Shoe thief Church
09:30 30 September 2006
Charlotte Church keeps stealing shoes from the shop she bought her mother.
The singer bought her mum Maria a shoe shop in Cardiff to give her something to focus on after she checked into rehab for depression last year.
Maria told Britain's Closer magazine: "The shoes are fabulous - at least they would be if Charlotte didn't keep trying to steal half my stock."
The former pub landlady was treated at London's Priory clinic after Charlotte, 20, found her unconscious having taken a lethal cocktail of painkillers and alcohol.
Maria began self-harming herself after she discovered her husband, Charlotte's step-dad James, had a six-month affair with one of her friends.
Maria has now recovered and is back with James.
Her new shop is called Chiesa - Italian for church.
