— Everton ace cheats by telling blonde he’s a milkman
— £45k-a-week Distin’s 3-year fling with air hostess
— Defender has daughter with his long-term partner
— French star has warned players off ‘booze and birds’
When trusting Katie Hulne saw a snap of the £45,000-a-week French defender in his kit he said it was his twin.
And, when she finally discovered he had a long-term partner, he lied that they were only together for the sake of their daughter.
Last night a friend said: “We told Katie she was being naive. She was devastated.
“He was quite filthy which really surprised Katie but turned her on. Maybe now she’ll realise he was acting like so many other footballers — having his cake and eating it.”
Just four months ago Distin, 35 — who has boasted of being a family man — warned other players to keep away from “booze and birds” if they wanted to make it big in the Premier League.
He told France Football magazine: “The nightlife is far crazier. People drink far more and things are hotter in every respect.
“When you come here you need to take care not to fall into these traps.
“It’s often your education and the people around you that can make the difference.”
Despite the sermon, Distin wooed air stewardess Katie, 39, with a string of increasingly racy texts and sent her naked photos.
They had sex in cars and up against a tree in woods. On one birthday he sang Happy Birthday “Big T*ts” in French.
Katie first met Sylvain on a night out near his home in Hale, Cheshire, in December 2009.
She chatted to a group of lads at the next table — including former Everton striker James Beattie and goalie Tim Howard. But she only had eyes for 6ft 4in Distin.
He told her he was a milkman and the pair swapped numbers.
They texted each other repeatedly, with the footballer posing as a tennis pro and a cyclist.
The pal said: “Katie had no idea who he was.
“He had such a good body that she thought he must do a lot of sport but she was a bit confused.
“She fancied the pants off him but it was just daft flirting to begin with.”
They eventually met up in a hotel in Hale in March 2010, laying on the bed and talking for four hours.
Distin then left with Katie assuming he simply did not fancy her — but he was soon bombarding her with texts and demands for naughty pictures.
The messages got more saucy, with the former Manchester City and Portsmouth star confessing he was “horny” for her.
They met again at the same hotel ahead of the 2010 season. The friend said: “Katie was really nervous and had dressed up specially.
“He made the first move to kiss her. Her legs turned to jelly and they were at it like rabbits.”
Distin did not stay the night and left cash by the bed to pay for the room.
When they chatted on BlackBerry Messenger his profile picture showed him in full Everton kit.
Yet he still pretended he was not a footballer and claimed the snap was of his “twin brother”.
The friend said: “Katie is really sweet and trusted him. She said the sex was amazing and that he was incredibly ‘gifted’. He called her sexy and couldn’t get enough of her bum.”
She learned the truth about his job and they continued meeting once or twice a month, unless he was on holiday with his family.
When they were apart the pair exchanged explicit texts.
Often he posed naked or shirtless from away-game hotels to show off the formidable physique that had teammates nickname him Cyborg.
In May 2012 he texted from Birmingham asking for pictures and saying he “couldn’t wait”.
In September — after Everton lost a cup game in Leeds despite him scoring — he rushed straight to see Katie still in his kit.
The pal said: “They would often meet for sex in either his car or hers.
“Sylvain would be careful — he has a distinctive Bentley so he never used that.
“He liked it rough and they even did it in woods near his home and up against a tree.”
But despite his wealth, he never bought her any gifts — not even for Christmas or her birthday.
Katie eventually found out about his partner but hoped he would leave her.
The friend said he claimed “things were not great at home” and that they had just “grown apart”.
The affair continued until last month when he went on holiday to France with his family.
Distin is regarded within the game as a model professional who often does charity work.
And speaking about his personal life, he bragged: “I am really close to my family and luckily I have good people around me who I can talk about things with.”
Distin had a season on loan to Newcastle before he left Paris Saint-Germain on a full-time switch to City in 2002.
He moved to Pompey in 2007 and helped them win the FA Cup in 2008 before leaving for Everton in 2009. He was the first foreign player to reach 400 Premier League appearances.
Last night Everton — club motto Nothing But The Best Is Good Enough — refused to comment.
But earlier this year Prime Minister David Cameron called on high-profile footballers to behave as if they were role models to millions.
Following the furore over Liverpool’s Luis Suarez biting a rival player’s arm, he spoke in general terms about footballers’ influence on the nation’s children.
He said: “When we are trying to bring up our children properly and they love football, they do look at football players as role models and we have to recognise that.
“The fact is you can’t wrap children in cotton wool and hide them away from the world.
“They do see these real-life examples and repeat them back to you.”
Two Uber Vehicles Rolled Over In Collision In Lagos, RRS Came To The Rescue
two UBER vehicles that rolled over in collision simultaneously at Ogudu Alapere on their way to the Lagos Island around 3:00 a.m today.
LASEMA arrived later to assist the victims. No life was lost in the accident.
Recall that in 2017, the former Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode handed over no fewer than 150 First Aid Kits to the operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Command, so as to administer First Aid to victims of emergencies. Over 380 officers of the RRS had been trained by the State Government on accident scene safety, controlling bleeding, Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and moving accident victims.
Muhammad Makes List Of Top 10 Baby Names In The US For The First Time
For the first time, Muhammad is one of the top 10 most popular baby names for boys in the United States, according to data from the parenting website BabyCenter.
Muhammad ranks at No. 10, up four spots from last year. The name has been climbing steadily on BabyCenter’s rankings over the years and first entered the top 100 in 2013.
“Muslim families often choose Muhammad for firstborn sons to honor the prophet and bring blessings to the child,” Linda Murray, BabyCenter’s global editor in chief, said in a news release. “The name also has multiple spellings, and that helps a name get into the top 10.”
Liam was the most popular name for boys, pushing out Jackson, which had spent six consecutive years at the top of the list. Sophia remained No. 1 for girls, marking a decade as the top choice.
BabyCenter says its data comes from almost 600,000 parents who shared their baby’s name with the organization in 2019. Its rankings also combine names that sound the same but have multiple spellings (like Mohammad and Muhammad).
The Social Security Administration also ranks the popularity of baby names using records of all babies born in the US, but the agency treats each unique spelling as a separate name.
The agency has not released its own list, but Social Security data shows Muhammad rose from No. 620 in 2000 to No. 345 in 2018. The agency does not include varied spellings in that ranking.
Names of Arabic origin are on the rise, according to BabyCenter. As Muhammad broke into the top 10 for boys, Aaliyah made the top 10 for girls.
Isla, a Scottish name, is also climbing — up 38 spots from last year. Eleanor and Miles were tied for second-fastest climbing names.
These are the top 10 baby names for boys and girls this year, according to BabyCenter’s rankings.

FRSC To Introduce N50,000 Fine For Traffic Light Violators In 2020
The Corps Marshal of Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi has said that traffic light violations by motorists will attract a fine of N50,000 beginning from next year, lamenting that the offence was taking a worrisome dimension.
Dr. Oyeyemi, who disclosed this while speaking at the first ‘ember month stakeholders forum’ organised by the FRSC in collaboration with the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, in Abuja, said he had proposed to the Joint Tax Board that the traffic light violation fine should be increased from N4,000 to N50,000 to deter erring motorists.
The Corps Marshal vowed that his men would continue to arrest and sanction motorists using phones while driving.
He explained that drivers were free to use google map but said the phone should be placed on the dashboard with both hands on the steering wheel.
According to him, “You can’t hold the phone with one hand and drive with the other while using google map. That is distracted driving and the law is clear on that. When you stop people for traffic violations, their lawyers would write to you and threaten to sue.
“FRSC has 120 lawyers and I would recruit more next year; The level of violent reactions in this country is alarming.”
“We have noticed the rising incidents of traffic light violations and so, we are going to increase the minimum fine to N50,000 from N4,000. Offenders would also undergo an emotional psychological test at the hospital to determine if you are fit to drive.”
Oyeyemi, condemned in strong term a situation where people would veer their anger on officers of the FRSC and personnel of other paramilitary agencies and violently attacked them.
In his remarks, Chief Executive Officer, FCCPC, Babatunde Irukera, said his agency would ensure that fleet owners in the country took passenger insurance to better protect their customers during trips.
Irukera also revealed that the commission would also roll out a policy on ageing vehicles owned by fleet firms, noting that” prioritising protection of people will not be negotiated.”
According to him, “We succeeded in putting outpatients bill of rights last year; we will insist that the vehicles be in good condition and operate in a good and safe manner”.
