The Sun has reported that Ashley Cole has slept with the woman with whom he was sharing illicit texts.
The secretary, who has requested to stay anonymous for fear of losing her job, told The Sun she met Ashley in a hotel and slept with him on two separate dates. The pair had been corresponding via text messages for a while before meeting, she claimed.
Last week it was also reported the footballer had been sending explicit photos to topless model Sonia Wild.
The Sun quotes the unidentified secretary, 30, as saying: “He never once mentioned Cheryl’s name. The papers at the time were saying he and Cheryl were starting a family, but he skirted around that – he said kids would change your life so much.”
Ashley’s infidelities reportedly took place in late 2008 while Cheryl was busy with X Factor and just months after hairdresser Aimee Walton claimed she had slept with the Chelsea defender. Cheryl didn’t wear her wedding ring for months following the initial indiscretions, but she had since claimed she doesn’t regret standing by her man.
Ashley is yet to comment on the allegations.
