Yesterday we reported on Kristie Sue Costa’s bizarre allegations that she was being “gang-stalked” by someone who appears to be the most incompetent online stalker in the known universe. Today we’d like to take a look at another epic fail on her “Berate the Chickens” Facebook page.
Having been roundly bested by a commenter named Avid Mador who kept politely but firmly challenging her, Kristie Sue followed standard troofer protocol: she banned the infidel, then rewrote history in her own special way.
While we have neither the inclination nor the time to answer every lie, prevarication, inaccuracy, or ludicrous presumption in her latest opus, we thought we’d examine a few of her more ridiculous statements, in the interest of correcting the record (and at least partially preserving our own sanity).
Who called social services?
Avid raised several key questions here, but Kristie Sue chooses to address only one: Avid’s point that social services had already been called about Ella and Abe’s treatment of the children, as they were found to be eating out of bins at their school.
Kristie Sue goes into a rather long response in which she claims that the children themselves stated in the Jean-Clement audio recording that the report to social services was made by a neighbour who was (surprise!) a member of the imaginary cult.
Sadly, Kristie Sue has the wrong end of the stick here. In fact, while neighbours may very well have reported Abe and Ella to social services, the initial complaint came from the very place where the children had been observed scavenging food from the bins: their school.
We know that Abe had a very rocky relationship with the school: on one occasion, he flew into a rage when he discovered that the school had been giving the children “off-limits” food. Abe accused the school of “poisoning” the children. At school, the children shared their fear and dislike of Abe to their friends and teachers.
Two teachers—the headmistress and deputy head teacher—called social services and let them know that the two children were hungry and fearful of their mother’s boyfriend. This is why Abe targetted the head teacher and deputy so viciously and personally: he was taking his revenge on those who’d reported him.
Not too surprisingly, Abe and Ella made no mention of this to their adoring fans…but it did come up in the fact-finding hearings, which we are quite certain Kristie Sue has never bothered to read.
Why did Ella bother creating the hoax when she already had custody?
Avid states that for over two years Ella had tried to stop RD from getting access to the two children.
Kristie Sue responds, “Except the father had been in Hollywood for those two years and wanted nothing to do with the children as shown in his police interview”.
To clarify this question, we turn once again to the fact-finding hearing of February/March 2015.
There we learn that in 2003 Ella met RD, with whom she had the two children. By 2006 they were living apart. From that time, RD’s access to his children had never proceeded smoothly. He had to keep returning to court to gain access. He obtained multiple court orders in favour of access, which Ella consistently thwarted.
According to Mrs Justice Pauffley, “Between May 2010 and October 2013, therapeutic sessions occurred intermittently at the Tavistock Clinic. There was a period, notably between November 2011 and November 2012, when the children did not have contact with their father. There was intermittent concern about P’s relationship with her mother and also that both children were presenting as and complaining of being hungry at school”.
In May 2014, RD had contact with the children for the first time since October 2013. According to Ella, RD stated his intention at this time to apply for increased access to the children. She has also stated that she was desperate to prevent this from happening.
So despite what Kristie Sue would have us believe, Ella was indeed motivated to remove her ex-partner from her life once and for all.
Why did Ella and Abe make false allegations?
Kristie Sue states,
Filing false allegations is highly illegal. Why would Ella & Abraham put themselves and the children in that position? Ella would have NOTHING to gain and EVERYTHING to lose by fabricating allegations such as these. Ella is an intelligent woman, she would never do this.
Excuse us for a moment while we stifle our laughter.
What Kristie Sue avoids mentioning here is that while filing false allegations is indeed illegal, Ella has clearly stated that they never intended for this case to be seen by the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service). In fact, as stated in the Jean-Clement recording, the plan was to take the children straight back to Morocco the following day.
The little girl confirms this in the Finn Hagan recording:
They’re planning for me and Q and my mum, to go to Morrocco, well, to Marrakesh. Fly to Maroc, then Casablanca, to Russia, where my grandparents are.
It was only Jean-Clement’s reporting them to Scotland Yard which scuppered this plan: to Abe and Ella’s surprise, the police turned up at their door the day after their visit to Jean-Clement’s house, and commenced their investigation of the children’s allegations.
So no, Ella didn’t care that making false allegations was illegal, since she and Abe did not plan to be around to face the consequences of their actions.
Abe had form for violence against women and children
Avid points out to Kristie Sue that Abe had “previous on those tactics, where he left his own children to face the police running off. I’m not sure how much you know about Abe’s own background of harming his own children and step children, as well as hospitalising their mother”. Rather than try to mount a coherent argument, Kristie Sue responds:
How do you know so much about Abraham’s back ground? What are your NON-Hoaxtead sources? Police reports? How did you obtain them? I have seen screen shots of a fake profile claiming to be Abraham’s step daughter, I can’t be bothered to look for your screen shot, when you provide one we’ll tackle it.
In fact, we can think of any number of ways in which a person might know about Abe’s prior behaviour. Perhaps they might know someone harmed by Abe; they might have been attacked themselves. Perhaps they were a former neighbour, or knew people who had been. Perhaps they knew Abe’s ex-wife, or one or more of his children or step-children.
They might have seen the information shared with both Sabine McNeill and us by Abe’s step-daughter, who called him “the step-father from hell” and described how he attempted to get her and her siblings to make false allegations of sexual abuse about their own father.
We wonder why Kristie Sue is trying to downplay Abe’s known violent tendencies. Is she unaware of his multiple arrests and convictions for assault, fraud, counterfeiting, and other crimes? Exactly how wilfully blind is it possible for one person to be?
Abe gives the show away himself on 8 September 2014 while talking to Finn Hagan, when he discloses that he had previously met DC Steve Martin when he’d been charged with assaulting his own son.
Abe sounds nervous as he says, “They want to talk to me. I wonder why they want to talk to me”, and then “It’s him. It’s him, who we suspected, S.T….” The child exclaims, “Steve!” and Abe confirms, muttering, “It’s him, it’s him, it’s him.”
Ella interjects, “They were really pressurising me today”.
But Abe is on his own track: “It’s him. We know it’s him.”
The child says, “I think I know what, it’s both of them. Fat lady and Steve…” but Abe goes on: “He likes, he doesn’t like babies. He likes boys. Steve, Steve likes boys. He came for F******” (referring to Abe’s teenage son).
Finnbar says, “Who’s that, the cop?”
Abe replies, “Yeah, he came for F*****”. And he didn’t get him because of me, right, he didn’t get him because of me…and now, he sees I’m here again, another child case. Well, I keep turning up. He keeps turning up”.
“Strange”, says Finnbar.
“So he knows everything?” asks Ella.
“Oh, he knows, yeah”, Abe says.
This isn’t hearsay. This isn’t something that can be written off as a “fake profile” (though why Kristie Sue would think that Abe’s step-daughter’s profile was fake we do not know). This is a matter of record, and anyone who wishes to can listen to the video for themselves.
The fact that Kristie Sue doesn’t wish to do so says a great deal more about her than she might realise.
