London, Jan 28 : English footballer Ashley Cole went to extreme lengths, including offering money, to prevent the hairdresser with whom he allegedly cheated on his wife Cheryl Cole, from disclosing her pregnancy.
Sources say that the Chelsea and England ace was scared to hell after learning that blonde hairdresser Aimee Walton might be pregnant with his child.
Cole, 27, told Cheryl that he couldn't remember having sex with Aimee, but fresh evidence has destroyed those claims, revealing the lengths Cole was prepared to go to in order to conceal his dirty secret.
Aimee has broken her silence and revealed that Cole's representative offered her cash to have an abortion, and the player himself called her from his mobile to say sorry.
After discovering the news, Cole said: "F****** hell! I'm shaking. I'm sorry. S**t!"
Cole's representative is believed to have told Aimee: "The best thing for Ashley is to terminate the baby," as well as offering her private medical care and "financial support to make the termination easy".
The rep also told Aimee that Cole's camp would do "whatever it takes" to keep her happy, as long as she doesn't open her mouth.
However, Aimee declined the offer. She said that she was disgusted with Cheryl's remarks that branded her a gold-digger.
"There are things he did to me that you simply would not forget. At one point his mates burst into the room and had a conversation with him while we were having sex," The Sun quoted Aimee, as saying.
"If Ashley can't remember our encounter, maybe Cheryl can ask them about it. I regret what happened, but what Cheryl has said is infuriating and, frankly, ridiculous.
"I was offered cash on a plate by Ashley Cole. A man representing Ashley Cole met me and tried to throw money at the problem. He was there for Ashley, he may as well have been Ashley.
"I could have taken the money and ran. I chose instead to expose what he is like. I'm sorry Cheryl has been hurt, but trying to shift the blame from her husband to me is not rational.
"Ashley slept with me, then tried to cover it up. They tried to shut me up with money. They lie and cheat. Cheryl needs to bear that in mind when Ashley is telling her it never happened," she added.
