Hillary Devey Children; Meet His Son Mevlit Brewster-Ahmet
Hilary Lorraine Devey’s only child is Mevlit Brewster-Ahmet. Hilary Devey died in Morocco on June 11, 2022, after a protracted illness.
Hussein, a Turkish businessman, was Hilary’s long-term companion. Because his father Hussein was already married to another lady with five children, Mevlit’s parents were unable to marry. Hilary discovered Mevlit’s drug use when he was 17, and he was at boarding school.
She booked him into a £7,500-a-week treatment center after learning of his addiction, but it took him two years to go off heroin with the use of an unique drug blocker implanted in his stomach.
Mevlit was diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder and bipolar disorder, according to reports.
Aside from these facts, little is known about Mevlit.
