Jack Grealish has reportedly been dating Love Island star Amber Gill as well as Emily Atack – despite his girlfriend Sasha Attwood giving the footballer an ultimatum over his secret meetings with other women.
According to The Sun, the footballer, 26, has had a number of secret meetings with Amber, 24, but she is said to be heartbroken at the thought that he may have been seeing Emily, 31, at the same time.
Amber is said to have told a friend: ‘I’d like to get in touch with Emily and find out if there was any crossover. We’ve met up several times and were messaging a lot. I really thought there was something between us.’

The publication reports that Jack charmed Amber on Instagram which lead to several clandestine dates in recent months.
A source said: ‘Amber has been in contact with Jack for a while after they first got in touch online, and since then they’ve met up several times over the past few months at hotels, including one in Leeds.
‘She was clearly quite excited about it, she told her friends, but after the news about Jack and Emily came out recently the whole thing feels a lot less glamorous.’
The insider added that the pair never had a proper relationship but Amber is disappointed to think he may have been in contact with several other women at the same time as she really liked him.

Dates: Jack has reportedly had a number of secret meetings with Amber, 24, but she is said to be heartbroken at the thought that he may have been seeing Emily at the same time
The Manchester City star is said to have formed a close friendship Emily over the past six weeks, with Sasha finding out after England’s 5-0 win against Albania on Friday.
According to The Sun, Jack played down his relationship with the former Inbetweeners actress and insisted they are just friends, after Sasha told him: ‘It’s me or her.’
A source said: ‘Sasha has been rocked by news of Jack’s secret friendship. She had no idea. Jack has apologised to her for any upset caused, and they were due to meet to discuss their future.
‘Jack is really confused. On the one hand, he’s being advised to stay loyal to his childhood sweetheart for all sorts of reasons — commercial and otherwise.

‘But on the other, he’s intoxicated by Emily’s company. He can’t seem to stay away from her. Plus loads of his club mates have crushes on Emily too — so they’re saying something different.’
MailOnline contacted representatives of Jack Grealish and Emily Atack for comment.
It is understood social media influencer Sasha had been cheering Jack on during the game with Jordan Pickford’s wife Megan Davison before hearing the heartbreaking news.

Jack now seemingly finds himself with a big decision to make – whether to dump Sasha, his girlfriend of ten years, for Emily after becoming ‘besotted’ with her.
Emily has since been attacked by social media trolls who branded her ‘desperate’ and accused her of ‘breaking girl code’ over her secret dates with Jack.
The star was subject to the abuse online as she enjoyed a break in Paris with her sister Martha and her mother Kate.

One wrote: ‘Are you that desperate that you go after other women’s men?’
Another said: ‘Emily Atack. The girl every girl hates because she isn’t a girl’s girl. Imagine chasing after someone else’s man.’
A third commented: ‘Emily failed the girl code test.’
The Mail On Sunday revealed last weekend that Emily has grown fond of England’s first £100 million footballer, but thought he was single when she was introduced to him by another England player some weeks ago.
Emily told friends that she had also seen him on the celebrity dating app Raya and presumed he was no longer in a relationship with Sasha.

One told The Mail on Sunday: ‘Jack is besotted with Emily… she really likes him too – otherwise, of course, she wouldn’t have met up with him.’
They continued: ‘She did also think he was single – it is what you expect if you see someone on a site looking for a girlfriend.
‘Emily has really enjoyed his company recently, but she certainly isn’t going to hang around if he stays with his girlfriend.
‘She will happily get on with her life if that’s what he wants to do. It’s up to him now.’
Sasha was said to be ‘devastated’ after learning he had met Emily both at her North London home and at Manchester’s five-star Lowry Hotel.
Sasha had been cheering Jack on in his match against Albania with Pickford’s wife and had enjoyed a ‘festive girlie day’ earlier on Friday at London’s Corinthia Hotel.

The pair posted images on Instagram of themselves eating brunch, drinking hot chocolate and enjoying the spa facilities.
However, Sasha appeared to be in hiding after failing to return to the Corinthia with Megan, the paper reported.
Emily has previously dated former One Direction singer Harry Styles and ex-Big Brother heart-throb Ziggy Lichman.
When appearing on I’m A Celebrity alongside Harry Redknapp, who went on to win, she asked him if his son, footballer-turned-pundit Jamie, would go out with her after the show.
A friend of Emily’s told The Sun of her communications with the England player: ‘Emily watched Jack in the Euros and thought he was fit.

‘And for his part, Jack has been a fan of hers since she starred as Charlotte ‘Big Jugs’ Hinchcliffe in The Inbetweeners.
‘They started DMing on Instagram before swapping numbers, and taking it on to WhatsApp and FaceTime. Jack’s been calling her almost every day and has been pretty open about it.
‘They’ve become really good mates, are FaceTiming loads and he’s like a little puppy dog around her. It’s very sweet. They have a real laugh together.’
Since swapping numbers in September, Jack and Emily are said to have hung out at the Lowry hotel in Manchester ahead of City’s win against Brugge.
Emily was visiting nearby Salford at the time while touring the country with her comedy show, Emily Atack Has Left The Group.

While Emily currently follows Jack on Instagram, he does not follow her back.
