Man dumped his girlfriend after finding out she had five husbands and another lover

Man dumped his girlfriend after finding out she had five husbands and another lover

A man has spoken out after discovering that his girlfriend was actually married to five men and had another lover.

It must have been a lot to process, and 43-year-old Wayne Harper must have thought that he’d wasted the 18 months the pair spent together when he found out.

He called time on the relationship after discovering that Horne had been having an affair, but then it turned out that she was married to five blokes as well, but only after he’d said that he’d stand by her so long as she remained loyal.

When that relationship finished, Horne then went on to marry two more men, making her one of Britain’s most prolific bigamists.

That’s seven husbands in total, in case you’ve lost track.

Harper and Horne met up when they were both in the hospital together.

He was in after a cycling accident and she was in recovery from a minor operation.

After they’d been together for more than a year he accused her of cheating on him, ending their relationship.

He told The Sun: “I split up with her, it was my doing because I found out she was cheating on me.

“I was only with her for 18 months and it was not a happy ending.

“I have nothing left of her in my life, no pictures, nothing.

"I was her partner not a husband and at the time she had five husbands."

Horne had moved in with Harper and his family at the time of the break-up, having moved in early after telling him she had nowhere else to go.

Harper’s dad Dennis explained: "Emily, who can forget her? We’re going back years but she lived here for about six months.

"She seemed quite intelligent but could be a bit odd at times and got depressed.

“They were together for a year or more but my son ended the relationship before the s*** hit the fan and he found her going with other blokes.

"I have no idea why she kept marrying and where she is now."

Then, after admitting that she might deserve a second chance, claiming he would support her if she was charged with bigamy, he changed his mind.

Horne’s entire marital history has been catalogued on a Channel 5 show called The Bigamist Bride: My Five Husbands.

It all began in 1996 when she was 18 years old, with a first husband called Paul Rigby.

Another came in 1999, this time Sean Cunningham, with Horne using a false name.

After that, she married his mate Simon Thorpe, but married Chris Barrett while she was still engaged, before marrying James Matthews four weeks after meeting him on a train.

The police became involved after she was cautioned for bigamy back in 2001 while working in the adult industry.

In May 2007, she married again, this time to a man from Rochdale called Ashley Baker.

She confessed her previous marriages to him after they wed, before agreeing to marry a man called Stuart Allen in 2010.

However, that didn’t come off either, as she fled for America to marry a policeman she’d met online.

That fell apart, and in 2011 she married a seventh man, Craig Hadwin, in Scotland.

It’s a huge web.

Now, she’s legally changed her name to Maxine-Accastes Quiberon, and was sentenced in 2012 to a 12-month community order with a curfew and a 28-day electronic tag period.
