Rugby star splits with wife, hits the spa with ‘world’s sexiest jockey’

Former rugby player Stuart Hogg has married former jockey Leonna Mayer after splitting from his wife of seven years, Gillian Hogg. According to The Sun.

The Scottish athlete and former mayor, previously dubbed the ‘world’s sexiest jockey’, spent the weekend at Moddershall Oaks Country Spa Retreat in Staffordshire, just days after his ex-wife gave birth to their fourth child. A source told the media that the two spent time together.

Hogg, who said earlier this year that it was her career, was pictured with the mayor in an expired photo she posted to her Instagram Story.

“This is the least Monday ever,” the mayor wrote of the snap, which later resurfaced on social media.

It is unclear when Hogg and Gillian broke up and when he and Meyer started dating.

Mr Hogg and the Mayor were reportedly seen “hanging out in a pub” in Hawick, Scotland, by some locals who claimed Mr Hogg had introduced her to his parents.

The former British & Irish Lions star has yet to speak publicly about the situation, nor has Mr Mayer, who is an on-air reporter for Sky Sports Racing.

Former rugby player Stuart Hogg has split from his wife of seven years, Gillian Hogg, and ex-flat jockey Leonna Mayer, The Sun reports.

What about Gillian? According to The Sun, she replied: “No comment.”

“Gillian is heartbroken,” a source told the magazine. “How much should a woman take?”

“The last thing a new mom wants is to see her children’s father flaunting their new relationship on social media.

“She just doesn’t understand the timing of everything.”

Gillian supported Hogg, Scotland’s all-time leading try-scorer, throughout his career, another source told The Sun.

“Everything came to a head as soon as they returned to their hometown,” the source said. “She couldn’t go on.”

Gillian reportedly left the family home and took the children to live with her mother.

She and Hogg have four children: Archie, Olivia, George, and daughter Phoebe Ann. Born on November 7th.

The ex-lovers reportedly deleted “husband” and “wife” from their social media profiles.
