Woman Jack Sparrow impersonator who married 300-year-old pirate ghost has broken up with him and now wants a divorce
46-year-old Amanda Sparrow Large tied the knot with her ghost groom on international waters in a boat that sailed from Ireland so that their marriage would be legal
A woman Jack Sparrow impersonator, who got married to a 300-year-old Haitian ghost pirate earlier this year has called it quits and cited concerns over spirits as the reason. 46-year-old Amanda "Sparrow" Large got married to the ghost who is also called Jack in January but she has called it off and said: "My marriage is over". The unusual pair tied the knot on international waters in a boat that sailed from Ireland so that their marriage would be legal.
According to the Mirror, however, Amanda wrote on social media: "I will explain all in due course but for now all I want to say is be VERY careful when dabbling in spirituality, it’s not something to mess with." During the ceremony that took place last year, a psychic said "I do" on behalf of the 18th Century ghost groom.
Amanda has also claimed that having sex with a spirit is as fulfilling as having sex with a human. She said: "It is well known that people often feel a spirit touch their hands, their face or their hair. The only difference with having a sexual relationship with a spirit is obviously that sense of touch goes a lot deeper. You can feel the weight of the spirit, their touch, the pressure. You can literally feel the physical act of what the spirit is doing to you, and the spirit can feel it too."
Amanda recently spoke to the Rainbow Project about her asexuality and said that she "grew up in a small village in Ireland and sexuality was totally taboo".
The previously married mother-of-five said that she had never before felt a connection so strong to anyone like how she did with her ghost husband. According to the woman, Jack was left at the altar when he was alive. The Haitian pirate had been put to death in his earlier life. The couple's doomed relationship started in 2014, when she claimed she felt his presence, and the two of them eventually started talking and got to know each other very well. She explained: "The more I learned about him, the more I liked him."
In 2015, the woman legally changed her name to Amanda Sparrow and spent more than £4,000 transforming herself into Captain Jack Sparrow from Disney's hit franchise, 'Pirates of the Caribbean'. She made the change after she watched the films for the first time when her 13-year-old daughter said that she was just like Johnny Depp's iconic character.
Amanda even went and got tattoos just like the rum-drinking pirate and got the dreadlocks and gold-plated teeth as well so that she could look like him. She then set up the impersonator business based on the look. Amanda said: "My daughter Carla Rose screamed in front of the TV 'Mum you are so much like Jack Sparrow!' and I was like - 'who is Jack Sparrow?' I settled down to watch 15 minutes with her because it was on Sky and I was instantly hooked."
She continued: "The way he gets on with life, his freedom, and his walk is so much like me in personality - I'm quite masculine and have that sense. The way he deals with things is identical to me. I just really related to him."
