Well New Idea definitely made a boo-boo.
Earlier this month, they released scandalous photos of Bec Hewitt appearing all lovey dovey with this unknown and attractive man. The magazine branded this unknown man as the “special guy” in her life.
Juicy news isn’t it?
Well this guy is indeed a “special guy” in her life, you want to know why?
Because this guy is – HER BROTHER!
And suddenly, it all just seems weird now…
Upon seeing the story, Bec Hewitt immediately sued publisher Pacific Publications demanding a basis for their story because the “special guy” they were pertaining to was actually her brother Shaun Cartwright. Bec was also demanding for the name of their source.
NEW Idea was quick to issue an apology to Bec Hewitt with this statement “Pacific regrets any hurt or embarrassment caused to the Hewitt’s by the story, which wasn’t intended.”
In saying that though, they have also advised that they can’t reveal who their source is.
We understand that the Hewitt’s are seeking to discover the source of the story, which Pacific will defend on the usual basis,” a spokeswoman advised.
A paparazzo called Jamie Fawcett declared that the photos were taken by “New Idea’s guy in the US – a guy called Rupert.” However this “Rupert” is a slippery fellow and until now hasn’t been tracked down.
Well this whole fiasco definitely is a mess! The worst thing that a publication can ever do is broadcast an inaccurate story to the public, but hey, everyone has their bad days.
Well whoever this Rupert guy is, he better watch his back because Bec is on a warpath – and who can blame her? Having a brother for a lover is not exactly good for anyone’s image!
