It has been a story that has been going on for almost a year but the name of the footballer involved in an affair with model Imogen Thomas was never allowed to be mentioned in court. However, Ryan Giggs has dropped his anonymity injunction in order to seek damages from The Sun for generating a large scale media storm.
His lawyer, Hugh Tomlinson explained, "The claimant's name is in the public domain contrary to court orders. The claimant has consented to the removal of the anonymity order completely. He has suffered damage and distress by the chain of events that has been set off by the publication of the article in The Sun. We say the printing of information on the front page of a national newspaper can give rise to an action for misuse of private information."
While everybody has known for quite some time now that Ryan Giggs had an affair with Imogen Thomas, he has tried to hide behind an anonymity injunction. However, now that the injunction has been lifted, the name of Ryan Giggs can now be used freely in court. Ryan Giggs also had an affair with his brother’s wife Natasha Giggs, who then went on to appear in Celebrity Big Brother.
