Brad Paisley and his actress wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley recieved an email from 'a fan' who said her daughter, Clarrie, had life ending brain cancer. The emails and text messages from Kim and Brad to Claire's Mom went on for 10 days. Which is what started the red flags for Kim. The reason Kim kept believing the story was because nobody ever asked for anything. Usually in hoax's like this the 'victim' is asking for money to pay for medical bills, or for a chance to meet the celebrity.
Here's where it gets even more strange. The con artist sent a journal entry in what appears to be a child's handwriting with spelling errors
'My kim I am not scard to die now you filled up my heart with so much love I am sad to leve you because no body can make me smile like you do.'
A smiling sun is drawn in crayon at the bottom: 'love your claire.'
Brad Paisley even got on the phone and sang a Amazing Grace to what he thought was a dying child.
'You're singing to someone's dying kid,' he says. 'And in the middle of it, there's no way that's not real. How can that not be real?'
