London, Jan 30 (ANI): Lifting of a High Court gagging order has exposed England captain John Terry as a love cheat who had an affair with a team-mate's girlfriend.
The married England captain, who has three-year-old twins with wife Toni, had a secret affair with Wayne Bridge's then partner Vanessa Perroncel. The media was previously prevented from reporting details of the affair after Terry's lawyers were granted a "super injunction" at the High Court in London last Friday, claiming exposing his infidelity would breach his right to a private and family life.
But a judge dramatically lifted the order allowing the media to report the story, The Sun reports.
Terry, 29, married Toni at plush Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire in June 2007. Bridge and Vanessa were said to have attended the ceremony.
Earlier this month The Sun reported that 170,000 pound-a-week footballer Terry had put his Surrey mansion up for sale because he wanted to move to the country and change his lifestyle. Wayne and French underwear model and actress Vanessa had their first child Jaydon in November 2006. They are reported to have split at Christmas.
The left back signed for Chelsea in July 2003, but he lost his place in the team to Ashley Cole and moved to Manchester City for 10 million pounds in January last year.
Bridge is expected to be named in England's World Cup squad. (ANI)
