Sponsors can deal with a lot.
If you are famous enough and beloved by millions you can get away with a lot more than someone a little less known.
It is that time of the decade where a certain group of celebrities expand their brand.
One of those is this A+ list athlete.
Now, everyone knows he cheats.
He cheats all the time on whoever he is dating.
He can’t make it longer than a day or two without cheating.
Sponsors are actually OK with that. He is not married so they don’t have an issue with it. They would prefer he settle down as he has indicated he is going to, but what none of his sponsors knows or his girlfriend knows or even his family is that our athlete has a woman he pays every month a great deal of money.
The woman is actually someone who made headlines a couple of years ago.
She is a pre op transsexual who came thisclose to breaking up the marriage of a couple of reality stars.
It turns out when our athlete read those stories and heard about her, he tracked her down and has been hooking up with her weekly ever since.
Our athlete pays her a great deal of money and with that money comes silence.
He only wants her to keep silent for the next year or so while he cashes in on his latest round of fame.
His sponsors would not be happy with his choice of hookup partner and it could cost him millions if they find out.
