Footballer Ashley Cole has filed an action for breach of privacy over stories which claim he had affairs with a string of women while married to wife Cheryl.
The particulars of claim make reference to stories about alleged relationships involving Aimee Walton, Brooke Healy, Coralie Robinson and Jakki Degg.
Cole accuses the four women of infringing his rights in a flagrant, self-serving and unilateral manner and says publication of stories about his sex life was wrongful and a breach of confidence, an infringement of his right to privacy and a misuse of private information.
The stories were in The Sun and Sun Online between 25 January and 22 February. He is suing for damages of £200,000 over 12 stories published earlier this year.
He says the question of truth or falsity is irrelevant and his alleged sexual relationships with the women should have stayed private.
