It was revealed earlier this month that Newcastle United footballer Danny Simpson was dating singer and X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos. Danny has now opened up about the relationship and claims that he will be throwing himself into his game to avoid the public criticism.
Simpson explained, “Sometimes when all of that is going on around you, it is the best time to play football. You go on the pitch and you can forget about everything.” He also revealed how he has received plenty of support from his teammates and his manager.
Danny added, “The manager has been really supportive. And everybody here has. Everybody around me knows the truth. I have a lot of friends in football and good people around me. They are class. They always stick up for you. They are top fans.
Danny Simpson has been accused by his ex girlfriend Stephanie Ward of cheating, as she claims that he was still with her while hooking up with Tulisa. However, both Danny and Tulisa have denied these accusations and insist that they have done nothing wrong.
