Wayne Bridge and John Terry
Terry and Bridge played together for Chelsea and England before the latter went to Manchester City. However, their relationship broke down after a cheating scandal emerged. Terry had a secret relationship with Bridge’s former partner, Vanessa Perroncel.
The UK media loved this story and focused on the soccer stars during their next clash. Bridge refused to shake hands with Terry before the game’s kick-off. It was a wild sequence of events but most people agreed that Bridge had the moral high ground. Perroncel became an infamous figure too (via The Guardian).
