Alexandra Burke has a tough read in the tabs today (March 16) – her 18-year-old brother has been exposed as a drug dealer.
Aaron Burke has been outed as a cocaine peddler who supplies to “A-list” clients, using his sister’s profile to dish out narcotics to the rich and famous. “I can get the best stuff – as much as you want. I get it for celebrities I’ve met because of my sister,” he was caught saying.
His career path is a second choice, at least – he auditioned for The X Factor twice.
