Who is the married footballer with the leaked What’s App foursome video?

mystery-man-620x398-620x394.jpg

The Daily Mail reported (said with tongue in cheek) today on a Premier League club denying that footage circulating on What’sApp of a foursome involves one of their star players.

The married man, who cannot be named for legal reasons (likely an injunction), is supposedly a ‘household name’ and none of the women in the video are his wife. Uh oh.

The whole situation is very reminiscent to Alan Pardew trying to cover up his dirty deed  or Robbie Keane attempting to hide his cheeky affair.

Now I don’t want to dish the dirt too hard, but my sources and I all agree on who it looks like. Unfortunately I cannot share this information for legal reasons. Sorry about that, Gossipers.

In other news, Liverpool’s record signing goalkeeper Alisson continues to impress with several clean sheets.

Lifting the Lids on Injunctions

tcoj.jpg

The Gossip Life always does the unthinkable and has in the past, lifted the lids on several prominent injunctions, obtained by A-list celebrities in various fields such as football, music and entertainment.

Tabloids went crazy with their postings of the obtained junctions, withholding the identity of the celebrities involved. We go further with our reveals. Here is our salacious summary:

Injunction: A married footballer obtained an injunction to prevent the story of his affair with 18 y/o lingerie model, Kimberly West, surfacing.

Identity: Sulley Muntari

Former Portsmouth and Inter Milan footballer Sulley Muntari is the married footballer that had the affair with the lingerie model Kimberly West, 18. Muntari, 31, kept his marriage hidden from West and when she discovered the situation, West ended the affair. Injunction obtained in 2011.

Muntari currently plies his trade (see: cashing in) in Saudi Arabia for Ittihad FC, where his lust for 18 y/o white ‘models’ is no doubt satisfied in abundance.

Injunction: Another married footballer obtained an injunction prevent the story of his affairs surfacing.

Identity: Robbie Keane

LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane is the footballer that obtained an injunction to stop the UK press from publishing stories of his sordid affairs. Keane, 35, has been married since 2008 and has one child with  former Miss Ireland contestant Claudine Palmer. One of the affairs took place just before his 2008 wedding and another took place several months after.

Keane is a former star striker for both Tottenham and Liverpool, which, in my journalistic opinion, makes his transgressions even more unforgivable. The man is scum!

Injunction: An A-list actor paid Wayne Rooney prostitute, Helen Wood, for sex, where she used a sex toy on him.

Identity: Hugh Bonneville

He played quite the regal gentleman on Downton Abbey, but Hugh Bonneville has been up to some quite seedy things in real life. The Paddinton actor has been revealed today to have paid reality star Helen Wood £190 for sex during her hooking days back in 2011. Wood also allegedly used a sex toy on the actor.

Bonneville, 52, obtained an injunction to prevent the story from surfacing, but the injunction has been lifted and the story has surfaced

Bonneville has been married since 1998 and has a child.

Injunction: The Premier League manager obtained an injunction to prevent the story of his text affair surfacing.

Identity: Alan Pardew

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.”

About Closeted Gay Footballers…

We here at The Gossip Life have received a lot of emails regarding this subject recently. Most correspondence has been sent from our Gossip Hounds with the odd legitimate source eager to learn, too.

It seems to use that every couple of years a salacious story seems to emerge from the depths of tawdry tabloids that a ‘star Premier League footballer’ is about to take a detour from Narnia to Soho and come out of the closet and admit they’re gay to Mr. Joe Public. It’s a regular feature of the tabloids that we all know and love, and is always known to have the nation engrossed in rife speculation and guessing games.

For example, just in the last couple of days, there’s been a story within the Daily Mail that a ‘married footballer paid off a Transgender glamour model after a fling.’ Guesses have already been aimed on social media, ranging from the key players at top teams like Manchester United to those on the very fringe of the roster of Southampton FC. No one seems to have any inside information, but many have been slandered and accused.

It isn’t the first time either. In 2015, the news story broke in the tabloids that an international footballer and a a Premier League star were soon to announce their true sexuality. Rumours swirled (mostly about Luke Shaw and Chris Smalling) and bookmakers started taking bets, and what happened? Neither of the two anonymous, ‘star Premier League footballers’ ended up coming out.

Why? What happened? What stopped them?

A lot of these titillating headlines are unfortunately based on rumour within the journalism community. Since no one is posting names, there’s no fear of legal repercussions or punishment, and journos feel fine with kindling the fire of supposition and watching the logs burn. The sad part is that, in the rare incidents that there is smoke behind the fire, the footballers see the rampant speculation and fiery reaction, and they get overwhelmed by fear and by publicists, losing the will to leave the closet.

It’s important to remember that in a lot of cases, when someone of a high profile announces they’re gay, their family only discover the news a couple of days beforehand, sometimes on the day of. Outing is an obvious fear and with the fervent desire for gossip, journalists are willing to pay some very desperate friends, family and allies previously unimaginable amounts of cash for an exclusive.

To conclude, I can’t tell you the identifies of the gay footballers from the 2015 story, nor can I tell you the identify of the married footballer that paid off the Transgender model after a fling.

Not right now, anyway.

When I was working at a tabloid during the period, this story was circulating but crushed very quickly. Glad to see it out.
