36 years old Zara Phythian along with her 59 years old husband are facing 14 charges of sexual activity with a 13 years old that is said to have continued until the child was 15. The unidentified woman now said to be in her late 20’s testified in a United Kingdom court room against Phythian and her husband.
In her police report, the identified victim claims that Phythian(along with her husband) threatened to cause harm to her should she reveal details of what occurred. The victim claims that it was the police approaching her which gave her confidence to report the crime. Apart of what she said in reference to the police approaching causing her to open up:
I could never had made a report. I would have died with my shame
She also said having a child of her own motivated her to speak out. She adds:
At that time, I had just become a mum and had no option other than to speak my truth and never allow it to happen to anyone else again.
The victim who says the sex crimes began in 2005- 2008 says that she met Phythian and her husband when they were martial arts experts. Phythian according to the victim provided her with alcohol and persuaded her to perform oral sex on her husband. Almost answering the questions many are probably thinking, the victim said:
“I knew it was wrong, but I just didn’t know how to get out of the situation or say anything. I remember trying to copy Zara’s reaction at the time, because I looked up to her and tried to be like her in any way.”
Luckily, the big wigs behind Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will not have to worry about Phythian’s disturbing legal troubles over shadowing the movie. Because, she is not in the latest Marvel movie set for theatres May 06th.
