just before her trip away from home. She was driven north by her boyfriend, unable to drive herself.After the visit to the Cures’ home, Casey decided to record what would be her second entry to her ‘video diary’ -- the release of which caused a sensation when it was leaked in January.
For obvious reasons Casey was not just brought out in public freely. The Cures made sure she was on a schedule, that she helped with the chores and attended small church groups. The entire family "loved Casey to death", Stan's daughters becoming very close to her. Casey began to use her laptop to take pictures, videos, and talk to Stan Cure's daughters when she was back in West Palm Beach. It could have been assumed that Casey made her video diaries for her new-found friends, but that was ruled out when she mentioned Stan Cure's family in third-person in one of the recordings.
When Casey was permitted to spend an entire weekend with the Cures it was a chance to socialize much more than she was able to down south where she only had Pops to keep her company. In November Casey would spend a long weekend there, which is when she would go to a nearby tattoo shop and get new piercings. Casey was giddy with excitement as she received a piercing in her left nostril and chains of three down the lobe of each ear. When paired with her red hair and the new thick-rimmed, black glasses she had begun to wear, Casey felt almost like she fit right in.
“She sat in front of her laptop in her living room and gushed about how excited she was about her new piercings, showing them to the camera,” the book notes.
“She briefly talked about her weekend out and her new red hair, but quickly came back to the same topic she had spent nearly five-minutes of her first video diary talking about: change.”
