Cheryl’s older brother Andrew Tweedy has revealed he is currently living in a tent on the streets and begging for money, but he doesn’t blame his younger sister because she “probably won’t even know” he’s there
Cheryl’s brother Andrew Tweedy is living on the streets.
The older sibling of the Fight For This Love singer has revealed he is currently living in a tent and is begging for handouts and money from people in north England.
However, he has no anger towards hitmaker Cheryl and doesn’t “blame” her for the situation he is in.
He still considers her to be “family” as he admitted he doesn’t think the Girls Aloud star even knows he’s living on the streets.
“This is what I’m f***ing living like. I’ve been begging here for more than three months and it’s something that has really broken my heart,” he told The Sun.
“I’ve got so much f***ing pride. With the family I’ve got, I shouldn’t be here. It’s horrible.
“None of them have contacted me. Even though Cheryl’s not helping me, she’s still my family. She probably won’t even know I’m on the streets. I don’t blame her at all. This is the lowest I’ve ever been.”
He had been working hard and living with his partner, but when the relationship broke down, he ended up homeless.
Andrew has had a troubled past but he previously revealed how his sister encouraged him to change his life around.
“I watch Cheryl on TV and think, ‘Your life is so different to the one you left behind,'” he said in 2008.
“She tells me I should be inspired by what she’s done and I can turn my back on booze and violence. Instead, like a fool, I go back to the drink and the glue.”
Cheryl also spoke about her relationship with her brother in the past, recalling how he turned into a “crazy person” when he realised that their father wasn’t his biological dad.
“They looked really worried and my heart started beating super-fast. ‘I’ll explain it,’ mum said. Her eyes looked sad and she had deep frown lines in her forehead,” she wrote in her autobiography.
“Dad had gone all quiet, which panicked me. The atmosphere felt chaotic. ‘Is dad my real dad?’ Andrew screamed in my mum’s face.
“I swear the clock stopped for a second. He said someone told him in the street that my dad wasn’t his real dad.
“Andrew was going so berserk that he looked like a crazy person. But however mad he looked, this was sounding horribly realistic.”
