DAVE Courtney turned a life of crime into one of creativity, publishing books and making films.
Following the news that the former London gangster has passed away, we take a look at his elusive wife JennyBean.
Who was Dave Courtney?
David John Courtney, born February 17, 1959 in Bermondsey, London, was a self-proclaimed former gangster.
The former criminal traded his life of crime to become a recognized author and celebrity.
Courtney told readers stories from his past, from being shot to killing to stay alive.
Over the course of his career, Courtney published six books and starred in his own film entitled Hell To Pay.
He also made a living by appearing in numerous television documentaries, talking about his criminal past and his associates, and also starring in films.
Dave claimed to have links to many notorious gangsters such as Reggie Kray and Lenny McLean – and is best known for organizing security at Kray’s funeral in 1995.
Courtney has claimed he served time as a maximum security prisoner at Belmarsh Prison.
These claims were backed up by former prison guard Jim Dawkins in his book The Loose Screw.
Courtney has had a few close calls when it comes to getting a prison sentence – in 2009, the former gangster avoided a prison sentence after being charged with two weapons offenses.
However, former members of the Richardson gang, Bernard O’Mahoney and Frankie Fraser, have accused Courtney of fabricating and embellishing his criminal record – which Courtney has denied.
Who is Dave Courtney’s wife JennyBean?
Courtney and his wife JennyBean prefer to keep their personal lives out of the public spotlight.
Dave has kept personal information about his marriage to himself and has never spoken about it in the media.
Some reports claim that JennyBean is a rapper, but these claims are speculative at best.
What does JennyBean do for a living?
It has not been reported how JennyBean makes a living.
Some media outlets claim she is a rapper.
If this is true, reaching a wide audience is not part of her musical journey as there isn’t much about her or her songs online.
Did Dave Courtney and JennyBean have children together?
There is very little verifiable information about whether Courtney and JennyBean have children.
