Cricketer attempts suicide

2010-10-03 10:24
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 on Friday night that doctors had been called to the couple's swanky home in Irene outside of Pretoria after Nel tried to take his own life. She was expecting their first child in April.

"He is not in any immediate danger and there are many doctors looking after him," she said.

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

It was revealed earlier that Nel had had an extra-marital 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.
