Everton balls: Tim Howard in kiss ‘n’ abort tabloid stinger
In “Prem ace made me abort our baby”, the Sun looks at Everton goalkeepers Tim Howard, a divorced father of two and committed Christian, Howard has, reportedly, “got a girlfriend pregnant then urged her to have an abortion”
The story you can read in full on the Sun’s website. But here are some highlights.
The revelations shatter 36-year-old Howard’s image as a family man.
He’s divorced. He has been single since 2010. He met the girlfriend in 2014.
The 32-year-old woman says:
“He’s a hypocrite and I feel he manipulated me. I feel totally betrayed, a complete fool. I believe he stayed with me to make sure I had an abortion. In the end I made the decision on my own to have the abortion.”
Is she a hypocrite, then?
“I’m so sad I sacrificed a child I wanted to keep. It makes me so mad that he was a faithful Christian and he could behave like this.”
We later learn that she’s a… Catholic. Does that make you mad?
Her next line might be the non-sequitur of the year. She says:
“One of the first things he asked was if I had a phone charger. He didn’t seem like a typical footballer.”
Footballers always carry their own phone chargers, typically.
Tim Howard has Tourette’s. No sniggering now:
When she eventually told him [she was pregnant] over the phone, she was stunned by his response. She said: “His reaction was, ‘F**k that’.”
She then really nails him.
He said he would let me decide but it was clear to me what he wanted. Although we were in the early stages, I believed he was a good Christian and would support me.”
He left it up to her. The cad. The swine.
In messages, she told of her reservations about an abortion saying: “You are blessed with two children. I am killing ours. Eughhhh!!!”
He then told her:
“My logic/reason is . . . it’s clearly not a situation to bring a child into. In terms of us only knowing each other a short period. I’m leaving England in 2 years you know.”
The sensible pig. He then added:
“It happened bc WE were f**n stupid. It’s simple.”
He tells the Press:
“This is a private matter and it is unfortunate that, for whatever reason, the person concerned has chosen to take her version of events public. I have no interest in discussing it further.”
It is private. After all, we don’t get to know her name.
