Raheem Sterling pays hooker for sex on US tour — and is branded a ‘cheapskate’ after he rowed over the fee

Man City winger — who earns £180,000 a week — romped with Kim Kardashian lookalike then sent angry WhatsApp messages about price

Raheem Sterling had sex with a £3,000-a-night hooker while on a pre-season US tour with Manchester City.

The £49million England winger bedded a Kim Kardashian lookalike in Los Angeles last month, according to The Sun.

Sterling later rowed over her fee but paid her cash in an envelope.

Sterling, who earns £180,000 a week, sent a string of angry WhatsApp messages haggling about the cost before finally getting a Man City fixer to leave £1,500 for the prostitute.

She said: “Raheem may be a millionaire but he is a rude cheapskate. He seemed to assume that he would be able to just sleep with me and not pay.

“Considering how much he earns that’s pretty cheap.”

The 22-year-old England star later contacted the woman saying he was too drunk to remember their night together.

His behaviour is likely to infuriate his long-term partner Paige, mum of his six-month old son, and anger strict Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

The romp took place at the Ritz Carlton hotel in LA, which the club was using as the base for the tour.

England star Sterling bedded the girl after a boozy night out at a strip club.

Sterling and his team-mates were given time off in LA before their International Champions Cup game against Real Madrid the following Wednesday.

He wasted no time in getting in contact with the 30-year-old American “model and socialite” after a pal in the UK gave him her number.

WhatsApp messages between the pair show that he contacted her on July 21 and they agreed to meet.

Later that night he was out with friends, believed to be City teammates, when he messaged her.

He asked to meet her and said he was at night club Avenue LA, a favourite haunt of film and music stars. He added: “Going strip club now.”

Sterling met up with the hooker after returning from the club at 4.30am.

She said: “Raheem seemed very arrogant and he had little personality.

“He is obviously used to treating women this way. He needs to change his attitude.”

He eventually agreed to pay the hooker £1,500, half of what she’d asked for

Under Californian state law it is an offence to engage in a “lewd act performed in exchange for money or another form of compensation”.

Those caught can face fines, suspended sentences or jail. The messages between the pair suggest Sterling agreed to pay the woman after he slept with her.

She said: “Raheem had texted me a hotel room number that did not exist, so I was there waiting for him to show up. I was very close to leaving. Finally he arrived and we went to his room.

“It was not particularly big and his suitcases were strewn all over the floor. You could tell he wasn’t staying for long.

“Raheem seemed drunk and his breath smelled of alcohol. He was upset with me for not meeting him earlier and was not very talkative.

“So I made the first move and we started messing around.”


NOT PICKED YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM YET? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?


Afterwards the woman, who has dated a string of US sports stars, clashed with Sterling over cash.

She demanded $4,000 (£3,000) but he insisted he was only going to pay $2,000 (£1,500).

She said they argued before falling asleep in his suite.

The next morning Sterling headed off to an LA pool party without paying her.

She said: “Raheem complained he needed to go to a cash machine.

“But he said he also needed to buy some clothes for the pool party and he’d be going straight there. He said he would leave the money in an envelope behind reception at the hotel.”

But he failed to do so and the pair rowed again by text.

An apologetic Sterling messaged her later and said: “I was so drunk yesterday. That’s why I forgot.”

In one message sent after their romp, she said: “I need you to put the money in the front today.”

She added: “And please put the total of the 4k we spoke about.”

Sterling responded saying: “I told u 2k.”

She hit back: “I didn’t agree on 2k we need to meet in the middle plus u make me wait.”

Sterling refused to cave in but did promise that the $2,000 would be left behind reception.

He eventually got a pal to drop an envelope, with the escort girl’s name on the front, behind the hotel reception.

The envelope was dropped off by a fixer who has worked for Manchester City and is pals with a number of the club’s stars.

The fixer wrote his mobile number on the packet.

There is no suggestion he knew what was in the envelope or why he was handing it over.

After the girl picked up the money she messaged Sterling to thank him but said: “I wanted more.”

She told The Sun on Sunday: “I was not happy as he only paid me half of what we agreed. I thought that would be the last I would hear from him. But he continued to text me. I didn’t really want any more to do with him.”
