Splitsville? Michael Chopra and Heather Swan


Splash News/KEYSTONE Press

So, this is weird.  It looks like Michael Chopra and his wife Heather have broken up.

The couple only got married last month (on Friday the 13th, mind you), and reports started surfacing earlier this week that Michael (who plays for Sunderland) had moved out of the family home and was living in rented accommodation down the road.

Things started going pear-shaped at the breakfast reception the morning after the wedding, when Michael and Heather had a blow out fight in front of a group of guests.  Michael flew back early from their honeymoon and left Heather’s ‘just married’ arse out in the Caribbean to drink pina colada’s on solo. 

FYI, Heather was one of the WAGs featured in the WAGs Boutique program, which has left many a relationship decimated in its wake.

Here’s the thing: surely, if you’ve been dating for the amount of time this pair has, you would know each other well enough to decide whether marriage was the direction you want to take, yes? How can a relationship disintegrate so quickly?

Perhaps the wedding cake was made of marzipan.  If anything can devastate a marriage, it’s having your other half feed you a 40-year-old fruit cake infused with toxic levels of sherry. That’s got bad news written all over it.

cheers TFO!

    I was watching SAFC TV the other day, and the interviewer was asking Chops how his summer went, and congrats on the marriage etc etc, and Michael just looked a little weird, and said, “yeah, um, I got married.” By the look on his face, I knew something must be up. Poor guy. He seems like a real sweetie, and the baby is absolutely frick frackin’ adorable.

    Wow. Thats sad. I'm no where near an expert on this situation (considering the longest relationship I've ever managed to hold is three months.. but they've all been complete pricks so I think its within good reason) but actually the same thing happened around here, except it was DURING the wedding. Apparently he picked out the wrong wedding ring other than the one she wanted, so… she threw a fit right in the middle of the wedding, turned the table with the unity candles on it over, nearly burnt the entire church down, and stormed out while yelling obscenities in his face. The two haven't seen each other since. So, I guess its just anything that could throw them over the edge.

  3. Give them my number folks… They need professional help if they want to stay together of course. Artists, such a troubled life…

    Ah sweet love.
    A month??!

    Poor Michael though. Split up with his wife of A MONTH and got sent off in a pre season friendly last night.
    Its just one of those things when everyone is against you… :(

    The only Chopra I know is the one that writes books. I honestly have no idea who this is.

    Well, I’d move out of the family home/leave my honeymoon early if I were him and she came down to dinner wearing this outfit.

  9. That surely has to be the quickest marriage break up ever, at your wedding breakfast!!!

    What the hell could have gone wrong?? Ooh, maybe he couldn’t *ahem* perform on the wedding night?  Surely that’s grounds for divorce!!

    what’s with her ‘smile’?  this woman has the ugliest facial expressions i have ever seen.

  11. Squee says:

    Oh wow, this message board filters cuss words! Ace!

  12. Squee says:

    In every picture I’ve seen of that girl she has a disgusted expression as if she has to handle a tramp’s #### day after day.

    Sorrry to be so crude but the expression on that birds face is woeful.

  13. MrsMichaelOwen says:

    Ahh! They were such a cute couple. I think they should try there marriage again as splitting up over what could have been a petty argument after 24 hours? Isnt that shoter than britney spears? Werent they expecting a baby? x

    They had a little boy 5 months ago, I believe. Dying to know what caused the split, I love a bit of scandal. No doubt we will find out more in the Sunday rags.
