Off the Market: Jermaine Pennant
Delete Jermaine Pennant from your “maybe” list, Kickettes, he’s officially off the market. The Liverpool winger recently popped the question to Page 3 model Amii Grove.
Need some background? The pair met after Jermaine made MySpace moves on Amii. Love (and bling) blossomed until Amii caught JP cheating on her via their mansion’s CCTV with another woman. She trashed his Xbox and ended the relationship. So, yes, they’ve gotten past all that.
But here’s where the snark ends. Romantics, prepare your butterflies and baby lambs for release. Amii’s brother Lee, who was a father of two, died this summer after a quad bike accident. Jermaine contacted Amii to pay his respects, visiting the family with flowers and cards. They soon started dating again and Amii says Jermaine proposed on a recent visit to her brother’s gravesite:
“We went to visit Lee’s grave and I was kneeling down laying some flowers when Jermaine bent down next to me and asked, ‘Do you want to get married to me?’.
“It’s been a tough year for the family. Getting engaged to Jermaine is probably a bit of good news that we needed. Lee would have been so happy for us. I never stopped thinking about Jermaine after we split up – and he feels the same way.”
Sure, a marriage proposal at a cemetery is a tad disconcerting, and Jermaine isn’t the best behaving baller out there, but we’re still feeling all warm and fuzzy at this rekindled romance; we wish them all the best. Congratulations!
We know, we’re saddos. We will now return to our regularly scheduled snark.
