Beauty Queen Who Faked Cancer Pleads Not Guilty To Scam

A beauty queen who shaved her head to con friends and family into believing she was battling cancer has denied pocketing thousands from the scam.

Ex-Miss Pennsylvania International US, Brandi Lee Weaver-Gates, pretended she had chronic lymphocytic leukemia in March 2013.

The 23-year-old is accused of pocketing cash from fundraisers organised by her loved ones to pay for her fake treatment, the last of which raised $14,000 (£8,948).

Following her arrest, Weaver-Gates was charged with felony counts of theft by deception and receiving stolen property.
