Thierry Henry Gets Made Up
The woman behind the divorce of Thierry Henry and his wife Claire has been revealed.
She’s a celebrity make-up artist, named Sadie Hewlett.
We use the term ‘celebrity’ with just a smidge of sarcasm because some of Sadie’s celeb clients include the Cheeky Girls and Jodie Marsh. Perhaps a more accurate description would be ‘non-celebrity’ makeup artist, but whatevs. She also lists John Terry as a client, and met Thierry after making him up for an advert he was shooting.
Claire discovered her hubby of four years was doing the nasty with the lippy wielder when she saw some sexy messages on Thierry’s mobile phone. Shortly after she confronted Thierry with the messages, the marriage broke down and Thierry headed off to Barca.
Side note: Kickettes, if you were having an affair, wouldn’t you delete the bloody messages within a nanosecond of them arriving? Wouldn’t you guard your mobile phone like a paranoid affair-haver? Wouldn’t you consider hiring someone whose sole purpose in life was to guard the mobile phone in question?
The divorced couple are now in negotiations over the settlement and it looks like she’s going for the big bucks: £10 million. If she gets it, it would be the biggest payout a football player has ever had to make.
We’d love to cheer at the cash out for the ho-out, but the Henry’s daughter, Tea, is up in the mix of a bitter situation. Thierry wants his two-year-old daughter to fly out to see him and stay in Spain frequently, but Claire says it would be too disruptive for such a young child to be away from home for lengthy periods of time.
We’re thinking: ugh.
We’re also wondering what celebrity Sadie will making up next? Our money is on someone from Big Brother 1. Or someone who auditioned for Big Brother 1 and is selling their story of the experience.
