Julia Wandelt: Woman claiming to be Madeleine McCann learning Persian and taking song requests
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: The Polish woman who thinks she is the missing child, Madeleine McCann, is reportedly learning Persian as she takes song requests online. Julia Wandelt (also Julia Wendell/Faustyna) is currently under the wing of self-professed psychic and private investigator Fia Johansson in the US.
Wandelt, 21, was apparently flown out of Poland over safety-related concerns, and Johansson, 40, has since been trying to establish a new life for her. The medium is reportedly trying to offer the young woman a variety of life experiences, with the latest being Persian language lessons.

Julia Wandelt taking lessons in Farsi
According to Daily Star, Joahnsson moved from Iran to Sweden at the age of 14 but continues to speak the language. She is now giving Wandelt lessons in Persian, or Farsi. The private eye posted video footage of the pair and another pal, YouTuber Julie Louise, traveling in a car on her Instagram Stories. “After lives with Julie, I took Julia to lunch and teach her Persian language,” Johansson captioned the post, adding, “We still have the Persian new year so the song it’s about the spring.” All three women are seen in the clip singing passionately into the camera.
In another clip posted on Johansson's Instagram Stores, Wandelt was seen doing a solo performance for their followers.
Johansson posted the video with the caption, “She did that song for you as you asked her to sing," followed by a microphone emoticon.
The 21-year-old is seen in the clip singing a rendition of Adele’s 'Love In The Dark' seemingly at Louise's request. Of late, Johansson has been appearing on Louise's YouTube channel to update people on the latest developments in Wandelt's case as they await the hotly-anticipated DNA test results.
Is Julia Wandelt using the Madeleine McCann case for fame?
MEAWW previously reported how TikTok reporter Chris Chandler alleged that Wandelt was simply taking undue advantage of the McCann case to push her singing career. “There’s two sides, either she believes she’s Madeleine McCann and is the real deal and I’ve been miraculously wrong over the last week, or she is Madeleine - and oh my goodness what a massive story that would be," Chandler, 34, told The Daily Star.
“But this could all be an elaborate hoax for her to push her career. Her mother said in a statement that she always wanted to be a singer. This is when I started to connect the dots,” the TikToker stated, adding, “Perhaps this is just to do with her music career because I find it very, very suspicious because the family are saying that she is lying, it’s a hoax and that she wants to become a singer and then all of a sudden she’s doing karaoke on Instagram and apparently she’s written 72 songs!”
