An ex-girlfriend who stalked the British pianist Karl Lutchmayer after he ended their six-month relationship has escaped being sent to jail after a court was told she he been hearing voices.

Karl Lutchmayer, 52, had broken up with Emily Bentley-Leek, 32, after things became too ‘intense’. He found someone else; she followed him around Oxford.

Bentley-Leek was handed a suspended sentence of 18 months and ordered to stay away from Oxford.

    Trust the Daily Mail to get in on it :
    “She sent pictures of herself in handcuffs….some of the messages included a photo of a shrine and nude photos of herself….. ‘ I walked into a bar, I saw the word “Bombardier” and I thought it was telling me to bombard so I sent him 20 questions’ “

    I’d like to hear her side of the story. The age difference could be a red flag.

    • Sue Sonata Form says:

      One thing you need to remember; women are perfect, never resort to trolling, stalking or manipulation and coercion and need to be believed. All the time.

      Well, that’s the Left’s narrative. For facts, those of us with life experience can tell a very different tale.

        Aye….indeed…laurels to the late and sadly missed Kingsley Amis;fnazis would throw him in jail as soon as his pen touched paper.Son still alive and scribbling but not,at all,missed.

      • Sue, no women are not perfect. And I am not. But I had a mental breakdown, and my accuser abused me to the point where I was suicidal. I invite you to learn the truth: arealstory.co.uk

    • Karl says:

      Great way to blame the victim. 52/2 + 7 = 33. And she is 32. That counts as rape now, doesn’t it?

        It is better if the girlfriend does not know
        Where you live. Or where you work.

        You are not the victim . You are the perpetrator. A narcissist and an abuser . If I were your parent which thankfully I am not I would be disgraced by you Mr KL .

      • Bl says:

        Mr Lutchmayer has damaged Emily beyond hurt and there is a backstory of abuse and selfishness that will come out . The truth that is .
