Charles Bronson Threatens 'I'll Be Out Soon' To Fiancee's Ex
Britain's most infamous prisoner, Charles Bronson, has sent a threatening letter to his current fiancée's ex, saying that he'll be out 'sooner than you think'.
The former circus strongman got engaged, on Valentine's Day, to ex-Coronation Street actress, Paula Williamson, after they met a Kray Twins appreciation group party.
Bronson, 64, has also Michael Coleman 'vieled threats' from inside HMP Wakefield.
Born Michael Gordon Peterson, and later changing his name to Charles Arthur Salvador, he apparently sent the letter just a few weeks after he started a relationship with Paula, 36.
He writes: "Did you know I've a mate who lives around the corner from you? What a small world."
Coleman responded with a long letter, offering £20 as a peace offering.
Bronson, shut him down quickly, writing back with: "Coleman, don't want, or need your 20 quid."
He continued: "Use it to buy some nappies and don't ever use my name again!
"You, or anybody, got anything to say - tell me when I'm out."
He then signs off the letter as Salvador (his other new name) and adds: "AND I'll be out sooner than a lot think... Paula is my key, can't wait."
Prisoner letters are usually checked before being sent out, so these were either missed, or, they've been approved regardless of the threats.
Bronson is preparing to go up before a parole board, which will consider whether he is safe for release.

He was first imprisoned in 1974 for armed robbery, but released, only briefly, in 1987 when he changed his name to Charles Bronson.
His freedom lasted just 69 days before being sent back to jail.
He was again released in 1992 for a short period (53 days) before being sent back to Wakefield for conspiracy to rob.
During that time, Bronson has become known for his artwork - even selling some to help raise money for various charities.

A source told the Daily Star: "None of Michael's friends can understand how these letters got out of the prison.
"Clearly they're threating and everything that goes in and out of prison is meant to be vetted.
"With Bronson's reputation as a high-security prisoner as well, his stuff should definitely be checked."
Since the threats, Michael has increased his security and is constantly looking over his shoulder - yet he remains solid in his position over Bronson.
"He's not scared of Bronson," the source added. "He just thinks he's a bully. Most people would run to the police, but that is not his style."
Bronson's eventful life has been put on screen in the 2009 classic film by the same name, played by Tom Hardy. And although Hardy is also portrayed as a hardman - sometimes he can prove he has a softer side too.
A little like Bronson and his drawings - even the baddies have a good side to them.
