The Age: Sex story delivers blow to Underbelly
The next series of the hit television show Underbelly may be in doubt after a former King Cross police officer portrayed in the program has threatened to sue for defamation…..
Ms Hatfield’s barrister, Sue Chrysanthou, told the court her client did not know precisely what would be shown in the series but could only assume it would suggest she had a sexual relationship with the Kings Cross identity and nightclub owner John Ibrahim
Yeah, odd that. Given that she admitted under oath to having having spent time with the drug dealer, and that he testified to an affair.
Indeed, if you look back into the archives, the Sydney Morning Herald reported it as fact in 2004
He also had more than his fair share of run-ins with the police. At one stage he was having an affair with a Kings Cross police officer, Wendy Hatfield, who gave another police officer a false name for him when he was pulled over by police for a driving offence
She didn’t sue then, so why now?
Oh, I wonder if it has anything to do with publicity for the series. But no, I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that a former police officer can magically find the money for high priced defamation lawyers 🙂
