Newcastle Player In Tabloid Mess With Star And Girlfriend

We had mentioned it in passing, when we reported on the story a couple of days ago, that Newcastle’s Danny Simpson had been seen out with X-Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos, that his girlfriend had their first baby last year, and Danny had to rush back to England for the birth of their first child – a baby daughter – from the US tour.

Danny Simpson – now in tabloid mess

And it turns out his girlfriend, Stephanie Ward, the mother daughter Skye-Lorena, has now said she is expecting their second child, and she had this to say to The Sun today:

“I have a baby on the way and a little girl who’s one-and-a-half. If he wants to leave that, then that’s up to him.” “But I won’t be here for him if he comes back. I don’t care any more. He’s made his bed so he can lie in it.”

And Tulisa Contostavlos tweeted the following:

”I don’t want 2 get in2 a public war of words, but what is being written about me 2moro is absolutely not true.”

The X Factor judge has been sighted with Danny in both Newcastle and Manchester, and from what it appears he’s got himself into a bit of a mess.

Since this blog is about football, we have to hope that if Danny plays today, he’s not affected by the tabloid mess he’s got himself into.

But we also agree very much with what his girlfriend says – that in life you make your own bed and you have to lie in it – and whether that’s comfortable or not is entirely up to you.

We’ll leave it at that.

    I don’t think either of them have seen him play. If it were the case he’d struggle to pull Lisa Riley!

    Does anybody else when reading the words “and she had this to say to The Sun today:” go, “who cares?”

    At the end of the day, this sounds like school yard rubbish, just a shame there are little kids involved.

    Anyway, back to business.

    How’s everyone’s mood? Seems fans are not allowing themselves to be carried away and are keeping cautious.

    Catchy….Don’t you have a birthday to celebrate with your daughter? Stop writing Pardews post match comments and go eat some cake 🙂

    Catchy…..Pretty sure I’ve seen people discussing this topic in the comments section of Ed’s blog. Not suggesting Ed starts writing articles on pr*cks and tw@’s mind, as they get mentioned a fair amount too.

    It is a Saturday match this time – the beginning of the weekend and my dad is coming down for a visit so I cannot afford this game to ruin my weekend (it has taken to many as it is)

    …I am hoping for the best as always, but expecting the worse to be frank 🙂

    …at least it won’t ruin my wekkend then!

    I think tulisa is way better looking. However that’s not what in here for now, this is his private life, he may have gone about it the wrong way and upset his now ex girlfriend but we don’t know the relationship, she could have been lovely, she might have been awful. We simply won’t know the truth.

    This is an article on it. Not posted to show the relationship. Just his girlfriend says he wasn’t offered a new contract at Newcastle an he is on 20,000 a week, 10,000 after tax. Just a little insight, wonder of nufc have offered him a deal or not

    Jesper…..Not buying this, “don’t expect to win, it wont ruin your weekend” thing. But each to their own, lets hope there isn’t a need for anyone to be disappointed come this evening.

    TS……If you were having problems with your gf and thought it may be ending, wouldn’t you say you haven’t been offered a new contract too? Sorry love, have no money 🙂
