The Gossip Life can exclusively reveal that the Premier League manager that obtained an injunction to prevent the story of his text affair surfacing is current Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew, 54.
Pardew, a journeyman football manager, has managed West Ham, Charlton, Southampton and a scandal apparently. Pardew had been married to wife Tina for several years when he requested pictures from a woman in high heels, stockings and without underwear as a reward for his then team winning an away game. Tina Pardew was believed to be suffering from extreme stress at the time and making suicide threats.
Pardew not only obtained an injunction to prevent the story from surfacing in the UK, but he actively ensured there was no chance any newspaper were considering it; frequently renewing the injunction, according to the Daily Mail. Pardew is believed to have had several injunctions currently preventing stories of affairs, two of which are said to involve a young Liverpudlian singer and the other involving the wife of one of his former footballers.
One can only assume this couldn’t have happened during Pardew’s tenure as West Ham manager. After all, it’s mentioned he wanted saucy pictures “as a reward for his then team winning an away game.”
