My violent boyfriend threatened to turf my dogs out on the street if I leave him – The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: IF I could, I would leave my boyfriend but he’s threatened to turf my dogs out on the street if I do. That’s the sort of emotional blackmail I have to put up with.

I’m a gay man of 28. He’s 42 and very controlling. He was violent towards me so when I met somebody new, I tried to leave him.

He begged me to stay, saying everything would be OK. Like a fool I believed him. That was three years ago.

Now I can’t even visit my mum ten minutes away. I’m like a prisoner.

He gives me £20 to get to work and that’s it. I give all my money to him.

I’m crying inside because I have loads of debts and he gives me financial security.
