Julia who believes she has evidence she is Madeleine McCann

Ok so now Julia’s parents have shared evidence she *isn’t* actually Madeleine McCann

They say she’s always wanted to be popular and famous

After a week of us all thinking a 21-year-old called Julia could possibly be missing girl Madeleine McCann, there’s now apparently evidence which outright proves she isn’t. The parents of Julia, who went viral with her claims, have said they have proof of their daughter’s “lies”.

Since Julia’s claims, her real life parents have reportedly been vocal with their opinions of what she’s been saying. Julia said they previously accused her of “setting up a circus” and said they will no longer answer the phone to her calls. Julia claimed she had text messages from her mother calling her a “horrible person” and “sick” for giving hope to the McCanns.

But now, her family has spoken officially in a statement and said they have evidence Julia is lying. Speaking through a Polish charity called Missing Years Ago, they said they have pictures and memories which go against everything Julia has said.

The family said: “For us as a family it is obvious that Julia is our daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin and step niece. We have memories, we have pictures. Julia also has these photos, because she took them from the family home with the birth certificate, as well as numerous hospital discharges.”

Julia had previously claimed one of the main pieces of evidence and reasons she thought she might be Madeleine McCann was because she couldn’t remember her childhood, had never seen photos, and couldn’t access her birth certificate.

The family went on to say Julia is spreading “lies on the internet” and accused her of sending threats to their home address. “We always tried to understand all situations that happened with Julia,” the family continued. “Threats to our address from Julia, her lies and manipulations, activity on the internet.

“We’ve seen it all and we’ve tried to prevent it, to explain, we’ve asked her to stop. We always tried to help her get back on her feet. Julia has been of age for several years. She has moved out of the house. Julia once wanted to be a singer, a model. She always wanted to be popular. What’s happening now she got one million followers.

“We’re afraid Julia will carry the inevitable. The internet won’t forget, and it’s obvious that Julia isn’t Maddie. We are devastated at this current situation.”

Julia previously told The Tab she had spoken to her family about her beliefs, but they didn’t want to talk to her about it. “[My] mother didn’t want to talk about it,” she said. “She said the past is in the past and she is not going to talk about the past. She said now is the future and we should focus on the future. My dad said, ‘even if I am not your father will it change anything?’”.

At time of publishing, Julia’s Instagram account @iammadeleinemccann has 1.1million followers.
