Legendary England and Liverpool striker Michael Owen allegedly told a reality star to send him 20 topless pictures – saying he would “judge” them, The Mirror claims.
It is claimed that Owen, 41, sent hundreds of texts to former Big Brother housemate Rebecca Jane, 36 – including a string of explicit comments.
BT Sport pundit Owen, has spoken publicly about his life and marriage, written an autobiography and appeared in several TV adverts.
He has a squeaky-clean image and his flirting with mum-of-two Rebecca will shock fans who look to him as a role model.

Married father-of-four, Owen is said to have asked for nude pics, said “leave nothing to the imagination” – and told Rebecca he had viewed one image 65 times.
He suggested they meet up at the races, been intrigued by her physique – asked if her breasts were “falsies” and bragged people think he’s “an angel” until theu meet him.
It is alleged Owen began following Rebecca on Twitter on March 18. She was on Big Brother in 2017, used to run a lovecheat detective agency, and is a regular guest on ITV show This Morning.
The pair exchanged messages and a pal said Rebecca, who has a law degree and is a trainee solicitor, was thrilled to be contacted by a childhood hero.
But the chat quickly turned sexual, particularly during April.
On one trip away from home he asked Rebecca for more pictures, saying: “Come on then, fire them through. It’s a long boring trip to London so I need something to do… leave nothing to the imagination.
“And I’ll advise on the suitability of them for social media – hopefully none of them are suitable.”
After Rebecca obliged, he replied: “Tremendous by the way.”
Pleading for more, he added: “Surely you’ve got pics saved up. I thought I was going to be judging dozens?”
After another snap, he said: “Well you went straight in there with a pic of your t**s so there’s no point taking a back step now. Hmmm. Not bad. Great t**. Definitely a no-go for social media.
“How about send me about 20? That’d be good.”
In another chat, Rebecca sent a photo of her in the bath – after he told her he was sitting in the lounge with his family.
Owen got married to childhood sweetheart Louise Bonsall in June 2005 – with pics splashed in Hello! magazine.Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.

What is about we men and anything in skirts that we tend to do stupid things with monumental consequences??
The other day it was a successful Nigeeian who stupidly allowed an olosho end his life. May God help us all as I too am not safe from tye lairs of the daughters of eve.
I just hope Owen’s marraige is not destroyed as a result of this scandal.
