Karen Danczuk: My sexy, cleavage selfies ruined marriage to MP

Revealing pics heaped pressure on three-year relationship

Karen Danczuk: My Sexy, Cleavage-Baring Selfies Ruined Marriage
The cleavage-baring wife of a Labour MP says her sexy selfies led to the end of their marriage.

Karen Danczuk, who calls herself the 'Queen of the Selfie,' blamed her addiction to posting racy snaps as the key reason behind her split from Labour MP Simon Danczuk.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Karen told how the marriage crumbled after Simon began to envy her fame, accumulated in part thanks to her penchant for posting selfies on social media featuring her cleavage, reports the Huffington Post.

The 32-year-old, who amassed 58,000 Twitter followers thanks to her saucy photos told the newspaper: "I think there was a bit of jealousy. I've changed so much mentally and physically. I've gone from fat, frumpy Karen to happy, confident and sexy Karen – and I can't ignore that."

Karen, a former Labour councillor, added: "It used to be all about Simon. I used to be his plus one, but it changed dramatically and became more about me. Even at MP events, I became the star. Simon probably just felt a little taken aback."

Split turning nasty?

Simon, who on Monday told of his devastation at the end of his second marriage, a day later appeared to invite his Twitter followers to vote on whether his estranged wife is "tacky" or "classy" for allegedly wearing a T-shirt to help promote the gym of her personal trainer "friend".

Referring to pictures of Karen wearing a Body Pro gym shirt taken since the separation was announced, he wrote: "Using our family breakup to help a 'friend' promote his gym in The Sun and Mail Online. Fav if tacky RT if classy."

Comments posted below the tweet advised the MP to "try to stay calm. Try to block it out" and to "maintain your dignity." Meanwhile another branded the 48-year-old "tacky" himself for "using Twitter to air your dirty laundry."
