They might not be up on the big screen in Hollywood, but many talented athletes still grace the screens of our TV and have become household names, which basically makes them celebrities, right? With this superstar status, it doesn’t just come with the perks the money will make, but the types of crowds and company it attracts, in particular, the waves of women. These girls lets just say like to have a good time and push the pace, and best case scenario find themselves with a big ol’ diamond ring on their finger. Once the chase is over, however, both parties might eventually grow apart, or stray, sometimes ending up in the arms of the unspeakable, a teammates significant other.
The increasingly common accounts of athlete indiscretion is almost inevitable now a days, but the only thing that remains the same is one of those unwritten rules in sports to never cross the line and find yourself with another athlete, or especially a teammate's, wife. Despite this, sometimes the uniting front of a jersey the squad shares does not necessarily reflect what goes on behind those closed locker room doors. This sad occurrence not only destroys marriages, but also majorly affects the bond of a team and everyone around them.
Here are some scandalous accusations of the Top 15 Athletes Who Allegedly Cheated With Another Athlete’s Wife (not necessarily a teammate).
15 15. Mike Comrie (Tommy Salo)
14 14. Pavel Bure (former teammate Sergei Federov)
Sergei Fedorov and Pavel Bure were two of the biggest Russian hockey stars of the 90s. They also happened to be good friends, due to their roots back in Russia, where they were both part of the Soviet team before coming to the NHL. When they both came to the United States, Federov scored a relationship with the blonde tennis player Anna Kournikova. When the two were going out, Kournikova started to become friendly with friend and Russian national teammate Bure as well, leading to rumors of the two allegedly becoming engaged in 2000, which was obviously denied, as she was 18 years old at the time.
13 13. DeMarco Murray (former teammate Brennan Clay)
12 12. John Terry (teammate Wayne Bridges)
John Terry is an English soccer player who acted as England’s captain and played alongside teammate Wayne Bridges. Bridges and his girl French model Vanessa Perroncel shared a son together who was born November 21st, 2006. The very next day he signed a contract to go play in Chelsea…funny right? Well turns out Terry had an affair with Bridges wife, and got her pregnant! Whoops! She had an abortion within months of the affair starting but that didn’t stop the secret from coming to light!
11 11. Avasial Garcia (teammate Prince Fielder)
10 10. Sean Avery & Mike Komisarek (Dion Phaneuf)
9 9. Shannon Brown (teammate Pau Gasol)
8 8. Golden Tate (teammate Russell Wilson)
7 7. John Harkes (teammate Eric Wynalda)
John Harkes is now a retired American soccer player, but at one time was the sought after captain to the U.S. team. It was brought to light that he was apparently having an affair with teammate Eric Wynalda’s wife, Amy. The rumor caused tension in the locker room, and the matter was brought to the attention of then head coach Steve Sampson, keeping it all hush hush, never making the details public.
6 6. Tony Parker (teammate Brent Barry)
5 5. Russell Wilson (Joseph Fauria)
Joseph Fauria, the Detroit Lions tight end at the time (now free agent), was dating brunette stunner Erika Ann Hammond when a rumor circulated that Hammond was also involved with QB Russell Wilson. Fauria, in a rage, called out both of them on Twitter, but later deleted the tweet that said:
“Hey @DangeRussWilson enjoy her @ErikaAnnHammond. She had me thinking she was a loyal GF. I feel you @BrennanClay24”.
4 4. Leandro Barbosa (teammate Steve Nash)
3 3. Shaquille O'Neal (Gilbert Arenas)
2 2. Paul Terry (Dale Roberts)
1 1. Fritz Peterson and Mike Kekich
One of the most bizarre affair results to date, and the original wife swap story occurred between Yankees pitchers Fritz Peterson and Mike Kekich. The pair announced they would be quite literally switching wives at spring training back in March of 1973. The families had been friends since 1969, but the two men had pursued each other’s counter parts while still married. Not only that, they swapped entire families, kids included. According to Kekich, he didn’t favor the term 'wife-swapping'. "We didn’t swap wives, we swapped lives”. There you have it.
