The story of the girl that “witnessed” a shooting in Sydney’s Kings Cross neighborhood and became an Internet star has now gotten even stranger as it has been confirmed that she made the whole story up:
INTERNET sensation Clare Werbeloff, instantly famous for her
eyewitness account of a shooting in Sydney’s Kings Cross last weekend,
has admitted she fabricated the story.
The Sunday Telegraph can reveal the 19-year-old told investigating police that she “made the whole thing up”.
“We’ve spoken to her, but she’s not a witness to the shooting,” a senior Kings Cross officer said.
“She’s told police that she didn’t actually see it.”
In an interview with Channel Nine
immediately after the shooting, Ms Werbeloff gave a vivid account which
was posted on YouTube and attracted more than 200,000 views.
“There were these two wogs fighting,” Ms Werbeloff told Channel Nine.
”The fatter wog said to the skinnier wog: ‘Oi bro, you slept with
my cousin’. And the other one said: ‘Nah man, I didn’t for s—, eh’
and the other one goes: ‘I will call on my fully sick boys, eh’. And
then pulled out a gun and went: Chk-chk boom!”
But her detailed eye-witness account was false.
As Ms Werbeloff’s newly hired agent, Adam Abrams, confirmed, “She
was not a witness. She saw the camera, ran over to it and told this
Mr Abrams said Ms Werbeloff had gone into hiding after having media camped outside her home.
She has also signed a contract with Channel Nine’s A Current Affair and is likely to appear tomorrow night - but Mr Abrams denied she has received payment for the interview. [News.com]
Without a doubt her and Corey Worthington could definitely hang out. It looks like Justin Kallu was right, this girl really doesn’t have any brains. Either that or she was drunk when she gave the interview, which is probably a distinct possibility.
