Boyfriend stands by Jean with diamond

JEAN TREACY’S boyfriend has shelled out thousands on a stunning engagement ring for her, it has been disclosed.

Keith Fahy has forgiven Jean for cheating with Eamonn Lillis and bought her a huge diamond ring. A source said: “Jean is wearing his ring. He spent a fortune on it.” The source said that she is a lucky girl.

Keith (40), who is a merchandising manager, is now planning to get married to Jean at a foreign location. A source said: “He is very devoted to her and has stood by her, despite everything.”

They had been due to get married in Italy last June, but the wedding was subsequently called off when Jean embarked on her affair with Lillis in October 2008.

Jean was believed to have fled the country shortly after giving evidence at the Central Criminal Court.

Her evidence formed a major part of the prosecution's case.
