Opening up about the “damaging” experience on Wednesday’s (7 March) celebrity edition of ‘The Jeremy Kyle Show’, Rebekah admitted she was so overwhelmed to wake up to a sea of tribute messages she was even left questioning whether she had died herself.
She explained: “I woke up to many messages on my phone of people saying I was an angel saying ‘rest in peace’ because now your problems have finished and things like that.
“And for a second I thought ‘am I dead?’. It’s funny now but it’s not good emotionally, it’s very damaging.”
Rebekah went on to claim the tweet announcing her death was posted as a cruel move by her lover’s wife, suggesting: “His wife knows everything, that’s the problem - she’s the stalker; the one who posted the tweet.”
Following the initial tweet from Rebekah’s account, many former ‘Big Brother’ stars began paying their respects, including ‘Bit On The Side’ presenter Rylan Clark-Neal and the show’s official Twitter page.
She also denied the suggestion she’d posted the tweet herself for attention or publicity, insisting: “You know who [said that]? A couple of losers. You know where they are now? I don’t know either.”
