When a famous brother turns on his junkie brother…
Neither one of the Ramsey Brothers are going through a pleasant time, with the elder Gordon getting shit reviews for his own restaurants and the younger Ronnie still coming off heroin addiction and a recent incarceration period in Indonesia. Yet while one fumes in palatial estates the other fumes on the footpaths and squalor of London streets. What gives?
Apparently according to Gordon- he mentions in his autobiography that he paid up to 5 times for Ronnie to go to rehab but each time was met with Ronnie refusing to quit and when he finally got nailed in Indonesia Gordon and his mom have washed their hands of him, which means Ronnie gets to spend the day panhandling and sleeping on the streets while his brother is a big star on the TV that these people come from the streets.
‘I’ve changed my numbers, got extra security in the house with CCTV everywhere, but I’m not giving in. I’m not living like that anymore.’
Ramsay began supporting his brother years ago and confessed that he even bought him heroin to get him through their father’s funeral in 1997.
In any event it’s just another family squabble albeit a very high profile one. But who knows when Ronnie commits to making changes maybe Gordon will make him a humble pie.
When being a drug addict doesn’t get you much air play in some families…
