9. Tito Ortiz and Jenna Jameson

Ortiz left his first wife Kristin and went off the rails. The former UFC light heavyweight champion dated one of the most recognizable adult movie stars of the era, Jenna Jameson. Their relationship lasted for a number of years and Ortiz claimed that he loved the actress. To be fair, he was probably the crazier of the two of them, despite Jameson’s choice of career.

Their relationship provided cannon fodder for Ortiz’s UFC opponents. On one occasion, Chael Sonnen infamously trash-talked Ortiz in a brutal fashion. Ortiz claimed that Sonnen used his mouth to talk himself into big fights. Then, Sonnen made a killer reference to Jameson’s profession. In the end, Jameson had enough of the future Mayor Pro Tem of Huntington Beach.

8. Gina Lynn and the Philadelphia Flyers

An AVN Hall of Famer, Lynn was extremely good at her job and became one of the most desired adult film stars of all time. The Puerto Rican star attracted the attention of many male celebrities and athletes during her time at the top of the industry. She opened up on some of these men, including hockey players like Danny Briere. A top Stanley Cup playoff performer, Briere starred for the Philadelphia Flyers among other teams.

Philadelphia’s nickname is the ‘City of Brotherly Love,’ but Briere was looking for a different type of love. It’s unclear if he dated the adult star, but Lynn revealed that she received pictures of his private parts. Furthermore, she said that several of his teammates also tried to get into her good books. She admitted that she spent the night on one occasion with Scottie Upshall while she was married.

7. Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra

Rodman and Electra were one of the most scandalous couples of the 1990s. Rodman played for the Detroit Pistons before starring alongside Michael Jordan in Chicago. M.J. revealed how he had to go to Las Vegas to retrieve Rodman because he partied too hard with Electra. The pair had a chaotic relationship that intensified after the tragic death of Electra’s mother.

She admitted that she poured her emotion into it and that this wasn’t always positive. Occasionally dysfunctional, they married far too quickly after they dated for a short time. In the end, they divorced and the police ordered them to stay apart from each other because of the crazy drama between them. Finally, Electra moved on and married Dave Navarro. Meanwhile, Rodman lived his chaotic life.

6. Wes and Anna Welker

Former Patriots’ receiver Welker was one of Tom Brady’s most dangerous weapons for a number of seasons. However, his wife Anna is also a dangerous weapon in her own right. The former Hooters’ pageant winner is not afraid to let people know what she feels. Ray Lewis discovered this to his cost when she targeted him on social media in 2013. She targeted him after Lewis’ Baltimore Ravens defeated her husband’s team.

“Proud of my husband and the Pats,” she tweeted. “By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’ Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of game player! A true role model.” This was an extremely embarrassing moment for Wes because it reflected poorly on him too. However, Lewis forgave Anna for her ‘moment of emotion.’

5. Eddie and Jamie Alvarez

She didn’t try to storm the octagon, but she is always a fixture beside it. Alvarez’ wife Jamie is extremely loyal to him as television fans discovered to their chagrin. They have been together for a long time after growing up together in Philadelphia. They dated and then married after a number of years. Meanwhile, she is her husband’s biggest supporter although many people think she’s crazy.

Jamie is present at most of her husband’s fights and is extremely loud as she roars his name with her loud, shrill Philly accent that tortures many listeners. She very clearly loves the former UFC champion. But some people wish that she would love him a little more quietly because the decibel levels are extremely dangerous for sensitive ears.

4. Mike Perry and Latory Gonzalez

One of the wackiest relationships in recent sports history saw Perry and Gonzalez go from zero to 100 in the space of a few weeks. Perry is notorious for his wild personality and bizarre antics. After breaking up with his ex-wife, he dated the much younger Gonzalez. Meanwhile, she became his cornerman for one UFC fight against Mickey Gall. Perry defeated his opponent as Gonzalez stole the headlines.

Gonzalez split from her boyfriend in 2021 after giving birth to their first child. To be fair, Perry’s public persona became increasingly unstable as punched an old man unconscious in a Texas restaurant. He also bought her a new car after just a few weeks of their relationship. This one was chaos from beginning to end. Furthermore, there may yet be legs in this relationship.

3. Jamie and Rebekah Vardy

One of England’s most prolific strikers, Vardy has had an impressive Premier League career. His wife Rebekah is one of soccer’s most notorious WAGs. Rebekah’s reputation suffered a massive blow after an incident involving fellow WAG, Coleen Rooney. After discovering that somebody was leaking information from her private Instagram stories, Rooney changed the settings on her close friends so that only Rebekah was there.

As a result, she disclosed that Vardy was responsible for sharing all of the gossip and secrets to the media. Meanwhile, Vardy instigated legal action against Rooney for defamation and slandering her name. However, the damage was done and it seized the imagination of the UK public. Perhaps it’s unfair to label Vardy as crazy, but the allegations are hilarious and damning.

2. Josh Reynolds

Reynolds was one of the biggest stars in Australia’s National Rugby League. While the majority of people outside of the southern nation don’t care about this, he also had one of the most dysfunctional relationships ever. He dated Andrea Del Busso who is one of the most psychopathic women on this list. In short, she allegedly used nine different aliases and faked three miscarriages to con her boyfriends.

Del Busso wasn’t even her real name. She also pretended to have cancer and conned money out of one of her boyfriends to pay for treatment. To sum up, she had a vile lack of morals and exploited the good nature of the men she ensnared. Reynolds explained his emotional turmoil after believing that she was pregnant and suffering the imagined blow of losing his future child. To discover that this was untrue was an awful blow.

1. Tiger Woods and Joslyn James

Nike ambassador and golf icon Woods had a squeaky-clean image before his cheating scandal broke. Then, the news emerged that he was involved in extra-marital affairs with dozens of women. Woods was married to Elin Nordegren, a glamorous Swedish supermodel. But he also dated the likes of James, a prolific adult film star, while he was married. In short, Woods lived a double life.

James claimed that she had a three-year relationship with the golf legend when she was effectively his mistress. In 2010, she released a stream of sexts that Woods sent her at various points. In the final one, he accused her of ruining his life. Of course, it takes two to tango and he was responsible for his own decisions. However, she had no problem revealing the depths of his behavior.
