Brad Paisley And His Wife Were Victims Of Child Cancer Scam

Brad Paisley and his wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, were recently scammed by a woman who claimed her dying child was a big fan of the actress. Brad and Kimberly appeared on ABC’s Nightline last night (Wednesday, November 6th), where they shared the story of receiving an email from a woman named Carrie who reached out to Kimberly because her alleged daughter, Claire, was dying from neuroblastoma, a type of pediatric cancer.

Kimberly said that dozens of emails, phone calls and text messages were exchanged between herself and Carrie over the next several days, including pictures of Claire, snapshots of journal entries and songs that Claire had recorded for Kimberly. Brad even placed a call to the girl during which he sang her several songs.

Kimberly says red flags raised when Carrie didn’t have an address for Kimberly to send flowers to the funeral after Claire died. Carrie also emailed Kimberly writing, “I don’t need you to pray for me. Doesn’t seem like God hears much of anything these days.” Kimberly and Brad later discovered that the photos of the imaginary Claire were taken from the blog of a young girl in Southern California who is really suffering from neuroblastoma.

Brad said, “That’s the sickest part about this to me. That is the part that when I start to talk about that, that’s when I get really mad. That there were real kids, that there were real photos involved.” Brad has vowed to discover the true identity of Carrie and make sure that she is unable to scam anyone else.
