Nel attempts suicide as infidelity claims rise

2010-10-04 00:00

PRETORIA — Former Proteas cricketer André Nel apparently tried to commit suicide after three more women, one of them a prostitute, told of having slept with him.

Nel’s pregnant wife, Deanne Weitz, confirmed that doctors were called to the couple’s swanky home in Irene outside Pretoria on Friday night after Nel tried to take his own life.

She is expecting their first child in April.

“He is not in any immediate danger and there are many doctors looking after him,” she told Rapport.

It was unclear what exactly happened. Earlier in the day, Weitz moved in with her parents in Benoni after it emerged that Nel had visited a Pretoria prostitute four times since November 2007.

It was revealed earlier that Nel had an extramarital affair with Jelena Kultiasova while he was playing cricket in England last month.

Meanwhile, two other women have come forward with similar allegations about Nel.
