Opposition leader’s wife says convicted drug dealer’s girlfriend is “one of my closest and most trusted friends”; drug-dealer’s girlfriend says she and Opposition leader’s wife are “close friends like sisters”

Published: October 12, 2017 at 8:45pm

In an interview with The Malta Independent last Sunday, Mrs Delia – the Opposition leader’s wife – was asked about “Rebecca Dimech and the Delia family”. Mrs Delia replied, “Rebecca has been one of my closest and most trusted friends for the past six years. She is always there for me.” Her full answer is in the screenshot below.

Promoting the interview on her Facebook page, Miss Dimech refers to the Opposition leader’s wife as “my beautiful Nickie” and then as “oh, my beautiful doll”.

Because the Opposition leader has repeatedly posted enthusiastic comments beneath Rebecca Dimech’s provocative poses on Facebook, Mrs Delia was at pains to dismiss any suspicions people might have had about “infidelity” by telling her interviewer “we laughed our heads off”.

The widespread suspicions she needs to address about her and the Opposition leader’s relationship with Miss Dimech, though, have nothing to do with infidelity.

Miss Dimech, who works in make-up, is an amateur glamour model from the wrong side of the tracks, whose long-term boyfriend, Andre Falzon (known as Id-Diesel) is a convicted drug-dealer well known to the police. He was released from prison last June. She is also in her early 30s while Mrs Delia is a 45-year-old married housewife with five children, who trained as a lawyer and socialises with a very different set. The Opposition leader himself is at least 15 years older than Miss Dimech.

When women are best friends – however unlikely the scenario given that they have nothing in common and move in different worlds, but they say they are best friends – this means that their husbands or boyfriends are unavoidably in constant contact too. In this case, the husband is the leader of the Opposition and the boyfriend is a convicted, lifelong drug-dealer who was released from jail a few months ago.

This issue was not addressed in the interview.

Yesterday, LovinMalta published a piece about my discovery that Adrian Delia was at Massimo Dutti in Sliema shopping for an outfit when he was meant to be at his official swearing-in ceremony already. Beneath, Rebecca Dimech posted a series of angry and defensive comments which are reproduced in full below.

In one, she says, “Me and Dr Nickie” – Mrs Delia – “are close friends like sisters”. She also says that her motto is “sexy till I die”.

The comments, which were up until last night and seen by several people who took screen-shots, were deleted today.

    “She is a beautiful person, both inside and out.” Pure trash Facebook-speak.

  2. Reader says:

    You don’t call your best friend Dr so & so but you call her by her first name.

    It’s evident that their ‘close’ relationship is something different.

  3. canon says:

    It wouldn’t surprise me if Rebecca Dimech is one of those 300 new PN members.

  4. antoine says:

    I’m so sure that inside Rebecca Dimech is beautiful.

  5. Melissa says:

    “Sexy till I die”

    Sexy comes in different types. There’s sleazy sexy, for instance.

  6. Genn says:

    No emotional intelligence. I don’t know what her relationship with these Delias is and quite frankly I don’t even care since this is not contributing to the well-being of our country.

    I do know, however, that in these situations, if there’s no relationship with the Delias, or if it is, as she claims, a family friendship, then the best thing she should do for herself, for herself, is to take her Facebook page down and step aside as she herself has said she is only a friend to the Delias.

    Rebecca Dimech shouldn’t get herself hot under the collar if she herself has said she is a friend to the Delia family.

  7. Yes, exactly. Mrs Delia “laughed her head off” at the suggestion of “infidelity” – but it’s not THAT kind of blow job people are talking about.

    • Osservatore says:

      Indeed. Have been waiting for the blow job elephant (in the room) to raise its head from day one. Surprisingly it did not. This is going to make Michelle Muscat look like a girl guide.

  8. concerned says:

    “She is always there for me”. Now what exactly might that sentence be referring to?

  9. They consented to be tested by journalists, when they were using cocaine/cannabis? Nuts.

  10. I know. Terrible, isn’t it. What does it say about Mrs Delia that this is her “closest and most trusted friend”? It’s obviously not because they have anything in common. So it must be something else.

  11. jcc says:

    Maybe the “bunch of losers” are the many people who supported the Nationalist Party for more than 50 years especially after Independence. And now what are they are going to do? Who knows?

  12. Gez says:

    The only thing that’s grounded is the PN in Opposition.

  13. Wilfred Camilleri says:

    Not to mention that she can’t write one sentence in correct English if her life depended on it. Did she even graduate from kindergarten?

  14. Crazy says:

    The more I read about these Facebook comments and stupid ‘likes’, the more I see how we are so surrounded by people who either suffer from serious personality disorders, or who live deceptive lifestyles, in one way or another, with hidden bizarre and crooked character traits.

  15. Fred the Red says:

    Maybe Becca is intentionally labelling Dr Nickie a doll to underline that she is in fact the real thing and her bestie is merely someone to play around with.

  16. Lucrezia Borgia says:


  17. Evarist Saliba says:

    Are we really supposed to laugh out loud?

  18. Gez says:

    Can you blame him? He probably found himself having to deal with childish behaviour within his own ranks when he took it for granted that the ones within his political nucleus had their maturity, ethics and morals on par with proper European values.

    I don’t think he could be faffed with dealing with the pervasive amoral familism and infantilism.

  19. Jonathan Mercieca says:

    Sorry to disagree but I detach myself from just one of your observations namely that we live “in a not so normal country”. In my opinion we live in a totally abnormal country.

  20. Desert Lizard says:

    Bimbos of the world, unite.

  22. A Camilleri says:

    Ken to Barbie…. and Sir Cliff Richard.

  23. pronoia says:

    In barely four months? You must be joking, the mess has long been coming as certain PN players have failed to recognise the weasels in their midst and to oust them.

  24. Neil says:

    Andre Falzon is a 10th-tier pusher, not that kind of clout in the underworld. Anyway, any serious self-respecting trafficker won’t have a panda to his name.

    All vehicles and property gained by illicit means will be under someone else’s name so if and when a bust comes, the inquiring magistrate will have nothing to confiscate.

    Tano of Burmarrad comes to mind. Can’t believe folks like him get away with it unless they’re seriously greasing .
