Controversial love cheat referee Mark Clattenburg, 42, in secret affair with divorcee, 50, and faces red card from wife.
Former Premier League ref Mark Clattenburg has been rumbled after sending lover X-rated texts and asking for saucy pictures, The UK Sun Reports.
CONTROVERSIAL ref Mark Clattenburg is facing a red card from his wife after being caught playing away.
The love cheat, 42, hooked up with divorcee Andrea Hodgkinson, 50, after she rented his luxury apartment.
They would meet for passionate monthly trysts where they “would practically tear each other’s clothes off”, according to a pal of Andrea’s.
The former Premier League ref, who now earns £500,000 a year with his whistle in Saudi Arabia, also sent her X-rated texts and asked for saucy pics.
But he duped Andrea by telling her he was single and would quit his Saudi contract to be with her.
Her pal said: “She feels so sorry for his wife and wants her to know the truth and know what kind of man Mark is.”
The two met in February when Andrea began house hunting in Newcastle where she got a new job.
Their relationship blossomed but Andrea says she had no idea Clattenburg was married to second wife Claire, 42.
Andrea told her pal: “He is a very charming, romantic man. He swept me off my feet.
“He’s affectionate and kind and I fell for him. He’s not what I expected. He’s got that hard-faced refereeing persona but he’s not like that at all in real life.’’
Messages showed Andrea was stunned to find out about Clattenburg’s marriage
Clattenburg even had Andrea on his mind while in New York for a weekend break with his wife.
He messaged her on WhatsApp from their hotel balcony asking if she was available so he could “pop over to f*** you’’.
Sorting out the rendezvous he added: “Make sure you have a short skirt on, heels, stockings and no knickers on when I arrive,’’ adding he was ‘’so f****** horny’’.
Father-of-one Clattenburg also urged Andrea to send him a picture of herself in her underwear so he could ‘’release my pressure’’.
The pal said: “Andrea had no idea that he was married. She’s not that type of woman.
“She is very respectable and would never have got involved with him if she knew he had a wife.”
Her doubts began to creep in after he cut short a romantic getaway they had planned in Dubai.
She realised they never went out together and he would not spend more than a few hours with her.
The penny dropped last month when she saw a photo of him with Claire on Instagram.
Her pal said: “She was furious and texted him straight away. She said he should have told her.”
Clattenburg, who was under fire for comments about a Chelsea-Spurs match last year, told her: “I’m getting battered from all angles today.”
He lives in a £750,000 home near Newcastle and was the Prem’s most outspoken ref.
