London, Apr 10 (ANI): The French model, who allegedly had an affair with England captain John Terry, has said that the media projected her like a "prostitute".
Vanessa Perroncel said Britain's tabloid press "went mad" as the clamour for an interview went into overdrive.
The 34-year-old model said she was left hurt by some of the claims made about her.
Perroncel, who has a three-year-old son with Terry's former team-mate Wayne Bridge, triggered a tabloid frenzy in January when claims of her affair with the Chelsea captain came out in the open.
"They made out that I'm some kind of prostitute. That's really what they're saying. And the stories are untrue. They have gone mad. Who are they to do this?" Sky News quoted her as telling the Guardian.
The underwear model revealed that soon after the revelation of her affair, journalists inundated her Surrey home.
"Masses of journalists are outside my door. And they ring the bell, and I say no, and they keep doing it and doing it. They're putting notes through the letter box, offering me money and then more money," she said.
"I have my three-year-old son, he keeps asking who are these bad men taking pictures. I just tried to go on as if nothing was happening. I told him not to look at them," she added. (ANI)
