'Cheap' Sterling shells out £3, 000 for sex
EPL By: Ambrose Udeme | 06/08/2017
Manchester City and England star Raheem Sterling reportedly paid a hooker for sex on US tour and was branded a ‘cheapskate’ after he rowed over £3,000-a-night fee.The £49million England winger who according to SunSports romped with the Kim Kardashian lookalike while on pre-season with Manchester City in Los Angeles last month later sent angry WhatsApp messages about price. Sterling later rowed over her fee but paid her cash in an envelope.Raheem, who earns £180,000 a week, sent a string of angry WhatsApp messages haggling about the cost before finally getting a Man City fixer to leave £1,500 for the prostitute.
The England star later contacted the woman saying he was too drunk to remember their night together. But his behaviour is likely to infuriate his long-term partner Paige, mum of his six-month old son, and anger strict Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.She said as quoted in the Sun: “Raheem may be a millionaire but he is a rude cheapskate. He seemed to assume that he would be able to just sleep with me and not pay.“Considering how much he earns that’s pretty cheap.”The romp took place at the Ritz Carlton hotel in LA, which the club was using as the base for the tour. Sterling bedded the girl after a boozy night out at a strip club, 24 hours after City were beaten by Manchester United in Houston on Thursday July 20.Sterling and his team-mates were given time off in LA before their International Champions Cup game against Real Madrid the following Wednesday.He wasted no time in getting in contact with the 30-year-old American “model and socialite” after a pal in the UK gave him her number.WhatsApp messages between the pair show that he contacted her on July 21 and they agreed to meet. Later that night he was out with friends, believed to be City teammates, when he messaged her.He asked to meet her and said he was at night club Avenue LA, a favourite haunt of film and music stars. He added: “Going strip club now.” Sterling met up with the hooker after returning from the club at 4.30am.
She said: “Raheem seemed very arrogant and he had little personality. He is obviously used to treating women this way. He needs to change his attitude.”Under Californian state law it is an offence to engage in a “lewd act performed in exchange for money or another form of compensation”.Those caught can face fines, suspended sentences or jail. The messages between the pair suggest Sterling agreed to pay the woman after he slept with her.She said: “Raheem had texted me a hotel room number that did not exist, so I was there waiting for him to show up. I was very close to leaving. Finally he arrived and we went to his room.
“It was not particularly big and his suitcases were strewn all over the floor. You could tell he wasn’t staying for long. Raheem seemed drunk and his breath smelled of alcohol. He was upset with me for not meeting him earlier and was not very talkative. So I made the first move and we started messing around.”Afterwards the woman, who has dated a string of US sports stars, clashed with Sterling over cash. She demanded $4,000 (£3,000) but he insisted he was only going to pay $2,000 (£1,500).She said they argued before falling asleep in his suite. The next morning Sterling headed off to an LA pool party without paying her.She said: “Raheem complained he needed to go to a cash machine. But he said he also needed to buy some clothes for the pool party and he’d be going straight there. He said he would leave the money in an envelope behind reception at the hotel.”But he failed to do so and the pair rowed again by text. An apologetic Sterling messaged her later and said: “I was so drunk yesterday. That’s why I forgot.”In one message sent after their romp, she said: “I need you to put the money in the front today. And please put the total of the 4k we spoke about.”Sterling responded saying: “I told u 2k.”She hit back: “I didn’t agree on 2k we need to meet in the middle plus u make me wait.”Sterling refused to cave in but did promise that the $2,000 would be left behind reception.Raheem then texted the girl to discuss their tryst, saying: “I was drunk af (as f***).”In another message, he added: “I’m about to go bck to England. N gnna see my girl. When I’m drunk I’m bit loco.”City’s Spanish manager Guardiola looked to improve discipline when he took over last year and the English FA sets out a code of conduct for its top stars, even when not on international duty.It says: “Players representing England are ambassadors for their country and are role models for younger players.“The highest standards of conduct and behaviour are therefore expected at all times, including when players are not on international duty.”Photos credit: @thesun.co.uk
