The drama surrounding this season of The Bachelor continues to increase as news comes out that Brad Womack may have been dating when the show started taping, and now the notorious Michelle Money has admitted to having an affair with a married NBA basketball star. Read on for the scoop…
Life & Style magazine broke the news in their latest issue – Michelle Money admitted to them that she once carried on an affair with married NBA basketball player, Carlos Boozer. The news suddenly makes Michelle, of the mysterious black eye and bad attitude, even more notorious as this season of The Bachelor continues.
Michelle told Life & Style, “Yes, I was in a relationship with Carlos while he was still married. What I did was wrong.”
The magazine lists Michelle’s vocation as ‘actress’, though she is listed as ‘hairstylist’ on The Bachelor. She is a single mother to a 5 year-old daughter, Brielle.
According to the Life & Style article, when Michelle first met Carlos Boozer, she was recently divorced and living in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he played as a forward for the Utah Jazz NBA basketball team.Â Michelle implied to the magazine that she was mislead by Carlos, who told her he was already separated from his wife when they began dating.Â She stated that she regrets any part she played in the break up of his marriage to wife, Cece.
Michelle went on to say, “I should never have been so naive to assume what I was told was true. Iâ€™m not trying to shy away from the fact that he was still married. I donâ€™t put that on Carlos. I donâ€™t put that on anyone but myself. I feel terrible for Cece for that pain sheâ€™s had to go through and that I am a part of it.”
Carlos ultimately filed for divorce in March of 2009. He and Michelle ended things in June of that same year.
