FOOTBALLER Danny Simpson’s jilted lover told last night how she and the Premier League ace watched the Tulisa sex video before he began dating the TV girl.
Stephanie Ward, expecting a second child with the Newcastle United defender, said he viewed the infamous recording with her on their sofa, then MOCKED Tulisa’s
Stephanie, 25 — who has accused Simpson of cheating after he was seen dating the X Factor star — said: “The video didn’t turn us on or anything, it was rubbish.”
She told last night how he slept with her while pursuing Tulisa Contostavlos.
Stephanie claimed Simpson bedded her on Bonfire Night, when he was already swapping texts with Tulisa.
She also revealed how she and Simpson watched the N-Dubz singer’s infamous sex video together — only for him to LAUGH at 24-year-old Tulisa’s bedroom technique.
And she claimed she and the Newcastle Utd defender discussed getting MARRIED last summer.
Graduate Stephanie spoke out after Tulisa, seen out with Simpson this week, angrily denied accusations she was a home-wrecker — and branded her a
“psychotic nutter” to her 2.6million Twitter followers.
Stephanie, mother of Simpson’s 18-month-old daughter Skye and expecting their second child, said: “I’m totally confused to be honest because if Danny saw someone like Tulisa in a club he’d walk by.
“He’s told me that they slept together but haven’t had sex yet.
“It’s so upsetting as we only had sex with each other on Bonfire Night after having a lovely night at a firework display with Skye.
“To think he slept with me while he was chasing after Tulisa — it’s disgusting.”
Stephanie, who has a 2:1 university law degree, said she was left devastated after hearing Simpson, 25, had shared dates with Tulisa.
And she recalled how she and the soccer star giggled at the infamous sex video. Stephanie said: “Danny showed me the video on his phone as we sat on the sofa. I think one of the football lads sent it him.
“We watched it together but it didn’t turn us on or anything — it was rubbish.
I remember Dan laughing his head off.
“He said, ‘Oh my god she needs to work on her tekkers (slang for technique)’.
It’s ironic to think that he didn’t think she was very good in the bedroom — and now he’s with her.”
Stephanie claimed Salford-born Simpson, who joined Newcastle from Manchester
United, was stunned when he discovered he was to become a father for the second time.
She said: “I found out I was pregnant a fortnight ago and he wasn’t very happy.
“He said, ‘I haven’t got a club — they’re not renewing my contract in May — how are we going to afford another baby?’
“But he’s on about £20,000 a week and comes out with around £10,000 after tax. He’s just really bad with money.
“He only gives me £2,000 a month out of his wage and that’s to cover
everything me and our daughter Skye might need.
“Danny also said he didn’t want to deal with the side-effects of my pregnancy — specifically morning sickness. I was devastated.”
Stephanie, now 11 weeks pregnant, said she fears for her future after Simpson ditched her. She said: “There was I, thinking about a little brother or sister for Skye. Now I just keep thinking, ‘How could you do this to me?’
“I’ve lost everything almost overnight. It’s only last June we were discussing getting married on holiday.
“Danny flew us to Barbados in the summer. He paid for my mum to come too so we’d have a bit of ‘us’ time as she looked after Skye. One night we went to this incredibly romantic restaurant overlooking the sea. It was so lovely and we talked about how we’d loved each other for a long time — we talked about having more babies and he said he’d had his fun and it was time to settle down. I couldn’t have been happier.
“He started talking about getting married and was pricing up how much it’d cost to fly our families out to Barbados. He said he would pay for 12 of my family to jet out and 12 of his. But he said it had to be a June wedding because then his footie mates could attend.
“I had visions of a beach ceremony and was so excited. But everything has been ruined now.
“We’ve been shouting at each other on the phone since I found out about Tulisa.”
Simpson and Tulisa went for a romantic restaurant meal in Manchester last Tuesday before spending the night at a five-star hotel.
The following day they headed to Danny’s £1million mansion in Darras Hall, near Newcastle — stopping on the way to stock up on supplies at a Tesco store.
Tulisa insists Simpson told her his relationship with Stephanie was over before they got together.
A statement released by her lawyers yesterday said: “Tulisa categorically denies any allegation that she entered any relationship with Danny Simpson while he was still in a relationship with Stephanie Ward.” The furious telly star wrote on Twitter: “u r a liar n a psychotic obsessed nutta! Wait til I tell it how it is … wrongen.”
She added: “I don’t want 2 get in 2 a public war of words.”
Last night a spokeswoman for Simpson said: “It is not true that Danny was still sleeping with Stephanie when he was ‘pursuing’ Tulisa. Danny only met Tulisa last week.”
The spokeswoman also said the footballer’s relationship with Stephanie had ended well before he got together with Tulisa. Simpson is adamant he has not behaved improperly and has not “cheated” on Stephanie because his relationship with her had already ended.
The spokeswoman added that Stephanie had moved out of Simpson’s Newcastle home in April and he is still providing for his daughter.
Star told of ‘footie fella’ for Radio 1 joke
By ANGHARAD LLEWELLYN
TULISA joked of dating a married top footballer when she played a prank on her PR just weeks ago.
The X Factor judge rang Simon Jones while on Nick Grimshaw’s Radio 1 breakfast show.
She pretended to have a dilemma of being photographed kissing a married soccer star who she was supposedly dating.
During the stunt, aired on October 24, she told Simon: “You’re going to absolutely kill me, I’ve been really stupid. Like really, really stupid.”
She explained: “I started dating a footballer. But he’s married. I think we got photographed together yesterday.”
Continuing the joke she said they were snapped kissing. She explained: “I met him at a club. I didn’t know anything about him being married.”
She added: “I started dating him and I found out he had a wife and now I’m just in this mad predicament and I’m in love with him… ”
Simon said: “Oh T! Oh my God!”
Tulisa carried on: “I don’t know what to do and he’s saying he wants to leave his wife for me and I’m in absolute bits.”
Simon, unaware of the prank, urged her to remain calm. She then hung up — and burst into hysterics with Nick, 28.
