Cumberbatch’s people said on the engagement’s announcement he only dated Hunter casually since summer 2014, getting serious in late summer. This means their first date was in June and she became pregnant as soon as or before they became serious (her baby was born 1/6/2015).
The story these May 2014 photos paint a picture of Hunter desperate to leech off his fame and fortune. Remember she was living in New York at this time. How was Hunter to ensure she could continue to lap up the adoration that comes from being around a celebrity when he’s on a different continent? Well we know what her answer was now.
Even if you already knew Hunter was a gold digger, these photos are shocking because they show how persistent she was to worm her way into his limelight.
We have no less than three photos of him, two fan photos, where she is creepily lingering and loitering in the background. She was no more than an old acquaintance to him at this time. In the photo taken by Jamie Byng she appears to be posing by how she stuck her nose in the air, even though Cumberbatch and Byng could care less about her or they’d have included her in the photo. (See our previous posts on how her nose in the air is her signature move to display her sense of importance and entitlement.)
One year has passed and a very pregnant Hunter in April 2014, moments after recoiling from her husband’s kiss and calling over Byng to avoid acknowledging Cumberbatch, is keen to make sure her head is as close to Byng’s…on the other side of her new husband’s. Compare how happy she is and willing to hold Byng’s shoulder to the countless videos of Hunter refusing to let her husband hold her hand, shrinking at his kisses, removing his hand from her back, and so on and so forth. And notice how Cumberbatch is made to look a fool while his wife is grinning with her head nuzzled up to another man: a look she has never displayed when at her husband’s side. Most certainly not in the seconds leading up to this shot.
