Michaella Connolly’s pal partied with a one-eyed convicted criminal before they were busted for cocaine smuggling. Melissa Reid, 20, was photographed smiling as she and other friends posed with hulking Shane Knowles (above) in Ibiza. The shot was taken soon before she claimed a gang on the Spanish island forced her and Michaella, 20, to become drugs mules. Tattooed Knowles, 37, lost an eye in 1999 when he was nearly beaten to death by an alleged associate of crime boss John Palmer, known as Goldfinger, in a Tenerife pub toilet.


Any excuse.
