Tulisa branded a 'homewrecker' by footballer Danny's girlfriend

THE pregnant girlfriend of footballer Danny Simpson has branded X Factor judge Tulisa a "homewrecker".

Stephanie Ward (25) is three months pregnant with their second child.

Although she describes her relationship with the Newcastle footballer as "on and off", she said today they were very much together when Simpson (24) was pictured in a hotel with Tulisa.

"We've been off and on for the last seven years, but absolutely solid for the last two. As far as I'm concerned, he has cheated on me," she said.

Stephanie and Danny have one daughter together -- 18-month-old Skye-Lorena -- and she is expecting their second child in six months.

In the interview, she described herself as feeling numb when photographs emerged of her partner appearing to check into a Manchester hotel with the X Factor judge.

And it got worse 24 hours later, when it was reported that Tulisa spent Wednesday night with Danny at his mansion on the outskirts of Newcastle.

Angry Stephanie hit out at singer Tulisa, calling her a "home wrecker".

"I don't know how he can throw away his perfect family for someone who is constantly pictured with different guys," she said.

London-born singer Tulisa has been linked to a number of men in recent times.

She enjoyed a brief relationship with Skins actor Jack O'Connell and was also linked to Shameless star Jody Latham. In February she split from her N-Dubz co-star Fazer after almost two years together.

Earlier this year, a sex tape featuring Tulisa and a former boyfriend was leaked online.


Danny also has form. In April 2009, he was spotted at top London restaurant Nobu with former Big Brother star Imogen Thomas, who had an affair with Ryan Giggs.

Last year Natasha Giggs, who also had an affair with footballer Ryan, who is her brother-in-law, admitted she had 'a fling' with Danny during a break from her husband Rhodri Giggs.
