The “controlling and violent” model OnlyFans was jailed for life for the murder of her boyfriend

A controlling and abusive OnlyFans model who killed her boyfriend after telling her their relationship was over was jailed for life.

Abigail White, 24, killed Bradley Lewis, 22, with a kitchen knife, but within minutes she told a neighbor that she had stabbed herself.

Mr. Lewis was taken to hospital from the defendant’s home in Chipperfield Drive, Kingswood, South Gloucestershire, but died a few hours later from a single stab wound in the chest.

After being arrested on a murder charge, White told police, “I didn’t stab Bradley.”

White – who had earned £ 50,000 in a year on the OnlyFans online streaming platform, where users can buy and sell content – had denied the murder but was convicted after a 10-day trial in Bristol Crown Court.

The trial judge, Mr. Justice Fraser, jailed White for life and told her he would spend at least 18 years in prison for killing Mr. Lewis.

“It was unfortunate that he was having an affair with you because you are a controlling person and you are also very violent,” she said.

“You had stabbed him on previous occasions than you actually killed him.

“You threatened to kill him regularly and he told his friends that he was afraid of you and wanted to leave you.

“He couldn’t bring himself to do it and every time the subject came up, you would threaten to kill yourself.

“You also threatened to kill him and other people he loved, including his mother, and other women he had relationships with during the years you were together.

“At one point you threatened to destroy everything he loved and threatened to stab him in the face.”

The judge said White had previously stabbed Mr. Lewis in the leg and arm and only told the truth when she threatened him.

“All this behavior was an attempt to control it. The text messages and WhatsApp messages recorded by you make the reading chilling, “said the judge.

“You’ve requested his almost constant attention, and your messages show that unless he replied immediately and did what you wanted, you would become furious and increasingly unstable.

“Your relationship has been described by various witnesses, including your friends, as toxic. I would add to that term, as highly volatile and violent.

“Both the prosecution and the defense claim you loved Bradley, but sometimes you hated him too.”

The court heard that Mr. Lewis had been fatally wounded minutes after leaving a pub with White on the evening of March 25 this year.

A neighbor heard her scream and called 999, and when she entered the house she found Mr. Lewis lying on the kitchen floor with White telling her he did it himself.

White continued with the lies – phoning a friend and telling police that Mr. Lewis was responsible for the stabbing – but later pleaded guilty to manslaughter due to reduced liability.

A post-mortem examination found that Mr. Lewis had suffered a single stab wound, at least 7 cm deep, to the chest, which had penetrated his heart.

On the day of the attack, Mr. Lewis had been in a park with White and another family and told her, “I don’t want to be with you anymore, Abi.”

White told the jury she just wanted to “shock and scare” Mr. Lewis, and they argued after she felt he hadn’t defended her during a fight at the pub.

“I went to him to shock him, to scare him with the knife and before I knew it, I stabbed him,” she said.

“I took that knife in anger and upset, but I didn’t want to hurt or kill him.”

Dr John Sandford, a consultant forensic psychiatrist, said he believed White had a personality disorder, but said the facts of the case suggested he was “aware of what he was doing” at the time of the attack.

“What is the main cause of this crime?” he told the jury. “In my opinion it is the dysfunctional relationship from which he was born”.

To mitigate, Andrew Langdon KC, defending himself, said: “I hope you accept as sincere that she cared very deeply for the person she killed.

“When you are considering whether the remorse is false or genuine, we ask you to accept that it is unequivocally genuine.”

Mr. Lewis’s father, Steve Lewis, wrote in a statement about the victim’s impact: “I want to take this opportunity to tell Abigail White that because of your actions you took my special son from me and sentenced me to a life sentence of pain and distress.

“I want Abigail White to know that I will never forgive her for killing my son and destroying my life and that of her family and friends. And the guilt I carry behind her wishing I had kept it away from her.

Mr. Lewis’s mother, Rachel Hawkins, added, “Abigail White not only killed my son, but she also broke my family’s heart and gave us all a life sentence of grief and upset.

“I will never forget or forgive Abigail White for what she did and a part of me wants her to suffer inside me like me, her soul and spirit hurt like mine and she feels the unimaginable emptiness and loss that I try every single day. “
