The former Liverpool defender, who dreams of one day visiting the nonce wing of a prison, confirmed he has no idea what drives his troubling behaviour .
He said: “When I’m Aunt Sally, I feel ten foot tall. I can walk into any bar in town and feel like the whole world is watching me.”
Asked when he first started to dress like an old woman, Lawrenson responded: “It was my 40th birthday party. I must have had a blackout, because I woke up in a hotel linen cupboard, covered in someone else’s blood, and dressed as a female pensioner.
“When hotel staff heard my screams, they helped me down and asked me what my name was…I don’t know where it came from, but I instantly said ‘I am Aunt Sally’….(starts to sob) and I’d never felt so fucking alive.”
A source close to Lawrenson insisted transforming into a cross-dressing weirdo has been good for himself and his family.
“Mark is a much happier person now that he dresses as Aunt Sally. It has forced his entire family to distance themselves from him, and has ultimately alienated him from everything that was good within his life.
