KP also had some fair share of controversies in his long years of cricketing career. The South Africa-born England cricketer was part of a sex scandal in 2005. Fellow South African Vanessa Nimmo, who was also Big Brother ‘beauty’, was the former girlfriend of KP.
However in 2005, Vanessa accused that the English cricketer had dumped her after one-month over an SMS. She even went ahead and shared intimate details about them with the media.
She said that KP always remained hungry for sex and would pester her for the same. Nimmo also made it clear that she wasn’t at all interested with KP’s performances in bed.
