She is campaigning to get Bronson released. He has been in solitary confinement for 27 years. Says Cherri 'We are going to take his case to the European Court of Human Rights as his imprisonment breaches article 3, which states that 'no one shall be subjected to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment' Bronson is locked in his cage for 23 hours a day. He has no human contact other than the occasional guard. It's a travesty says Cherri. He has served his time and he is a reformed character, finding solace in his art, for which he has won several awards. He should be freed. But the Home Office red tape is exasperating' CHERRI GILHAM VISITING CHARLES BRONSON AT WAKEFIELD JAIL, BRITAIN - 05 OCT 2005

She told the Sunday Mirror: This relationship has driven me to the brink and I have been so low that I have even thought about taking my own life.

Paula found out their marriage was over after Bronson got a friend to deliver the news.

She continued: I sat across from him in prison a couple of months ago when I hit rock bottom over the way he was squandering his chances of parole and I showed him scars on my arm from where I had tried to heart myself.

Paula added that she felt like Bronson had chewed me up and spat me out just like he did with the last woman who fell for him.
