A Kenyan-born woman is at the centre of smoking hot football gossip in the UK.

Ted Terry, 61, spotted with Evelyn Minkey, 39

39 year old Evelyn Minkey is reportedly divorcing her husband to get married to Chelsea centre-back John Terry‘s father, Ted Terry.

Evelyn is a mum of three, but she may be expecting another child according to British tabloid The Sun. She was spotted clutching a pregnancy test kit.

The two met in November 2014 when they lived doors away from each other in Chafford Hundred, Essex. Their friendship grew and they have since moved into a different house together.


According to the same newspaper, Evelyn is in the process of divorcing her husband Stefan, 42.

Their marriage was not rosy, and last August police were called when they allegedly came to blows at Evelyn’s family home. No one was arrested.

ter5A source close to the split said: “The divorce is messy, but Ted has jumped right in. “They are really loved up and there is nothing that anyone can do.” 

Ted is already a committed step dad and has been spotted accompanying Evelyn’s kids at a sports day and at the beach.

When approached about the relationship at the home rented in Evelyn’s name, Ted said: “Just go away. Leave it yeah.”

Ted Terry separated from his wife Sue.


In 2012, Ted’s son John Terry was accused of racially abusing QPR’s Anton Ferdinand during a match. He was cleared by the court.

It is however an interesting turn of events that her stepmother is black and just 4 years older than him.
