Off the Market: Jermaine Pennant

imageimage

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.

    Forget the proposal. I’m still trying to get my head around the fact that the certain way to wound him was to trash his X-Box. What? Is he, like, 6, FFS??

    Arw :) Bless Him , Hes A Sweetie Pie.

    Holy flipping creepy batman… I am totally skeved out by that proposal!

    She is smokin hot and it is a tragedy about her brother. I really hope that JP gets his sh*t together and doesn’t screw some stuff up. If he does, he will have destroyed the grave of her brother as a place of peace and respect for her

    once a cheater, always a cheater…especially if they are a footballer. good luck with that amii. she’s cute, probably deserves better. and totally weird/creepy/gross proposal.

  8. Moonie says:

    I want to see the romance and compassion in this story but its Jermaine Pennant so im failing miserably!

  9. Dreamgirl says:

    So she is in a very emotional state and he thinks he'll get her while her defences are down. Think again girl!! Leopards and spots come to mind.

    I’m vaguely embarrassed that he’s in a Liverpool shirt.

  13. lose that girl says:

    Ew. The proposal couldn't wait even 10 minutes? Ew.lose that girl blog

  14. anon says:

    He is a cheating scumbag!!! I really wish her all the best as there is NO WAY he will remain faithful!! He is not even faithful now and I know that as a FACT!! I hope she realises that this is not a blessing and stays well away.  Pennant deserves to be on his own, no girl should ever give him the time of day!

    Also if i ever caught my boyfriend cheating and saw it on the CCTV knowing that he had let a girl come into the house i shared with him, I would never get back with him…have some self respect!!

    Sorry girls rant over….its all been painted into such a pretty picture but its certainly not!

    They deserve each other. Amii is a gold digging tramp who spend the whole time Jermaine tried to win her back, after their break up, moaning to her friends about just how unromantic and unsympathetic Jermaine is towards her but she had no problem accepting gifts and new blackberrys!

    All shes interested in is clothes and cars – as even quoted on her own facebook page – and Jermaine is the guy to give them to her. She also loves the attention and limelight so she wont care if Jermaine sleeps out as long as shes treated like a queen! No need to mention having self respect you only have to look at her occupation to know she has none. I wonder if she knows about the son Jermaine has from having affairs too? Both idiots. It wont last!!

  16. Vanny17* says:

    lol, it does sound stupid trashing his xbox…but for some reason I would LOVE to do that to someone =)

  17. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    What a story – sounds like a trashy film… I have to say if someone proposed to me over my dead bro's grave I'd be a bit freaked out rather than touched… but the MySpace, CCTV cheating and the X-box trashing is soooo tastelessly brilliant!!!

    Pennant's real ugly but congrats to him.

  19. aristeia says:

    Whoa Jermaine. Out of context, that seems a bit odd… but maybe within the situation it was appropriate. I hope they're happy and that he learned his lesson! Congrats!

  20. Kat says:

    Tasteless, much? I’m sorry if it is coming out sounding a bit harsh, but I’ll be damned if I want my man proposing to me in front of the gravesite of my own brother.

  21. Venice says:

    Trashtastic! I hope they soon make a soap opera based on their lives!

  22. FootballerChick43 - "Mrs.Ballack" says:

    Wow. Thats all I have to say… wow. I can KIND of see where Jermaine was trying to be all romantic and cute, but… my god, I would probably say no.
