Possessive Boyfriend Banned Girlfriend From Talking To Male Friends Unless They Were Gay

A possessive boyfriend banned his teenage girlfriend from talking to male friends over social media- unless they were gay- in a controlling month long romance.

Matthew Bailey, 24 stopped care assistant Molly Cunliffe, 19, from using Snapchat.

He would regularly check her phone and wouldn't let her put kisses at the end of social media posts.

Bailey was so jealous he'd tell her what to wear and demanded she send him pictures or go on Facetime to prove she was at home or even asleep in bed.

He ordered her not to swap Facebook and Instagram messages with heterosexual men, dictating that the only male friends she could contact over social media had to be gay.

Bailey has been jailed over the controlling relationship in which he bullied and belittled his selfie-loving girlfriend over how she used social media.

During the four week romance, Bailey bombard Miss Cunliffe with multiple phone calls demanding she ring him every day and then falsely accuse her of cheating on him whenever she did not answer.

During one phone call recorded by a friend of Miss Cunliffe following an argument, Bailey warned her: "You'll get a car through your front window and I'll stab you in the neck. You know what I'm capable of."

He added: "Do not block my number then go home and shag.

"Tell your mum and dad to sit upstairs, I'll drive a car through your gaff - take a picture to prove you're outside having a cig."

Miss Cunliffe, from Bolton, Greater Manchester tried to end the relationship but Bailey then threatened to kill her family.

She went to police after a burst of 30 calls in just one morning from her obsessed partner.

At Manchester magistrates court , Bailey, from Horwich, near Bolton was jailed for six months after he was found guilty of engaging in controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate relationship.

He was also barred from contacting Miss Cunliffe for five years under the terms of a restraining order.

Bailey was also ordered to pay compensation to Miss Cunliffe plus costs and surcharges totalling £735.
