Adam Johnson’s wild parties with model days before his child sex case



Disgraced Premier League ­footballer Adam Johnson parties with a Danish model during a stag do in Dubai – just days before his first crown court ­appearance for child sex charges.

Johnson, 28, was spotted with Julie Hall on a yacht and at a nightclub as his ­girlfriend Stacey Flounders – now his ex – attended the hen night 5,000 miles away.

The shamed Sunderland FC winger had joined then Black Cats striker Steven Fletcher for a ­bachelor party at a five-star resort.

Details of the trip in May last year were ­highlighted during ­Johnson’s trial and ­prosecutors told how he was pictured alongside fellow ­footballers, with his thumbs up and holding a bottle of beer.

But photos of his antics with the model – just five months after Stacey had given birth to his baby daughter – have only just emerged. Johnson took Julie, 27, for a romantic trip on a yacht and was pictured partying with her.

The pair said their farewells on June 1 as the footballer headed to the airport for his flight home.

Two days later, he appeared before Durham crown court for the first time.

Unlike his previous court appearance, loyal Stacey was not by his side.

She had become increasingly suspicious of his flings with other women and later told Johnson’s trial at Bradford crown court that she suspected him of being unfaithful from the summer of 2014.

It was about that time that Johnson became “sexually attracted” to his schoolgirl victim, then aged 14, when she came to see him for autographs, he admitted in court.

Johnson went on to sexually abuse the teen who idolised him – a crime for which he was eventually convicted.

But Johnson did not let his impending court case get in the way of a good time in Dubai.

He spent several days with Fletcher and a group of around 15 to 20 lads – including other footballers – while also partying with Julie, believed to be a model and club ambassador.

The stag group stayed at the Address resort and enjoyed luxury suites, an enormous 10,000sq ft outdoor swimming pool and a restaurant with views of the tallest tower in the world, the 2,772ft Burj Khalifa.

One photo of Johnson on the yacht with Julie bears a striking resemblance to a previous Facebook snap taken in Dubai with Stacey.

While Johnson was on the stag party, Stacey enjoyed the hen do for Fletcher’s girlfriend Rachel Monaghan, 23.

The ladies posed for a glamorous line-up of WAGs by the pool of their hotel in Marbella.

Rachel and Scottish international Fletcher, 28, got married in Portugal in July, with both Johnson and Stacey among the guests.

The trial heard Johnson had intended to call Fletcher and other team-mates as witnesses for the defence.

But he claimed they had “taken a step back” after he pleaded guilty to grooming and sexual activity with the schoolgirl.

He was found guilty of another more serious charge of sexual activity with her in his luxury Range Rover on January 30 last year.

During his trial, Johnson admitted he had “not been a good person” to ex-partner Stacey, 26, due to his conduct with other women.

He also told of rows with her about texting other girls.

Giving her own evidence, Stacey said he had confessed to relationships with a series of women when she confronted him over his arrest in March last year.

Stacey told the court that she was leaving him but they intended to “remain friends”.

After being convicted this week, Johnson was warned he faced a jail sentence of four to 10 years when he returns to court in three weeks’ time. He was bailed and told to “say goodbye” to his baby daughter.
