Louise Chesney’s besotted fiancé Paul whisked her off to Jamaica
to plan their dream beach wedding.
She was so in love and says she couldn’t wait to marry her perfect man.
just days into their holiday, handsome local hotel worker Caffrey Brown
caught her eye. And one night, after Paul had retired to bed with a
headache, they shared a kiss.
Weeks later, Louise, 24, stunned family and friends by calling off her engagement to heartbroken Paul, 48.
She claims Caffrey, 25, had promised to marry her instead, and love-struck Louise began to plan a life with him in the UK.
She says she spent thousands of pounds on her new beau after she fell for his stories that his family was penniless.
All the while she spent hours filling in paperwork to secure him a
temporary visa.Meanwhile, she also suffered the agony of a miscarriage
and the disapproval of her family.
suddenly Louise claims she discovered that her Caribbean Casanova had
been cheating on her with two other women. She was left distraught,
homeless and fearing bankruptcy.She tells UK Mirror
“I’ve been a complete fool,” she
says. “My family and friends all warned me he was using me for a visa,
but I was so blinded by love.
“I’ve lost everything – I’m
thousands of pounds in debt. Yet I’m still devastated at losing Caffrey
because I thought he was the love of my life.”
When her bank account ran dry, she racked up £3,000 in
credit card debt while buying gifts for Caffrey. She claims she spent
£10,000 on him.
Louise says: “Paul treated me like a princess,
but Caffrey turned my head and told me Paul was too old. Soon I could
barely afford to eat because I was sending all my money to him.
“Now I’m all alone. People might say it’s karma, but it still hurts.”

cook for me and run me a bath. We thought a Jamaican wedding would be

days into the holiday Louise, of Abingdon, Oxon, spotted Caffrey
walking along the beach in just his shorts, and the following evening he
“He shook my hand and instantly I felt what
seemed like a jolt of electricity,” she says. “I’ve never had a
connection like that with anyone before – even Paul.”
When she says Paul suffered a headache and went to bed, Caffrey invited her to a beach party.
“I couldn’t help myself,” she says. “The chemistry between us was insane. Then we kissed. I tried to resist, but I couldn’t.”
Tortured by guilt, Louise tried to avoid Caffrey for the remainder of
the holiday. But back in the UK, she says he sent her daily text
messages. And less than a month later, she ended things with Paul.In
November, she was reunited with Caffrey in Jamaica.
“We fell into each
other’s arms. That night, we made love for the first time and it was

proposal wasn’t as romantic as Paul’s. Caffrey got down on one knee and
handed me a plain silver band. But I didn’t care because I was so swept
up in the romance of it. Then he told me I had to buy him a ring too,
so girls would know he was taken. I handed over £300.”
When Caffrey was granted a temporary visa, Louise says she paid for

It was only a few weeks later in Jamaica that she
discovered he had also been seeing a Canadian girl. “I started throwing
things at him,” she says. “I was distraught. He tried to win me back but

unable to afford her rent. She had to move in with her brother, far

unable to pay her debts, she fears bankruptcy.
