Coming hot on the heels of Tom and Katie’s weirdly quick divorce settlement, this item from Blind Gossip: “When the person who appears to have the power in a relationship backs down quickly in a dispute, you know that there have to be some compelling reasons why. Although all the talk up to this point has been about his involvement with a powerful group, there were actually three other reasons he settled so quickly.
Here are the three reasons: 1. His very personal relationship with a professional athlete. 2. His very personal relationship with a musician. 3. His very personal relationship with a famous actor.
She was ready and willing to expose all three relationships to get what she wanted. The scandal of having these three famous people deposed by attorneys about their sexual relationships would have destroyed all four men. So, he gave her the thing she wanted most so that his biggest secret could remain a secret.” (via ONTD)
OBVIOUSLY, the sports star is David Beckham and the famous actor is Jeremy Renner, duh. Most commenters at ONTD and Blind Gossip are assuming the musician is Rob Thomas, whom he was rumored to be sleeping with back in 2005, but I never really bought that. Any other guesses?
