Hi, I am new on here, I am trying to prove to a friend that her Tunisian boyfriend is using her, the problem is, she loves him and is struggling to accept what we are all telling her. This man has cost her everything, her marriage, her children, her family, her home, and her fun filled, life loving personality. She has lost over four stone in weight and looks ill. He has reduced her to nothing, but she has no faith left in herself and has given up on life and can now see no future except with him because there is nothing left. In her heart, she knows he is using her, though at the beginning, we all believed he genuinely loved her. He physically assaults her, verbally abuses her and controls her. She is a mess and we don't know how to help her. She mostly lives over there with him. His family support her financially because they know she has nothing. He is absolutely obsessed with coming to England, but her ex has prevented this from happening by reporting him to every authority you can imagine after he sent death threats to her children and friends. He has three failed illegal attempts to get here under his belt, he has been deported each time. He will not accept that she can not legally get him here and we are all at the end of our tethers. Does anybody on here know anything about him? His name is Houssem (not sure of surname) but he has alias names, one being Màrc Clovinc on FB, in which his profile pic features my friend. He claims his mother is Russian, but we all have doubts. He got outed on a Russian site called VK after trying to use Russian girls for visas. She says he never asks for money or gifts, but is this true? He plays the keyboard and speaks English, French and Russian, as well as Arabic. I do not know how to put pictures on here, but I can access many. How do we get my friend away from this animal when she is now so defeated, she would rather have this than nothing? She has just returned from Tunisia with a probably broken foot and other bruises, we are worried sick because he has physically assaulted her since late last year and doubt her story of a fall on the beach. Please help me help my friend.
