Champagne swiller Dawn Ward “at war” with one-time friend and fellow WAG and cast member of ‘The Real Housewives of Cheshire’ Leanne Brown
Yesterday, The Sun on Sunday reported that a favourite of all at The Steeple Times, Dawn Ward, is “at war over a £500,000 loan”.
43-year old Mrs Ward, whose attempts at interior design at her naff Cheshire mansion have left it lingering on the market at the overly ambitious price of £12 million since 2015, is said to have borrowed the cash from Leanne Brown, a fellow footballer’s wife, in 2013 and hasn’t paid it back.
A “source” close to 40-year old Mrs Brown and her husband, Wes, 37, told The Sun on Sunday:
“Dawn asked to borrow the cash. They agreed, but with interest payable after six months”.
“It seems to them she took advantage of their kindness and has no intention of giving it back”.
“They spoke to solicitors and sent a legal letter spelling out their intention of taking her to court”.
“Leanne and Dawn used to be great friends, so it is a shame things have reached this point”.
“But her failure to pay back the loan has really soured their friendship, and now they feel they have no choice if they want to see their money again”.
“The tension between the pair during filming is palpable. Last week tempers flared [on the set of The Real Housewives of Cheshire] again and a glass was smashed”.
A spokesperson for champagne obsessed, Prosecco hating Mrs Ward, whose 2016 conviction for assault also made headlines, remarked:
“We have been friends for years and have completed many business deals together and everybody is aware that money is owed on both sides. We have tried to arrange a meeting to clear this up but the offer has not been accepted”.
