‘I hope you get hit by a bus and die. Slowly.’ Myleene Klass shocks followers with chilling message to her mother’s mugger

‘I hope you get hit by a bus and die. Slowly.’ Myleene Klass delivers chilling message to her mother’s mugger

Myleene Klass’ anger at the criminal who she claims mugged her mother and sister yesterday is understandable.

But many were equally shocked by the violent nature of the public outburst that followed from the usually timid star.

The furious classical musician and mother-of-two took to Twitter in a fit of rage to wish death upon the culprit in the most drawn-out, excruciating way possible.

She posted: "To the person who mugged my 67 year old mum and my sister. I hope you get hit by a bus and die. Slowly."

Within minutes, the retweets snowballed and fans posted messages of support to the star’s family after their terrifying ordeal.

An equal number voiced their ethical concerns over the tweet – but only after several of her followers offered to “go get” the culprit and to “drive the bus” for her. Or, as friend Martine McCutcheon added in a vigilante tone, to “send the boys round”:

Klass has been vocal about her closeness to her family in the past – particularly to her mother Madgalena.

"I had a real mixture of cultures in my upbringing - as my mum is from the Philippines and my dad is Austrian,” she told The Mirror.

"One of the many things I have taken from my mum is her complete inability to lie. People in the Philippines don't really ever lie - it's not part of their culture.

"I remember when all my family and friends organised a surprise birthday for my 25th, my mum couldn't phone me all day as she knew she wouldn't be able to deceive me.

"I can't lie either, which can get me in trouble when doing certain interviews. It's better to live openly and honestly though - and that is how I want Ava and my unborn child to be.

"I truly appreciate the sacrifices and hard work my mother put into her children. She is a daily inspiration to me.”

And she is no stranger to such attacks herself, either. In December 2005, Klass claims she was attacked by a group of teenagers in a newsagent in Bermondsey in London.

The youngsters apparently dropped a bag of chips on the pop star’s head and pushed her to the ground, before capturing the whole incident on their mobile phones.
