Top 15 Athletes Linked to Adult Entertainers

That’s the dream isn’t it? Making it big in the sports world and then settling down with some hot young number who is with seemingly limitless partners for a living? Okay, maybe it’s not the dream for everyone.

Whether or not you think that sounds like an ideal life, plenty of professional athletes have found themselves in the company of adult entertainers. It makes sense from a certain point of view. Athletes are in great shape and take care of themselves. Adult film stars are also fit and are probably among the only people who can keep up... if you know what I mean.

But the debate over the cleanliness of the adult film industry aside, there are numerous athletes who have been linked to these stars. Some have simply been spotted in public together, while other times a lengthy relationship unfolds but then blows up in everyone’s face later (no pun intended).

Whether you like the industry or not, keep on reading because here are 15 athletes who have been linked to adult film stars. Whether they have settled down and gotten married, hooked up and gotten caught, or have simply been seen together and the media created a stink about it, enjoy the list, you know the people on it enjoyed themselves…allegedly. This list is ordered from least notorious/may not have happened, to most notorious and definitely happened.

One honorable mention goes do Forrest Griffin, who is rumored to have dated Brittney Skye years ago. If so, good for him, but there is very little proof to these rumors and they seem to come from message boards deep inside the shady underbelly of these dark caves we call the internet.

15 15. Dwight Howard and Mary Carey

This one is so delightfully outrageous it might just be nonsense, but for a story like this I really hope it is true. Mary Carey met Dwight Howard when the two met at an airport and like two people from opposite genders often do, they started shooting the breeze. They stayed in contact for a few months after. During this time, Howard is reported to have tried to get Carey to leave the adult business, with no success. Effectively ending their friendship, courtship, or whatever one wants to call it: he entered Chris Fitzpatrick's (her boyfriend, from N'Sync) house and dropped his pants after she concealed the two of them in a washroom.

14 14. Nate Robinson and Samone Taylor

Three time NBA Slam Dunk Contest champion Nate Robinson was linked to adult film star Samone Taylor back in July 2010. Taylor tweeted several times about Robinson back during his time with the Boston Celtics. The media went absolutely insane at these tweets, but both insisted that they were just friends. Many called shenanigans on the two of them but nothing was ever proven.

13 13. Willis McGahee and Gizelle

Back in 2012, two time Pro Bowler Willis McGahee was rumored to have been dating Gizelle. McGahee is known to have nine children from eight women. Back in August of this year, it was reported that McGahee and girlfriend Marsheveet Hooker (yep, that's her last name) were expecting a child. In 2012, neither he nor Gizelle denied their involvement, but neither confirmed anything. The important thing to remember is that he dated an adult film star in 2012 and in 2014 he got someone named Hooker pregnant. You can't make this stuff up.

12 12. Barry Bonds and Devon Shire

11 11. Rob Gronkowski and Bibi Jones/Britney Beth

Possibly one of the best looking women ever to bless the space in front of a camera took some great pictures with New England Patriots' tight end Rob Gronkowski back in 2011. The two reported that they were friends, but that nothing serious had happened. Jones stated that part of one of her side projects had her hanging out with athletes on a regular basis,and when Gronk was unable to come up with an excuse he just apologized to Patriots' owner Robert Kraft. I hope Kraft just high-fived him but life is rarely that awesome.

10 10. Chuck Liddell and Jayden James

9 9. Marcus Jordan and Rachel Roxxx

The son of the GOAT sent a tweet to Rachel Roxxx back in May 2012 that essentially implied that they had done the deed and that he intended to see her again. The message looked like it may have been an attempted direct message, but who really knows. Again this seems like a situation when some men would start looking for high fives, but not his Airness Jr. He said that he had been hacked and that it was a clever prank, but denied any involvement with Ms Roxxx.

8 8. Scottie Upshall and Gina Lynn

Scottie Upshall, who has played for the Nashville Predators, Philadelphia Flyers, Columbus Blue Jackets, Phoenix Coyotes and now the Florida Panthers, reportedly got with Gina Lynn back in 2011. According to her now ex-husband, Travis Knight, her sleeping around and her affair with Upshall ruined their relationship. She has been quoted as saying she slept around because she needed to "get some."

7 7. Rashad Butler and Mya G

4 4. Jennifer Capriati and Dale Dabone

Tennis lingo doesn't have a lot in the way of innuendo type words, so this is not going to be nearly as funny as I'd like. I mean, I could say Dabone was her "ball-boy" or that the two of them frequently made an awful "racket" that kept the neighbors up. I could even say that he "returned her serve" (see it's a stretch already), but not all sports are ideal for somewhat NSFW references.

3 3. Tito Ortiz and Jenna Jameson

via drfunkenberry.com

Tito Ortiz, who some like to call the most overrated mixed martial artist of all time, had a lengthy relationship with the most successful adult film actress of all time, Jenna Jameson. The two have children together, but their relationship has been a rough one. Tito was arrested in 2010 for domestic abuse and despite being married the two never really seemed to be particularly content with the relationship.

2 2. Tiger Woods and...A Few of Them

I'm not sure whether this is a good thing or a bad thing, but Tiger Woods is on this with three film stars and one Playboy model. Say what you will about the fact that he was married with kids, but Tiger was scoring like a real pro.

1 1. Jon Koppenhaver/War Machine and Christy Mack

via whoatv.com

This duo is higher on this list than Tito/Jenna and Tiger and his parade of women because the events of last month were so notorious in the media. Bellator mixed martial artist War Machine and gorgeous, tattooed, head-half-shaved Christy Mack had a relationship prior to the August 8th incident during which he mercilessly beat her, leaving her with missing and damaged teeth, broken bones and a ruptured liver.

In the wake of the assault, responses to the event varied from questions about War Machine's mental state and sanity, all the way to victim shaming of Christy Mack, and a few people on Twitter who criticized battered and bruised lass for being outside "so soon" after a brutal beating. She responded by saying she was out for some groceries and not a night on the town.

Koppenhaver/War Machine was arrested a week after the event. Maybe this goes without saying, but if you date a man who legally changes his name to "War Machine" you might have a bad time. War Machine himself had a brief adult film career that started in 2009 and consisted of twelve flicks.
