Rebekah Shelton has spoken out for the first time following the chaos after a fake death announcement was posted on her Twitter account.

Fans and followers were shocked and saddened when a tweet appeared on the former Big Brother star’s own account announcing that Rebekah had passed away on 12th January.

The post read: “We’re sorry to inform everyone of the sad news that our wonderful and lovely Rebekah died unexpectedly on Wednesday night.

“We ask that you respect the family’s privacy at this time.”

Hours later Rebekah shared a video on Twitter to prove she was not, in fact, dead.

“I’m not dead!!!!!! Please stop spreading this news!!!!! My lawyer is already working on this and this person who wants to spoil my happiness is going to pay for it!!!!!” she captioned the video.

Now she’s claimed that her lover’s bitter wife is to blame for the whole ‘hoax’.

“I’m currently having a romance with a married American guy and he’s rich, he’s a billionaire,” she told The Sun Online.

“He treats me like a queen, flies me business class, we stay in five-star hotels, he dines me Michelin star restaurants and pays for my lifestyle.”

She also revealed that the problem is his wife ‘knows everything’.

“She’s the stalker; the one who posted the tweet,” she explained, then added: “She used my Twitter account to announce to my fans that I was dead.”

Rebekah – who appeared on Big Brother in 2009 when she was known as Rodrigo Lopes – had been on holiday in Qatar when she shared the video to confirm she wasn’t actually dead.
