Now they have divorced and she is locked in a legal battle over ownership of a compound in Gambia she invested £90,000 in – but put in his name.
SYNOPSIS: Four millennials looking for sex, love and a well-located flat find themselves caught in a complex game of rivalry, desire and seduction in Games For Lovers.
“I saw you massaging sun tan lotion on to her earlier on the beach.” He laughs and shakes his head. His 21-year-old friend — another bumster — explains why they target old women. “As the eldest sons we are expected to look after our families and most of us make less than £50 a month.
Everywhere I look, Western women are flaunting their younger lovers like must-have accessories as reggae blasts out. ” Julie adds: “I’ve been seeing a 36-year-old Gambian for about three years. He’s not coming to England and we are not getting married.
There are plenty of horror stories about Gambian “bumsters” — a term used to describe unemployed Gambian men who target Western women they see as a meal ticket to the UK. To me it’s just a bit of fun, I don’t see them as real relationships. English guys are a bit vulgar, but the Gambian men I’ve met have been romantic.” Jackie tells how she is on a girls’ holiday with her sister Julie Ramsey, 60, a housekeeper, and three other British pals. I tell him I’ve got no savings.” For women of a certain age, who may feel they have become invisible to men back home in Britain, Gambia really can seem like the “Tinder dream” Prue describes.
A HORNY granny grinds against her Gambian toyboy at the bar, her Zimmer frame screeching back and forth with every thrust.
Nearby, a silver-haired siren snogs her gym-honed lover while he squeezes her saggy bottom.
Many of the lawyer’s clients have continued to date — and marry — younger Gambian men despite their negative experiences. “I have one older British client who has been scorned a number of times by younger lovers but admits she can’t stay away from them.” For some women, there is clearly an addictive buzz to dating the young Gambians — despite some obvious warning signs.
Back in the club, a bumster I spotted at the beach earlier with an old lady has made a beeline for me. ” I ask him, as he begins to rattle off cheesy compliments about my smile. It’s nice to be nice.” Before I can answer, the old lady hobbles over on walking sticks and ushers him away.
Last year, Gambian lawyer Lamin Ceesay, from Solie Law Chambers, was contacted by hundreds of devastated Brits seeking advice after their age-gap relationships went pear-shaped and they were left in financial ruin.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, from his office in the capital, Banjul, he said: “The bumsters are everywhere and are causing a lot of disruption to our tourism industry.
Their goal from these relationships is to get to England.
"If they find out that is not possible then their next goal is to try to get something out of her — like a car, a house or a monthly allowance.
In 2010 she received pictures of him with two kids he had fathered with his lover, but he denied they were his.
