Northern Ireland’s First Minister and leader of the DUP was left humiliated after television presenter and celebrity doctor, Christian Jessen posted false social media allegations over an affair with a close protection officer, she told the High Court in Belfast.
According to the BBC, Mrs Foster made the statement at the High Court where she said the post and rumours were categorically untrue and inflicted deep hurt and a time she was attempting to restore power to Northern Ireland. Ms Foster has been happily married for some 26 years and has one son.
The BBC reports that the court heard that Dr Jessen responded to an email from Mrs Foster’s solicitor and removed the tweet on January 7 but he has not responded to correspondence since. The tweet was posted just two days before Christmas in 2019.
The case between Mrs Foster and Dr Jessen awaits a written decision from Mr Justice McAlinden.
