The singer revealed it was a mutual choice in between herself and the bank
Nicola Roberts has let her £1.25million Surrey mansion be repossessed by the bank in a mutual agreement so she can escape the memory of her stalker ex-boyfriend Carl Davies.
The 34-year-old former Girls Aloud singer had been attempting to sell the home for years in order to escape her ex, who sent her three,00 emails and threatened to burn and stab her. She even drastically lowered the cost to £825,00 in the hope of a rapid sale.
On Saturday she admitted it was ‘her personal decision’ to turn to the bank for support in order to be in a position to move on with her life and relocate to London.
‘It was my choice to go to the bank and ask if they would take the residence in exchange for clearing the mortgage,’ she told The Sun.
‘I had been attempting to sell the residence for years and was so unhappy there that I decided to take the hit financially in order to move on and come across a new home away from the undesirable memories. I’m truly satisfied in my new residence now.’
Nicola was in a position to safe her belongings from the residence – which was very first listed in February 2017 – prior to it was place back on the market place, due to the mutual bank agreement.
Nicola’s ex Carl, who she dated more than ten years ago, was offered a suspended 15-month prison sentence by Guildford Crown Court, Surrey in 2017.
At the time she was also granted a lifetime restraining order from the former soldier, who was also banned from hunting at her social media posts.
