“We had a very serious relationship” for a year and seven months “but with infidelities and interruptions. Then, losing her words in the midst of her tears, she claimed to be “terrified” by him. Nordahl Lelandais is “liar, liar, liar. And when he lies, sometimes there is no logic ”. She also describes him as “very very possessive, very clingy, very jealous.” “
“Is this revenge? “
