‘I don’t blame her at all’ Cheryl Tweedy’s brother reveals he’s now living on the streets

The brother of Girls Aloud star Cheryl Tweedy says he’s now living on the streets.

Andrew Tweedy has revealed he is currently living in a tent and is begging for money from people in northern England, reports the Mirror.

The older brother of the former X-Factor judge doesn’t hold anger towards her, admitting that she is ‘blameless’ for his situation.

“This is what I’m ****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 ****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.”

Andrew, who says he ended up homeless following the breakdown of a relationship, 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.”
