Do Not Let Lampard's Ex Invest Your Money

Lampard's ex-fiance Elen Rives didn't spend much time on the market before moving along on a Bosman. She's been spotted dating Lawrie Wilson, a utility player earning £500 a week with non-league side Stevenage Borough.

That's a nice step down from the £150,000 that Lampard was pulling per week at Chelsea.

But now, Rives gets to be something better. No, not poor. She gets to be a Cougar (Rives is 34, Wilson is 21). Oh and a homewrecking one at that.

Apparently Wilson had a girlfriend when he hooked up with Rives. The girlfriend found out the old fashion way, by spotting the couple together in the papers. Awesome. Doesn't Wilson fucking Twitter? Seriously, dude, they are way more modern ways to spinelessly dump your girlfriend so you can upgrade.

The Sun has a fun little graphic to show the downgrade in lifestyle Rives must be incurring, but they also point out that Wilson's family has swank digs. All of this is in the Sun, so the only thing we're willing to say is bankable is the fact that the shirt sponsor of Stevenage sells 'Lamps.'

As one of my favorite stand-up comics once said: "I want a woman who wants me for my money, but is really bad at math."

Precious, you are selling Rives short as an investment adviser. She's selling short on Lampard and buying low on what's his face.

Precious Roy said...

Actually isn't she just closing out a long position she took on Lampard years ago?

Paul Allen?

Everything he invests his money in loses money.

Precious Roy said...

When you have a couple of billion to lose you can afford to be stupid.

TFA - The Seattle Sounders are a great investment.



Elen Rives has a nice rack of lamb, even if she did give Lampard the golden boot.
