Danny Cipriani has claimed that Kelly Brook cheated on her then-boyfriend Thom Evans with him by going on a secret holiday together.
The rugby star, who dated the model between 2008 and 2010, made the claims in his bombshell memoir and recalled how the actress then dated teammate Thom, 38, between 2010 and 2012.
The sports star has now opened up about how hurt he was about Kelly and Thom’s relationship and how he tried to get to know her behind his pal’s back.
He also described cutting his wrists after an argument with Kelly one night in Las Vegas and claimed she slapped him after he chatted with a stripper at a club.
Danny told The Sun on Sunday: “I felt like it was fair game… I felt like what was mine wasn’t mine anymore. “I was friends with Thom. “It was definitely a difficult scenario.”

He claimed he and Kelly met secretly in Mauritius while she was still in a relationship with Thom, although Danny believed this was immoral.
Web has contacted representatives for Danny and Kelly for comment.
The couple split in June of that year, and it wasn’t long before Kelly was dating his boyfriend in November, leaving Danny heartbroken.
He claimed that while he was in Australia working for the Melbourne Rebels, Kelly continued to send him messages, leaving the athlete confused.
But even though Danny believed Kelly was what he wanted, he admitted it wasn’t the fairytale ending he was hoping for, even when they got back together.
He revealed: “When you love someone, when you’re with your soulmate, it’s difficult.” It’s a challenge. I didn’t have that kind of relationship with Kelly. And it just wasn’t love… for me.’
Danny’s autobiography Who am I? is set to hit theaters on September 14th and features the star discussing her troubled relationship.
He joined the England rugby team in 2007, but it was his relationship with Kelly that catapulted him to new levels of prominence.
After they broke up, Danny revealed that he was insanely jealous of the couple, especially considering he counted Thom among his friends after they were Wasp teammates for two years until 2006.
The star said he was determined to win the brunette bombshell back and the whole thing had almost become like a game.

He said: “I felt like it was fair game… Looking back, a lot of it was selfish. ‘I felt like what was mine was no longer mine.’
When Thom and Kelly announced they were expecting a baby in March 2011, Danny was devastated.
Tragically, the couple lost the baby when Kelly miscarried in the fifth month of her pregnancy, and Danny claimed the secret trip to Mauritius took place after the devastating event.
The couple had a tumultuous relationship, and Danny also reveals how their tempestuous relationship spectacularly unraveled for the first time when they went on holiday to Las Vegas in the summer of 2010.
Kelly reportedly encouraged him to have a lap dance at a strip club when the situation got out of hand.
After he started flirting with the stripper, he told her that he was breaking up with Kelly, and when she found out, he remembered her coming out and slapping him.
The situation escalated and Kelly had to be restrained by several bouncers.
The evening’s chaos took a huge toll on Danny, who went back to the hotel and injured himself with a piece of broken glass.
He said: “I felt like I just couldn’t express how I felt because I had so much inside of me that I hadn’t dealt with yet. “That’s the way to go, in my opinion.”
The relationship was incredibly up and down and it seems Danny didn’t know where he stood with his other half.

When Kelly and Thom finally split in January 2013, she denied speculation that Danny was involved and claimed that she and Thom had mutually agreed to go their separate ways.
She and Danny rekindled the relationship for a brief fling, but the stay didn’t last long as she found adult messages from dozens of other women on his phone.
Danny’s words come in retaliation after the TV personality wrote in her own autobiography in 2014 that Danny was so busy chasing women that he couldn’t find time to flush the toilet.
