Is Owen Hargreaves Back on the Market?

It looks like Owen Hargreaves and his long time girlfriend Janelle Khouri are no longer together.

We’ve yet to dig up a 100% verification on this bit of goss, but come to think of it, we don’t remember seeing Janelle heading off to Moscow in May with the rest of the WAGs during the Champions League Final.  There were a few whispers around that time that all was not well between the two. 

We’re going to go out on a limb and speculate that the reason they broke up was because of Owen’s debilitating addiction to fruit-flavoured beverages and refusal to share his secret non-frizz curl enhancing beauty products with the mass market.

No? Okay, moving on.

OH is now rumoured to be dating sports reporter Georgie Thompson. We’ll keep you posted.

Frank Lampard: Milan Calling?


image Our sources tell us Frank Lampard is booked on a flight to Milan this morning today.  Perhaps he fancied a quality expresso and all is well on the Chelsea contract front.

To our dear Kickettes in blue, could the JT/Lampsy era of wuv be coming to an end?  Be still, our slash-footie hearts.

UPDATE: Alas, we and our source got this wrong. Lampsy was seen training today with the Blues and our hopes that he will stay at Chelsea live on another day.




Elen Rives: Red and Ringless


Elen Rives was seen out in London without her engagement ring the day after Frank Lampard was papped at a pub with a ‘mystery’ blonde.

Looks like a fairly innocuous kiss that’s been spun into a story to us – maybe Elen just felt her diamonds clashed with her outfit.

We’re much more interested in the amount of beer Frank’s got in front of him at the bar. Thirsty, Lampsy?


Rumour Mill: Nasty Boys


Two interesting ‘blind item’ rumours in our inboxes, Kickettes. 

The first rumour comes courtesy of the tabloids:

“Which footballer is splashing the cash to make sure his mistresses keep their seedy shenanigans secret? He’s spending more on that than on his own wedding…“

Hmm… who’s due to get married soon?

The second extremely juicy story comes from our boys at The Spoiler, (who pinky swear this is true and that it came from a club insider): 

It involves an EPL/England player who got it on with two hoochies in the back of his car during his club’s Xmas party.  But that’s not all.  He was too drunk to drive home so he rang his wife to come and pick him up afterwards.

Classy and assy, yes?

Want a hint? Most of our readers quite like his wife. And it’s not the rather infamous Christmas party we all heard about either.

UPDATE: via TS on story no. 2: “And remember, the rumour doesn’t state that the incident definitely took place during the most recent festive season

Exiting the Club? Danielle Lloyd


Ladies with hubbies that work the pitch, be warned: Danielle Lloyd may soon be single again.


After the news broke of a girl claiming an affair with Jermain Defoe, Danielle quickly moved out of his house (the mansion Jermain shared with his fiance up until his involvement with Dani and the cat fights and implants and so on).  The story from the girl JD slept with? They’ve been together for seven years, and it involves him wearing her double-G cup bra on his head

Danielle has spoken out about it all, saying:  “These past few days have been hell for me. But I trust Jermain. I have to believe him when he says he has not cheated on me. I love him 100%. I don’t know why someone would do this to us. First us, then poor Cheryl and Ashley Cole. Women who sell these stories have no self respect. They want to make money and be famous for saying they have slept with soccer stars. But they have no shame.“

Rumour also has it Danielle went to a clinic on Harley Street to have some work done.  We’d say forget about the bod and focus on the slow and painful torture of the hairdresser who put these extensions in. 

Side note: what kind of a hooch is Jemaine, btw? After Danielle moved out, he was seen with his Tottenham crew at Chinawhites (would someone please remind us of the exact year this club was ‘it’? ‘98? ‘97? Are there no other places in London to be seen drunk off your ass and falling down?)  Jermain’s friends included Ledley King, (who was carried out by security, lost his shoe, and hit the pavement), Jermaine Jenas and Mr. Defoe’s new, rather non-fetching female friend.  Random: Charlotte Mears and co were also at the club on the eve of the drunken shoe shenanigans. Quite the co-inky dink, but they stayed well clear of each other.

Anyone else getting bored senseless by the tell-alls and the skeeves? Shall we put an embargo on these stories for a week or two whilst we bathe in bleach?
