A SLEAZY group of Premier League stars have set up secret groups on their mobiles to pass round naked and topless photos of women they have bedded.

Between ten and 15 aces — many with wives or girlfriends — are in the BlackBerry Messenger groups. Those involved view snaps of unwitting women, then contact any they like the look of.

At least four top soccer stars involved in the secret sex ring have represented England, Patty(TINH) can reveal.

Those in the two sleazy groups — which the players have dubbed Brotherhood and Hoodratz — also delight in passing on phone numbers and addresses for the unwitting women, who are often soccer “groupies.”

Last night a source said: “It’s a very select group of trusted players who are all interested in the same thing.

“Obviously it would be a disaster if any of them got caught because many of them have wives or girlfriends.”

Patty(TINH) can also disclose that one member of the group bought a secret handset to prevent his partner from unearthing his sordid antics.
Meanwhile a big-name boxer was also allowed entry to the clandestine “club”.

Between ten and 15 top-flight stars are involved in the BBM groups. Both Brotherhood and Hoodratz have been in operation for at least six months.

The source added: “Members of the group upload pictures of their conquests and include phone numbers and details of where they live.

“The idea is that the other players can scroll through the pictures, upload comments and contact the girls if they like the look of them.

“The groups have been going since last year and there are more than 40 photos — women of all ages." The source went on:

“A lot of the pictures are snaps the girls have taken of themselves and sent to the players. They are usually topless and some are naked.

"The players then put comments like, ‘Wow!’ or ‘She’s hot’.

"But the girls have no idea that their photos are being passed around all these other footballers to leer at.

"The girls are the type who target footballers in nightclubs and bars. It sounds awful but they’re basically easy sex. They’re from Birmingham, London, Manchester — all over England.

"If a player from the North is going to be in London, he can pick one of the girls to make contact with so he has some company.

"The only proviso is that the player must not discuss the group with the girl — or anyone — and must not reveal how he got her number.

"They just make up some excuse that a friend of a friend gave them the girl’s details and that usually does the trick. Photos are added at all times of the day and night and the lads are in competition to upload the fittest girl.

"There’s a lot of lurid banter between them — it’s like a weird dating service because the girls do not realise that a photo meant for one person is now being ogled by all these other players. One thing is for sure though, these players will be terrified of any of this coming out.”

Speaking about the footballer who bought the secret handset to hide his dealings with the group, the source said: “He was getting well addicted to looking at these saucy photos and was terrified the missus would find out.

“The groups are strictly invite-only. They have to be as many are top Premier League stars and discretion is key.

“There are a few administrators of the groups, who are the only ones that can invite others to join. The lads are on it non-stop, I don’t know how they get away with constantly being on their phones all through the night. Some that were members have ended up leaving the groups because the notifications were too regular.

“Others have left because they found the way the girls were talked about derogatory. It might be banter, but the girls might not see it that way if they knew.”

PREMIER League star Titus Bramble is to go on trial today, accused of sexually assaulting two women.

The Sunderland defender, 30, is charged in connection with alleged incidents during a night out in Yarm, Teesside, on September 28 last year.

Bramble, from Wynyard, near Middlesbrough, faces four charges — all of which he denies.

In the first he is accused of indecently touching one alleged victim.

In the second count, he is alleged to have touched another woman’s leg and moved his hand towards her crotch without consent.

In the last two counts, he is accused of twice placing her hand on his crotch.

Bramble started his career at Ipswich Town and also played for Newcastle and Wigan Athletic before signing for Sunderland.

He is due to go on trial at Teesside Crown Court.

PREMIER League star Titus Bramble groped a woman in a nightclub before repeatedly sexually assaulting another in the back of a taxi, a court heard today.

The Sunderland defender, 30, is claimed to have repeatedly grabbed the second woman’s hand and put it on his crotch.

The driver of the cab was so concerned he drove the two straight to a police station, jurors were told.

In the other claim, a woman says someone pinched her bottom when she was at a bar in Yarm, Teeside, at around 1am. When she turned around, she saw a man alleged to be Bramble smirking at her.

Shaun Dodds, prosecuting at Teesside Crown Court, said today: “It is significant that we have here key witnesses who don’t know each other and are both making separate and independent allegations against this defendant’s sexual conduct in the early hours of September 28.”

Bramble, from Wynyard, near Middlesbrough, faces four charges, all of which he denies.

In the first complaint, Mr Dodds told the court a male friend told woman No1 that the man who pinched her bottom played for Sunderland.

Mr Dodds said: “She didn’t know who he was. She said, ‘I don’t care what he does, he is not grabbing my a*** like that.’”

He also told the jury she went up to him and told him “Don’t you touch me like that again” before he was ushered away by friends.

When news of the second complainant appeared on the TV news the next day, the first woman told her father and police were called, the court heard.

She later picked Bramble out in an identity parade. Bramble denies it was him who groped the woman.

Around 30 minutes later, a woman Bramble knew was helping a friend who felt unwell.

He led her into an alleyway and kissed her but after a moment she stopped as she knew he had a girlfriend, Mr Dodds said.

He asked her to go to a Middlesbrough nightclub but she declined, though she agreed to share a taxi with him so she could be dropped off at home, the jury heard.

Mr Dodds said: “Once in the taxi, the defendant told the driver to take them to Wynyard where he lives.”

An argument followed between the driver and Bramble about payment until the player handed over £15 and the woman £5.

Prosecutors say she believed she was still being dropped off at her home.

During the journey Bramble told the woman his relationship was over, the court heard, before leaning across and putting his hand on her leg and moving it up.

Mr Dodds said: “The prosecution say she tells him to stop and moves his hand away.”

She again said “no” when Bramble tried to kiss her, the jury heard. He then took her hand and placed it on his crotch, over his jeans.

Mr Dodds said: “She started to feel scared at this stage.”

She told the driver to head towards her home, and not in the Wynyard direction, the jury heard, but Bramble told the driver to go his home.

He then grabbed her hand and again placed it over the crotch of his jeans.

Mr Dodds said she pulled her hand away, saying “This is not right. Stop.”

The driver became aware something was wrong when the woman got hold of his arm.

He later described her as looking very sad and scared.

He was so concerned he drove to Stockton police station on the pretext there was a problem with the fare, the jury was told.

Mr Dodds said: “He was driving there because of his concerns about what he could see happening in the back of the taxi.”

The driver went into the police station, followed by Bramble and the woman, and asked to speak to an officer away from the footballer.

Meanwhile, the complainant locked herself in a toilet and refused to come out until she was sure Bramble was not there.

He was subsequently arrested and did not reply when the allegations were put to him, Mr Dodds said.

The defence will argue that he did not touch the first complainant and that any sexual activity in the taxi was consensual, Mr Dodds said.

The trial continues.

Sunderland defender Titus Bramble has been cleared of sexually assaulting two women.

Bramble was accused of groping one woman in a nightclub before assaulting another in a taxi on September 28.

The Ipswich-born player had denied the charges brought against him and, following a four-day trial, the jury found him not guilty at Teeside Crown Court.

Bramble was initially arrested after the taxi driver become concerned at the actions of the 30-year-old and subsequently drove him to the police station.

The former Newcastle and Wigan defender admitted that he was under the influence of alcohol, but claimed that he had shared a consensual kiss with the women in the taxi before her mood changed, and denied groping a separate woman in a nightclub that same evening.

Sunderland have refused to comment on the court ruling.

FOOTBALL ace Titus Bramble was cleared today of sexually assaulting two women.

The Sunderland defender was found not guilty by a jury at Teesside Crown Court following a four-day trial.

Bramble, 30, was accused of groping a woman in a nightclub in Yarm, Teesside, before sexually assaulting another in a taxi home.

Bramble told jurors that one of the complainants was “touchy feelie and flirty” and kissed him “passionately” as they shared a taxi from the Cross Keys nightclub.

The Sunderland defender said she kissed him and put her hand on his crotch during the journey.

He said: “We were kissing. We kissed a couple of times passionately.

“She was touching me and putting my hand on her leg.”

But the complainant claimed he twice grabbed her hand and put it on his crotch and placed his hand between her legs, which made her “scared”.

The taxi driver believed something was wrong and drove the pair to a police station where Bramble was arrested, the jurors were told.

Bramble’s defence lawyer Ronnie Jaffa said the woman made the allegation to “save face” after she regretted kissing him.

The other woman, who was in the Cross Keys, said she felt someone grope her bottom and turned to see Bramble.

Bramble, of Wynyard near Middlesbrough, always denied it was him.

She reported the incident after the other woman claimed she was assaulted in a taxi by the Sunderland star, which they caught in Yarm on the same night - September 28 last year.

The footballer, who has played for Ipswich, Newcastle and Wigan Athletic, consistently denied all charges.

A jury of five men and seven women took just over an hour to reach a unanimous verdict.

Bramble, who was wearing a grey suit, showed little emotion as the foreman delivered a not guilty verdict for each charge.

He said nothing to reporters as he left court with his legal team and got into a waiting Mercedes, which sped away.

The France internationals Franck Ribéry and Karim Benzema have been discharged of solicitation of an underage prostitute, the Paris Correctional Tribunal said on Thursday.

Real Madrid's striker Benzema and Bayern Munich's forward Ribéry, who did not attend their trial, were being tried on charges of paying the prostitute-turned-fashion model Zahia Dehar when she was aged 16 and 17.

Ribéry has admitted paying her for sex but said he did not know her age. Benzema has denied having any sexual relations with Dehar. Paying for sex is not illegal in France but underage prostitution is.

Last December, the National Assembly passed a bill to fine prostitutes' clients, but it still has to pass the Senate and be signed by president Francois Hollande before it becomes law.

On-loan Newcastle forward Loic Remy will not face any further action, following his arrest over a rape claim last May.

The 27-year-old France international, who is on loan at Newcastle from QPR, was arrested last spring along with two other men, after a women said she had been attacked in Fulham.

However, at the time of the arrest Remy's lawyers said he denied the claim and the three men have now been told they will face no further action over the allegations.

Scotland Yard did not name Remy but a Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: "Officers from (sex crime unit) Sapphire investigated an allegation of rape on 6 May in the Fulham area.

"The allegation was passed on to the Metropolitan Police Service by Kent Police on 8 May after the 34-year-old female victim reported it to them the previous day.

"The victim alleged she was raped by three men.

"On the morning of Wednesday, 15 May, three men aged 26, 23 and 22, were arrested at an address in Fulham on suspicion of rape.

"They were taken into custody at a west London police station and all three men were bailed pending further inquiries.

"On February 13, and following consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, the three men were informed that no further action would be taken against them."

Convicted rapist Ched Evans has said he is “ashamed” of his actions, but expressed no remorse for his crime as he continues to protest his innocence.

The 25-year-old footballer, who was released from prison on Friday having served half of a five-year sentence for raping a woman in a hotel room, told the Sunday Mirror in an interview conducted shortly before he was freed that cheating on his girlfriend was “unforgivable”.

But of the crime he was convicted of by a jury at Caernarfon crown court two years ago, he said: “It was something that should never have happened. I cheated on my girlfriend and had sex with this girl - but it was definitely consensual.”

Katie Russell, of the charity Rape Crisis, told the paper that the player’s words were harmful and insulting to his victim, for whom she said he shown no regard.

The former Sheffield United player’s release became a talking point last week as a debate raged over whether he should be allowed to return to football.

Many Blades fans have called for Evans to be rehabilitated but almost 150,000 people have signed an online petition urging the League One club not to welcome him back.

The TV presenter Judy Finnigan sparked controversy by claiming his crime was “non-violent” and did not cause “bodily harm”, during a panel discussion on ITV’s Loose Women. Her comments caused a wave of criticism, abuse on social media and also sparked threats against her daughter.

Evans was jailed for rape in April 2012 over an incident in Rhyl, north Wales, the previous year. The footballer admitted having sex with the woman, who told the jury she had no memory of the incident. The prosecution said the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was too drunk to consent to sexual intercourse.

The Port Vale defender Clayton McDonald also admitted having sex with the victim but was found not guilty of rape. An appeal against Evans’ conviction was rejected by three judges at the court of appeal in 2012. Evans’ case is due to be reviewed by the Criminal Cases Review Commission in the coming weeks.

On Sunday Sheffield United said reports that the club had offered Evans a new contract were “false and damaging”. It said: “We have made a statement on this matter previously and the lack of credibility and substance from this latest media report does not warrant any expansion from previous comments apart from noting that we are continuing to deliberate on any long-term decision about Ched Evans.”

The TV presenter and Sheffield United patron Charlie Webster, who revealed in an interview this year that she had been sexually assaulted as a teenager, said she would quit her role with the club if they re-signed Evans. She told BBC Radio 5 Live: “You will have young people cheering him on when he scores a goal. Not under my name, under my club or community. He says he is innocent, he has shown no remorse.”

Webster was branded a hypocrite by Evans’ sister Kylie, who retweeted a message that the sports presenter posted last month saying she wanted to get a photograph of the former heavyweight boxing champion and convicted rapist Mike Tyson. Tyson was convicted of rape in 1992 after an incident the previous year and subsequently served three years of a six-year sentence. Webster, 31, later said she was “not proud of” her Tyson tweet.

Evans’ girlfriend, Natasha Massey, has led a campaign to have Evans’ conviction overturned.


Yes in the eyes of the law he has been rehabilitated and is safe to return to public life but he has a very high profile public job representing a football club and in the real world a conviction like that sticks with you forever.

Sadly football has no morals and if the club feel that his goals can get them promoted then they probably will take him back.

I don't know the ins and outs of the case but if a jury found him guilty then I guess the evidence was clearly against him. She remains anonymous (although some tw*t did let her identity on Twitter) so what does she have to gain by saying that he raped her? Not like she can sell her story is it

England and Sunderland footballer Adam Johnson has been arrested on suspicion of having sex with a 15-year-old girl.

Durham Police said a 27-year-old had been arrested earlier on suspicion of sexual activity with a girl under 16, and remained in police custody.

Sunderland AFC said he had been suspended pending the outcome of the police investigation.

News of the arrest of a Premier League footballer was revealed earlier in The Sun newspaper.

The Sunderland-born winger has also played for Middlesbrough and Manchester City, and represented his country 12 times.

He was due to travel with the team to east Yorkshire for Tuesday night's fixture at Hull.

Sunderland said it would make no further comment on the arrest.


Serious stuff if he's found guilty on this one then that's probably it for him like it was for Ched Evans.

Obviously don't want to hammer him without knowing the full story as you don't know if he knew that she was 15 if she's lied to him about her age then is that really his fault?

Sunderland have at least done the right thing and suspended him until the police conclude their investigation.

Sunderland winger Adam Johnson has been released on bail by Durham police after his arrest on suspicion of sexual activity with a girl under 16.

A police officer told reporters outside Peterlee station that Johnson had been bailed and was no longer there.

Earlier in the day, Durham Constabulary issued a brief statement confirming the player's arrest.

Sunderland have suspended Johnson pending the outcome of the investigation.

A club statement said: "Sunderland AFC has confirmed that Adam Johnson has been suspended from the club, pending the outcome of a police investigation. No further comment will be made at the present time."

Sunderland will therefore be without Johnson for Tuesday's Premier League trip to Hull City.

According to The Sun the England international, who became a father for the first time in early January, was arrested at his £1.85million mansion on Monday morning.

Three unmarked cars, a police van, plain clothes officers and crime scene investigators were reportedly at the player's home.

A neighbour told The Sun: "All the main activity was between 9.15am and 9.35am. Three undercover cars and a scenes of crime van arrived.

"As far as I know he lives there with his girlfriend."

Johnson, 27, who scored the winning goal in this season's Tyne-Wear derby against Newcastle at St James Park, joined Sunderland from Manchester City for £10m in August 2012.

He made his full England debut against Hungary in 2010 and has 12 caps, scoring two goals.

The schoolgirl at the centre of underage sex claims with Sunderland and England footballer Adam Johnson has been named by online trolls.

Police issued a strong warning that anyone who identifies the 15-year-old faces prosecution and that perpetrators will be dealt with "robustly".

Durham Constabulary acted after Johnson, 27, was arrested at his home yesterday on suspicion of sexual activity with an underage girl.

The warning comes after a young woman who was raped by footballer Ched Evans was widely named online a number of times, forcing her to change her identity and move home.

At least ten people were convicted for identifying the victim.

It has also emerged that Adam Johnson was arrested after the schoolgirl's father learned of the alleged offence and went to police.

The midfielder was interviewed at a police station for several hours yesterday before he was released on bail.

Another girl was forced to deny she was the alleged victim after being wrongly linked to Johnson online.

In a statement, Durham Constabulary said: "Anyone who identifies someone who may or may not be a victim of a sexual offence is committing a criminal act.

"Victims of sexual assault are guaranteed the legal right to lifetime anonymity and publishing any details, including on social media, which may lead to their identification, is contrary to the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Act 1992.

"Durham Constabulary wishes to remind social media users, and anyone else, who breaks the law that they will be dealt with robustly."

England international Johnson could miss the rest of the season as a result of his arrest - with the club facing a relegation fight.

Today, his family rallied behind him.

Seven weeks after their daughter was born, partner Stacey Flounders said she was sticking by the England player after he was arrested on suspicion of sexual activity with a girl of 15.

Speaking from Stacey's family home, her mum said: "Stacey and Adam are still very close and absolutely still together.

"He is 100 per cent innocent and we will stand by him. He hasn't been found guilty of anything.

"He is a great lad and has not done anything wrong. This is just a horrible situation."

Sunderland’s £10million winger was held following a morning raid on the £1.5million mansion that he shares with Stacey.

Three unmarked police cars and a van drove through the electric gates of their home near Hartlepool, Co Durham at around 9.15am when plain-clothed officers entered.

It is understood the player was then taken to a nearby police station in the Durham force area to be questioned.

Officers discovered what is understood to be a legally-owned starting pistol when they searched the player's home.

Last night, Johnson was suspended by the Black Cats pending the outcome of the police investigation - which could rule the £60,000-a-week star out for the rest of the season.

Crime scene investigators also arrived at the player’s house.

A Durham Police spokesman said: “A 27-year-old man was arrested early today on suspicion of sexual activity with a girl under the age of 16.

“He remains in police custody and is helping officers with their inquiries.”

Johnson was later released on police bail.

A neighbour said: “All the main activity was between 9.15am and 9.35am.

“Three undercover cars and a scenes of crime van arrived.

“You could tell they were police officers, they were all dressed in black. I haven’t seen him all day. I just assumed there had been a burglary.

“As far as I know he lives there with his girlfriend.”

Johnson is a popular figure at Sunderland, with officials shocked by the arrest.

A club source said: “He is quiet until you get to know him, but not afraid to speak his mind.

“It was thought everyone was fit and ready for the coming games, which are crucial for the club.

“It will be a big blow if he were to be ruled out for the rest of the season because of this.

“He is a match winner on his day.”

The Black Cats boss Gus Poyet conducted his usual round of media interviews this week suggesting the team had two games to pull out of the relegation zone.

Poyet substituted Johnson in the Premier League game against Burnley on January 31, and explained it was because the England international was feeling tired after becoming a dad.

Officers spent the day at Johnson’s house yesterday, and also appeared to be searching the triple garage at one point.

Johnson is a favourite at the Stadium of Light, and his arrest will stun the Black Cats’ loyal army of fans.

A Sunderland AFC spokesman said: “We can confirm that Adam Johnson has been suspended from the club, pending the outcome of the police inquiry.

“No further comment will be made at the present time.”

His parents, who live close to their son, declined to comment on his arrest last night.

Johnson, who was raised in Easington, County Durham, started playing for the Middlesbrough Youth Academy at the age of 12.

He made his senior debut at the age of 17, playing for Middlesbrough in the UEFA Cup in 2005.

Johnson later joined Leeds United, before moving back to Middlesbrough.

In 2010, he was signed by Manchester City, and was in and out of then manager Roberto Mancini’s plans before Sunderland signed him in 2012 on a four-year contract worth £10 million.

Johnson was first named in the England squad in 2010 and he made his debut in a World Cup warm-up match against Mexico that year.

The winger has since won 12 caps, but did not travel to Brazil for the World Cup last year.

In December, he described himself as the most-hated man in Newcastle after scoring a 90-minute goal which gave Sunderland victory over their bitter derby rivals.

The young Chelsea full-back Wallace was arrested in the early hours of Friday morning in Arnhem city centre and questioned by local police investigating allegations of a sexual offence.

The Brazilian, signed from Fluminense in 2013, is one of three Chelsea players on loan at Vitesse, who are fifth in the Eredivisie. The 20-year-old was reportedly detained by police at around 4am and, having been out fewer than 48 hours before a league game, has been fined the maximum possible amount by the Dutch club and dropped for Saturday’s game against Excelsior in Rotterdam.

“We still don’t know what exactly happened,” Paul Koetsier, a police spokesman, told NTL. “That must be found out during the investigation. We can’t make it more concrete than a suspicion of a sexual offence.”

The player has featured 15 times this season, scoring once, with the Dutch club having already indicated they are not interested in retaining his services next season. Vitesse confirmed the player would be omitted from their squad for the weekend fixture and they intend to speak to him to determine what took place.

“We understand that Wallace was arrested on suspicion of an offence,” said a club spokesman. “We will not speculate on the nature of the suspicion. First the facts need to be clear and we want to hear his side of the story. Then we can judge.”

Chelsea, who had loaned the Brazil Under-20 full-back to Internazionale for a period last season, declined to comment.

Sunderland winger Adam Johnson has been charged with three offences of sexual activity with a child under 16 and one of grooming.

Johnson was initially arrested on Monday March 2 and was charged after he answered his police bail on Thursday at Peterlee police station.

The charge was confirmed by Durham Police on Thursday afternoon.

The 27-year-old will appear in the magistrates court in Peterlee on May 20.

Johnson's bail was extended on March 18 which led to Sunderland reviewing the winger's suspension and allowing him to train pending the outcome of the police investigation.

He joined Sunderland from Manchester City for £10m in August 2012 and scored the winning goal in this season's Tyne-Wear derby against Newcastle at St James Park.

Born in Sunderland and began his career at Middlesbrough, the winger has played 12 times for England and was initially suspended and then reinstated by his club after being arrested at his mansion in Castle Eden, County Durham.

Sunderland, just a point above the relegation zone in the Premier League, travel to Stoke on Saturday.


I would imagine that Sunderland will suspend him again now as surely now that he's been charged they have to start acting like a proper employer when it comes to this sort of thing.

I won't slam Johnson until I hear the full situation but if he knew that girl was under 16 then there's a special place in hell or jail for people like him but if he's been mislead by the girl ie she's claimed to be older than she actually is then I do have a little bit of symapthy for him even though he should know better at 27 years old.
