Sophie Stevenson claims she was optimistic when she traveled 400 miles for the man of her dreams only to discover she was the victim of a cruel prank called “pull a pig.”
Stevenson claims she met the accused prankster, 21-year-old Dutchman Jesse Mateman, while visiting Barcelona. Stevenson, 24, says they came together after the traumatic events of the August terrorist attack. They continued a long-distance relationship for months after she arrived home.
In an interview with ITV’s This Morning, Stevenson called their relationship a “proper holiday romance,” claiming they spent every day together during the duration of their trips and chatted every day on the phone. The alleged victim says it was during their daily phone conversations that they agreed to meet in Amsterdam, a fair meeting point between Stevenson’s hometown in London and Mateman’s in Holland.
In the interview, Stevenson says she waited at the Amsterdam airport for over two hours trying to contact Mateman before she began to panic. She says she called a friend who told her to “remain calm” and that Mateman was probably “running late.” A devastated Stevenson claims she received a text message 6 hours later in her hotel room which read “You were pigged,” followed by 2 pig emojis. He then sent, “It was all a joke.”
