Saraya-Jade Bevis’ parents Saraya and Ricky Knight have responded to the situation surrounding explicit leaked photos and videos of their daughter, suggesting that she is in danger.
The WWE superstar, who performs in-ring as Paige, recently was the victim of a hack and had several sexually-graphic photos and videos posted on the Internet without her consent. Especially because the NXT Women’s Championship belt is featured in one of the images, this has lead to speculation that Paige may be fired from the WWE.
On Facebook, Paige’s father Ricky Knight said that he is worried about his daughter’s mental health.
He also says that his daughter “has not killed anyone” but that she simply “[had] sex in a private situation between consulting adults.” He also says that Paige was “betrayed by some low [lives]” and that as her father, he urges everyone to back off.
Knight adds that it will not help if people start supporting Paige after “it’s too late,” referencing instances of the public demonizing celebrities but changing their tune after the celebrity has died.
Here is Ricky Knight’s full Facebook post:
my last say on the scandal surrounding my daughter I have just spoken to her over facebook and I am worried for her mental health or worse ffs world get a grip she has not killed anyone robbed anyone she was having sex in a private situation between consulting adults and then has been betrayed by some low lifes as her dad I urge people to back off as I say I am very worried for her it will be no good backing her when its too late like many other celebrities who have left us.
Meanwhile, Paige’s mother, Saraya Knight, said on Twitter on Friday that “unfortunately my daughter had pics and video shared from years ago” and that “my husband and I support her 100%.” She adds that Paige is at no fault for what happened.
In a recent Facebook post, she echoed her husband’s comments and suggested that her daughter is in danger, writing, “I cannot lose my little girl!” She adds that “[t]here is a broken soul here” and that she hopes that those who are bullying Paige online don’t “take from me one of my most treasured gifts.”
Here is her Saraya Knight’s full Facebook post:
I cannot lose my little girl!! The whole family has taken so much shit, being blasted from all angles. But none of this is worth it. There is a broken soul here. I am on the verge of breaking over this and I cannot deal with anymore. We are crushed. I really don’t know how much more I can take, well done to those that thought this was a great idea, well done to those tagging us in pics and videos. You have done what you wanted to do let’s hope to God you don’t take from me one of my most treasured gifts.
On social media, a number of users have sent Paige’s mother the leaked images of her daughter. Saraya Knight recently stated that she has been speaking with lawyers about this, but that tweet has since been deleted.
Saraya Knight also says that her husband Ricky is sobbing and that the business that they love may kill them.
Paige herself issued a brief statement on Twitter on Friday but has not said anything about the situation since then. She wrote on March 17th, “Personal and private photos of mine were stolen and unfortunately they were shared publicly without my consent.”
