She knows what the partners going through — she experienced the same thing when she dated a professional rugby player who sent sexts to other women.
Speaking on Fox FM this morning, Box described the excuse that her ex-boyfriend gave:
“He was a rugby player who played for Sydney Uni rugby. I remember I busted him with stuff on his phone from another girl and he tried to explain to me that when you’re a professional athlete and you have girls throwing themselves at you, it’s like an addictive thing,” she said.
“He said I love you and I love our relationship but girls throw themselves at me and there’s something addictive about that. I forgave him and it kept going until he did it again and then fully cheated on me.”
Box advised any sportsmen hoping to share their genitalia with other women to crop their heads out of photos.
“Admittedly, that wouldn’t have helped for Swanny, necessarily,” she said, referring to the heavily tattoed Swan.
Box said the people who suffer most from this kind of public embarrassment are the men’s partners.
“The two people I really feel for in this are Travis’ fiancee and Swanny’s girlfriend of eight years,” said Box.
