London, July 08 (ANI): French lingerie model Vanessa Perroncel, whose rumoured affair with soccer star John Terry cost him the England captaincy, has spoken out in her defence.
Vanessa has denied claims that she slept with Terry behind the back of her ex Wayne Bridge.
"He was my friend. I'd known him for eight years. I split up from Wayne and he was there for me," the Sun quoted her as saying.
Addressing the rumours, she said: "I said it wasn't true, but no one wanted to know. I was supposed to have had sex with him five times a week. It's just horrid."
Perroncel insisted that Terry did not pay her any money to keep her mouth shut.
"I never got a penny from him," she told FHM magazine.
"But they just want to believe that I'm a gold digger. Some dumb a***s are stupid enough to believe all these lies," Vanessa added. (ANI)
