English footballer Ashley Cole has protested claims that he chatted to a blonde bombshell, and was then arrested for drunk and disorderly behavior at a top restaurant.
Cole, 28, who wanted to prove his innocence, ordered his people to track down the lady in question so as to prove that he did not misbehave with her.
"They had never met before and he has instructed his representatives to track her down to prove he didn't do anything wrong. He insists nothing went on and apparently the girl also says it was entirely innocent. She is very credible and is backing his story," the Mirror quoted a source as saying.
Lawyers have reportedly flown the woman out of the country.
The Chelsea player is already in trouble after his wife Cheryl, 25, discovered that he had broken his solemn promise not to go drinking with teammates while she was away.
The Girls Aloud singer is said to have given him a piece of her mind on March 5 when she called him up from Tanzania, where she is climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with eight other celebs for Comic Relief.
"It's been really hard physically and mentally, but I haven't once thought of giving up," Cheryl, who has struggled with altitude sickness, said.
