Jade Goody reportedly broke down when she had to tell her sons she was dying
'Big Brother' star Jade Goody passed away in 2009 after suffering from cervical cancer. Her two sons with ex Jeff Brazier were 4 and 5 years old at the time of her death
Late Jade Goody's best friends revealed that she was "screaming and crying" after having to tell her sons that she was dying. The 'Big Brother' star passed away a decade ago on March 22, 2009 after suffering from cervical cancer.
Jade left behind two children, Bobby who is currently 15 and Freddie who is currently 14, whom she had with her ex Jeff Brazier. Her friends shared the only time they witnessed her "lose it" throughout her illness was after she had to have the unimaginably difficult conversation with her boys.
Her bridesmaids for her wedding to Jack Tweed included Charlene Steel, Jennifer Smith, Kelly Wyatt, Caroline Roberts and Kate Webb who have opened up around 10 years later.
Kate Webb spoke with Ok! magazine and said, "The moment she told her boys she was dying was the only time I saw her lose it. After they left the hospital room, she was screaming and crying. Her bridesmaids had planned each and every aspect of her wedding to Jack. Jennifer Smith added, "Only the five of us understand what it was like to go through that situation. We planned our best friend’s wedding at the same time we were planning her funeral. It bonded us forever."
Kate further added, "It was so heartbreaking but none of us actually believed she was going to die," while Charlene shared, "We thought Jade was invincible. I don’t think she ever really believed she was going to die either."
The girl pals also recalled one extremely heart-breaking memory and Kelly remembered speaking to The Sun, "We knew the end was near. Jade started giving us all instructions. At her funeral, she wanted, 'No drinking, everyone in black and everyone crying'," while Charlene revealed, "I was with her right up to the end. She’d wanted to write letters herself to Bobby and Freddie to open on their 18th but was too weak. It broke her heart. Her last words to me were, 'I love you'."
The women have remained true to their friend and have been looking out for her children ever since she passed. While marking the 10th anniversary of Jade's death, Jack Tweed revealed that he is in touch with Jade' son Bobby and Freddy who had been "asking about him." The boys' dad and Jade's ex-had banned Jack from seeing them post their mother's death but has now made exceptions.
As reported by DailyMail, Jack revealed, "Jeff stopped me from seeing the boys. At that time, I was getting into trouble and I was off the rails — so Jeff was probably right to do that. Now he’s seen I’ve sorted myself out, so he got in touch and said the boys had been asking about me. They came around to mine for tea and Jeff was there so it felt like an awkward first date!"
Jack and Jade tied the knot in 2009 after a three-year romance, only a month before she passed away.
