Swarms of tabloid ‘journalists’ have arrived at the home of Bath and England star Danny Cipriani this morning.
It comes a day after it was widely reported that an England rugby union player has been arrested on suspicion of raping a teenager who had allegedly been drugged.
However, as RUCK knew all along, Cipriani had nothing to do with this ongoing story, which has been confirmed by his wife in an emotional statement.
She wrote: “A load of journalist have turned up outside my home this morning, causing me great alarm and distress, guessing (wrongly) that the story already in some parts of the press about a rugby player and his partner on suspicion of sexual offences might relate to Danny and myself.
“I presume they are making that wild guess because I am the same age as the woman is reported to be in the stories about that case.
“This is completely unwarranted and wholly unacceptable. Neither Danny nor myself have been arrested, nor do we have anything to do with the reported case, whatsoever. We do not know anything about it.
“The press have come to the wrong people and I would ask they leave us alone, immediately.”
Telegraph Sport has revealed the player involved is NOT BELIEVED to be a member of Eddie Jones’ last England squad.’
However, the England boss is believed to have been briefed on the situation and told not to answer questions relating to the subject under any circumstances.
A police spokesperson said in a statement: ‘Officers were called shortly before 11am on Sunday January 9 to a report of a sexual assault on a female.
‘A woman in her late teens was reported to have been sexually assaulted.
‘Both have since been released on bail as enquiries continue and a number of lines of enquiry are being followed up by detectives.’
