Gold Coast Titans boss' 'fetish-porn' star wife training under-20s squad
Australia's National Rugby League club the Titans have been hit by a fresh scandal following a report that a fetish-porn star, who has overcome a drug and alcohol addiction, is training their under-20s squad.
In a further concern for the NRL and the club, it can be revealed the female in question, Kortney Olson, is the wife of recently-appointed Titans chief executive David May, the Daily Telegraph reported.
News Limited online has obtained a slew of offensive and pornographic material featuring Olson, a natural bodybuilder and fitness fanatic, found widely on a number of internet porn and bodybuilding websites.
But the Titans have defended the move, claiming Olson is only a volunteer, although the Gold Coast boss' wife claims in a personal blog on her fitness website that she is an "official employee of the Titans."
Speaking exclusively to the website, Titans boss May confirmed that he was aware of his wife's pornographic work, but said he was proud she had overcome battles with drugs and alcohol to play a respected role at the club.
"Before I met her she had issues with drugs and alcohol," May said.
"But I am very proud of Kortney and she has turned her life around.
"I love her very much, she is a beautiful person," he said.
At least two Titans staffers, furious at Olson joining the club a fortnight ago, have complained to Gold Coast management.
With May's knowledge, Olson was appointed assistant strength-and-conditioning coach to the Titans' under-20s side two weeks ago.
The 31-year-old American, who has competed in a number of bodybuilding competitions, also claims to work with the under-16s and under-18s outfits and Aboriginal kids as part of the Titans for Tomorrow program.
