Goody’s relatives beg fans not to turn her grave into a shrineApril 6th, 2009 - 5:31 pm ICT by ANI
London, April 6 (ANI): Family members of late reality TV star Jade Goody have begged fans to stay away from her secret burial place, insisting: “We don’t want to turn it into a shrine.”
About 100 people flocked to the quiet spot where Goody - who lost her battle with cervical cancer on March 22, aged 27 - has been buried, reports the Sun.
Goody’s widower Jack Tweed was desperate for her burial place to be kept private but was left disappointed when mourners discovered its location.
Jack told a pal: “It’s time to let Jade rest in peace. There has been enough attention and it’s time to let her be.’
Another friend revealed: “Jack is not happy. He doesn’t want the whole graveyard being trampled by strangers.
“He’ll get very upset if he tries to visit over the coming days and there are hundreds of people there. The family really hoped their privacy would be respected,” the friend added.
A close chum of Goody who placed flowers at her graveside said: “Only a few people were meant to know about this place, the family wanted it that way. There’s talk of getting security here if it gets out of hand.” (ANI)
