And the drama continues.
Matty from Wythenshawe, who become a minor viral celebrity over the weekend for his part in the FacebookAppealForStunningGuyFromClubGate scandal, has now given his side of the story.
Here’s a quick recap of the situation: Pippa Mckinney, 22, was out to celebrate her birthday, when she met Matty. The two hit it off, they spent a magical evening together and she took his number. But the next day she discovered the number didn’t work, so she launched an appeal on Facebook to locate him.
Unfortunately it turned out Matty already had a girlfriend, Emily, who was subsequently tagged in the post. Everything then kicked off when the post went viral.
Pippa gave her side of the story the other day, and now Matty’s had his turn.
The 22-year-old said he ‘made a massive mistake’, and vowed to fight to win Emily back. He told the Manchester Evening News:
I hold my hands up. I’ve made a massive mistake. I’ve ruined the best thing that has ever happened to me. Not only have I disrespected Emily, but I’ve disrespected her and my entire family.
I’ll never live this down. It was one single drunken kiss that obviously meant more to her than it ever did to me. It was a mistake and I’m sure people have done a lot worse. This has ruined me. Emily won’t speak to me.
But I promise I will not stop fighting for her. It may take one year, it may take five years, but I won’t stop.
Matt said he was drunk but that this didn’t excuse his actions. He went on to say that if the girl had any respect for Emily she’d have taken the photo down, but the fact she didn’t shows she was just out for attention, before charmingly adding: “Why would I go out for a hamburger when I’ve got a sirloin steak cooking at home?”
He then added:
I gave her a fake number for a reason. I didn’t want to let her down hard, I’m not that type. I wish I did now. The kiss was stupid and I instantly regretted it. After the kiss I went over to my mate and told him, ‘we are leaving’. I forgot about it and then in the morning I saw the picture and it all came back to me like a bad dream, which I want to forget.
Yep. Matty is the type to let a girl he’s just cheated on his girlfriend with down gently. He’s a true gentleman for the modern age.
He finished by saying: “I’m doing this to say I’m sorry, I’m not doing it for the attention like some people are.”
