EVIL Karen Matthews is said to be enjoying a life of luxury funded by her relationship with a 72-year-old man.
Eric Anderson, a self-proclaimed Christian, has showered Matthews with money and dozens of gifts, according to reports.
Anderson’s generosity has left Matthews, once dubbed Britain’s worst mum, with top of the range appliances in her state-funded flat.
Matthews, who claims to have found religion in prison, works at a charity shop with the OAP.
A source close to Matthews told the Sunday People she has targeted older men since she left prison in 2012 with a profile on a dating site, for women seeking financial arrangements with men.
The person, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “She’s not getting that money from volunteering.
“She makes no secret of the fact that she has older benefactors who keep her in the lifestyle she wants.”
Eric declined to comment on whether his relationship with Matthews is sexual.
But he did tell the newspaper: “It’s my Christian duty to explain what love is about.
“She has concerns, she is a person of need, and whatever that need is, if people cross my path I will care and support.”
