How much money did Julia Wandelt make from media appearances?
After the interview on US TV, many social media users asked the duo whether they had received any money for their media presence. In her Instagram Story, Johansson said, "Hello guys - about Dr Phil if we made money... no. We didn’t actually get a dime to be involved with Dr Phil’s show." She added, "We didn’t receive anything, Julia [didn’t] receive anything, Julia just went on the stage and was herself and told the truth. A lot of you ask if Julia made some sort of money by going to any type of press, Radar for example, all other things… no. We did not pay them anything, they did not pay us anything."
What did Julia Wandelt claim in her interview with 'Dr Phil'?
“I believe I am Madeleine McCann,” Wandelt said in the show. She also added, “I never saw my birth certificate and I didn’t take pictures.” Johansson said in the show that she had driven to the hospital where the woman’s mom said she gave birth to her. “We didn’t find anything and they said, ‘We don’t have any here’. So we went to another hospital and they said the same thing, ‘We don’t have any here’. So we go to the third one and they said, ‘We don’t have any,’” Johansson said.
Further, Wandelt said, “If she is my mother, I don’t want to have contact with her that’s all, but I believe she isn’t my mother." She also explained a blurred memory from her childhood. She said, "Beach and water, like sea or ocean, and there were turtles and children … and I remembered light-colored buildings, like white or very light colors, sunlight on this buildings."
She also explained how she was sexually abused by a man named Peter Ney. “I believe that (Peter) can be related to Martin Ney, Martin Ney was suspected in Madeleine McCann case and Martin Ney is an international child trafficker, serial killer,” Johanson said, adding, “Julia’s mum refused to do a DNA test and she refused to answer any of calls, texts or other communication. When we made up stories normally, we may going to have some changes in the middle because that is not a true story. All stories that Wandelt said about those memories, those thoughts, those images, those visions, it was exact the same," as per SKY News.
