Ashley Cole, star footballer for Chelsea, is currently embroiled in an embarrassing scandal of his own after The Sun's report about a sexy exchange with a topless model.
Apparently, Sonia Wild, a model known for her impressive body of work, received shots of a nude Cole to her cell phone. The good sport that she is, she reciprocated with steamy pics of her own.
Cole says he wasn't the man who sent the risque material. According to him, he had given the sending phone away to a friend -- and evidently not a friend who can keep secrets.
A source close to Cole explains, ""He took the images on an unregistered pay-as-you-go phone then didn't manage to delete them when he gave it away to a mate. To say he's horrified to discover the pictures were sent to a model is an understatement."
The 29-year-old defender is currently nursing a broken ankle that could keep him out of the World Cup. Before you feel too sorry for him, let me point out he is married to Cheryl Cole.
