TEAM RIO; Ferdinand scored TEN with girls, other told court.

Byline: Adrian Shaw

RIO Ferdinand is a serial love rat who has cheated on his wife with at least ten women, a court heard yesterday.

And the Manchester United star's many conquests even included a threein-a-bed sex session while on holiday in Cyprus, it was alleged.

The High Court in London was also told that, among others, he dated a Page Three girl, a Pop Idol contestant and two Israeli models - and even had sex with a woman on his stag night.

Married Ferdinand, 32, is suing the Sunday Mirror for breach of privacy over a kiss and tell article it ran last year when he took over the England captaincy from disgraced John Terry.

Terry was sacked after it was revealed he had had an alleged secret affair with lingerie model Vanessa Perroncel, the former lover of his then Chelsea teammate Wayne Bridge.

Ferdinand's ex-girlfriend, interior designer Carly Storey, 32, sold her story to the Sunday Mirror and claimed she had dated him for 13 years both before and after his marriage to wife Rebecca, the mother of his three children.

Ferdinand claims his privacy was breached and, although he has never sued over previous articles about his infidelity, he says "enough is enough".

But Gavin Millar QC, representing the Sunday Mirror, said he was a publicity seeker who had rebranded himself as a role model to young people and a devoted family man.

Millar said: "He is certainly not a private figure. He is used to dealing with press coverage including aspects of his private life and relationships."

Abortion

He named nine women, other than Carly, who Ferdinand allegedly cheated with while he was "in a long term relationship with Rebecca".

He said he had a fling in 2002 with Pop Idol contestant Sarah Whatmore, and was linked in the same year to Brazilian model Tatiane Rosalino, who he met at a magazine shoot.

Millar also said he dated air hostess Lauren Alcorn the year after and paid for her to have an abortion, telling her: "I don't want no kid".

Then, in 2004, he had a three-in-abed session with two women called Catherine Shepherd and Savannah Benson in Ayia Napia.

Millar said Ferdinand was caught cheating in June 2004, this time with Israeli model Lilach Yafe.

In the same month, he was said to have dated Page Three girl Holly McGuire and told her she was "the only woman in his life".

Ferdinand was then said to have had sex with stripper Coralie Robinson in Tokyo but "panicked" when Rebecca flew to see him.

In June 2009, while on his stag night, Ferdinand was alleged to have had sex with another Israeli model, Tslil Sela.

Millar said: "The claimant has never issued a denial or response countering these allegations. Neither has he brought any action over them."

He added: "His skilful self publicising since 2006, painting himself as a role model for the young, a faithful partner and devoted father, has brought admiration and public respect.

"But this was not the truth as the article demonstrates."

The paper claims the article was in the public interest and superseded his right to privacy. The case continues.
