Gareth Gates’ mother Wendy is furious after reading about her son’s booze-fueled antics last week in Amsterdam’s red light district. An insider at 19 Management said: “She wasn’t pleased at all about what happened and is deeply concerned that Gareth doesn’t fall in with the wrong crowd. Wendy is very protective of her son and has told him in no uncertain terms that she does not want a repeat performance. She doesn’t want him leaving himself vulnerable to people who don’t have his best interests at heart. We have been warned to keep him on a tighter leash for the foreseeable future.”
The House Gareth Gates Built
April 13, 2003 – The Sunday People reports 13-year-old Lucy Sutton has turned her mother’s house into a shrine for Pop Idol runner-up Gareth Gates, placing about 3,400 posters, pictures and photos throughout the entire family home. “I just love him so much – his dimples, his songs and his hair. He’s just so lovely,” Lucy said. Not that Anna is in a position to complain – she’s covered the cupboard doors in the kitchen with her own favorite star, Robbie Williams.
