Heartbroken bride's wedding dress sale goes viral after she blasts fiancé on Facebook for 'having sex with pal'
A heartbroken bride’s bid to sell her wedding dress has gone viral after she claims she found out her groom-to-be had a fling with her friend.
Kerry Wilkinson’s attempt to flog her unused gown for £100 quickly became an internet sensation.
In an advert posted online, she said: “Never used due to ex-fiancé receiving oral. Just want every last bit of him out my life.”
Former soldier Kerry, 27, from Dunfermline, Fife is accusing ex-boyfriend Dave Notman, 26, of cheating on her with pal.
And she is thrilled with the response the ad has received - although has still to successfully make a sale.
Kerry told Daily Record : “The reaction’s been great. I’ve had marriage proposals and lots of people getting in touch offering support saying ‘Don’t worry’.
“And guys have been saying ‘We’re not all bad, some people are just sick’ so it did cheer me up.
“I cannot deny, it is a slight bit of revenge although the real reason I’m selling it is I need the money.
“I’m not normally one for posting private stuff on Facebook but I was just thinking ‘I need to get this wedding dress out of my life’. And I thought ‘The guy’s an a*** hole so I’ll warn all the girls in Dunfermline what he’s like’.
“I can’t believe what’s happened. Within an hour of my post going up I had 600 odd likes.”
She added: “I put it on for a wind-up. That’s just my sort of banter. I still haven’t sold the dress though, unfortunately."
Gutted mum-of-one Kerry had hoped to use the dress to tie the knot with Black Watch squaddie Dave in June.
But they split up – and Kerry claims it’s because Dave was cheating on her.
She said: “I know for a fact he’s had a thing with (my friend) because a friend of mine got sent PMs between the two of them.
“I think it’s quite clear what was going on."
But Dave insists he has been smeared by Kerry, who he says is jealous that he’s started a relationship with new girlfriend Staci Young.
He says he broke up with Kerry before Christmas and fiercely denied ever having got romantic with the childhood friend.
Dave said: “The situation is that me and Kerry split up before Christmas. We’ve not really spoken since.
“It just got to a point where it wasn’t working so we called it a day before Christmas and as far as I was concerned that was it.
“I’d proposed and she’d bought the dress but we didn’t actually have a wedding date. We were kind of getting towards that stage but then it wasn’t to be.
“She was trying to make me jealous by sending a Snapchat pic of her and another guy in our bed because we used to have a flat together. I didn’t rise to that.
“And then I’ve started seeing another girl called Staci about a month ago, so we’ve put a couple of pictures up online because we’re happy together and I think that’s why she’s put this advert up.
“I was surprised to see her post and thinking ‘Where is she getting this from?’. I texted her asking ‘Where have you got this information because it’s wrong?’ but I didn’t even get a reply.
“I think it’s because I’m in a new relationship and she’s just jealous and trying to make this up to try and make Staci think I’m something I’m not.”
Dave added: “The idea of me and (the friend) is so untrue. I’ve known her since I was a wee boy and I have never, ever gone near her.
“(She) and I will always be friends. One of my best friends was Kerry’s brother Ross who died four or five years ago and he was (she)’s boyfriend at the time. So I’ve always treated (she) like a sister since then and I look out for her.
“I stay with my mum and she’s known that I’ve been pals with (her) for years so she’s just laughing it off as well. She’s been telling me just to ignore it and not take the bait. If you didn’t laugh, you’d cry.”
The soldier says he finds it hilarious that Kerry’s wedding dress advert has gone viral.
But he said: “All my mates were taking screenshots of the post and sending me it and I was just having a wee giggle to myself. It didn’t even bother me. I was like ‘Whatever’.
“I hadn’t realised how big it had become. And because of what she’s said in it, it kind of makes me look like I’m a cheating b*****d. So I kind of want to clear my name. I just want to forget about her and move on with my life.”
