Has England captain Steven Gerrard been having an affair (again)?
As always, when either England or an English team perform badly people start to look for excuses and this one’s a corker.. England captain Steven Gerrard has again been rocked by internet lies over an alleged ‘affair’..
Allegations are rife on the web and down the local pubs that the footballer had an affair with his wife’s 16-year-old sister following England’s defeat by Germany last weekend. Not only this though, John Terry was so miffed that Gerrard was allowed to keep the captaincy that he got disillusioned with England, hence his terrible World Cup performance..
Within hours the rumours had spread across the world through internet football forums, blogs and social networking sites such as Twitter.
Last night though, the claims were dismissed as ‘rubbish’ by insiders – not least on the grounds that Gerrard’s wife, Alex Curran, does not even have a sister.
Media lawyers have warned that it is virtually impossible to stop malicious gossip from spreading on the internet, largely as a result of the growing popularity of social networking sites.
Fan site Redcafe.net report that the News of the World are planning to break the story this week – while some sources are suggesting Gerrard has a court injunction to keep the girl quiet.
There are also rumours circulating that Gerrard’s wife Alex Curran has been having an affair with a Derby County player.
According to some sites, Gerrard will leave Liverpool at the end of the season after finding out about the affair.
Of course, it could all be scurrilous gossip with no foundation whatsover. Watch this space.
