A lapdancer wheels the rubbish out at the home of soccer star Jermain Defoe – after binning her husband for him.
And 24-year-old Rachel Calvert’s spectacular finish was as ruthless as her new love is in front of goal.
Because she dumped devastated Tony on Valentine’s Day – in a car park at Asda.
And just to rub it in, Tony is a Newcastle United fan – while his substitute Defoe, 33, plays for Premier League arch rivals Sunderland.
Rachel Calvert, 24, walked out on her husband of two years to move in with the striker two weeks ago.
She and dockworker Tony, 26, have a three-year-old daughter.
A pal said: “They had broken up in the middle of January and Tony moved back to his mum’s while she stayed in their house.
“He was keen to patch things up so they arranged to meet up on neutral territory in the Asda car park on Valentine’s Day to talk things through. He even bought her a rose.
“When they were in the car together she told him she was seeing someone. At first she didn’t seem to want to tell him who it was.
“She was talking about wanting a divorce and Tony just insisted she told him who it was.
“Then she told him it was Jermain Defoe, who plays for Sunderland, and Tony just blurted out, ‘Are you taking the p***’.
“He was absolutely gutted. Apparently she said she didn’t want to hurt him any more. But he’s a Newcastle fan so that made things even worse.
“He can’t believe this has been going on. He ended up taking the rose back from her and giving it to one of his friends instead.”
This week Rachel was spotted in her slippers with the wheeliebin at Defoe’s £2million mansion in upmarket Ponteland, Northumberland.
Her white BMW convertible has been parked on the drive outside the property while the £70,000-a-week forward has been away with his teammates at a warm weather training camp in Dubai.
Notorious ladies’ man Defoe has been linked to a string of women over the years, including models Imogen Thomas and Chantelle Houghton as well as former Miss Great Britain Danielle Lloyd. His relationship with X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke ended in May 2012 after he was caught cheating with yet another model, Laura Brown.
Alexandra ended up writing album tracks about the heartbreak she suffered as a result of his infidelity, with the lyrics to Day Dreams saying: “What were you thinking at the time when you decided to sleep with her?
“It didn’t stop there, this I know, ‘cos the papers f*****g told me so.”
Defoe also had a brief relationship with Anne-Marie Moore in February 2013. She gave birth to a son but a DNA test proved the baby wasn’t his. The striker has played for a string of clubs throughout his career including West Ham, Portsmouth and Tottenham. He has made 55 appearances for England, scoring 19 goals.
He went to Canada to join Major League Soccer club in 2014 but returned in January last year to sign for Sunderland on a deal believed to be worth £70,000 a week.
A friend of Tony and Rachel last week said he suspected the relationship with the soccer star had been going on for a while. Rachel works as a lapdancer in the Blue Velvet club in Newcastle, using the stage name Lydia.
The pal said: “They’ve been together for about five years and he was well aware of what she did for a living. She makes good money and told him she would never give it up.
“They got married two years ago but things started to change between them last year.
“They went on holiday to New York and things weren’t right. Tony’s a painter and plasterer who works in the shipyards. He’s worked hard but has never really been rolling in money.
“When they were in America she was splashing out on Christian Louboutin shoes and wanting to go out all the time.
“When they got back home she started going out more and more. She bought herself a flashy BMW convertible. She’s been living the high life these last few months.”
The pal said that after Christmas and New Year Rachel began speaking of her unhappiness, telling Tony things weren’t working. The friend said: “She was blowing hot and cold with him. Saying ‘I want you’ one minute and then ‘I don’t want you’ the next. He may not have been able to give her all the material things she wanted, but he gave her his heart.”
According to the friend, Tony has no idea how Rachel met Defoe, but he can imagine that it may have been through her work. The friend added: “He doesn’t know how long it has been going on.
“He moved out in the middle of January and then on February 14 she tells him she’s seeing Defoe.
“All this has happened in the last three or four weeks so he is suspicious something may have been going on longer.
“He’s questioning if Defoe has been flashing the cash.
“But he has got a reputation, look at all the girls he’s been linked with. Will he end up finishing with Rachel like all the others? Has she really thrown her marriage away for him? Can he really be trusted?”
Speaking through the intercom at the footballer’s mansion, Rachel refused to comment on her new relationship.
When asked about Defoe as he answered the door at his mum’s house, Tony would only say: “That’s what she’s told me. At the moment I don’t want to talk about it.”
A spokesman for Sunderland AFC declined to comment.
