Pennant denies Sun front-page ‘porn’ claims

"I am a lot of things but not a porn star," says Jermaine Pennant. Lawyers have been informed.

Former Liverpool and Arsenal winger Jermaine Pennant has described Sun claims that he is a porn star as a “joke”.

The Sun’s front page on Saturday claimed that Pennant ‘has been starring in webcam sex shows with his glamour model wife’.

Pennant’s face was not shown but it is thought that his tattoos do appear in the shows, for which viewers pay £6 a minute.

The Sun report: ‘Jermaine had been careful to keep his face out of shot during a seedy online romp but his hand — with a “Love” tattoo on his knuckles — could be seen as he joined in with Alice touching herself.

‘In another clip, the heavily-inked ex-Liverpool, Arsenal and Stoke City winger performed a sex act on her.’

Pennant has now spoken to the Daily Mirror, saying: “Calling me a porn star and putting it on the front page of their paper is just a joke.

“The problem is that some people will actually believe that I’m in the porn industry.

“I’ve not had a perfect life and my upcoming book ‘MENTAL’ will let the public read my checkered pass but I’m not and will never be a porn star, it’s laughable, I’m a married man living with my wife and step-daughter.

“In fact the major concern for me and Alice is the influence all of this has on family and friends.

“Our lawyers are dealing with the situation now, this kind of thing needs to stop, just because I’m seen as an easy target doesn’t give anyone the right to write stories like that.

“There will be lots of headlines when my book comes out in a few months time and I will happily take any stick that comes with that. I am a lot of things but not a porn star.”
