London Evening Standard fakes news photo of Hans and Eva Rausing in Barbados

Breaking original story: Please credit Barbados Free Press

London Evening Standard’s fake news photo!

News article: Barbados lifestyle is drugs, parties, polo, sex… and more drugs!

According to the London Evening Standard, our island home Barbados is nothing but a nest of wild parties, drugs and illicit sex that is somehow responsible for the death of Eva Rausing.

And then while writer Jane Mulkerrins expands little bits of information into a major story titled “Dark side of paradise… the death of Eva Rausing puts the spotlight on Barbados” the paper couldn’t find a photo of the Rausings in Barbados.

The motto of The London Evening Standard: “No photo? No problem! We’ll fake one!”

So they just PhotoShopped a picture of Hans and Eva and stuck it on a Barbados beach background.

Nowhere in the news article or on the photo does it indicate that this news photo is a fiction. It’s titled: “Tight circle: Hans and Eva Rausing as well as the Kemeneys and Kidds have houses on Barbados”

The real AP photo!

The real photo was taken by the Associated Press and shows the Rausings at Winfield House, London.

Hmmmmmmm…. I wonder what else London Evening Standard faked without telling its readers?

Shocking photos of Eva and Hans Rausing show what drugs do

UPDATE: Hans Rausing lived with wife’s dead body for up to a week!

£15million mansion “drug den, living in squalor’

“Eva Rausing, the wife of an heir to the Tetra Pak fortune, may have lay dead for up to a week in a bedroom at the couple’s £50m central London home, it emerged yesterday.” The Independent

“It was total squalor. Really messy. You wouldn’t believe they were billionaires. It shows the effects of drugs. They couldn’t look after themselves or their house. They only used two rooms despite having dozens. It’s very sad indeed.” Mail Online

The photos…

Billionaire Tetra-Pak drug addicts have Barbados home, ties

Tetra-Pak heir Hans Rausing is under arrest after his wife was found dead at their home in Cadogan Place, Chelsea, UK.

Heroin, crack cocaine

What a terrible end to wasted lives. They had all the opportunities that money could bring – but they had all the temptations too and they were not able to overcome their weaknesses. They could have done so much good for themselves, their four children, their families, for the world. They lacked nothing material, but they obviously lacked what is important.

Yes, this story is just breaking, and yes, we’re making some assumptions here – but we’re not pulling those assumptions out of thin air. So many people tried to get these two back on the narrow path, but sometimes there’s just nothing you can do. Even Prince Charles gave them a second chance.

Whatever happened, I’m sorry for Hans, sorry for Eva and their children, their families and just sorry for the whole damn mess. God knows some good people tried to help them.
