Man falsely accused of rape by serial liar reveals he ‘tried to overdose in front of his mother’
A man falsely accused of rape by Eleanor Williams has revealed he “tried to overdose in front of his mother”.
During an interview on Talk TV Pier Morgan Uncensored Jordan Trengove, 22, who has been serving time in detention over the allegations, said he overdosed in front of his mother after being falsely accused of rape.
He said: “I overdosed in front of my own mother. It was so bad.
“My mother’s best friend killed herself two days before I tried this. My feelings towards my mother were just empty.
“I didn’t think about what her best friend did, and I did the same thing in front of my mom.”
He continued, “I’ve never put other people’s feelings first.
“My life was just too messed up.”
Eleanor Williams, 22, was sentenced to eight and a half years in prison this week after falsely claiming she was a victim of an Asian grooming gang.
In a May 2020 Facebook post that was shared more than 100,000 times, she described being beaten, abused and trafficked by Asian men.
She also posted pictures of her injuries, but the court heard she inflicted them with a hammer.
In January, a jury found Williams guilty on eight counts of committing acts tending and intended to pervert the course of justice.
She pleaded guilty to a ninth count at a previous hearing.
In March 2019, Williams had been dating Mr Trengove when she was brought to her home intoxicated.
She later said Mr Trengove raped her that night and on two subsequent occasions he claimed he came to her home, assaulted her and threatened her with a knife.
The claims appeared to be supported by injuries she sustained after the alleged attack, but they were later found to have been self-inflicted.
Mr Trengove spent 73 days in prison sharing a cell with a convicted sex offender after being charged over Williams’ allegations.
In a statement read at the trial, Mr Trengove said the word “rapist” was spray-painted over his house and his window was smashed after Williams accused him of raping and assaulting her.
Statements read in court on Monday revealed three of the men Williams had accused of attempting suicide following their allegations.
