What Athlete has a 14 Year Old Wife?

2004_11_sports_rkelly_tape_mosley.gifChicago community activist Derrick Mosley was arrested and charged with extortion after phoning the business manager of a professional athlete and demanding $20,000 in return for a tape showing that athlete's wife having sex with a professional musician.

The Trib's initial article didn't mention any of the celebs involved, but Tuesday afternoon, Billboard reported that R. Kelley is the rumored professional musician invoved. And we were pretty certain he only liked the young 'uns.


Finally, the involved athlete's name has surfaced, too. Gary Sheffield, of the New York Yankees. He who finished second in the AL MVP voting announced yesterday, as well. According to a statement released by Sheffield, his wife had a long-term relationship with a professional musician 10 years ago, before they were married. That certainly drops the juiciness factor on this story -- it's not like she was sneaking off to visit our fine city while the Yankees were on a west coast swing. Although E! reports that the tape shows Sheff's wife involved in a threesome. Maybe the other woman was the 14 year old?
