The Curious Relationship of Rayelan and Alex, the 13th Duke of Manchester

Or- What do psychopaths do when they miscalculate? Call Home to the CIA? 

See The Duke of Manchester, from which much of this is drawn.

In 2009 Laura, the Duchess of Manchester, called Rayelan up to ask she take down what she said was a libelous slander. Raye did so without checking whether or not it was true. Soon afterward, Wendy, the former Duchess of Manchester, former wife of Alex, 13th Duke of Manchester, contacted Rayelan through the radio station where RMN Radio aired, The MicroEffect.  Wendy offered proof the article was entirely accurate.

Alex had committed bigamy when he married Wendy in 1993, knowing full well he was still married to his first wife, Marion, who he tried to murder in 1984 after a few weeks of marriage.

Later, Rayelen would explain to Melinda she, Rayelan, is NOT A JOURNALIST and issues of the truth are irrelevant to what appears on RMN. Yep. She said that – and she clearly means it.

Here is some part of what she did not think was relevant.

Alex is diagnosed as being psychopathic. (See Transcript, bottom page 9)

Alex left a broad wake of scandal behind him from the time he was released from prison until he landed in Orange County in 1992. Unfortunately, most of this was covered in off shore media.

hostel, and decided to sell his title.”(see article)

Wendy was employed full time, had money in the bank, and had been employed since she was 16. Best of all, she was an American citizen and Alex was trying to evade deportation. Alex had never mentioned a previous marriage. On the marriage license he also neglected to mention this salient fact. Marriage Certificate

In 1996, at the insistence of his mother, Lady Mary Montagu, Alex cooperates with filling out papers for the divorce. Finally. However, he does not mention this to Wendy.

In 2006, having succeeded to the title of Duke of Manchester at his father's death three years previously, Alex receives a million dollars from the sale of the Manchester Jewels. He decides it is time to dump Wendy.

This does not work as well as he hoped. His demand for physical custody of their two children and alimony fail when Wendy's attorney confronts Alex on the stand with his bank balance and the psychological reports are read by the court.

   December Early in the month - Legal Separation documents are served on Wendy.

                The couple are still living together as man and wife on Prescott Street, Aliso Viejo,                 CA.  Papers were issued 16th November 2006.

                   5 - Call to Wendy's workplace. Alex phoned her work and informed the other
                      receptionist that he had issued a restraining order against her. This was followed
                      up with a call from the sheriffs’ department that this action had been filed and 
                      she would be required to appear in court and answer to these charges. 

                          Alex’s claimed she had chased him around the house with a knife. 

                          Wendy was immediately evaluated by court appointed counselors to 
                       determine if she was a fit mother. It was determined that she could have 
                       unsupervised visitations with the children during the divorce proceedings. 

                          During the divorce all of the exchanges with the children were at the police

                          were wearing. 

The story of the Second Marriage of Alexander, 13th Duke of Manchester

On September 15, 2008 the reserved issues are heard and the divorce is final. Alex had remarried the previous September to Laura Anne Smith of Holly, Michigan.  

Reporter's Transcript of Judge's Ruling  -  Transcript documents physical 
custody residing with mother and the evasive actions taken by Montagu to
evade revealing his financial status during divorce. 

Alex flees California to avoid paying the ordered support. The Manchester Trust begins making the monthly payments formerly sent to Alex to Wendy.

On June 5, 2009 Wendy receives a phone call from Alex, telling her they were never married. The Manchester Trust is forced to suspend payments until the matter can be heard in court. Information on this scandalous behavior is reported in the media. The court date is set for July 19, 2011.

This is where Rayelan enters the scene, ignoring the evidence Wendy offered.

Rayelan then meets Alex and Laura for lunch near her home in Watsonville, California. A close relationship is born. Rayelan adores celebrities. 



Raye moves to Ohio with the unpaid assistance of her friends, the Lee-Powers Family. Hauling the mountain of stuff Raye, Hoarder Extraordinaire, drags with her must have been a daunting task. When the Lee-Powers Family arrived to begin the move they realized nothing was packed. Raye can't do these things for herself.

At the beginning of 2011 Rayelan has the Duke of Manchester on her radio show so he can expound on how unjustly he has been treated.

While RMN Readers are assisting Rayelan she is sending money to the Manchesters to keep them afloat. Rayelan loves celebrities.

Now, let's remember the Fundraiser for the Rumor Mill News Retreat in Ohio, where donors, read this investors, will be able to stay and enjoy the sylvan delights of nature. Did you donate? What have you heard about this enterprise lately? If I were you I would demand an answer that includes an accounting of what happened to the tens of thousands of dollars RMN Readers forked over.

I talked to Raye a couple of times while she was living in a travel trailer at the RMN Ohio Retreat. She complained about the insects, who left welts on her skin, and living conditions, which, when I saw the place, was entirely understandable.

I understand the Lee-Powers Family, or at least some of them, are still living there. At the time I had yet to hear anything about the Manchesters, whose insane lives I was about to be dragged.

At one time I believed Rayelan's blundering around about the Manchesters was just stupidity and failure to do any due diligence. The evidence now points to a far uglier possibilities.

I know for a fact Rove, and others have been gunning for me for years. RMN continues its quest for 'truth' ignoring the facts and functioning as a neat little disinformation site hosted on CIA servers. Do you think Rayelan gets a bill from the CIA for this? Why would the site be there? That was likely one of the questions which caused the OITC to drop RMN and Rayelan. Oops. But, thankfully loyal Readers did not notice.

But did Rayelan, perhaps, receive a new 'assignment?” Note that Manchester has also been used as an agent by the CIA, according to his own report and that of others.  


Raye is living in Ohio but has now moved from the less than delightful RMN Ohio Retreat to a house in the City of Ashtabula.

June - Rayelan called me, asking I do an hour show on 'RMN Radio.' She could not handle the daily show, she said. To taxing for her failing health.

Having done radio for a number of years, I agreed. The same day I was asked by BBS to do a show there.

On July 19, 2011, the lawsuit heard in the High Court of the Chancery, London, on the issue of  the legitimacy of the two children of the non-marriage of Alex Montagu and Wendy Buford Montagu.  Children have rights as beneficiaries.

                            Laura by Rayelan, AKA Raye Smith.

Rayelan worked hard to persuade me to help her dear friends who were being so unjustly maligned in the media. She was standing by them and talked me into putting up a website for them, helping them with PR, and beginning work on a book. Payment would come, she promised.

Soon, I found myself focused on the Manchesters and bringing in income for RMN. Rayelan asked me to take over the advertising in September of 2011.

Selling the Michael Jackson Tapes, which Alex claimed he owned, was then suggested. 

Of course, Alex's claims these were proprietary and had never been publicly viewed were bogus.  They had appeared on You Tube on  Mar 16, 2011 - Michael Jackson playing hide and seek in an LA hotel and at Neverland.


Michael Jackson met both Alex and Wendy on the day of the funeral for the first time, despite Alex's claims to the contrary that they were old friends. 

Unable to obtain an invitation to the service in London Michael Jackson discovered one of his acquaintances knew Duke Alex, who would be attending. Michael was promptly invited to attend as the guest of the Duke and Duchess, at this time Wendy.

1997 – When Alex met Michael – The Memorial Service for Diana, Princess of Wales
                 13  - Alexander, Viscount of Mandeville,  and Wendy, Viscountess of Mandeville,
                    attend the memorial service for Diana Princess of Wales at  St. James Episcopal
                    Church in Los Angeles. There, they become acquainted with Michael  Jackson,
                    who returns with them to their hotel room to visit with the family, which then
                    includes their young son, Alex. Viscount Alex photographs Michael playing with
                    young Alex in their hotel room at the Hyatt Regency.

Michael asked the family to spend the day at Neverland the next January, for Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Day. He never saw them again, likely tired of turning down the get rich quick schemes Alex continued to attempt to sell him.

He briefly reentered the lives of the Manchesters when, unknown to Wendy, Alex provided a declaration to the court then preparing the case against Jackson for molesting a young boy he knew. It is likely Alex believed he would be one of many litigants not just one of two, which is how things fell out.

Realizing Wendy would not lie Alex took evasive action which erupted into the main stream media.

25 -  NBC News by Mike Taibbi  Jackson witness says he’s been threatened 
Montagu claims caller has told him to stay away from trial.  
20 - The Declaration made by Alexander, Duke of Manchester, on the abuse of
                         his son by Jackson was entered into the court record.

Alex claimed to own the videos. In fact, they were the property of his former and much abused wife, Wendy. But Alex stole them along with all of her other property so had physical possession. He must have tried selling them before because copies of parts of them are up on YouTube. Wendy had no copies until I sent them to her in 2012.

And this is the end of Part One. Stay tuned for Part Two
