Woman claiming to be Madeleine McCann broke down as family destroyed my life

A woman claiming to be Madeleine McCann has said she had a breakdown as she realised her family had "destroyed my life".

Julia Wendell, who has continually claimed she is the missing child, has now said she had ran away from her home in Poland to a safehouse in Los Angeles.

Julia, 21, had watched a movie depicting child abuse that she says brought back painful memories of her time in Poland, where she was allegedly neglected by her family.

She was also possibly trafficked and was sexually molested during her time in Poland, and has since revealed the "biggest breakdown" she has ever experienced.

Speaking to RadarOnline, the 21-year-old said: "Yesterday, I had the biggest breakdown of my life. After (watching) the entire movie I went to (my) bedroom and started to cry wondering why my family didn’t help me, why they destroyed my life.

"I was never angry (at) them; I always loved them because I was always with them.

"I think for the first time I started to ask myself, why (my) family (who) raised me, why they tried to destroy (me)…. I always tried to understand it, OK, it’s your family, ok, they want to help you, they want to do everything to help you, but it’s not the truth.

"They don’t want to help me."

Julia is currently waiting on three genetic tests that will determine whether she is in fact missing three-year-old Madeleine, who vanished while holidaying with her family in Portugal back in 2007.

Among the claims from the 21-year-old are similar freckles and a coloboma in her right eye, which she says are the same as that of the missing three-year-old's.

Speaking of her life at home though, Julia added: "“When I was crying, when I was her age or older, when I was crying my mother said, 'go to your bedroom, be quiet everybody hears you, we don’t want you crying here, why you crying?'.

"So yesterday after this movie, old memories from my childhood came back to me and I realised that it’s not normal that family would try to destroy me."
