A study of the records available on Manchester's history reveals a long history of irrational behavior and violence.
12. As a result of the respondent's assault upon me and my fear for my own safety and that of my two children I immediately made arrangements to leave the matrimonial home and I left the home on the day thereafter taking with me such furniture and possessions as I had previously acquired prior to the marriage."
The Transcript from the Court Hearing held September 6, 1984 included several more incidents of irrational violence, notes Manchester has psychological problems, and is violent.
These documents came into my possession while I was working for Manchester, services for which I was never compensated. After he sent me this and several dozen other documents, we went over this one, as he attempted to tell me his mother, Lady Mary Montagu had staged the marriage and subsequent events to destroy him.
I did not know what to say. I agreed to read all of the documents and do further research. This occurred in early October, 2011 and I did not then read any of the documents because within a day Alex was embroiled in his break-up with Laura, his wife and our focus shifted to finishing the sale of the Michael Jackson videos, which Manchester was offering for sale.
After I talked to Wendy a very different story emerged. On reviewing the documents with Wendy she told me she also had copies, acquired from the Manchester Trust at the time of the 2011 case heard in the Queen's Court on the issue of whether or not the Trust could continue payments for support, offsetting the non-payment of what had been ordered by the judgement issued for Montagu v Montagu, Case No. 06D010327, by Honorable Judge Mark S. Millard, at the time of her divorce from Manchester in 2007 in Orange County, CA.
Manchester had informed Wendy they were never legally married in 2009, leaving a gloating message on her answering machine. At the same time he had make this known to the Manchester Trustees. The suit was filed by the Trustees, seeking clarification from the court in the UK so they could continue payments to Manchester's two minor children.
While the Second Amendment should always be upheld, individuals known to have a history of gun violence, especially when this is directed at helpless individuals, is not violated by limiting access in these instances.
The court documents for this case are below along with other supplemental information.
