That's not the kind of story that gets you fame.
The guy is family to her. It makes no sense at all that she would lie about it.
Lying is also not uncommon and "fame" may not be her motive. Perhaps revenge is?
Fact is, some people lie and they do so for any variety of reasons. It reminds me of a situation that I had happen to me roughly 20 years ago when I
was living in Kansas. One day I received a phone call from some detective from the Wichita Police Department. He was very curious about my activities
the week prior. According to him, and what I was later charged with, I assaulted a girl in a crowded parking lot of a grocery store in the middle of
the afternoon, leaving her with a black eye. Of course her only witness was her friend. I spent a small fortune defending myself in court and
eventually all charges were dropped.
What really happened?
I was sitting in my car waiting 20 minutes for some lady to move her car a total of 5 feet into a parking spot. I was in a hurry and it literally
took her 20 minutes. While I was sitting in my car, with the windows rolled up, I was probably ranting and raving to myself about how long it was
taking this idiot to park and get out of my way. Well this lady had 2 girls in her car who saw my mouth moving.
So as I walked into the store, I heard some yelling behind me. I turn and it is the girls who were a passenger in the car yelling at me for "talking
trash". We exchanged words and I walked off. That was the extent of our altercation. There was no touching, no punching, nothing but a few words.
After a 9 month battle in criminal court and a couple thousands dollars later, the case was thrown out of court. Care to take a wild guess why? It was
tossed out because the witness for the girl I "assaulted" pulled my attorney aside and admitted the whole story was made up. That she punched her
friend in the eye so they could blame it on me. Some random stranger in a parking lot.
So why is this relevant to your post?
Because a majority of what you posted is exactly the same things the detective said to me over the phone... right before he issued my arrest warrant.
"Why would she lie?" , "What does she have to gain?" , "How did she get the black eye then if you didnt hit her?"
Guess what? People lie. They do so for a variety of reasons. It is dangerous to take a story at face value, with no evidence and assume it is truth.
