Lust, sex, betrayal and revenge - this story is as juicy as any soap opera and almost as farfetched.
It started out as a love triangle between an international model, her sports star boyfriend, and her unscrupulous and obsessed mother.
And it spiralled out of control from there.
There was a murder plot, a couple of Nigerian hit men, and a sensational trial.
But what makes this tale truly incredible is how a wronged daughter chose to deal with her mother's treachery.
