While I hate to see a good man down, it would appear that the Top Gear host, Jeremy Clarkson, is not appearing to be such a 'good guy' these days. What can you say about the fearless host of Top Gear, other than he may be a little rough around the edges at times. His humor and vocal expression may not be to everybody's taste, and he is one of the few men who can claim was officially banned from an entire country.
Driving over the speed limit is one thing, but the Daily Mail has also accused Clarkson of using the N-word in an un-aired episode of Top Gear, and he has been under the guillotine ever since. To rub a little salt in his wounds, the Daily Mail opened up earlier this week about a pending divorce with his current wife and manager, Frances Cain.
“She is much more than just a wife. She looks after the money and even pays his income tax," said a friend of the couple. “Over the years they have had their ups and downs and it would be a lie to say that everything is rosy in the garden.
According to reports, the reasons given for Cain's decision to divorce the host include the racist media reports from last week, and rumors of several alleged affairs that have been going on over the 21 years the couple has been married. While not wanting to go all 'soap-opera' on you, Clarkson has been among many rumors of infidelity, including a love triangle involving his BBC producer, Elaine Bedell.
“Not least is the fact that Francie is fuming because she believes Jeremy is planning another Caribbean trip and is convinced one of his lady friends will be going along,“ the friend continued. "She has turned a blind eye over the years, but every so often it all gets too much for her. Currently Jeremy is very much in the dog-house and Francie is not happy with him, she is happy doing her own thing at the moment. For his part, Jeremy is miserable.”
A source close to Clarkson was approached by reporters and asked about the divorce, according to a report by the Daily Mail. The source muttered, “'Getting [divorced] and divorced are different.” So, long story short, we have no idea what is really going on. However, it sounds awfully confusing, and we wish Jezza the best of luck in sorting it all out.
