I Wore Make-up To Hide Bruises From Wife’s Beating For 20 Years – Man



A 46-year-old British man, Richard Spencer, has revealed how he wore make-up to hide the bruises inflicted by his wife, Sheree, during regular beatings from her.

Richard shared some of the videos of abuse, which were captured on a security camera in the children’s playroom.

During an interview, Richard said, “When I think about those memories, I don’t feel associated with them. It’s like they happened to someone else. I know it was me, but in my mind, I can’t understand how I could have allowed that to happen. I wore make-up to hide bruises. Abuse became the norm.”

She can be heard screaming: “Get the f***ing chicken on! Get to the f***ing shop… You will learn.”

Following Sheree’s arrest in June 2021, Humberside police interviewed Richard at their home in a leafy village near York and the investigating officer was so disturbed by what she heard she had to leave the room.

Now, he is speaking out in order to “help as many other people in a similar situation as I can”.

Richard told the Daily Mail: “I want as many people to read about my thoughts and feelings and think, ‘That sounds like me or that sounds like my partner’ because this was so incremental.”

Sheree, the mother of three little girls and a senior manager at the Ministry of Justice, was facing a sentence for “the worst case of controlling and coercive behaviour,” the judge in charge of the case said.

She has been sentenced to four years in prison at Hull Crown Court after pleading guilty to coercive and controlling behaviour and three counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
