Charles Bronson wrote to ex-wife Paula Williamson a day before she died telling her to give up alcohol
The 38-year-old ‘Corrie’ actress was found dead at her home in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, after a suspected drug overdose on July 29.
Charles Bronson, England’s most notorious convict, reportedly wrote to ex-wife Paula Williamson the day before she passed away. The 66-year-old, born Michael Gordon Peterson, ended their nine-month marriage in 2018 but the two reportedly stayed in touch.
According to Mirror, Bronson allegedly warned the former ‘Corrie’ actress that she would be dead in two years if she didn’t give up alcohol. The 38-year-old was found dead at her home in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, after a suspected drug overdose on July 29.
According to the Sun Online, Williamson wanted a "princess daughter" with her current boyfriend, 53-year-old Peter Jones, who discovered her body. He said: "We were hoping for a baby and we were already trying to conceive naturally. She never thought about babies before me. We wanted two, mainly she wanted a girl to dress up like a princess. She was an amazing woman. She knew some bad people like Charlie. She’d do anything for anyone and she would’ve been a fantastic mum and wife."
Jones told reporters that he hopes to lay his lover to rest on what would have been her 39th birthday, on August 19. The truck driver reportedly said that Williamson had been hoping to celebrate the occasion with a big barbecue bash.
"I was going to buy her some jewelry and a ring," he added. Jones revealed that the couple had kept their relationship quiet, but Williamson wanted to let Bronson know she had a new man in her life out of respect to him.
"Before we announced to everybody, she wanted to tell Charlie about me first, out of respect, which I completely agreed with,” said Jones. "If Charlie wanted to meet me, I would quite happily visit. He always said to Paula - good luck in life and I hope you find someone who will be able to look after you properly. Paula always thought it might be nice for me and him to meet, so he could see that she had met a genuine man who she loved very much. Charlie being her ex didn’t bother me. I can’t fault him, he was never nasty. I’d like to think we could've become friends. The first person she wanted to tell about us getting married was Charlie. I had respect for him."
The news of Williamson’s death was broken to Bronson in his cell at HMP Woodhill, Buckinghamshire. He immediately called his mother, 88-year-old Eira, who reportedly said: “I could tell Charlie was upset. He’d only written to her the day before. He never said a bad word about her. They just split up because she took drugs. I was very sad to hear about Paula as she was a nice girl. We kept in touch.”
Bronson is currently romancing a 63-year-old Joan Collins lookalike from Manchester.
