Footballer Gareth Bale has postponed his wedding to his childhood sweetheart on account of multiple troubles rocking his in-law.
Bale and fiancée Emma Rhys-Jones had planned a star-studded ceremony in a historic castle in Italy, and wanted Beyonce as their wedding singer.
However, the pair have put off their big day until next summer after Rhys-Jones’s father was sentenced to six years imprisonment for £2million international fraud ripping off investors worldwide.
Emma’s family members were involved in a missing suitcase containing £750,000 of drug money leading to the torching of her grandparents and aunt’s houses by the aggrieved parties in 2016.
It was understood to be part of a feud with a drugs gang after Emma’s cousin Epiphany Dring – a former glamour model – disappeared allegedly carrying a suitcase full of cash, plus drugs and watches believed to make the full contents worth around £1million, Daily Mail reported.
Emma, the former hairdresser who fell out with her dad after he got married to a lady half his age, apparently hopes the extra time the wedding’s postponement present will give her chance to heal a rift with her ex-jailbird father Martin Rhys-Jones, 54.
