ESPN baseball analyst former General Manager of the New York Mets Steve Phillips has taken a leave of absence amid as his sex scandal has focused attention on his lover Brooke Hundley, complete with pictures.
According to reports, Steve Phillips, who was married and lived with his wife and four children was involved in a relationship with ESPN employee Brooke Hundley.
Affairs aren’t usually such a big deal in this day and age, but it’s what happened after Phillips broke off the relationship where things took a turn towards full blown bizarre.
Brooke Hundley is alleged to have taken the dumping badly, and subsequently sent Phillips’ wife Marni a letter describing their relationship — and a birthmark Phillips has on his crotch. A woman scorned perhaps, except that Hundley crashed her car into Phillips’ home after dropping off the letter.
On the creepy side, Hundley allegedly impersonated a 16-year-old to stalk Phillips’ son online as a way to get back at him as well, an allegation that is currently the subject of a police investigation.
Phillips said in a statement that “I am deeply sorry that I have put my family and colleagues through this. It is a personal matter that I will not comment on further. I have, however, asked for a leave of absence to address this with my family and to avoid unnecessary distractions.”
Update August 2010: There are a number of Brooke Hundley pictures online, none of which we “stole” from Hundley by this site as she claims. We’d note the screenshot of Google Images above indicating the photos.
Note that the original time stamp on this post reads Oct 21, 2009 @ 15:45 (US Pacific), that’s 6-12 hrs after the “said” pictures were published online. The exact same photos have appeared in newspaper and TV reports: check Google images.
One thing is for sure: Hundley is a grade A nutter.
