Friends and associates of London attacker, Khalid Masood, have said that he is not a “proper Muslim.”
Speaking to The SUN over the weekend, his former friends noted that Masood blew thousands of pound sterling on four-day crack binges and prostitutes before launching the attack.
Masood’s former landlady also, Cassie Havard, said she kicked him out because he was a ‘mad man’ who splashed his money on prostitutes.
She said: ‘He wasn’t a proper Muslim. He shagged prostitutes, smoked copious amounts of crack and stuck knives in people’s faces.
‘He was a mad man. After one four-day crack session, one druggie pal got paranoid and accused him of being an undercover cop.
‘Adrian (Khalid Masood) went absolutely wild and ran to the kitchen to grab the biggest knife he could find. He went back in the room and slashed the guy’s face to pieces.’
Another friend, who is not named, told the newspaper Masood would turn violent and start fights after taking drugs.
‘When high, his mood dominated everything in a nasty way,’ they said.
‘As soon as the picture of the terrorist on a stretcher outside Parliament was published, we suspected it was him.’
Yesterday, Danny Smith, 35, told The Sun how he was left with horrific facial injuries after Masood attacked him 15 years ago in Eastbourne.
The blade sliced his nose open and ripped through his tongue. But he evaded jail after a jury acquitted him of the charges.
In a separate incident, Lee Lawrence said Masood spoke of his desire to ‘kill’ after he slashed a pub landlord, Piers Mott, with a knife.
On Wednesday, Masood killed four people – Leslie Rhodes, 75; US tourist Kurt Cochran, 54; Aysha Frade, 43; and Pc Keith Palmer, 48.
He was born Adrian Russell Elms to an unmarried teenage single mother.
Masood was jailed for two years after slashing a man’s face with a knife outside a local pub, leaving his victim with a gaping wound in his cheek.
