London: Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand finds himself in the middle of a sex row after names of 10 alleged secret lovers were revealed in the British High Court on Wednesday, as reported by The Sun.
Ferdinand was suing over a Sunday newspaper story about an affair with an interior designer, when lawyers portraying him as a shameless love cheat named 10 girls who have claimed their relations with the 32-year-old defender.
According to reports seven women claim to have bedded the father-of-three while he was going out with Rebecca Ellison now his wife and mother of all his three children. Pop Idol contestant Sarah Whatmore (30), Brazilian model Tatiane Rosalino (26), Virgin Air Hostess Lauren Alcorn (31), Israeli models Lilach Yafe (29) and Tslil Sela (22), topless model Holly McGuire (33), stripper Coralie Robinson (22), Catrine Shepherd (27), Savannah Benson (26) and interior designer Carly Storey (32) claim to have had flings with the former England skipper. Storey is the woman whose revelations sparked the lawsuit and Alcorn claims Ferdinand paid £7,500 for her to have an abortion during a five-year affair that began in January 2003.
Ferdinand is the third United star to have recently been linked with a sex row after Wayne Rooney and Ryan Giggs. Rooney had cheated on his wife with prostitute Thompson and also had a threesome with Thompson and another woman.
Giggs found himself in trouble after his romps with former Miss Wales Imogen Thomas and more shockingly his brother Rhodhri's wife Natasha were exposed.
