CHEATING Jermain Defoe is at the centre of a new love riddle — over a wedding planner.
We told last year how the former Spurs and England striker left his wife Donna Tierney, 40, less than six months after their £200,000 OK! magazine wedding.
He then quickly took up with lover Alisha LeMay, 31, who had been a guest at the ceremony.
Defoe, 40, set up home with the blonde Instagram influencer.
But he has now been linked to wedding planner Paige Bethany Mallabourn-Edmondson, from Accrington, Lancs.
Yesterday, Paige’s mum told The Sun on Sunday: “Yes, they are in a relationship together.”
Brunette Paige, 28, is a wedding co-ordinator at the luxury five-star Crow Wood Hotel and Spa in Burnley, Lancs.
She features on their YouTube channel talking about how much she enjoys her job helping couples to cement their love for each other as they wed.
It is not known how or when she met Jermain but a source said: “Paige has been talking about seeing him for a few weeks now.
“She seems very happy and relaxed about it all.”
In June last year, he happily smiled for the cameras alongside beautician Donna Tierney after the couple wed in front of 360 guests at Cliveden House – which featured on the cover of OK! magazine.
They went on honeymoon to the Maldives, with Defoe telling readers: “She’s the person I want to spend my life with.”
But soon afterwards he appeared to have had a change of heart as The Sun on Sunday told how he began pestering a nurse for sex just a month after getting hitched.
And Defoe also started chatting up another woman on Instagram – asking her to meet up.
He and Donna split in December, less than six months after getting married, and officially separated earlier this year.
We told how there was a mystery over whether their marriage was legal as the local register office said they had no record of it.
The former striker then found love with influencer Alisha who had been at the wedding.
And in May this year we revealed the pair had moved in together into a £3million five-bedroom mansion in Herts.
At the time, a source said: “Jermain isn’t one to take things slowly so this move won’t come as a surprise.”
The source added: “Jermain and Alisha are loving life together.”
Last month, Alisha posted pictures of her and Jermain on her Instagram page, including one taken on June 4 from a box at Spurs’ stadium captioned, “Dangerously in love”.
Jermain also played for West Ham, Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Sunderland and Glasgow Rangers and won 57 England caps, scoring 20 international goals.
He is well known for his charity work and was awarded an OBE in 2018.
