The John Terry sex scandal is a lot like Tuesday’s season premiere of Lost: It’s hard to keep track of all the characters and you have no earthly idea what’s going on, but you just can’t look away. Our scorecard shows that Terry had had an affair with French underwear model Vanessa Perroncel, who is his wife’s best friend and the former girlfriend of fellow Chelsea defender Wayne Bridge. But now comes word that Perroncel may have been playing the field a little more literally than first thought. According to several sources, she has also slept with Chelsea players Adrian Mutu and Eidur Gudjohnsen, plus another “mystery player.” (Handy chart here).
That “mystery player” part is a nice touch, and something that the Tiger Woods scandal is sorely lacking. If only one or two of his mistresses had worn masks.
Perroncel is denying the charges, saying that reports that she had affairs with three other Chelsea players were “ridiculous.” From the London Daily Mail:
Ms Perroncel’s PR Max Clifford said she was finding the attempts to discredit her ‘very unpleasant and upsetting’.
He said: ‘Vanessa told me these accusations are totally untrue. It’s absolute nonsense.
‘She knew many of the Chelsea players from when she worked as a waitress at Elysium nightclub, in London, but just as friends. She has never had affairs with Gudjohnsen and Mutu. But then people trying to make money selling lies about her seem to think you must never let the truth come in the way of a good story.’
It also emerged today that Cheryl Cole has offered her support to devastated Wayne Bridge, Miss Perroncel’s former partner.
Meanwhile Terry’s wife Toni, 28, has flown to Dubai with their twins in the wake of the scandal.
A source close to Miss Perroncel, 33, claimed in The Sun: ‘To say she’s a Chelsea girl is a bit of an understatement.
