Charles Bronson's brother will never forgive him for tricking 93-year-old mum about fake son

Charles Bronson's brother will never forgive him for tricking 93-year-old mum about fake son

The notorious criminal pretended she had a grandson for six years

Charles Bronson's brother has said he will never forgive him for tricking their mother.

The notorious criminal - who has just been denied parole - conned his 93-year-old mum into believing that 'PR agent' George Bamby was her grandson.

Watch here:

Bronson and Bamby faked their relationship for six years in order to gain publicity for the prisoner, and Bamby admitted that he 'made loads of money' from the ruse.

Bronson's brother, Mark Peterson, said he always knew it was a con and he will 'never forgive' his brother for deceiving their mum.

"All the close family members and close friends did [know it was a con], and that's why me and my brother had a big fallout, because he lied," he told Matt Leg on a livestream.

Bamby admitted he wasn't Bronson's son.

"The main person he's lied to, which I can't get over, is trying to con my old dear into it."

He continued: "I don't want to [reconcile], I've lost all respect for him.

"Because he lied and was deceitful to my mum, there's no forgiveness. I've got no feelings for him anymore."

Bamby said Bronson – who changed his surname to Salvador in 2014 – approached him six years ago asking if he would help 'get loads of publicity for him and make sure he wasn’t forgotten about'.

Speaking on TalkTV, he said: "Me and Charlie together made up the story that he was my dad.

"Charles Bronson is not my father. I am a PR agent. I'm a marketing person, and I'm the UK's number one paparazzi.

"I've not told anybody this for six years and it's been an absolute bane of my life."

He added: "Me and Charlie, for the last six years, have made loads of money, we've had loads of fun, we've created loads of stories, we've done loads of ridiculous things, we've manipulated the media, we've manipulated the prison service.

"I got into the maximum security services in four different prisons as a journalist."

Bamby said the profits were split between him and Bronson's consultant, because people serving jail time are not legally allowed to make money.

In a document detailing the decision to deny Bronson's bid for release, the Parole Board said: "After considering the circumstances of his offending, the progress that Mr Salvador has made while in custody and the evidence presented at the hearings, the panel was not satisfied that Mr Salvador was suitable for release.

"Nor did the panel recommend to the Secretary of State that he should be transferred to an open prison."
