A bride has claimed she was brutally dumped by her fiancé just a week before their wedding day.
Emily Nicholson, 24, was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in 2016 and was told by doctors that she had a year to live. Emily and her partner, Jamie Smith, decided to get married but had to wait until the following March while she underwent treatment.
But the bar manager and club promoter from York, who now lives in Perth, Australia, has alleged that her other half left her on the morning of his stag do, and gave her the heartbreaking news over social media.
As reported by metro.co.uk, Emily said: ‘Jamie messaged me and said he didn’t want to be with me and he hadn’t loved me for a long time.
‘It was horrendous. He made it very clear that he didn’t love me. I felt it was because of the way I looked and what had happened.’
As a result of her medication, Emily gained five stone in six weeks and believes that her relationship may have ended as a result of her weight.
‘Now I don’t feel anything about him, he hurt me but there’s no point getting upset over it, I’ve just had to be strong about it all. For months he’d been going out with his friends but obviously I couldn’t do that.
‘We were looking to build our lives together in the time we had left.’
However, Jamie denied that this was the case, saying: ‘It was the other way around, she actually left me, I never left her. And, secondly, I never left her for anything to do with her weight gain.
‘If that was the case I would have left her months before we split up, because she started putting weight on before that. It had nothing to do with that at all.’
Emily’s mum and full-time carer Joanne Nicholson, 51, claims that Jamie still went on his stag do despite calling off the wedding.
She said: ‘I was angry at him, but as time has gone on I’m not anymore. He was lovely, he was a really nice lad and it got to the point where she couldn’t go out and she was getting bigger.
‘When you go through something like this, life is too short to hate anyone – he did his best but I don’t blame him, it got too much for him.’
