Imogen Thomas Did Not Try To Blackmail Mystery Footballer

by | 15th, December 2011

IMOGEN Thomas will not be tried for alleged blackmail. The footballer has accepted that there was no basis with with to charge her with blackmail. Thomas says he feels “vindicated“.

It was alleged that the Big Brother contestant had blackmailed a Premier League player. At the High Court, Mr Justice Eady imposed a gagging order preventing the naming of the married footballer.

And we can’t name him. The injunction remains in place.

Eady did say this morning: “There is no longer any point in maintaining the anonymity.”

No point. But it stays. Thomas’s lawyer never asked for it to be revoked. Why?

The law really is a joke.

Says Thomas:

“To suddenly have to defend my character, because of this legal process, has been extremely upsetting and stressful. I’m just relieved that the parties and the court now accept that I’m no blackmailer. I have been vindicated and that’s all I wanted. I have nothing to add – it’s all behind me now.”

But if the injunction should be lifted..?
