X Factor star Alexandra Burke faces heartbreak following revelations that her boyfriend, England footballer Jermain Defoe, enjoyed a hotel fling with Geordie model Laura Brown, 23.
Miss Brown claims to have had sex with the Spurs striker in Newcastle, having met him in person only twice previously.
The model now reportedly says that she regrets the incident and feels sorry for singer Alexandra.
Will come as a blow: Jermain Defoe, pictured earlier this week with girlfriend Alexandra Burke, is said to have enjoyed a fling with a model named Laura Brown
According to The Sun, Laura said that she
had become friendly with Defoe, 29, via Facebook, admitted: 'I’m not
going to lie — we did have sex.'
She reportedly added: 'I never planned on sleeping with him, it just happened.'
'You can see girls in
Newcastle clubs week after week with different footballers and I think,
‘You are so stupid’. Now I’m the stupid one.'
A friend has apparently said that Laura revealed she and Defoe chatted for a long time before the footballer said he needed to rest, and invited her to stay the night.
Went behind her back: Jermain was apparently in contact with Miss Brown on Facebook for some months before eventually meeting up three times
After about three quarters of an hour, Laura's friend claims she said she gave in and slept with Jermain.
Laura, who works as a nursing assistant but models at promotional events, has said that she and Defoe struck up a friendship on Facebook, before eventually meeting in Newcastle.
A friend claims that Laura said the pair spent several hours in his hotel room kissing and cuddling the evening prior to Spurs’ Premier League game against the Magpies.
They apparently did not sleep together on that occasion, and Laura says she left to go home at about 1:30am.
No response: Alexandra has remained quiet about the reports, and posted a snap of herself enjoying a cocktail on Twitter this evening
After Defoe scored during the match, he reportedly texted Laura to say that she was his 'lucky charm'.
Defoe also invited Laura to spend a few hours with him in his Hertfordshire home before arranging a car to take her to a London party.
Laura asserts that she was unaware that Defoe and Alexandra Burke were a serious couple, and apparently Jermain gave her the impression that he and the singer were only in the early stages of their relationship.
But Laura was apparently horrified when she saw pictures of Alexandra and Jermain looking loved-up earlier this week.
Potted history: Chantelle Houghton, who dated Defoe between 2008 and 2009, has said he claims he cheated on her because she was 'too nice'
Alexandra also wore a Defoe shirt while taking part in a volleyball game in the Caribbean a few weeks ago.
The singer has given no hint of a response to the revelations on her Twitter page, and her last tweet read 'Wine who #ChangingItUp #StrawberryCaipirinha', and features a smiley picture of herself sipping a tall cocktail.
Defoe has a potted relationship history with glamour models and reality TV stars, including a broken engagement to retail manager Charlotte Mears in 2007.
He left Mears heartbroken when he dumped her for her friend Danielle Lloyd.
romance with Defoe fizzled out after just two months and she went on to
date his team-mate Jamie O'Hara – her now-fiance, who currently plays
for the Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Player: Jermain broke off his engagement to retail manager Charlotte Mears in 2007 for Danielle Lloyd. He dated model Imogen Thomas in 2009
Defoe then dated Celebrity Big Brother winner Chantelle Houghton for five months in 2009, and later that same year dated Welsh model Imogen Thomas for six months.
Chantelle revealed in a 2010 interview: 'He's
a nasty person – cheats on everyone. He told me it was because I was too nice.'
'I thought, what should I do, turn into a really horrible person There are
some right weird people out there.'
When contacted by the Mail Online, Jermain's representation said: 'We do not wish to comment on these claims in today's Sun newspaper.'
