UPDATE: Barnaby Davis is a fake

barnabydavis-is-a-fake:

Sorry all for the delayed reply to your messages… I was struggling to keep up! Interestingly not one person defended him or sent hate directed at me.

Anyway Barnaby has deleted his tumblr, wordpress and live journal…. but is still on twitter and tweeting today as “Barnaby”…. unbelievable!

So for those that are on twitter if you could spread the word to his followers it would be appreciated!

Barnaby Davis is a fake. Why do I say this? Where’s the evidence you ask? Well read on…..

barnabydavis-is-a-fake:

I don’t take what I am about to post lightly…. I can no longer sit aside and watch this fake go on. He has deceived a number of people on tumblr and outside of tumblr… old and young… and while I am not sure of his true motive I can only assume it is to pry on the vulnerabilities of young boys since he seems to seek them out on tumblr. So this is going to be a long post but I need to present a number of pieces of key evidence as to why he is a fake.

I first become suspicious of Barnaby more then a year ago and I have slowly been building up the evidence to this point. Barnaby is his real name but he is also commonly known by the name of Barry. He lives in New Jersey, is 67/68 years old, married and has a daughter, has a brother and sister in England and a brother in the US.

Barnaby is very active on a number of social networking sites including tumblr, wordpress, flickr and livejournal plus others (see bottom of post for links). All of his accounts have a common theme of him presenting himself as a teenager to others except for his livejournal where he purposely obscures his answers to questions and posts partly because his wife and daughter are also on livejournal, although they are not as active on there in the last couple of years.

The fake profile he has been using varies a little but has a common theme… he likes to say his age is around 16 (only recently he has now said he is 19 because of some pressure from others who have doubted him), he was abused as a boy, has a boyfriend called Hugh and lives with his mother and sister (and lately has been mentioning his dad as well).

So lets break this fake profile down.

The Pics of Him

Links and screencaps of the latest pics he has been posting of himself are below in which he has said this is “him” several times and that some are “a few years old”. The boy in the pics is actually a son of a Minster from Texas and the boy has autism. The photos have been stolen from the flickr account of “Revbeej”. Some screencaps of the flickr account is below. He has posted several of these pics several times on tumblr.

Some of the recent photos Barnaby has posted of “him”:

He has also posted pics of a younger boy (screencaps below) and sound files of the boy singing that he claims to be him when he was younger. Going by the logo on the boys shirt’s the pics are of a boy from the Tulsa Boys Singers (Tusla, Oklahoma) from around 2007/8 and the boys name is Joseph Bates. He again has stolen pics from the flickr account of the boys father.

Below is links to photos Barnaby has posted and the original source of the photos. There are numerous photos he has posted on wordpress and tumblr and this is just a sample

The majority of the above photos Barnaby posted have come from this album: https://www.flickr.com/photos/batesline/sets/72157600324889866/

Videos Barnaby has posted on his tumblr and youtube account of him singing:

Videos that he has posted of “him” singing were taken from here:

Barnaby is also very good at posting pics of teenage boys and either cropping or blurring the image so your not quite sure if it is him or not and often drops little hints that it might be him. A simple reverse search on these images will often reveal they have been around for a number of years.

Hugh the Boyfriend.

Below is a sample of pics of Hugh that he has posted (screen caps) and after some simple reverse image searching Hugh is in fact a boy from England that currently goes by the screename “YoshiToMario” and has had other screenames when he was younger. His realname is in fact Hugh.

Below is a youtube video (on “YoshiToMario” friends channel) where Barnaby has taken a screencap and also links to several other youtube videos of Hugh/ YoshiToMario that Barnaby has taken screen caps from.

The Videos are from around 2008/2009 and Hugh has had several accounts XxGamingMazterxX which was closed, FiveAwesomeRebels & fiveawesomegamers appear to be old shared accounts. Barnaby seems to post the same screen caps over and over.

Barnaby has posted other pics of Hugh on wordpress and livejournal including some where he is supposedly nude (but the pic is blurred to obscure the boys face and features) but a reverse search on these shows they have been around for sometime – I don’t believe those pics are Hugh/YoshiToMario but of some other teenager/s.

A much older Hugh’s instagram, twitter etc are below.

Below is a pic from Barnabys tumblr (and the original source as well) where he claims the coffee cup has “Hughs name and DNA all over it”… Well it does but he ain’t your boyfriend Barnaby

His Age, Mum/Wife & Sister/Daughter

Barnaby has been active on livejournal.com since 2008. Barnaby goes by the screen name “barnabyd” on livejournal. His wife Gayle goes by the screen name “pookieyamamama” and has been active since 2006 on livejournal. Gayle often refers to Barnaby (Barry) and her only child Sophie (daughter who is now 24/25) and in one post describes how she met Barnaby (Barry) who was 36 and she was 22 when she met him. A screencap of that post is below as well as one where she mentions him being 60 years old in 2007. Doing the simple maths Barnaby age would be 67 or 68. There are numerous other posts where she talks about everyday life with her husband Barnaby (Barry) and her daughter Sophie. I have other screencaps where she tags “Barnabyd” and Sophie but wont post them as this post is getting long enough.

Work.

Barnaby talked a lot on live journal and Wordpress back in 2008 to 2012 about working at a book store/book distributor (textbooks for unis and schools) and looking after the accounts section as well as selling books at the start of a semester etc. He has mentioned about how he has voted several times, been called for jury duty, and other “adult” things etc. He no longer works at the book distributor as apparently it has closed down. Some sample screencaps from his wordpress blog are below.

The abuse

Ok… I am going to be honest here and say I don’t know if he has been abused as he claims or not. I have found posts and have screencaps though where he mentions seeing a psychiatrist etc. All the comments he has made point to it happening along time ago and the ages and timelines he mentions would make him way older then his current claim of 19. I would like to think he is not lying about it but who knows…. So despite him being a fake I am not going to make any further comment for that reason.

One thing I will comment on though is he posted a pic on his tumblr of “himself” and claimed the guy in the picture with him was a pedo. The boy in the picture is Joseph (see earlier section) and the guy in the pics is Joseph’s father. It’s a pretty low act to accuses an innocent guy of such a thing

The Mountain of Other Evidence

I have numerous other screencaps and evidence which is way too much to post. On wordpress and live journal he lies several times about his age claiming to be 22 at one stage then 19 several years later. His wordpress archives from 2010 seem to indicate he was pretending to be 20 something although his later posts indicate about 16.

He talks about how he used to be a “bad boy” in school and he constantly recycles the same stories on wordpress/live journal and lately tumblr. The stories have and “old” feel about them the way he describes school and the teachers. He mentions about driving Sophie (his daughter) to uni, chaperoning her with other girls to NYC, his wife mentions operations he has had etc etc etc …. I could go on and on

Conclusion

So some of you may be wondering why I have posted so much and revealed so much about his life when I could of done it in a couple of sentences and just said “he is a fake”. I don’t believe in making accusations without proper evidence as it is easy to blurt off a few one liners or hide behind anon. I have personally seen a friend here on tumblr constantly accused of being a fake and the impact it had on him when in fact he was real. I have been slowly building the evidence for the last year against Barnaby and have been holding off on presenting it until I was 100% sure he was a fake.

I am sure I will get some haters for this who won’t believe but go look at the links for yourself and go through the archives of his wordpress, live journal etc. The evidence is all there (NB. All information collected above is publicly accessible and available on the internet). Also ask yourself this… have you ever thought at anytime that Barnaby was “wise beyond his years”? How such a young guy was so knowledgeable? Have you had any doubts about him? Where there’s smoke there is fire as the saying goes.

I will say though he has a good blog with interesting posts but it’s a shame that he has to scheme and hide behind a fake persona instead of being himself…. You have hurt alot of people Barnaby… I hate to think what your motives were… especially for the boys that have trusted you….Its time you confess and come clean.
