According to British tabloid newspapers, Clarkson is having an affair with a coworker during the Top Gear Live World tour. Before you jump to any conclusions, its not a menage a trois between Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. No the affair is said to be between Clarkson and Phillipa Sage, a production assistant on the Top Gear live shows.
Reports suggest that Clarkson and Sage have been spotted kissing in public and even sharing hotel rooms while on tour.
Clarkson and Sage have so far called the accusation as “nonsense.” Clarkson said he was shocked to find himself as “the next Tiger Woods.” However, Sage’s remark that it is not unusual for Top Gear colleagues to share hotel rooms, might not sit that well with Frances Clarkson, wife of Jeremy and mother of their three children.
Top Gear is currently under a lot of hot water for their recent remarks about Mexicans and are also facing a lawsuit from Tesla for wrongfully representing their product.
This latest case is currently just tabloid news, and we hope it stays just that. It would be a shame to lose a show like Top Gear over something like this.
