London, Oct 15: TV star Jimmy Savile, who was accused of sexually abusing children, arrogantly declared that he just didn’t care if people would call him a pervert after his death, it has been revealed.
When asked if he would mind being remembered as a conniving pervert and abuser he told a reporter, “If I’m gone that’s that. B******s to my legacy.”
The chilling interview emerged as police revealed there could be as many as 60 victims of Savile, twice as many as initially feared.
According to the Daily Mirror, Savile was not so much angry, but impatient and dismissive when asked bluntly if he was “into little girls”.
“I’d rather not even opinionate on this. I’ll leave it to the psychologists to sort out the psychology of child abuse,” Savile, who died last October aged 84, said.
According to the report, at one point he turned the issue into a joke and said, ‘I was asked about my feelings towards children and I said, ‘I couldn’t eat a whole one. I hate them.’
Dozens of women have come forward to say the former BBC presenter sexually assaulted them when they were as young as 13.
Sickening crimes under investigation are thought to have taken place over six decades from 1959 in studios, care homes, schools, hospitals and nightclubs. (ANI)
