  • [01] She Sold His Lotus for 50p!

    By Despina Hristopoulou

    Revenge is sweet, and the wife of a controversial radio DJ was very well aware of that. The lady in question taught her husband a lesson, who blatantly flirted with a model on air. As the British newspaper Metro reports, the culprits name was Tim Shaw, and the root of the trouble Jodie Marsh. Kerrang 105.2s radio DJ told the model he was willing to leave his wife and his two kids for her shake. To his misfortune, his wife, being his shows fun, heard her husbands promises to Ms Marsh. She did not sit idly, and she immediately posted an advert for the Lotus Esprit Turbo, which cost 38,000 pounds, for 50p. The item description read: "I need to get rid of this car in the next two to three hours before my husband gets home to find it gone and all his belongings in the street." As it was expected, the car was sold within five minutes.

    She Has Had Enough

    This was not the first time Shaw had driven his wife mad. In the past, when she was pregnant, he had rung her sister live on air and said he thought about her while having sex with his wife.

    However, the latest incidence was the last straw, and disgusted by her husbands inconsiderate behaviour, she decided to take revenge.

    She explained that the car was his pride, but since her name was on the log book, she decided to get him back. She also added that there was no hope for a reconciliation.

    Her husband, on the other hand, is really disappointed, said a Kerrang 105.2 spokesperson.
