The Mirror UK wrote about the woman's story saying that she had met her husband Maurice in Nigeria and they had married after a three-month romance. After being married for 17 years, Gibney discovered that her husband had met another woman who lived in Stourbridge, Worcestershire. Gibney a resident of Wirral, Merseyside, is now speaking out about the "absolute betrayal". The husband, Oil worker Maurice, is still married to the second woman, Suzanne Prudhoe, and had received a suspended sentence for the crime in 2014.
