When I say this list is about athletes who dated adult film stars, what I really mean, of course, is that it’s about athletes who probably got busy with adult film stars.
Why did we lower the bar on what it means to “date”? Well for one, “athletes who dated adult film stars” has a better ring to it than “athletes who probably got busy with adult film stars.” Plus, if we limited ourselves to athletes who really did dateadult film stars, it’d be a pretty short list.
In any case, there surely are more athletes who “dated” adult film stars than we have listed here. We are in no way under the impression that our list is comprehensive. These are just the ones we can be reasonably sure about. (Sorry, no Gronk & Bibi.)
But enough small talk. Let’s get down to business, shall we?
Former Texans offensive tackle (currently a free agent) is one of the guys who actually did date a porn star—though frankly, porn star is probably a stretch. Pornographic performer is probably more apt. Point is, he started dating Mya G (seen here) in 2011.
Unfortunately, the relationship didn't last. Rumors spread in 2012 that Butler had cheated on her. Which came as a great shock to no one.
15. Rashad Butler (Mya G)
That's right. Nate Robinson, everyone's favorite NBA midget, dated a porn star named Samone Taylor back in 2010. He denied it to protect his wholesome image, of course, and she denied it too. In fact, she made a whole YouTube video just to throw cold water on the rumors. But nobody believed her because she had already tweeted about their relationship.
14. Nate Robinson (Samone Taylor)
On the right is Dale DaBone, pornographic film actor. On the left is former world number one tennis player Jennifer Capriati. The two dated from 2003 to 2009.
In fact, DaBone told TMZ that Capriati's 2010 overdose on prescription drugs was partly related the his decision to come out of retirement and bang chicks on camera professionally again. (It was also partly related, he said, to the fact that Capriati got super bummed out every time a Grand Slam tournament was going on.)
Sad story, I know. But don't worry, Capriati is alive and well. And did I mention this guy's name is Dale DaBone?
13. Jennifer Capriati (Dale DaBone)
In case you haven't notices, pro athletes are pretty much constantly getting women pregnant and then paying them off to go away. (Need an example? Google "Dwight Howard baby mama." Or just click here.) So you gotta hand it to Washington safety Tanard Jackson. Sure, his career is probably over following his fifth positive drug test back in July, but when he knocked up adult film star Jemini back in 2010, he tried to forge a relationship with her for the good of his child.
Are they still together? Who knows. But it's the thought that counts.
12. Tanard Jackson (Jemini)
Retired MMA superstar Chuck Liddell denies ever being in a relationship with porn star Jayden James. Porn star Jayden James denies ever being in a relationship with retired MMA superstar Chuck Liddell.
Alas, nobody believes them. There are just too many photos of them together—like this one, which is supposedly from New Years Eve in Cabo in 2009...right around the time Liddell split from his wife.
11. Chuck LIddell (Jayden James)
When the rumors first started circulating back in 2008 that legendary Steelers receiver Hines Ward was, er, "dating" adult film star Lisa Ann, he denied it. And the denial was plausible.
Sure, he was photographed with her at an adult film company Christmas party. But that didn't prove anything...then.
Now? Now we know Lisa Ann is one of the most prolific sports groupies of her generation. So yeah, I feel pretty confident that these two "hooked up," as the kids say.
But let's here more about Lisa Ann...
10. Hines Ward (Lisa Ann)
Just as with Hines Ward, the only proof we have that Ohio State tight end Jeff Heuerman hooked up with porn star Lisa Ann is a photo from September 2014. But it's one hell of a photo, and it's not like we're ruining anybody's reputation by assuming these two got freaky...so here they are on the list.
9. Jeff Heuerman (Lisa Ann)
And then there's the "relationship" between Lisa Ann and Notre Dame wide receiver (and freshman) Justin Brent, widely publicized in October 2014. Not only were the two photographed getting cozy courtside at a Knicks game. Lisa Ann actually tweeted this photo of the two which, as you can tell, strongly suggests the two were "intimate."
8. Justin Brent (Lisa Ann)
And last but not really last—seriously, who knows how many athletes Lisa Ann has been with—we have her relationship with Flyers forward Michael Del Zotto. The two hooked up in 2012, and according to a recent Twitter rant by Lisa Ann, he would not stop hounding her to...set him up with all her porn star friends.
7. Michael Del Zotto (Lisa Ann)
This is probably the most suspect rumor of the whole bunch. But it was too good not to include.
You see, rumor has it that after Yu Darvish divorced the mother of his children two years ago, he started dating Japanese "AV star" Kirara Asuka.
The evidence? Well, there's not much beyond one of those Taiwanese animation videos. However, I did find one story claiming Kirara Asuka did not deny dating Darvish when asked. So that's something, right?
6. Yu Darvish (Kirara Asuka)
This one you can believe for sure. Joslyn James is the adult film star who busted the "Tiger Woods is a thirsty sex maniac" story wide open when she released all the filthy texts he sent her.
Of course, James isn't the only adult film star associated with Tiger Woods. He also allegedly dated the brains out of a Holly Sampson.
5. Tiger Woods (Joslyn James)
We're pretty sure porn star Gina Lynn has slept with several Philadelphia sports stars. We're just not entirely sure which ones.
Her ex-husband went on an Atlanta radio show with Lynn in 2012 and claimed she slept with Scottie Upshall, which whom she is pictured here, and Lynn did not deny it. In fact, she explained "I just needed sex."
Now, that fact that Lynn and her ex are doing radio shows ought to raise some red flags. It's quite possible they are just a couple of publicity whores. But Lynn has also been photographed in public with the likes of Ryan Howard and A.J. Feeley. So it would be foolish not to think she's been with some of these people.
4. Every Athlete in Philadelphia (Gina Lynn)
Her real name is Jennifer Peace, but professionally she is known as Devon Shire. And waaay back in 1994, she had an affair with Barry Bonds, got knocked up, and—unbeknownst to Rick Reilly—sued him for paternity.
Of course, there's no mention anywhere about what happened in this case, which means he probably settled out of court and paid her to shut up. Which means he probably did sleep with her, otherwise he would have let her get made the fool in court.
But here's the really interesting thing. Just months before suing Bonds, Devon Shire was in the news for a very different reason...
3. Barry Bonds (Devon Shire)
Who is Al Crowlings, you young whippersnappers ask? Al Crowlings was a journeyman NFL DE/LB who happened to be besties with O.J. Simpson. In fact, he was the guy driving the white Bronco.
At the time AC was "dating" porn star Devon Shire, and apparently he told her what O.J. told him: that he hated Ron Goldman, and that he didn't intend to murder his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, but that he flew into a rage when he went to her condo and saw him there. (Read her story here.)
2. Al Crowlings (Devon Shire)
Last, and obviously not least, we have Tito and Jenna—a former UFC champion and the most famous adult film actress of all time.
The two started dating in 2006 and Jenna "retired" from "acting" to be in a monogomous relationship with Tito. Then in 2009 she gave birth to his twin boys, Jesse and Journey.
Unfortunatley there is no happy ending here. He accused her of being a prescription drug addict. She accuted him of domestic abuse—then took it back.
Point is, they broke up.
