That’s what the National Enquirer is saying, and after the way the whole Tiger Woods scandal ended up, there’s reason to believe their reporting is accurate. As Sports by Brooks informs us, the Enquirer has sources on record saying NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Amy Reimann had an affair that broke up Reimann’s marriage with former Kentucky football player, Tommy Cook. Cook is currently a graduate assistant/coach at Kentucky after playing wide receiver for the Wildcats from ’00-’05. Reimann was a former cheerleader at Kentucky but apparently met Dale Jr. while doing some interior design work at his home. Brooks has more of the scoop on the story:
Bo Mallette, who was best man at Cook’s wedding to Reimann, claimed on the record to the Enquirer that Earnhardt and Reimann had a relationship while she was still married to Cook: “Amy got involved with Dale Earnhardt while she was still married to Tommy. Their marriage didn’t even last two years.”
Cook’s father, Tommy, Sr., also told the Enquirer: “My son’s not talking about this. All I can say is that your (Enquirer) story’s true. Amy and Dale have been involved for awhile. My boy’s over it, he’s moved on. But what happened between Amy and Dale was wrong.”
As we always say, there are two sides to every story and this information is coming from a side that’s hurt and upset. Some facts are indisputable however, and some of those facts are that Cook and Reimann are getting divorced (or already are divorced) and Dale Jr. and Amy Reimann are now “dating.” With no wins on the season, maybe Earnhardt should consider a new girlfriend to turn his track fortunes around.
UPDATE: Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Amy Reimann made their first public appearance together at the 2011 NASCAR awards.
