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.
