I’m going to admit something a little bit shameful - I’m secretly fascinated by that odious little sh*t James Stunt.
Yes, the outrageously silly bloke who travels around London in a convey of Rollers, Lamborghinis and Range Rovers, with more security than the Pope or Donald Trump.
I admit, Mr Stunt’s exterior packaging is not great - that slicked back hair is too eighties for my taste and his embroidered slippers just look naff - so it’s hard to see what attracted the beautiful millionairess Petra Ecclestone to this comic vulgarian, whose exact job description has always been a mystery, who claims to have an art collection worth millions and properties all over the place.
James Stunt (pictured leaving the Central Family Court in London) is a fascinatingly odious little sh*t, writes Janet Street-Porter
Stunt is fascinating because he’s utterly shameless, he’s made boasting an art form, and claims to have a convicted gangster as his best pal and very unlikely godfather (as in the guy who's charged at your christening with giving you moral guidance as opposed to mafia don).
He’s a man whose gorgeously embellished tales of extravagance take your breath away.
James has admitted: 'I definitely had a gambling problem'..but now he 'only' bets £20,000 a night, 'which is a huge improvement on losing £5 million'. But has Mr Stunt finally shot himself in the foot?
Bernie Ecclestone, the former boss of Formula One, is not an adversary most people would relish taking on - but this week James has given an interview to the posh people's glossy magazine Tatler in which he calls his former father in law ‘a dwarf’, describes his ex-wife as someone who has ‘had a lobotomy…and a horrible human being’ and his ex mother in law as ‘Lady Macbeth’.
He appears to be brimming with hatred and seeking revenge, following a bitterly contested divorce last year and a financial settlement agreed just a few weeks ago.
Janet Street-Porter admits to a secret fascination for Mr Stunt
Stunt is rumoured to have signed a £16 million pre-nuptual agreement, and during the divorce proceeding was forced to leave the £100 million family home in Chelsea.
Now he’s in a humble £12 million pad down the road in Belgravia.
Bernie has opted for dignity in the face of slander, announcing ‘I feel sorry for him (James)…drugs changed him. I am a little bit shorter than the average person, so if he wants to call me a dwarf, that’s alright’.
I doubt that’s the end of the matter - Bernie has implied that his ex wife and daughter might well seek legal action to silence further rantings from Mr Stunt.
Tamara and her sister Petra are not the brightest spanners in the toolbox. They are gorgeous sirens, who have opted for maximum makeup at all times, with heavily accented eyebrows and long carefully arranged tresses.
Human barbie dolls - they both look older than their years (Petra is 29 and Tamara 33).
I’ve interviewed Tamara several times
