Andy Carroll, a former Newcastle United, Liverpool, and West Ham United striker almost missed the opportunity of marrying his long-time lover, Billi Mucklow on Sunday, June 5, 2022.
A few days before the wedding, a picture surfaced on the internet showing the footballer sleeping next to a naked female identified as Taylor Jane Wilkey.
The incident which almost ruined Andy Carroll‘s relationship with Billi Mucklow took place in Dubai when the 33-year-old English striker went on a stag do (bachelor party) with his friends.
Immediately after the picture surfaced, the speculation was that Carroll cheated on his then-wife-to-be. The speculation forced Billi Mucklow to remove her engagement ring which was reportedly worth £200,000.
She didn’t stop there, Billi who has been engaged to Carroll since 2014, moved out of Carroll’s £5million house in Chigwell, Essex due to the cheating scandal.
Despite the whole saga, the guests of the wedding ceremony traveled to the wedding venue and every other aspect of the ceremony went on as planned on Sunday.
Andy Carroll and his groom’s men got to the wedding venue before the bride and had to wait for about 20 minutes before Billi Mucklow arrived.
The 20 minutes was arguably the longest period in the life of Carroll who might have assumed that his bride might have absconded the wedding ceremony due to the cheating scandal.
After a long wait, Billi Mucklow arrived with her bridal train and the wedding ceremony went on as planned. The most intriguing aspect of the ceremony was when the wedding coordinator asked whether there was anyone in the gathering who didn’t want the wedding to go ahead. Immediately after the coordinator asked the question, most of the guests burst out laughter due to the cheating scandal that went viral before the ceremony.
Fortunately for Carroll, nobody antagonist the wedlock. Hence, the wedding ceremony went on smoothly and everyone left like there was no scandal before the ceremony.
Taylor Jane Wilkey admits she partied with Andy Carroll but did not have sex with him
The woman who shared the same bed with Andy Carroll a few days before his wedding ceremony, Taylor Jane Wilkey admitted that she partied with Andy Carroll but did not have sex with the English footballer.
Taylor who is 27-year-old noted that she didn’t know who Andy Carroll was and didn’t know that the English footballer was about to get married.
The 27-year-old lady noted that Carroll was not as known as Manchester City footballer, Jack Grealish or Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford.
“To be honest we didn’t know Andy Carroll was even part of the group when we first met them”, Taylor told the Sun.
“All the lads seemed to be in PR or marketing, or had their own business, no one mentioned football.
“But then we realized it was Andy, I didn’t realize how well known he was, he’s hardly Jack Grealish or Marcus Rashford.”
“I’m sorry, Billi, I know how it looks, but we didn’t have sex”, she added.
“She needs to know nothing sexual happened between me and Andy, I swear.
“He was a gentleman, he just had so much to drink and passed out on the bed.
“He didn’t try anything — and even if he had wanted to, he was too drunk.”
