Rock stars have them. Politicians do too. Then it surely is no big surprise that top pro athletes also have their share of gorgeous, sexy mistresses who are discrete... until the media gets wind and the indiscretions start flying and going viral.
CNN reported that 80 to 90 percent of pro athletes cheat and many cheat on their mistresses with additional ladies. So although the position of mistress may seem to come with a few perks, the downside is that it will be a temporary experience at best and oh yes, you are possibly ruining a family.
Some of our favorite sports figures, like Shaq and Tiger, have had many lovers outside of their marriages... or we should say alleged mistresses, as some things we see, read and hear are simply tabloid hearsay. But we've learned that when no "hush money" is involved, mistresses are happy to come out of the woodwork in later years. See what you think of our list of ten women who may or may not have been "sports mistresses".
10 Roger Clemens and Mindy McCready
9 David Beckham and Rebecca Loos
8 Bobby Petrino and Jessica Dorrell
This alleged affair cost the former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino his job. The Huffington Post ran a story that detailed the kisses, gifts and handwritten notes from Petrino to Jessica Dorrell, who was half his age. Athletic director, Jeff Long, began investigating Petrino's actions and was able to have personal notes released based on the Associated Press's Freedom of Information Act. In the end, Petrino was let go due to his unprofessional actions of hiring and providing financial gifts to Dorrell, among other shady activities, and hiding it even when under the gun.
7 Shaq and Latosha Lee
6 Tiger Woods and Rachel Uchitel
Now we know that Tiger Woods had many mistresses while married to the mother of his kids Elin Nordegren, but when the story went public, Rachel Uchitel was the first woman to be named 'Woods' mistress'. She was hounded by the media for a while before opening up to the Daily Mail. She admitted during the interview that she was very unstable when she met Woods, even addicted to Ambien- to help her cope with the loss of her then fiancé, who was working in one of the World Trade Centers on 9/11. She explains she was not well, and that even though she doesn't agree with her behavior that people should know her side of the story. Rachel's friends even added, saying; "she believed her eight-month affair with Woods was a serious relationship with a ‘soul mate’, and has never breathed a word in public about him."
5 Dwayne Wade and Lauren London
4 Barry Bonds and Kimberly Bell
3 John Terry and Vanessa Perroncel
2 Kobe Bryant and Vanessa Curry
1 Jeff Gordon and Deanna Merryman
Deanna Merryman was the person allegedly responsible for the break up of driver Jeff Gordon's marriage. Merryman's tell-all was published in Playboy along with her nude pictorial. She claims that she and NASCAR star Jeff Gordon had an 11-month affair about a year after she met him. "He got married when he was 23 and has been on the race track since he was a kid. He used to tell me all the time that he never had a chance to have fun." However, Merryman evidently was not enough fun to keep him coming back for more, as she later found that Gordon was meeting up with another model.
