London, March 15 (Calcutta Tube) After Mark Owen, his ‘Take That‘ bandmate Howard Donald has been accused of cheating his long-term partner. Donald is said to have cheated on his girlfriend Marie-Christine Musswessels, the mother of his youngest daughter Lola, before they split in late 2009.
[ReviewAZON asin=”0393326020″ display=”inlinepost”]Merith Van Onselen alleges she had an affair with the singer while he was still involved with Musswessels, reports dailystar.co.uk.
She revealed that they met when he was working as a DJ in Berlin, Germany, in July, 2008. They had an eight-month affair after he bombarded her with saucy e-mails.
Van Onselen, who has now split from her husband, said: ‘The first time I met him I told him I was married and he pulled a sad face. I thought that was the end of it. We kept running into each other at different DJ nights. He would say I was beautiful and special.
‘Then one day I gave in. It was the start of a passionate relationship. Howard spoke a lot about feeling guilty about Marie. He was so confused and kept saying to me, ‘Look at the big picture, you are married and I am still in a relationship.”
Van Onselen claims the romance ended in October, shortly before the star split from his girlfriend.
