Supersport axe Joost over sex video

This is a sensationalist tit bit (no pun intended) of news about poor Joost van der Westhuizen. Nobody told him that if he wanted to be a sport commentator that he couldn't have sex AND video tape it. LOL!

SuperSport has axed former South African rugby captain Joost van der Westhuizen as a presenter over his admission that he starred in a sex video which showed him snorting drugs.

The admission is contained in his biography, "Joost: The Man in the Mirror".

"SuperSport has perused extracts from Joost van der Westhuizen's biography... and held discussions with him," it said in a statement on Sunday.

"Following those discussions, SuperSport and Joost have mutually agreed to terminate the freelance agreement between them, forthwith," said Supersport International spokesperson Clinton van der Berg.

"SuperSport thanks Joost for his contributions as a commentator and presenter and wishes him all the best for the future. SuperSport shall make no further comment on this matter," he said.

In March, SuperSport suspended Joost's services after 24-year-old Marilize Van Emmenis confessed to being the woman in the sex video purporting to feature Van der Westhuizen.

Until then, he had vehemently denied that it was him shown in the video, even hiring private detective Mike Bolhuis to back his claim.

He has since also reportedly told Rapport newspaper that it is indeed him in the video. "And I am very, very sorry that I lied," the newspaper quoted on Sunday from an interview with him. "Please forgive me," he asked.

Rapport wrote that in his biography Joost detailed the "hell" he had gone through living the lie which "ate me up from inside and consumed me".

He confessed that he had not only lied to the public, but to his wife, the popular entertainer Amor Vittone. - Sapa

@ Arminius, ha ha, feel free to plug away. Germany is an outstanding country and many South Africans would love the opportunity to move there if they could.
