Celebrity dad named and shamed for 'cheating' on famous spouse in threesome – despite court gagging order

A man who claims to have had a threesome with one half of a Hollywood power couple and one other person has been banned from talking about his ménage à trois -- by the partner who WASN'T involved.

Confused? You're not alone. British press have been banned from publishing the names of the celebrity couple, known only as ‘PJS’ and ‘YMA’ in court papers, after the partner who wasn't involved (YMA) took the man who spilled the beans about PJS's infidelity to court.

The man revealed that he and the millionaire celebrity's partner started exchanging messages in 2009, which eventually culminated in a three-way with another person.

PJS and YMA, who is said to have been fully aware of his partner's extramarital activities, have children.

The man said he was "attracted to the glitz and glamour of that life."

But after he and the other person attempted to go public with their sexploits with the PJS earlier this year, a British High Court judge turned down an application for a privacy injunction "because [PJS] infidelity contradicted his public portrayal of married commitment," MailOnline reports.

Soon after, the celebrity couple took the case to the Appeal Court and received a more favourable ruling.

Lord Justice Rupert Jackson said the revelations would generate a media storm and would be harmful for the children. It would be "devastating for the claimant" and the need for privacy was stronger than the right to publish.

He added that said the couple had an "open relationship".

But the ruling seems to have done nothing to deter the social media storm that erupted in the aftermath.

After the couple was named by an American publication, the news has gone viral on Twitter. And despite the fact that the British press have been barred from publishing their names, the story has been splashed cross front pages for two days running.

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, the man at the centre of the threesome said he feels “bullied and harassed” by the celebrity.

“We have been threatened with perjury, contempt of court and prison — all for telling the truth about this threesome.

“We have had endless calls and emails from the star’s lawyers, and even had a threatening letter hand-delivered letter through our door," the man said.

"The famous couple don’t deny that it happened. But they have used the courts to cover up what the partner has done in a way they should not be used.

"We are normal human beings and have had problems and threats non-stop. What about our human rights and freedom of expression? "It is not just about this story any more — it’s a wider issue; and people like them should not be able to use the courts to stop this stuff just because they have got pots of money." "The whole thing is absolutely ridiculous." Twitter certainly seems to think so. Users have taken to the social network to share the humorous side of the worst-kept celebrity secret of 2016.
