Although it may seem incredulous that such a bastion of journalistic integrity as the Sun could publish something ficitious to the point of being embarassing, that seems to have been the case.
Last night the Sun online ran a story which read: FOOTIE rising star Tom Cleverley begged a girl for sex after taking her to a B&B – despite dating a Page 3 beauty.
The Manchester United midfielder, 22, bombarded Jade Dawson, 20, with text messages pleading with her to spend the night after kissing her in a club.
Once she was in his room Tom – dating gorgeous Emily O’Hara, 23 – tried to impress the shop assistant by Googling himself to prove he was famous. Jade did stay the night but refused to have sex with Tom – who texted her the next day saying: “Ur loss.”
Jade said: “He got on top of me to try to have sex with me but I told him to get off. He even woke me at 5am for sex but I still said ‘No’.”
Jade from Thornton-Cleveleys, Lancs, was out with pals at a Blackpool club when Tom went up to her without a word and kissed her.
Such a scoop, an England starlet embroiled in late night shenanigans with a gorgeous beauty, ahem, while his page 3 girlfriend sits at home with their four imaginary kids.
Unfortunately such was the level of nonsense being spouted in this poor excuse for a news story that even The Sun, which has been criticised in the past for publishing somewhat dubious tales, realised it wasn’t worth the bother and subsequently removed it.
If they want slappers bedded footballers stories there’s more than enough real ones to print without making ones up lads.
